HOUSE CUP 2017 MEGA - POPULARITÉ RESULTS: ROUND 3 - FINAL


Image


Good morning/evening All and welcome to this - the results for the third and final round of MEGA Popularité for this year's House Cup! This Round we had 30 this round. Despite a reasonable turn out this round, participation was somewhat patchy. Team How to Train Your Dragon continue to adopt their 'less is more' approach to participation (it's kinda worked for them so far...) and after two rounds of participation domination, Team Lion King's representation appears to have simply collapsed :( leaving Team Spirited Away to take out the honours with an astounding 46% participation rate this round. How will all this work out in terms of points scored? Let's see...

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Every care has been taken to ensure the interpretations of the answers to the questions for this round were performed on a fair manner based on fact and reasonable research and assumptions. The final decision however on how the answers are recorded and aggregated is mine and into which no correspondence will be entered.

1. Something you might add to coffee
2. A national flag that bears a symbol other than a moon or star
3. A kind of cake (excl. chocolate)
4. An item directly associated with a superhero (excl. Batman's Batmobile because I just used it as an example :P)
5. A sign of the Chinese zodiac
6. A choice of pet that may generally be considered strange
7. A famous actress of the 20th Century
8. A colour that you might dye your hair (excl. natural colours)
9. A chronic health condition (excl. cancer)
10. A common diagnostic procedure a doctor might perform
11. A male first name commencing with the letter 'D'
12. Something you might experience in a dream
13. An infamous criminal
14. A popular piece of classical music (please include the composer and the name of the composition).
15. The best Judge of the House Cup 2017
