Welcome to Round 4.

The answer to last round's trivia question was 120.
The two passengers together have 20 toes.
Each dog and cat has 10 toes on their front legs and 8 toes on their back legs, so they have 18 toes each.
There are 2 dogs and 3 cats, so together they have 5*18 = 90 toes.
The driver also has 10 toes.
That gives a total of 120 toes.

I'm a bit busy at the moment, so there may not be a trivia question this round. I'll keep you updated.

Dang! Forgot about the driver. I knew there had to be a trick. There was no way it was going to be as simple as I had laid it out. Good teaser Chunnie.
We know 4wheels was a mansatory firing as she told us in the last roynd. Pianis was active enou he had to be optional

Maybe the dog only brings the ball back because he thinks you like throwing it.

 Posted: 10:43AM Feb 27, 2013

No surprise for either firing, since the clearing clue definitely pointed to PianistChris. BTW, HABS, thanks for solving the trivia question as far as you did. I used your answer and added 10 for the driver and was finally right.

Now I have to go back and look over a previous game. Seems to me there was mention of favorite ice cream flavors in that game as well.

Bobbi, that part of it was asy. Not sure why I forgot to include the driver, when my furst answer was wrong I figured the animals were not in the car. Wrong again!

I'll join the Bradon vote for now, unless something comes up to point elsewhere

YAY...our clear is gone.
Obviously that was sarcasim.

I am still not convinced that it is not a canadian...
If is is not Bradon, it is either HABS or HP.

I know HABS keeps saying that it would be a pain to cross the border and get stuck at customs....BUT it is insaine to wake your children at 11pm and go get ice cream and go swimming....HELLO???? Does this not sound crazy to anyone else?
Also what about you should no go swimming after you eat. I would venture to say ALL people have heard that one, and supposidly ice cream is the worst.
I am not saying the boss has crazy bad parents, but I am saying they would be the type to venture across the border.

Another thing to look at......PERHAPS the Big Boy the boss is refrencing is not the chain restraunt.

Like what you love, and love what you got.
HABS2933

 Posted: 04:00PM Feb 27, 2013

Trademark and licensing restrictions would not allow another restaurant to be named "Big Boy" unless it was affiliated with the chain, so my guess would be it is the chain.

I think the swimming thing refers to "don't go swimming on a full stomach, but I could be mistaken. Not that it has anything to do with finding the boss.

I guess you could be right LH, but I don't see it. I cross the border at lot now as an adult and know what a pain it is. The first time I crossed the border as a child was when I was 12 and we flew to Florida for March Break. I think it was that summer that we drove across for the first time and we went to Cedar Point.

True, unless the Boss is older and this was befor copyright and trademarks laws were implemented.
I am not sure when that was.

Not sure why you would Fleet, but whatever. You have yet to have a "good" reason for any of your votes other than "it sounds suspicious" without ever defining why you-think something sounds off.

While I don't think you are the boss, I have a feeling you could be the rat (isn't that what you thought I was last round - and that I was protecting PianistChris?

People who play with me know I don't lie in the discussions. So it would be hard for me to be the boss:

1) Boss used ages 6-10 in the memo. I just stated I didn't cross the border until I was 12, my brother was even older.
2) I have stated emphatically that I do not watch much TV (less than 2 hrs a week)
3) As I stated before, my parents worked long hours and most of them were in the evenings or weekends. My mother was an overnight nurse in a private home (so worked 11pm-7am) and once my father retired from the Army he was a real estate agent - so again he would have worked mostly evenings and weekends as that is when clients are available to look at places.
4) and I stick by my border claim, I currently have a "trusted traveler" pass and it lets me skip customs almost entirely- yet is still takes 2-3 hrs to get across the bridge sometimes. My parents would never have donen that.

By 1979 there were more than a thousand Big Boy restaurants in the U.S. and Canada[9], and about 20 franchisees. Shoney's, Elias Brothers and Frisch'sâ€”charter franchiseesâ€”controlled the vast majority.

