Hello to all! I hope all is well in Mathieland, the happiest place on Earth (provided, of course, that you're either a masochist or suffering from a caffeine overdose). There are a couple of things I want to let you know. First of all, I had intended to have the Star Wars Squiz due on May 31, along with Squiz #1. However, that announcement did not get put in, due to an oversight on my part. Therefore, the submissions to the Star Wars Squiz will be due on Monday, June 14 at 6:30 p.m. (Hopefully, you'll at least try it now — darn procrastinators). Secondly, it was my original intention to not have any more professional wrestling questions after Squiz #1. I figured I'd let you either worship or condemn me once, depending on your personal tastes, and then leave it at that. However, with last Sunday's tragic passing of Owen Hart, I have decided to add one category based on his wrestling career, as a hopefully not-so-pathetic attempt at a tribute to him. To those of you who hate wrestling, I sincerely apologize. Please don't let this keep you from doing the rest of the Squiz. And, I promise this will be the last time I throw any pro wrestling questions in the Squiz (for this term, anyway). Anyways, here are the solutions to Squiz #1: Music Lyrics: 1) "Charlie Brown" by The Coasters; 2) "(I'm a) Road Runner" by Jr. Walker and the All-Stars; 3) "Superman's Song" by Crash Test Dummies; 4) "Mickey" by Toni Basil; the theme was cartoon characters; Comics: 1) a fink; 2) Catbert; 3) Spike; 4) Helga; 5) Attila; Stanley: 1) win 3 consecutive Stanley Cups (except that it didn't happen — suckers); 2) Toronto Maple Leafs (their last Cup was 1967); 3) Ron Hextall (1987 as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers vs. Edmonton); 4) Tony Esposito and Danny Grant; 5) Minnesota North Stars (1991); Wrestling Music: 1) "Rowdy" Roddy Piper; 2) "Diamond" Dallas Page; 3) "2001: A Space Odyssey"; 4) Insane Clown Posse; 5) Bret "Hitman" Hart.
We had 2 (yes, two) submissions for Squiz #1, so my deepest thanks goes out to the following people: the tag team of Erin, Lisa, and Sko scored 6 points; and our winners this week, with a score of 16 points, the tag team of Erin and Brady! Congratulations! You can pick up your prize in the MathSoc office during office hours.
So, without further ado, it's time to play the Squiz!
Well, that's that. Good luck to all of you. Submissions to both the Star Wars Squiz (Squiz #2) and this Squiz will be due on Monday, June 14th by 6:30 p.m. You can submit your solutions in one of 2 ways: you can deposit them into the BLACK BOX outside of the Comfy Lounge, or you can e-mail them to me at email@example.com. Remeber that we do give prizes for the person or team that scores the highest, and you can't win if you don't submit! Hey, what have you got to lose? Until next time, take care!
