trivia: In the early days of the game, certain celebrities kept being submitted as guesses: For technology goos, Bill Gates was frequently guessed, even though he had already been a goo. If it was a television or lifestyle goo, Martha Stewart's name often came up. And if it was a crime goo, O.J. Simpson was usually guessed at least once. Inspired by this, I deliberately made a goo of O.J. Simpson (2002), followed a few weeks later by Martha Stewart. Together these goos began the tradition of "do-over" goos that continues to this day, using incorrect guesses as inspiration. –Scott Hardie
