Thanks to the team that put together this week's quiz:  meow said the dogphlegmmo, and  ivan(who made sure all the loose ends were tied up with extra questions). Your work is always appreciated.

My crisp what?

Every week, I'm convinced two or three of these questions never appeared on Fark. I must be missing 'em on weekends or something.

Ah well. I suppose I will just have to buy a gym membership and a 26-minute timer to make myself feel better.
 
2013-01-25 04:45:07 PM  
809! #2, although that won't last long.
 
2013-01-25 04:47:19 PM  
Well, that was terrible. I must be working too hard.
 
2013-01-25 04:52:21 PM  
I've been wasting far too much time on tfd, i probably wouldn't know any of them

ABACADABA didn't work for me.  Probably because there's no 'D'.

You'd need a couple Rs, as well

Helluva formatting job there.....3rd place at the moment. (soon to be moving down the scale, evidently).
 
2013-01-25 07:37:24 PM  
11/11 but only 888 points, because I didn't get them fast enough.

Still, the best I've ever done.
 
2013-01-25 07:40:08 PM  
btw Unfreakable, gotten any rain lately?
 
2013-01-25 07:51:30 PM  
hopefully this was opposite week where we were trying to get them all incorrect, yes?

because that is damn near what I did.
