Rex Parker said...

awesome, I know NONE of these (OK, I know one)

1. Hmmm, looks like a mask for the horse of a Klansman, so I'm going to say Alabama.
2. California
3. New Britain? British Britainford Britstate? Let's just say Mississippi.
4. Hawaii??
5. That's not a flag, that's a pennant. That state should be ashamed of itself. I guess: Oregon.

...which means there are three (3) Exclamation Points going out for the 39th running of the L&TM5K Monday Quiz. Boo claims her third EP, Calico Cat grabs her fifth, and DrSchnell goes two in a row to nail down his 14th MQ win.

There have now been 28 Quizzes under the bridge since MQ11, which was on Architecture. Mrs.5000 was one of three winners of that one, which put her out front on the all-time Monday Quiz list for good -- until tonight. By taking his 14th E.P., DrSchnell has finally caught up to Mrs.5000. Will he be able to score the go-ahead win in next week's Monday Quiz? Or, will the City of Roses' reigning Queen of General Knowledge put the hurt on him? And what of Cartophiliac, and the element of Chance, both lurking but two wins behind? The excitement never lets up at the Life & Times of Michael5000!

@Karin: Did you have flaggy dreams?

@Calico: I DID know that. And studiously avoided them, for obvious reasons.

@d: It's ok. This is pretty much a dorks-only bar.

@Elizabeth: I'm intrigued by your choices.

@Nichim: Very droll.

@Dug: Hawaii bit your ass. Strangely enough, Hawaii is an easy one if you are into quilting. Just thought I'd mention that.

@Rex: Eh, you were still on New Zealand time. At least you named actual states, more or less.

@Chance: I feel cheated. I only got two utterly wrong answers. Plus, your joke was way too easy this week. Which is not to say I didn't laugh when I read it. 'Cause I did.

Curses! I need a transfusion of random knowledge, preferably with megadoses of historoids and geographicates.
