I discuss the Realistic Foreground Simulations performed by the WOMBAT collaboration. Our foreground predictions derive from known catalogs of extragalactic sources and 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 simulations involve a realization of these uncertainties and include CMB anisotropies, foregrounds, and instrument noise. I conclude by conducting a survey of the audience on a few issues guaranteed to stir up controversy., astro-ph/9812237, astro-ph/0005365,
