1. Saturn. A fine automobile.
2. Jupiter. (although, the colors don't look right... are you tricking us with Neptune or Uranus?)
3. Mars. A popular candy bar.
4. Luna or Earth's Moon. Crazy religious cult leader.
5. Venus. (the obvious choice, tho I fear being tricked by Titan or some other gas giant satelite...)

saturn
jupiter
mars
it's a moon. not sure it's ours as it probably wouldn't be no 4 if it were, but i have no idea what planet belongs to this orb, so i'll say it's ours as that's the only luna i know.
uranus

Oh, this is funny. I kept wondering when the non-art quizzes would come so I could show off, and look, turns out I 'm equally lacking in confidence in my planetary knowledge.

1. Saturn
2. Jupiter
3. mars
4. earth's moon. that doesn't look right, but I give up.
5. No, wait, that's Venus, so I have to go back and change # 2.

1 / Saturn, where according to Stevie Wonder, people live to be 205.
2 / Jupiter on a clear day.
3 / Mars, you can see Venice.
4 / Our (Earth's) Moon, you can see Alice.
5 / The new map of Oregon? I'll say Neptune.

1 Saturn
2 Jupiter
3 Mars. I think.
4 the moon
5 hmmm. Is this the remaining gasbag Uranus, or am I looking at Venusian cloud cover? Where's the little scale figure Your Moon Is This Big off to the side? OK, the love is the love, but this looks like a cold place, so I'm sticking with my original guess. Uranus.

mrs.5000 said...

Oh, I forgot about the possibility of Neptune. . .

I was just watching the sunshine turn to snow at the opening day Mariners' game, and had a thought that maybe the Moon shot is one of your "cutesy" moves, like a BandW of something else...

boo said...

1. Saturn
2. Jupiter
3. Mars or maybe Venus (I am going to have to look these up after.)
4. The moon that orbits Earth
5. I want to say Neptune because it's blue but I am not sure.

They are all so beautiful.

Rebel said...

FYI - the only class I ever failed was Astronomy 101 in college. That said:

1 Saturn
2 Jupiter
3 Mars?
4 La Luna (The Earth's moon)
5 Venus?

CPM said...

Sorry I am late, darn United.

1. Saturn
2. Jupiter
3. Mars
4. Moon (the one the orbits the earth)
5. Neptune

mhwitt said...

1. Saturn
2. Jupiter, I think.
3. Mars, maybe? Not sure.
4. Earth's moon.
5. This one I really don't know. I'll say Uranus cuz the name is such a common joke for 14 year old boys.

All right, here we go:
1. Saturn
2. Jupiter
3. Mars
4. The Moon. It was supposed to be tricksy, because you'd be thinking of planets and say "Mercury" or something, and then I'd be all like "The Moon!" and you'd be all like "D'oh!" except none of you went for it.
5. Neptune.

Which gives us five contestants taking home an Exclamation Point from MQXXI:

The Calico Cat, who claims not only her third, but her third in a row. It's the first time anybody has taken three straight; she's a force to be reckoned with, people.

CPM takes his or her second, a second in a row; Karmasartre takes his second; and Jessica returns for her second, scoring for the first time since way back in MQII. Remember back then? Those were good times.

Finally, after much confering, it has been decided to accept the answer "Mars or maybe Venus" JUST THIS ONCE. Further indefinite MQ answers will be treated dismissively. But this time it's OK. Which means that Boo, dangerous in the TQ, is finally on the board in the MQ.

Well done, gentle readers! See ya Thursday.
