It’s Not Easy Being Green

A few weeks ago, my wife and I were laying in bed unable to sleep (of course, this is before we brought home Baby A from the hospital), and we challenged ourselves to name every movie that we could think of that was about a dog.

We got stumped somewhere between Benji the Hunted and Balto. When we looked it up later, we couldn’t believe how many of those Buddy puppy movies there were. (Space Buddies, Super Buddies, Snow Buddies…) 

Anyway, it was a fun game – for a week.

So in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to invite you all to play a similar game:

Come up with as many green fictional characters as you can. Challenge your friends. BUT – you can only post your answers for the ones you come up with in the first 30 seconds! I’ll start; I only came up with three:

Kermit, Shrek, the Grinch.
