clue: What is the meaning of the goo game? Page 266.

explanation: Hubbard's book Dianetics was the guide to the Church of Scientology, which he founded. The clue spoofs the famous commercials for that book, which ask in white letters on a plain black screen such questions as, "What is the meaning of life?

solved by: Matthew Preston, Denise Sawicki, Mike Eberhart, Dave Mitzman, Lori Lancaster, Aaron Fischer, Kelly Stokes, Amir H. Sufyani, Andy Hubbartt, and Steve Elliser
