This year's Farketplace is reopening this Friday for your Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday shopping needs! In case you've missed it so far, Farketplace is a thread where Farkers are invited to share information about their online shops and small businesses. There's a much better explanation in the Farketplace thread, so go check it out, and see all the awesome stuff your fellow Farkers are selling. And if you happen to make and sell, for example, handmade ear massagers, or you have a business writing custom ballads for pet salamanders, go tell everyone in the Farketplace thread about how to give you money in exchange for goods and services. Be sure to read the posts from Moderator at the top of the page, and don't go threadjacking in there or you will be eaten by a Drue.

Fark Weird News Quiz (brought to you by ox45tallboy)
Another fun time on last week's Quiz, although we still haven't determined who exactly buys a $10,000 Gucci XBox. On the Quiz itself, Blackstone makes his way into the 1000 club with a score of 1011, followed by TheMothership in second with 984 and Denjiro in third with 963. No Catchy Nickname makes fourth with 940, and bud jones makes it into the top five with 934.
The hardest question on last week's Hard Quiz was about the choice of vehicle for a 54-year-old Richmond, IN man who led police on a slow pursuit for over an hour, Only 39% of quiztakers knew he had stolen a street sweeper from a nearby construction site to drive through town and peoples' yards before crashing it into the river. No word on street cleanliness post-chase.
The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was about the former owner of a pair of diamond bracelets that had recently sold at auction for $8.4 million. 87% of quiztakers knew that the last Queen of France before the French Revolution was Marie Antionette. Anne Boleyn was the second wife of England's Henry VIII I Am I Am and also lost her head at the beginning of the English Reformation, and Mary Tudor was Henry VIII's daughter who tried (unsuccessfully) to reverse the English Reformation and put more power back into the hands of the monarchy.
The hardest question on last week's Easy Quiz was about this year's Thanksgiving Doughnuts collection. Only 37% of quiztakers knew that you could Pumpkin Pie Doughnuts, Cranberry Orange Doughnuts, Dutch Apple Pie Doughnuts, and Gobbler Doughnuts at Krispy Kreme. Oddly enough, few picked up on the fact that Krispy Kreme uses the "Doughnut" spelling, while the other choice, Dunkin'; spells their product "Donut."
The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was also about empty calories - only this time, Krispy Kreme was the wrong choice. 86% of quiztakers knew that Cinnabon was now selling pints of their signature frosting at certain stores and through their app. Because sometimes, just adding more pure sugar to your dish isn't enough - you also need some saturated fat. Saturated with what? In this case, more sugar.
If you missed out on last week's Quiz, now's a great to time to catch up on the Fark Weird News Quiz now that you know some of the answers. Congratulations once again to this week's winners, and we'll do it all again this week.