Big Boy developed named franchisees in several ways. Very quickly the Big Boy name and even the Big Boy character were being widely used without permission.

THE FOLLOWING MAKES FOR SOME INTERESTING READING AS IT GOES INTO ALL OF THE VARIATIONS AND DATES OF BIG BOY'S HISTORY

Named Big Boy Franchisees are listed below with territories, time span, founders and additional notes, as known:

Abdow's (Massachusetts, Connecticut, 1959â€“1994, founded by George and Ron Abdow) now defunct, many
converted to Elixi Corp's Bickfords Family Restaurants or remain vacant.

Azar's (Northern Indiana, Colorado, founded by George and Alex Azar) One Azar's Big Boy remains in operation in Ft. Wayne, IN. Alex Azar became an original member of the Big Boy Board of Directors.

Becker's (Buffalo & Rochester, NY area before TJ's, 1956-?, founded by Abe Becker) Shoney's opened a restaurant in Rochester in the mid 50s which may have became Becker's Big Boy.[12])

Bob's (California, Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Indiana and Pennsylvania turnpike and airport locations operated in several states by the Marriott Corp., 1936+, founded by Robert C. "Bob" Wian) The original Big Boy chain, which in Wian's time was confined to Southern California, Arizona and Nevada. Because Marriott developed and acquired Big Boy restaurants elsewhere, principally the northeastern U.S., "Bob's" developed a more diverse territory and identity. Presently, "Bob's" is again used only in Southern California, and no others under the domain of Big Boy Restaurants International are permitted to use franchise names for public identity. Wian became the original chairman of the Big Boy Board of Directors.

Bud's (Minnesota, Montana, Idaho, founded by Bud & Jean Rodberg)
Eat'n Park (metro Pittsburgh, 1949â€“1975, founded by Larry Hatch & William Peters) Hatch and Peters were supervisors at Isaly's in Pittsburgh.[13] On Isaly's business in Cincinnati, Hatch saw the success of the Frisch's Big Boy Drive-In prompting contact with founder Bob Wian, who needed national exposure to gain national trademark protection.[14] Eat'n Park soon became the second Big Boy franchisee. When the 25 year franchise agreement expired Eat'n Park dropped Big Boy, attributed to the loss of drive-in popularity.[15]

Elby's (Northern West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, 1956â€“1984, 1988â€“2000, founded by George, Ellis and Michael Boury) Named after ELlis BourY. Originally acquired the Big Boy rights to northern West Virginia through Shoney's[12]. In 1966 Elby's expanded Big Boy into bordering Ohio counties, licensed through Frisch's, and into Pennsylvania. A long running trademark battle with Frisch's[16] over Ohio operations caused Elby's to drop Big Boy affiliation in Ohio in 1971, and for all Elby's units in 1984 when Shoney'sâ€”franchisor for Elby's West Virginia storesâ€”broke affiliation. Opened units in Maryland and Virginia after leaving Big Boy. Elby's was sold to Elias Brothers in 1988 becoming Big Boy again. Although officially stripped of the Elby's name[11], identity was so strong that the Elby's name continued in print advertisements.[17] The last remaining Elby's closed in 2000 in response to the Elias Brothers financial crisis.

Elias Brothers (Michigan, Northeastern Ohio, Ontario, Canada, 1952â€“2000, founded by Fred, John and Louis Elias) In 1938 the brothers opened Fred's Chili Bowl in Detroit and later the Dixie Drive-In in Hazel Park, which would become the first Elias Brothers Big Boy. Considered the "first official franchisee"[18] because they were the first to formally apply to Bob Wian. Worked with Wian, Schoenbaum and Manfred Bernhard to create the iconic 1956 Big Boy character design and launch the comic book. Owned the Big Boy parent from 1987 through 2000. Many units continue operations but none use Elias Brothers name. Fred Elias became an original member of the Big Boy Board of Directors.

