So how did you score? Grade yourself on the following scale:
  • If you got 10 correct - Go away now! You are one of those people who really annoy me.
  • If you got 8-9 correct - You are a friggen' genius and are clearly having your IQ lowered by reading this blog. Go read Clark Bartram's Blog... now there's a smart feller.
  • If you got 5-7 correct - Stand up, jump up and down, spin around three times, and shout the words "Bowling Pin" at the top of your lungs.
  • If you got 3-5 correct - Treat yourself to a bowl of Campbell's Chunky Soup. It's good and it's good for you!
  • If you got 1-2 correct - You probably are at the IQ level at which I am aiming this blog. My deepest condolences!
  • If you got none right- You should be running for elected office. You are a perfect candidate for a government job. You may also find good work on a computer for an HMO, telling doctors which procedures they can and cannot do.
