Keyword Challenge #2
If any player posts a valid post with the secret Keyword in it, he or she will win a free item! The word is a potentially everyday word. (So, it's not 'hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia'.) Word lists do not count. The word must be found in a sentence inside a valid post. This has a good history of promoting activity, so let's see some interesting stories! (Update: remember that the post does not have to be about the game. Also, any tense of the word will work as well [*-s, *-ing, *-ed, *-like, etc. will all do.) This Challenge lasts until the end of the game.

POINTS AND INVENTORIES..........Updated Wednesday, 13:43 EDT.
Allikat73126 = 13 (FIRED)
huckingfoes = 4
Kaipper = 14
max318 = 21 (subtract 8 when scoring)
TallGuy = 23
TheLegend = 4 | Employment Insurance, Clawshot

THE BOSS = 41 FP (asteroidbelt = 2, checkndone = 3, divarenee = 3, Flutterdash = 3, Thekid4 = 2, Coolnine9 = 7, dcf525 = 2, kitty-cat = 0, themasterbrain = 1, hermygranger123 = 5, Jayo = 3, scrub88 = 0, braingle01 = 0, faheem1 = 6, Allikat73126 = 4)

In the previous round, the Boss earned 15 - n, where n is the number of valid posts a fired player made.
In this round, the Boss will earn 17 - n.

Okay I believe we did get a majority on me last round I was not fired so i am not the boss. That means we have 3 people to choose from huckingfoes, legend, and Tallguy. I think the memo clears legend so only huckingfoes and Tallguy are left. Tallguy might also be cleared from the memo since I used the clues to point to him last round so huckingfoes is my vote this round

We are always sometimes monsters.

Hmm, I'm at a loss. I thought for sure if it wasn't max then it would have to be allikat. And those clues all seemed to point to max! I really hope everyone voted for who they said they voted for.

Max, oddly enough you left out Kaipper from all your suggestions. It was pointed out before - Kaipper has a few trivia quizzes that are nintendo related - Super Mario Galaxy, Nintendogs, Animal Crossings, etc. I'll vote Kaipper unless we can make progress otherwise

Don't tell me that all the clues inescapeably pointing to max, was a coincidence!
Also, I don't believe we get a majority on max last round, because we're 6 and in order to win 4 of us must vote for him because the rules say "The Boss must receive more than 50% of the votes to be fired.", and 3 of us didn't vote for max :
The Rat
So I'm voting max this round, unless someone explains how the 4 clues are related to Kaipper, TallGuy or Huckingfoes.

Clue #5: the big screen

"The big screen" usually refers to movies but I can't find a link there with anybody. I think Legend may be right about all the clues pointing to max, or he may just be the rat trying to divert attention from the boss?

I don't suspect huckingfoes as the clues pointing to him would be far too simple, which is not usually the way jarmihi mods - admittedly they make me look suspicious but since I am not the boss, that leaves max and tallguy. Since we cleared max last round, I think tallguy is the boss and Legend is his rat.

That's exactly why I think max is the boss, jarmihi is not that stupid to give us lousy clues.
So, again, unless someone connected the clues properly to TallGuy, I'm voting max.
btw, why are you saying that we cleared max ?

EDIT : If max is not the boss, then jarmihi is a genius for making clues that could be interpreted in 2 ways.

But it could be genius. The mod knows would pass over that therefor might have done that.
Well hopefully there is a next round and the rat was fired if not you should have listened to me of I counted right I was cleared due to I got 50 percent of the vote in which as long as tallguy voted and nobody was the rat we should get foes because she wasn't fired and didnakt post
