A Blogger Quiz? I'm Soaking in It!

I'm afraid to report that I've been stricken down by the latest blogger quiz. Pooh has passed it along to me, and I'm bound by my sacred oath as a former Cub Scout -- we're talking Wolf Den here people! Wolf Den! -- to do my best to answer these questions for God and my country. But not the gays. Scouts don't want nothing to do with the gays. Just single men who like to hang out with young boys in shorts.

Anyway, as we all know, if you don't fulfill your holy responsibility to answer a chain cyberquiz, dire consequences will be visited upon you. Dire.

So here goes....

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18 and find line 4

"One mayoral official, Roger Starr, following the Rand Corporation..."

Believe it or not, that crackling snap of street knowledge comes from Jeff Chang's Can't Stop, Won't Stop: A History of the Hiphop Generation. Kool Herc would be so proud.

2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can, what do you find?

Buster Bluth on the receiving end of this move.

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?

Well, "The Daily Show" is on right now. So, Jon Stewart saying the words "I believe God hates us."

4. Without looking, guess what time it is.

5. Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?

Five past Hammer Time. But I think that clock is fast.

Jon Stewart saying "Dance Party!"

Taking freedom for a forced march.

18. If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt and politics, what would you do?

Reunite the one group the world needs most -- Wham.

As a broad? No.

24. What would you want God to say to you when you reach the pearly gates?

"Jesus ... party of thirteen? Your table is ready. Jesus, party of thirteen."
