I discuss the Realistic Foreground Simulations performed by the WOMBAT
Our foreground predictions derive from known catalogs of extragalactic sources
improved maps of Galactic emission. We have made predictions of foreground
contamination at relevant microwave frequences available on the web along with
estimates of the uncertainty in these predictions. The WOMBAT Challenge
involve a realization of these uncertainties and include CMB anisotropies,
instrument noise. I conclude by conducting a survey of the audience on a few
guaranteed to stir up controversy.
