HOST: A. You’re going to go for A, a tattoo known as the cutie mark? Oh, you’re right, sir . . . well let’s see if you can be perfect. The ponies’ most powerful enemy is which of these?

HOST: Another victory for you, sir. You’ve done so much. Been elected twice, governor of Arkansas, the youngest governor ever. How does this stack up?