Franklin's (Eastern Pennsylvania, 1966-1985, founded by Marvin Franklin) Subfranchised by and originally operated as Elby's. After dropping Big Boy affiliation, Franklin's adopted a Benjamin Franklin theme renaming the signature hamburger "Big Boy" as "Big Ben". Sold the 12 unit chain to Hershey's Foods & Friendly's Restaurants in 1985.
Frejlach's (Illinois before Top's, 1954-196?, founded by Irvin Frejlach) Added Big Boy to their established chain of ice cream shops.[19] Unlike other franchisees, the stores didn't directly use the Big Boy name; they remained Frejlach's Ice Cream Shoppes not Frejlach's Big Boy.[20] Irvin's brother Lucian "Lou" Frejlach became an original member of the Big Boy Board of Directors.

Frisch's (Ohio, Kentucky, S. Indiana, Tennessee; Florida until the early 1990s, 1948+, founded (as Big Boy) by David Frisch) The Cincinnati restaurant chain and first franchisee, began serving Big Boy hamburgers in 1948; Frisch's now operates 88 Big Boys & franchises 32 Big Boys to others. Frisch's subfranchised to Azar's and Manners, which used the Frisch's styled Big Boy, and also licensed Elby's to operate two Big Boy units in the upper Ohio Valley until 1971.[16]

JB's (Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Montana, South Dakota, Wyoming, Washington, California, New Mexico, Nebraska, Kansas, New Jersey); 1961â€“1988, founded by Jack M. Broberg) In 1984 JB's attempted to break from Big Boy but settled in exchange for additional territory. Citing the sale of Big Boy to Elias Brothers, in 1988 JB's allowed its Big Boy franchise to expire, removing 107 units from the Big Boy system. Currently 22 JB's Restaurants operate in six states.

JB's (Canada - Ontario, Alberta and Quebec, 1969â€“1979, founded by John Bitove, Sr.) Bitove, a well known Canadian businessman, was the franchisee for Canada generally, along with Roy Rogers Roast Beef restaurants, both Marriott owned brands. JB's of Canada grew to 32 Big Boy restaurants before selling to Elias Brothers.[21]

Kebo's (Seattle & Tacoma, Washington area before Leo's, JB's and Bob's, ?-1974, founded by W. Keith Grant.) Kebo came from the owners, Keith, Ed and BOb. Two units were sold to JB's in 1974.

Ken's (Maryland - suburban Washington DC, 1963-?, founded by Bill Bemis) named in honor of Bill Bemis' father Ken Bemis, who founded the White Log Coffee Shop chain. "Ken's" became "Bob's" in the late 1960s.

Kip's (Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, 1958â€“1991, founded Fred Bell, Thomas W. Holman & James Reed) Bell owned & operated Kip's of Texas, while Holman and Reed owned & operated Kip's of Oklahoma & Kansas [22]) Acquired by Frisch's in 1972. Kip's territory was transferred to Liggett/Big Boy Restaurants International in 2001. Bell became an original member of the Big Boy Board of Directors.

Lendy's (Western Virginia, 1959â€“1964, founded by Leonard Goldstein) Owned by Goldstein but operated as Shoney's 1955-1959. Territory conflict with Yoda's and concurrent franchise with Kentucky Fried Chicken prompted Lendy's to leave Big Boy.[23][24]

Leo's (Spokane, Washington; Montana, 1966-1971, founded by Leo A. Hansen, Jr.) Acquired by and renamed JB's in 1971.

Manners (Northeastern Ohio (Cleveland TV market), 1954â€“1979, founded by Robert L. and Ramona Manners) franchisee through Frisch's, used the Frisch styled mascot design. Like Frisch's, Manners was already established having opened Manners Drive-In in 1939, 15 years before becoming a Big Boy franchisee.[25] Paid Frisch's \$10 per month for each location. In 1968 Manners Big Boy was sold to Consolidated Foods (now known as Sara Lee Corporation). Marriott purchased the 39 units in 1974 and five years later dropped the name "Manners".[26]

Marc's (Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, 1958â€“1995, founded by Ben Marcus and Gene Kilberg) were owned by the Marcus Corporation. Some were sold, others were converted to Marc's Cafe & Coffee Mill and later Annie's American Cafe. Most now operate as Perkins.

