solved by: Russ Wilhelm, Steve West, LaVonne Lemler, Chris Lemler, Justin Woods, Matthew Preston, Joanna Woods, Denise Sawicki, Lori Lancaster, and Kelly Lee

trivia: Scott normally has a strict rule about the game including celebrities only, even if the definition of "celebrity" is stretched to include local fame. Thus, Funeratic members (regular people) are normally only eligible to become goos if they do something to earn fame, such as baseball pitcher Justin Hampson. The many incorrect guesses for "Scott Hardie's mom" over the years were sufficient justification for this goo, especially since the goo was intended as a joke at the end of a series of do-over goos.

Do Overs: We all make mistakes, but now you get to fix them. These ten goos were all incorrect guesses made for other previous goos, giving you a chance to guess right what was once guessed wrong.
