Endor's #1 Citizen

Tonight playing CatchPhrase, my buddy Johnny was struggling to give clues for the idiom "Sticky Wicket".  After the buzzer sounded and he told us the word, Tommy yelled, "Why didn't you just say 'the best Ewok glued to you?!'" 

Coincidentally, the phrase "sticky wicket" refers to a difficult problem-- like a sticky situation-- and is based on cricket terminology.  Which reminds me, I have to post about baseball slang.
