My Story, Yours Too.

Tuesday, May 25, 2010


Hush, boys and girls! It's time for another Choco-Quiz. Are you ready? Too bad. Take out your #2's. I will have no cheating. Betty, did you hear that? (Copyboy, hide your paper this time). Cheeseboy, I hope the tutoring has paid off and you'll give this one a try, dear.

Take as long as you need (state Special Ed laws and all). Feel free to send the answers to my email directly through my profile page (especially you, Blase. I know you have my address. Wink, Wink.) or list them in the comments section. No, you just had a potty break, Seductress and Marlene. Don't think I don't see you eyeing Jimmy and Daniel on the playground. Sarah dear, win this one for the girls. Okay? You were close last time, but PowderedToastMan and TSHendrik took the win. They both got a big kiss from Obama. [Rumour has it the President tried to get away with more than a platonic kiss.] Of course, there will be another chocolately prize this time. Good luck!

  1. Oh good, I get a chance this time!
    9)d (though I would imagine b may be true for some one(s))

    I seem to be too tired for snarky comments this time around... I'll try harder next time!

  2. I suck at tests and quizzes, even when they're about one of the tastiest treats around. I just wanted to swing by and show you some love. Hugs and Kisses (chocolate kind of course) Ha ha :)

  3. But I just sharted!!!

    I'm gonna give this one a stab this time, knowing full well that I'm gonna end up with another "F" for, well, you know what! I may as well start a collection. :)

    1. a (I think? No? Maybe?)
    2. True (how boring)
    3. b (but I like Roseanne Barr as an answer!)
    4. a (a the rest of these)
    5. a? Isn't that related to sex???
    6. d (if it's in Canada, then I've never seen it)
    7. b (22 is a nice round number)
    8. c (the Flintstones, duhhh. What a no-brainer)
    9. c (I'll be serious for once, even if I'm wrong again)
    10. c (you look like a snickers kind of girl)

  4. 1. A
    2. False
    3. C
    4. C
    5. A
    6. C
    7. D
    8. D
    9. D
    10. C

    I did not use Google in my answers, but was tempted.

  5. What DOESN'T cause twisted fantasies about Justin Bieber and his Teddy Bear?

    Certainly nothing that I've ever encountered...

  6. I was pondering my answers when Roseanne Barr's fat arse distracted me. Is it firm or wobbly? I don't mind fat if it's also firm. And Milky Way is called Milky Way in England.

  7. I don't have a freakin' clue! I'm not a chocolate lover... stop gasping... please. So, can I just copy all the correct answers from above? Not the wrong answers! I'd google the questions, but it's 2:30 in the freakin morning and I just don't have the ganas to goggle... or spell correctly. Watch out though... I'm catching up on my Rawkin Robin Reading... get the unfolded underwear off the couch... grin

  8. Oh I so suck at this. I am not a huge chocolate fan since I am lactose intolerant.

  9. I've been studying lots of candy bar wrappers in anticipation of this quiz, Robyn! My answers are:
    1. B
    2. True
    3. B
    4. C
    5. D
    6. D
    7. B
    8. A
    9. D
    10. D

  10. I'm going to take a crack at it...


    I will spend the rest of the day cruising through the milky way, daydreaming of Justin Beiber amd Roseanne Barr fighting over cocoa liquor made my the Flintstones, and craving a snickers sandwiched between 2 Reese Cups.... going to be a sweet day!

  11. Your class is the bestest! Thats why I keep failing the tests, I never want to leave you...

    5.D (teacher,,,Marlene said sex!!! Marlene said sex!!)
    8.A (I know a guy, who knew a guy, who is cousins with a guy that slept with the Aunt of a guy who was there)
    9.D. (everything causes fantasies of Justin Beiber,, I froth over him...giggle)

    Not to be a tattle tale, but..Blase keeps touching my knee and it is making me feel all funny..What does it mean?

  12. This quiz looks a lot harder than last time. I will have to think about those today and email you later.

    Psst T.S., what did you get for number 3?

  13. I haven’t cheated on a test since being hauled to the principal’s office in Grade 4 when caught exchanging answers on a math test with my best friend. Traumatizing? Yes. Rather than cheating on this one (and I’d have to) I’ll have some chocolate in your honour. I’m in awe of your chocolate expertise.

  14. PowderedToastMan, quiet down. Don't forget, I have your parent-teacher conference this afternoon. First question: what's up with your son's name? PS I brave your tests, so no excuses.

    Seductress, it will all be explained to you when she watch the film with butterflies and flowers in 5th grade. As for Blase, I'll have a talk with him when he drops by my place with the answers, later. Much later. ;0}

    Babygirl, I love the paragraph you wrote at the bottom of your test.

    Tgo, feel free to bring me the candy after studying the wrappers. It's required, if you're working on becoming teacher's pet.

    So, so sorry to hear that, Jerry. But more for me.

    Glad you made it to class today, Spuds. I will need to talk with your parents about your coming to class without undies. We do have some standards here.

    GB, it's very cottage cheesey wobbly and nothing to go bananas over. Sorry.

    Good point, Jeremy. Very true, especially in relation to this class.

    Cheeseboy, you took the test without giggling or googling! Good job, dear boy.

    Marlene, see, if you give it a try, it could pay off. Now stop the sharting.

    Ally, thanks for dropping by to say hello. You were always one of my favorites.

    Rachel, you speedy smart girl! I did miss you last time we had an exam. Glad to see you back, and I hope the home schooling is still going well.

    Happy Reese's and recess, all! This test will continue for another day or so.
