As far as MENSA Teaser participation goes, last Friday’s game set the gold standard. We had new players, old players, borrowed players and blue players. Thems a lot of players. We also had our share of winners’ and our share of losers’. Among those that correctly identified all three questions correctly include: MPalef, Polska, Johns 1959, and Mr Fnortner.
Among the losers include everyone else.
Congratulations to our four winners. I did promise a prize for last week’s MENSA winners, and The Mayor fully intends to come through on his promise. How does a deep dish pepperoni and extra cheese pizza sound? Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? And how about splitting that pizza with a special friend? Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? Well, this is your lucky day.
All four of last week’s MENSA winners have won a deep dish pepperoni and extra cheese pizza courtesy of Big John’s Pizza Calhoun & Bait Shop. John even told The Mayor that after the pizza, he has another *special* gift or two waiting our lucky winners.
Lucky? Yes. Yes you are.
If you are wondering what today’s MENSA questions look like, well, they look a little something like this:
1) Which vowel comes midway between J and T?
2) Pear is to apple as potato is to?
If you’re wondering how The Mayor did on these questions, I got 2/3. For those of you not into fractions, that’s about 90% or so.
Good luck to all the Mensaheads who participate in this week’s game. These are tricky little questions, but if I know you like I think I know you, I’m sure you will come through in flying colours.
MENSA Teaser is open to everyone with a pulse. Good luck to all. And to all a good night.
