June 1, 2009 question - Your Vote Counts

Swoon Away, Swoon Away
Swoon away, all
Why is it that I'm taken so strongly by surprise at the beginning of every month? I was only slightly cognizant of May's arrival, and now it's gone.
And so is most of today, so I really should stop whining about the evaporation of time and get on to less important things.

Today's Question
Spelling (in honor of Scripps National Spelling Bee)
What is the correct spelling of the condition treated by Preparation H? Hint: it starts with H. Rule: please put dashes and all caps in your A-N-S-W-E-R to prevent accidental spellcheck cheating.

Friday's Answer
And the people who knew it
We've got a competition brewing, so I'm letting y'all vote for the most entertaining right-ish answer. Here they are:
A) Organized crime; anything requiring doing what is very, very bad; doing what you are not supposed to do; highlighting the negative in other people's emotions; helping people "buy the farm" for keeps
B) La Costra Nostra -- mobs, gangsters, Al Capone, illegal actions by the former
C) It's when a talking mouse and his talking animal friends get you to join his club and become their lifelong best friends. Meanwhile, he and his friends get you to build him a city where you can spend all of your money on DVDs, T-shirts, pens, toys, roller coaster rides . . . wait a minute, that's mouseketeering
D) Making a living by means of rackets; no, not noisy tennis implements, but schemes using nefarious means to induce others to fork over money.

Please vote. Poll booths will remain open until I close them.
