Got your thinking caps on?

This quiz will run until 5 PM on Wednesday. That evening, the winner will be announced.

This is a ten question quiz based upon moi. Since it is only ten questions there will be two tiebreaker questions in the event that two or more people get the same high score. You will need to post your answers to the tiebreaker questions in a comment to this post.

Any questions? Too bad. I'm not taking any questions.

Is this what it is like to be a teacher? Cool.

Shut up. Sit down. You're going on detention. Miss Sanders, see me after class for a special oral exam.

OK, as mentioned yesterday, this is the prize:

A genuine tacky black velvet painting of Elvis. The ultimate in kitsch. How can you go wrong?
It will be packaged lovingly by my local UPS store and shipped to your home where no doubt it will occupy a place of honor in your humble abode.

You can take the quiz here, my little chickadees. And you can only take it ONCE. If you violate that rule then legally I get to sodomize you with various items found in my junk drawer.

OK, here are the two tiebreaker questions:

#1 How many jobs have I had since 1990?

#2 How many miles are on my vehicle (I bought it new in August of 2004)?

Won't this be fun?

Note: Sorry Ellie Mae (Christine), Eric, and Sharra. You are not eligible. Too many of the questions might be slam dunks for you given the fact that we work together. You can still take the quiz, but you can't win the painting. But if you get the high score, I'll take you out to lunch, how's that?

Family members are also not eligible.

Let the games begin. Release the hounds!

70% puts me in the lead for a little while, since Mrs. Fab is disqualified because she married you.

My answers to the tie-breakers are 1)I have no idea and 2) I have no idea. Since those are absolutely correct answers, I'm still in the lead.

Yeah, I agree with blogarita....Mrs Fab should be disqualified. No offense Mrs. Fab.

Anyway, I took it...but I suck at quizzes any damn way.

AHHHH! A quiz? On a Monday??? I'm not ready yet!!! I haven't studied!!! A wild lemur ate my homework!!!

Blogger Stacy The Peanut Queen said...

Eh, I took it...but I sucked too. I should've went with my gut...because two of the answers I would've gotten right had I went with my first choice.

Damn!!! No Elvis for me!

Blogger Ginnie said...

I took it, too! At least I admit it (ha, at 30%). BUT DOES IT COUNT THAT I ACTUALLY MET YOU! Surely that has to count for something!!!

Blogger keeps eating my comments gggrrr.
I have a signed doctor's excuse saying I am not allowed to take quizes but damn I want that Elvis. I can just see it hanging above my bed.
I need to lie down and think this over. I will be back later to take it. :)

Blogarita--Believe me, she doesn't want it in the house, anyway! I can't figure out how she didn't get 100%

MD--At least you gave it the old college try!

Stacy--Yep, always go with the gut! Oh well...

Ginnie--I hope at least you got the question right about where I work, since that is where we met!

Sherry--That's the spirit! LOL

Beady--Still under the weather, hon? :(

Serra--Never be ashamed of that :)

Did it! Only 40%... What the f... are those questions? Studied till 4 am and have a 40%!!!!!! But I guess my drawing of you will make me win anyway... I'm such a sucker... NOOOOOOOO I'M NOT! And Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn about Elvis.... He's not from my time. Do you have John Lennon with a little tear... On Psychedelic background... Nude wiht Yoko? THAT would be a hoooot!NO? I will draw one myself so...Heh heh...:)

I'm glad you're letting it run until wednesday. I'm beat. I^ll be back though :-)

Yikes! I tanked!

Blogger Blogarita said...

Oh, thank dog! I thought I was going to be stuck with that thing. ;)

BTW, which one did Mrs. Fab miss?

4:21 PM  
Anonymous Mrs. Fab said...

Believe me I greatly desire the disqualification. There is no way I want that thing to remain in our house. It's been in a closet in the den for years and I'm dying to get rid of it.

I just wanted to see what was on the quiz and the only way to do that was to take it. Can't tell you which one I missed though, it might give away the correct answer...

Maybe he'll do another quiz and I can get him to get rid of some more junk. He has this unusual attachment to socks with holes in them. He won't let me throw them out. Of course they don't sound like very good prizes...

5:14 PM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

MP--Wow, so much for Canadians being smarter :)

Beady--I'm sorry to hear that :(

Anne--Nope, this quiz was blissfully lemur-free!

CS--LOL, OK, yes it is best to take it when you are well rested!

Blogarita--Joke is on you, my friend, neither Mrs. Fab nor Sharra is eligible, so you are still in the lead :)

Dixie--I am VERY surprised!

Baby, I would think people would be clamoring for my holey old clothes! Or perhaps not!

6:01 PM  
Blogger Plunky said...

I would do it except I already have an Elvis painting! Aww shucks! I so don't want to deprive anyone else of SUCH a treasure.

The WEINIER NATIONALS!!!! I love it!

I always wanted to enter my Barney in a race down at the beach, but it never happened.....

I'll go take the quiz now!

6:21 PM  
Blogger Big Pissy said...

