Games Day - group challenge

Today's group challenge will be a game of Scattergories! \:D/ The rules are simple: I will give you a list of categories and a randomly-chosen letter. Your groups will have to come up with words for each category that begin with the chosen letter (example: If the category was car and the letter was C, you could put down Chevrolet). The catch, however, is that if you and your opponent(s) come up with the same answer at any point, you both have to cross it off and neither of you get the points. Alliteration is encouraged (example: Chinese checkers is worth two points). Since the time limit is all day instead of a few minutes, however, there will be one modification: you can come up with as many words for the various categories as you can! :D

The List:
  • Office items
  • Toys/games
  • Historical figures
  • Cartoon characters
  • Desserts
  • Terms associated with the Internet
  • Places in Odyssey (AIO, not the ToO)
  • Bible characters
  • Movies
  • Things associated with Canada

The letter is M.

Since we are allowed to come up with as many words for each category, we'll need everyone to go crazy. ;) Guess away!

In order to make this easier, just quote the following list and then add on any words you can think of. Here's something to get us started.

Office items: markers, monitors
Toys/games: monopoly
Historical figures:
Cartoon characters: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse
Desserts: mousse
Terms associated with the Internet: mail
Places in Odyssey: McAlister Park
Bible characters: Moses, Mary, Martha, Mark, Matthew
Movies: Madagascar, Mama Mia, Mean Girls, Meet the Robinsons, Million Dollar Baby, Mission Impossible, Miss Congeniality, Monsters Inc., Monsters vs. Aliens, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Matrix, The Mummy
Things associated with Canada: mittens,

Are we supposed to post our answers here, or wait till everyone had made their own list, then come together and see what can be submitted (aka things we've put down that no one else had)?
