The Unused Questions

Due to a few of our groups unavailability, who’d more pressing appointments, Thursday nights bi-weekly online quiz was cancelled. Consequently, the questions prepared for this clambake remained unused; instead gathering metaphorical dust on my laptop hard drive.

Of course, I could’ve saved these intentionally absurd inquiries until the next online get together. However, hamstrung by writers block, yours truly’s decided to publish these queries today.

This offering in lieu of writing a blog, which if I’m being totally honest I’ve little enthusiasm about penning. To make up for using these questions today, I’ll write some more catechisms for next Thursdays online get together with buddies.

As per usual with my quiz round, these questions, and answers claiming to be true, are utter hooey.
