A message from Drew Curtis:
Tomorrow (Wednesday), we're going to be giving 24 hours of BareFark to everyone! Let us know what you think, and if you like it feel free to sign up for BareFark!
I'm out traveling this week, Bay Area mainly. In San Francisco on Thursday at 7 p.m., I'm a contestant/panelist on Rebecca Watson's Quiz-o-Tron at Piano Fight. Friday evening I'll be joining Stone co-founder Greg Koch in San Jose for a Stone tap takeover (i.e., beer). If you're anywhere near either of those, drop in and say hi! Would love to see you all.
We now return you to your usual Fark NotNewsletter.

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)
Yet another fun time on the quiz, and playing with the pencils on the Group W bench. Parts of the South are starting to see dry land again, after what was the wettest February on record (and still some chance of rain on Thursday, so month ain't over yet). On the Quiz, TwoHead takes the top spot with 922, followed by ThePuceGuardian in second with 895 and rokstar in third with 877. Denjiro makes fourth with 861, and LizardOnAStick sneaks into the top 5 with 856.
The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over Florida Man's new career as a purveyor of online cheat apps. Only 27% of quiztakers knew that "Elusive" was a cheating package Florida Man had created and sold for GTA Online, and since he failed to show up for court, the publishers won a $150,000 judgement against him. Because in a world where the object is to steal cars, participate in major heists, and kill law enforcement officials, we've all gotta play fair. As a wise man once said, "This isn't 'Nam, there are rules!"
The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was over a phone scammer who picked the wrong guy to fark with. 79% of quiztakers recognized the name of William Webster as the man named by Jimmy Carter to serve as FBI Director. He was later named by Ronald Reagan to serve as Head of the CIA, the only person to have held both positions. He also currently serves (at 94 years old!) as the Chair of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, a position he has held since 2004 under three presidents. Yeah, probably not a guy you want to threaten over the phone to get money from. He might know a few people.
The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over rapper Cardi B's Instagram feed, which I'm sure everyone taking the quiz subscribes to. Only.51% of quiztakers knew that she sent out a thank you to the late Tom Petty when she recognized the lyrics to "Walls" on a card accompanying a floral arrangement congratulating her on her Grammy wins. I think next week I'll include a question on Khloe Kardashian's Twitter feed, so I hope you're Keeping Up.
The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over the silly names our friendly but somehow both silly and stuffy allies on the British Isles have for things. 92% of quiztakers knew that "Dead Man's Leg" was a name they've given to a jam-filled pasty which is rolled up and then steamed. The name seemingly comes from the rather unhygienic practice of steaming them in old shirt sleeves or trouser legs, and the fact the jam was usually reddish in color and showed through when you cut into it.
If you missed the quiz last week, you can catch up on it here.
Congratulations to the winners, and we'll be doing it all again this week!