McDowell's (North Dakota, 1954-1960 independently as "Big Boy Drive-Inn", 1960+ as franchise, founded by Harley McDowell) A trademark infringement suit against McDowell was filed by Wian in 1959[10] ultimately resulting in a franchise agreement. Operates exclusively as a drive through. McDowell's name was dropped and
the remaining store is now called the Bismarck Big Boy.

Mr. B's (New Hampshire, 1963-1969[27], founded by Manfred Bernhard)[28][29]

Shoney's (Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, West Virginia, Maryland, Missouri, New York, Philadelphia, PA, 1952â€“1985, founded by Alex Schoenbaum), Originally called the Parkette, in 1952 it became Parkette Big Boy Shoppes. In 1954, a public contest for a new name resulted in Parkette becoming Shoney's,[30] which was also a reference to founder Alex "Shoney" Schoenbaum. Shoney's was a charter Big Boy franchisee and by 1984 became the largest franchisee operating 392 Shoney's Big Boy units. Shoney's also subfranchised to Becker's,[12] Elby's,[12] Yoda's and Lendy's.).[31] Shoney's dropped its relationship with Big Boy in 1984 in order to expand into neighboring states where other franchisees owned the trademark. Schoenbaum became an original member of the Big Boy Board of Directors.

Ted's (Rhode Island, Massachusetts)

TJ's (Rochester & Syracuse, NY, founded by Anthony T. Kolinski, John Gazda & John Giamartino, 1972-?)[32] The four stores were purchased by Big Boy (Elias Brothers). The two Rochester stores were closed in 1992, and one Syracuse store was sold to a local investor.

Tops (Illinois, 1966-1993)
Tote's (St. Louis area before Shoney's, founded by Edward R. Todtenbier)

Vip's (New Mexico, Texas, Oregon, 1962-1972. founded by Daniel T. Hogan & James O'Conner[33]) Purchased by and renamed JB's in 1972.

Yoda's (Western Virginia, founded by Jack Young & Bill Schroeder) Young was Leonard Goldstein's (Lendy's) brother-in-law. Merged with Lendy's.[24]
There were various franchisees and subfranchisees who operated under another franchisee's name or simply as Big Boy.

Big Boy of Florida[34] (Exclusive rights to the Central Florida territory) Now defunct.

Mady's Big Boy of Windsor, Ontario was not a franchisee, though sometimes identified as one and using a
similar looking mascot.[35] In 1965 Bob Wian sued Mady for trademark infringement but failed because (his)
Big Boy was judged not widely known in Canada. The case is considered important in Canadian and international trademark law. In 1973 Elias Brothers bought Mady's and established an Elias Big Boy on Mady's original site.[36] John Bitove, Sr. owned the rights to Big Boy for the remainder of Canada, which he sold to Elias Brothers in 1979.[21]

Outside of North America, Big Boy Japan owns and operates 296 locations (as of September 2007) throughout Japan under four restaurant names: Big Boy (199 stores), Milky Way (50), Victoria Station (43), and Grill Dan (4).[37] The Japanese Big Boy Restaurants don't offer the Big Boy hamburger or most other American Big Boy menu items, offering a distinct menu instead.[38] They also offer beer and wine.[38]

I looked up the locations on the Big Boy site which while it listed current locations, obviously did not go into detail about where they used to be. If there was ever one in London,I have no idea where it was.

 Posted: 05:51PM Feb 27, 2013

I have no problem with you clearing me, so feel free to do so.

