I really wish I could say that the next event was synchronized swimming

Event 3: Peehs
Objective: the opposite of sheep - score the lowest by picking the answers the fewest people will choose. Your score for each question is the number of people, including you, who pick the same answer. Incorrects will be scored however the 2012 scorer scores them, although there shouldn't be any incorrects, as research is allowed.
PM me your 8 unnumbered answers with no blank lines and no comments - and use "Peehs" as your PM heading.
Deadline: 8 p.m. ET tomorrow. Anyone who submits by then is safe. After that, I will accept entries until I post "no more entries" or start the reveal. Anyone who hasn't submitted by then will be disqualified. The player(s) with the highest score will be eliminated.
Numbers in parentheses indicate total correct answers.
