And now the question...

Is this selection of two-word names:

A) The complete selection of May, 2004 Epsom Downs horseracing winners;

B) The roster of shades for the soon-to-be-release "Attitude d'Felt" poker-themed nail-polish line;

C) A collection of "house drink" names from London's Soho district;

D) The listing of non-generic ring-game tables available at Tony G Poker.

I can't really rule out A or C (I made B up), but the answer for sure is D. Yes, at Tony G Poker, you can sit down for a lively game at "Current Scratch," which happens to be a $0.50/1.00 NL Hold'Em table with a $150 max buy-in.

I've had fun with table-name themes on previous occasions, but I have to admit this collection is special, even as we can all admit that it's getting harder to come up with anything new. In this case, I'm guessing two guys got stoned, wrote down a whole bunch of words on scraps of paper, then drew them out two at a time to produce the selection you see above.

Which is kind of a shame, you see. I was so looking forward to some "Strong Pulpy" nail polish.
