I actually got some of these wrong. At least I think I did. Maybe I shouldn't have been writing the initials for quiz.

So, let's find something that just barely squeaks along the bottom of the graph:

And now if we compare that to blag, we see how ridiculously low blag is compared to blog:

The commie hat is a nice touch.
The scholars tell us that God drives a Plymouth Fury, for it is written in Jeremiah 32:37: "He drove them out of the land in His Fury". But the Twelve Apostles shared a Honda Accord, for it is written in Acts 5:12: "They were all with one Accord".