I, for one, find myself agreeing with LH that our boss is HABS. I hadn't bothered to do any research on the TV shows mentioned since I am familiar with Shark Tank, which I occasionally watch on ABC network here, but decided to check the other two out. Bar Rescue premiered on Spike TV network and American Restoration airs on The History channel. Habs has previously told us that The History channel is what she watches most. Since our boss had to be honest, and since HABS has told us these kind of programs are what she predominantly watches, I think that's where my vote has to go. If I was asked to answer that question honestly, I would have to say my favorite TV show is Parenthood, and that type of show (I just recently watched the entire series of Brothers and Sisters on Netflix, loved it!) I am not interested in restoring or rescuing anything, antiques or bars.

I'm not sure how many more rounds we have, so if you want to clear me this round I won't object, but I think we would be better served to clear or peg HABS. Voting HABS.

Yeah the whole 2 hrs of TV I watch a week. The only show I try to ensure I watch every week is Big Bang Theory.
I'm leaning Bradon, more because I don't suspect Fleet or LH as boss - either may be the rat though, so that really only leaves Bradon. As she pointed out, we don't have a lot of rounds left, so we should be aiming at the boss.
The clues don't fit me at all.
1) As I stated here, and elsewhere I don't speak to my sibblings and could really not care less how they are doint in the present - why would I care what they are doing in the future. I can honeslty say the I speak to tem only for our parents' sake. As soon as mom and dad are no longer around, I plan to sever all ties with my siblings (well except one).
2) No Big Boys here
3) I don't watch TV
4) I like MooseTracks (as stated in the game Bradon referenced when the boss claimed mint chocolate chip as a fav ice cream.

Go ahead and vote for me but it is a waste of time.

I am thinking LH might be the boss, as the post about the Big Boys in Canada is time subjective, she would have to know how old both Canadians are, and if they lived by any where near the big boys at the time.there is a lot of guess work in that post, that could either be a deception or a really good analysis and might have them both.

but i need more facts since no-one actually said i am voting for this person i will say locking in a vote for LH

LH knows how old I am (as do most people on here I think) I am not sure how old HP is, but think he is young enough that all the Big Boys would have been gone before he was old enough to remember having gone. As I stated earlier, there may have been one in London, but if there was, I have no idea where it was.

. BTW, HABS, thanks for solving the trivia question as far as you did. I used your answer and added 10 for the driver and was finally right.

If I were the boss, why would I have publicly solved as much of the question as I did? I had no idea who the clue would clear any more than anyone else did. One player had already been cleared, it would be pretty stupid of me to help solve the puzzle to give you a second clear. I would not have assisted in a 2nd clear. My two guesses were 110 and 10.

Okay. Definitely no trivia this round. To make up, next round (should it come to that), the reward for solving the trivia will be a boss clue.

Like 90% sure it's LH. It doesn't make sense for a Canadian to cross the border, knowing what my family has to go through every time we attempt to. LH already admitted she knows of big boys when she was in Cali, so she makes a lot of sense. Still keeping my vote on Brandon for now, but I advise Brandon to vote LH

Keep getting autocorrect

Plus it would be a huge slap in the face for a Canadian to choose shark tank to mention over dragons den which is 100x better

Actually changing to LH, she got way too obvious this round reading through her posts

The boss fired the cleared player. If the boss solved the trivia they would have gotten the clue at the end of the round just like we did. It was a simple clue, easily Googled right to the Straights of Gibralter. Chris right out said he was from Gibralter. That was a given firing for a boss with the slightest experience in this game.
Even if the boss did not get the clue.....I would have fired him too. He was not a suspect so an easy one to oust.

Like I stated above my suspects are HABS, Bradon, and less likely HP.

To potter.....I do know HABS age and the dates of the Big Boy in Canada coinside with her childhood.
As do the dates of Big Boy and upstate new York and Bobbi's childhood.

Like what you love, and love what you got.

For the record, LH, I live in the Southern tier of WNY, approximately 65 miles South of Buffalo and approximately 125 miles from Rochester, and I was born here and lived here for the first 21 years of my life until I married and went with my husband to Columbus, Ohio for 3 years, then back here. There has never been a Big Boy here or within 65 miles of here and to this day we still don't even have a Starbucks in the area, if that tells you anything.

