Question #42: Old threads on SSG are like wine because...?
a) they get better with age,
b) they are reserved for those only over age 18,
c) should have a cork stuck in them, or
d) they sound like what Luke Skywalker would do when prevented from going to Tosche Station.

Since 2001, I can add these to my list:

Jerry (he's the guy from the Zoo Story play I couldn't remember)
The Alchemist (from the book by the same name by Paulo Coelho)
Dr. Gregory House
Skippy (from Family Ties... "We tried, but it came out 'Skippy, you're a doctor'" )
