We're back with another edition of the Weekly Weird News Quiz, where we find out if you've got a tablet to Fark from while you're spending so much time relaxing on that new mattress, or only a computer.

Okay, what is the deal with the whole "President's Day Mattress Sale" thing? It's been going on for as long as I remember. There's always a sale at every freaking mattress store on President's Day. What kind of industry collusion is going on with Big Mattress? Do they have some kind of shadowy secret cabal that meets in dark underground lairs where they all wear Spider-Man pajamas and have a secret handshake and do Gregorian chants except with Latin lyrics about a good night's rest and not eating cookies and the password to get in is "sleepy swordfish"? That doesn't even make any sense as swordfish don't sleep!!! (This is true. I looked it up).

Okay, so go take the quiz, then come back and tell us your conspiracy theory on why mattress stores always have a sale on President's Day, whether you bought one, and if so, do you like it?

If  you missed the link to the Easy Quiz, here it is.

Big Mattress was the name of the morning show when I moved to Boston, decades ago when radio stations were local instead of I Heart Clones.

I'm waiting for my authentic George Washington era mattress sale.  It isn't a President's day sale without George Washington.

I got a mattress from Ikea a few weeks ago. It's too hard. I can exchange it, but I need to figure out the logistics of doing that. The original mattress was delivered with other things.

I spent about 30 minutes there jumping from mattress to mattress. Now I've got to go back and do it again. I should have just gone to a mattress store and waited for a sale.

What's funny is that we did just buy a new mattress about a week ago, yes, during a Presidents Day sale. It's huge and firm and I sleep like a goddamned baby on it, thank you very much..

After years of back pain I finally went all-in on a quality mattress last year.  What I had was 17 years old.  The first 7-10 days were excruciating as my body adjusted.

Now?

It's almost impossible to get out of bed in the morning.  It's like I'm floating in blissful nothingness.

OK.

Why do you date the quizzes the way you do? You posted it to the site on the 28th but on the 'quiz list' you have it dated as the 23rd & in the headline (see below) you say that it comprises the 18th - 24th. Weird to say the least.

It's just weird the way the system numbers stuff. That's why I put the date range in the headline. to try to make it clear where the questions come from.

The reason I asked is that some people get confused about the date being back further than when it's posted. No biggie I suppose.

It's week 2 for our new mattress, thank-you-very-much.  We got ours when one of the 5 billion local mattress stores was going out of business.. (Even at 50% off, I'm sure they made a tidy profit.)
