LAUGHTER OL I accidentally got one right on the easy quiz (I usually take these to get the 0 of 0). It was a question not previously seen by me. I now must go and read the story related to this because I thought, "There is not the way this could be correct." There are the funniest of stories.

Well you beat me but I got it done quicker, just 72 seconds.
That's 6.5 seconds on each question. I don't even read a lot of them, I just look at the answers and see what rings a bell as being seen on Fark this week.

Walker: I don't even read a lot of them, I just look at the answers and see what rings a bell as being seen on Fark this week.


Yeah, me too sometimes but you have to be careful of the "Which of these was NOT on Fark this week" questions they throw in from time to time.
