I’d like to introduce you to Boris Yakinov, Mitchieville’s newest tax collector for the Ministry of Taxation and Libraries. Forgot to fill out your T4 this year, the deadline to file is running out. Literally. No wink wink, you know EXACTLY what I mean. At least Boris sure as heck does.
Andy, from that Redneck Ramblings place down the road, and Mr Fnortner both correctly identified last week’s MENSA Teaser questions, which makes them, wait for it….Mitchieville’s Smarty Panted Winner(s) of the week. Prizes this week include, lunch with Boris at The Tofu Grill, tickets to CATS, and a blue privilege token courtesy of the Fenris Badwulf School of Telemarketing. Overwhelming, I know. A word to the wise, gentlemen, when booking a table at The Tofu Grill, make sure not to sit next to any window. You’ll thank The Mayor later, I’m sure.
Get your life preserver out, take a shot of scotch and batton down the hatches, for we are ready to play MENSA Teaser.
1) Five US states end in an S. First, name those states. Then take the first letter of each one, add the last two letters of the capital of Idaho, and rearrange those seven letters to make a common word that you hope you didn’t make.
2) What two words, formed from different arrangements of the same seven letters, can be used to complete the sentence below?
The successful antiques dealer could be see ____________ from stall to stall at the show, ______________business cards with potential suppliers.
Questions so easy that even Boris can solve them. Solve them with his machete of truth, that is.
MENSA Teaser is open to all residents of Mitchieville, even those losers from NW Mitchieville (snort).
Now, after you answer both questions correctly, The Mayor wants you to go out and have a wonderful day. That’s pretty close to an order.
