Apparently games based upon supreme court justices are not nearly as popular as games based upon movie quotes. Who knew?

Did you come up with this quiz on your own? I can't match a single one.

The lady I stayed with in TN made it up for her book club and I took it my first night there. I only got a couple of them right.

I tried to get Ern to take the quiz last night but we got drunk at trivia night instead.