*hanging my head in shame*

I only scored a 50! :(

I second guessed myself at least 2 xs!


oh well, Velvet Elvis doesn't go with French Country anyway.....

I was never good at test taking in school. I'm a failure....

What's with the sock fixation? Socks are Satan's footwear, especially when combined with sandals.

OMG I sooo I got NOTHING right!! *sigh* I suck......sniff sniff

9:12 PM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Deb--You already have one? I KNEW you were a woman of class and distinction LOL

Pissy--I was waiting for someone to mention the weiner dogs! :)

Some Girl--I am sure you have many other fine qualities!

Anne--I could not agree more, socks with sandals are the work of the devil!

Chelle--Yikes! Really? LOL

I believed you were in an honest to God bar brawl :) Iknow, I know. You're a lover not a fighter, and I should have known better.
*kicks self*
Only 60%, so I miss out on Velvet Elvis!!!
*tear running down cheek..just like Elvis*

Hey - who said you could post pictures of my puppy?????

Anonymous Amanda said...

Woo Hoo 70%! You did not specifically disqulaify me by name. Just think, you'll save a buttload on shipping and handling.
Tiebreaker answers:
1)Do you mean how many companies you worked for, or actual jobs? My best guess is three and six respectively.
Okay, I know I should be disqualified, so this is all in fun. I'll bow out of the competition gracefully. Plus I'm upset I didn't get a perfect score anyway. I always got good grades without studying. Damn. Must be getting rusty so many years out of college.

50% - you look good for 40- whatever you are. I guessed on every one!

DAMN IT!!! I already had a place picked out on my wall and everything!
OH well, I guess your right. It would be a bit easier for the three of us.
OH, and since I didn't get a chance to read it earlier, thanks for the post that was specifically for ME and yes, thanks for acknowleging the once a year moment where I do get a bit of insight. Even if your balance isn't what it used to be....

Good Day, My Compadres:

I am the Quest Master. I bear ill tidings: the Northern Chalice of Blog Wisdom has been lost. You have been handpicked to join the quest to recover the Northern Chalice.

We will search far and wide. We will leave no corner of the blogosphere unturned. And we will be victorious in our dual quest for blog traffic and the return of the great Northern Chalice.

The names of your Blog Titles have been scrambled into anagrams. Once a day you will receive an email from me, The Quest Master, informing you that a clue, in the form of a letter of the alphabet, has been found.

The clue, in the form of a letter, will be placed in a current day comment in one of your blogs as listed under chosen blogs below. To find the clue, you will need to visit every blog in the list and search the comments for a post from me, The Quest Master. Again, I emphasize, the comment will be placed on the most current post of the blog at the time so there will be no need in searching through dozens of posts and comments. You may however, need to visit every blog on the list if you are unlucky enough to find the clue right away.

Find the clue and record the letter somewhere safe. The Witch of the Lesser Southern Isles will be attempting to steal your clues, so guard them carefully.

You will be notified by email when the next clue has been placed. As soon as possible after this email notification, search for the next clue.

As you collect letters, you will attempt to unscramble them. The letters will ultimately reveal the name of one of the participating blogs below.

Successfully unscramble the name of the blog, and you will recover the Northern Chalice of Blog Wisdom and receive all appropriate honors and riches.

1. the first compadre to successfully unscramble the blog name to find the North Chalice of Wisdom will win 250 Blog Explosion Credits AND A $50 Gift Package from Mystickal Incense and More.

2. Five 2nd Place prizes of 50 Blog Explosion Credits will be randomly awarded to those who participate on a daily basis.

3. Each compadre may only make ONE guess per day.

4. All guesses must be made by email to me, the Quest Master, at

5. Anyone who can figure out who I, the Quest Master, am will receive an additional prize.

6. The Quest will begin with the revelation of the first clue at 12:00 Noon Eastern Daylight Time, and will end when the first correct guess has been made and submitted to me, the Quest Master.

7. If you wish not to participate, you have until Noon on Wednesday, Eastern Daylight time to request to be removed from this quest.

Hey not bad! I scored 60 and I've only known you (your blog) for a very short time! I'm quite proud of myself.

So where did Mrs. fab (who's leading) miss out?

I'm devastated!
No alcool, no pills, no grass... I got 40... It's the first time in my entire life I get a 40%... I will die in disgrace and terrible agony!

This was my karma! Now, I will have to live the rest of my life knowing that I could have won a velvet painting of Elvis THE KING... with a tear... Bou, hou, hou.... Do you know I have my master degree in Art History? Can you imagine me living WITHOUT that painting?

1:48 AM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Clo--You have a masrer's degree and you only got a 40%? Are you sure that your college was accredited?

4:57 AM  
Blogger Clo said...

I got my master degree in Art History at the Laval University my dear! And the director for my these was the actual Director of the "Musée national des Beaux-Arts du Québec", Mr. John R. Porter!

For that quiz, I have to admit I didn't study, and that whenever you should tell me the name of your car, I will always forget that one!

But I have one thing to confess, I was not really motivated, don't know why...