However, feel free to vote for me if you wish. I'm not the boss, I'm not the rat. If we have a couple more rounds, then please, vote for me and when I'm cleared, then let's vote HABS.

Triple post

Once I got what I think are the votes organized in a list, I decided to stay out of any majority this round because the way things stand nothing is going to be accomplished with the way the votes are spread out.

I will repeat what I've been saying, I welcome being cleared or will join a vote to clear/nab HABS, but I won't join a 2 vote majority for anyone. LH, I've skimmed your posts and I don't see a stated vote, but I'm tired so could have missed it. I'll check back in the morning. If I've missed any vote changes please let me know and I'll fix if there is time before the round ends.

That wouldn't mean much here, If you had said there is no Tim's that would mean something. There are lots of small to mid-sized cities/towns without a Starbucks, but even small cities have more than one Tims. In London we have (maybe) 7 Starbucks, but over 50 Timmies

Bradon - I am fairly certain that LH is voting for me. The way she has been pushing it.

Ok, I will switch to LH... as well. What if LH is rat though?...

)What an odd question Fleet. she is the rat? The game goes on like usual. But I would not be surprised to learn she is. She has been pushing the vote toward me for awhile now. She bases it on my my age partially stating I am in the right age catne, that bradon is also in that age grouping. Yet somehow she thinks it makes,more sense for my patents to drive an hour to the border and spend who knows how long on the trip than it does for Bradon's parents to make the sdrive whiyh based on her distance of 65 miles to Buffalo would take a lot less time than us going to Pt. Gra She says she lived wherever it is that she is from until she was 21. That doesn't mean they never left the area. Obviously, unless Lh) is the boss these trips the boss went on with their family took place in the summer (given the swimming comment). When we were kids we went to sleepaway canp for 2 weeks, played sports (I played fastball and soccer), we travelled to baseball tournaments my brother was in (2-3 per summer) as well to his games which were all over SW Ontario. Then we would go on holiday for anywhere between 1-2 weeks depending on my mother's schedule. Not sure wgere we'd find the time for a random trip for ice cream. And given how otherwise "\$poiled" we were, ice cream and swimming would not be that big a deal.

I actually voted for Harry. I wanted to see what votes were stated.

My childhood might coorilate to Big Boys in Texas, BUT Texas is HUGE. There never was and still is not a Big Boy in West Texas. I grew up in Midland/Odessa area.

My first experience with Big Boy was actually a movie where the Big BOy sign gets destroyd and rolls down the street. I then saw my first one in person when I moved to Cali. I was 20 at that time. I have never eaten at one as I do not eat greasy food.

Harry might be 90% sure I am the boss, But I am 90% sure he is the rat. And one of us is wrong LOL

Like what you love, and love what you got.

While Texas may in fact be very large, at 696,200 sq km it is still only 65% as large as Ontario which is over 1,076,000 sq km.So if your theory of yrs TX has Big Bots but is so large. . . Then the same could be used to clear both H p and,me. TO get from where we lived to where our cottage was was over a 12 hour drive. (Just to give you an idea of size and distance).
Just because someone avoids that food as an adult does not preclude them from having eayen it as a child. I have never eaten a meal at big boy so can't comment on the quality of their food but there has to be a reason so many of them closed, From whst I've heard I'd rather eat at Harvey's and I HATE Harveys. I'm so pivky taking me out to eay is a nightmare and would have been 1000x worse as a child.
Guess we just have to wait and see who is left.

Random question for pottercrazy, I was just on Facebook and a friend who lives in Bath was talking about Red Nose Day and the "dressing-up outfit" she was making for her son. I didn't want to admit to not knowing what it was since everyone else seemed to know. Whst is it and why do you wear a costume for it? Is it like what we do for hallowe'en?
