Let's bring up our next two fearless contestants. We have Andy Kravis and Sara Manaugh.
EISENBERG: Andy, you're a bit of a geek. You parody pop songs with law school related lingo. What's up with that?
ANDY KRAVIS: That's right. I'm in the Columbia Law Review, which sounds just like the Columbia Law Review, the journal, except way better and a lot more fun. We write parody words to popular songs, and they have a law theme. And nobody finds them funny except for law students.

So what I'm saying is, the whole premise is a bit off.
