As always, I have to kick this off by thanking the Farkers who took the time to find the stories and then write the questions that make up this week's quizzes. So a hearty thank you to your quizmasters this week: meow said the dog, Sim Tree, phlegmmo, ivan, and Sinto. Nice to see you all back again.

Dammit, I meant to add MaxxLarge to the list above but when I rewrote from two sentences to one, he got inadvertently left off. Thank you, MaxxLarge, and welcome back, too!

Hard: 9 out of 11 correct, total points = 801 (I took 99 seconds, but a win ain't one.)
Easy: 10 out of 10 correct, total points = 943 (57 seconds)

Thanks, quizmasters, because despite my tax season-induced productivity and clearly insufficient alcohol consumption, it's still the highlight of my week too. (And mad props to Cybernetic for killing it today!)
 
2014-03-07 02:38:31 PM
Shiat, only got 5.  I blame jury duty.
 
2014-03-07 02:39:04 PM
10/11, guessed correctly on a couple of them but missed the 'happy ending' one.
 
2014-03-07 02:47:21 PM
8 out of 11 correct, total points = 649

And oddly enough, I only guessed on 1 that I got right.
And, my score would have been higher if f'n IE would respond to my answer without having to click 3 times.

I'm a bad farker. I promise to read the articles next week and pass the quiz. Or, I'll just post a bunch of memes and gifs, fail the quiz again, and biatch about the comedic genius I freely provide mods, which inexplicably ends up in the trash bin in lieu of another food thread.

The only curse worse than not being able to remember a damn thing you did while drunk is the curse of recalling every single bloody thing in horrible, full-colour detail.
 
2014-03-07 03:01:56 PM
I got 8 of 11 but I'd rather have seven of nine.
 
2014-03-07 03:02:52 PM
I can barely remember my name this morning.
 
2014-03-07 03:03:33 PM
3 right on the quiz
5 right on the Potato quiz :(

I need to spend more time on the computer
 
2014-03-07 03:05:03 PM
I didn't visit Fark in the last week but I got 3 right. Do I get a prize?

All too often. Waiting for Peter Sagal and/or Karl Cassell to out themselves as Farkers.

Nice job, Cybernetic!
 
2014-03-07 04:39:36 PM
Well that's why I'm not doing well on the quizzes. I've been sober-ish while reading Fark and sober while taking the quizzes. Next week I'll remedy that.

lilbjorn: Isn't "Wait! Wait! Don't Tell Me" the Fark News Quiz?


They were doing theirs before we were doing ours, but as I understand it, they do their taping on Thursday for the show on Saturday, and we write up ours throughout the week and I assemble it Thursday night and Friday morning for launch on Friday afternoon. Drew has met Peter Sagal a few times, I believe.

When I had more time to write Quiz questions, I also had time to listen to WWDTM. I should've kept records, but I believe I racked up two or three hits -- a news story referenced on WWDTM that I had submitted to the Quiz. Sort of like a greenlight, but much more statistically probable

dang, so promising as I surged out of the gates in a blaze of triumph, only to stumble and falter the second half with a moral victory last question correct to otherwise brighten a downcast farker
