MLK + Pop Quiz (Part Two)

“The content of their character,” Bernie says. “Can we ever get to that?” He scratches between my ears, just so. Turns out my ears don’t exactly match. Didn’t know that until someone mentioned it, possibly in Dog On It, or maybe Thereby Hangs A Tail, hard to keep it all straight. But that’s not the point. The point is – so what if my ears don’t match?

Here’s part two of the quiz. Winner gets a copy of Thereby Hangs A Tail, signed by Spencer Quinn and stamped by me, Chet.

1. Who was Bernie’s favorite boxer?

2. Who is the Pepsi guy in Coke country?

3. What hides the safe in Bernie’s office? Bonus: What is its thematic significance?

4. According to Bernie, how many galaxies are in the universe?

5. Write a sentence or two on the difference between Princess and Babycakes.

Pencils down!

    As I recall, there isn't an index in either book….

    No index, but I also have a copy on my Kindle which has a search "engine" so I can't take the quiz. (The bonus question is really interesting, and number five would be fun.) I have several questions myself (not a quiz), but will wait to ask them.

    1.)Sugar Ray Robinson

    2.)Disco is the Pepsi guy in Coke Country. He liked Pepsi better than Coke.

    3.)A niagra falls picture is hiding the safe in Bernie's office.

    3,a.) uh, the thematic significance of the safe is that it is behind a niagra falls picture, Bernie loves waterfall pictures? uh, it keeps stuff from cases? It keeps Bernie's big guns like a rifle?

    4.)10,000? 1,000? 100,000? But I think that it is 100,000.

    5.)Princess is owned by Adelina Borghese. Babycakes is owned by Sherman Ganz. Princess is Aldo's favorite, Babycakes is not. Princess is now a friend of Chet, Babycakes is not.Princess, used to be but not now, isn't afraid of Chet. Babycakes is.

    I forgot something on #5.

    Babycakes won a lot a Princess did not, Princess only won one, The Balmoral.

    I only have two of the answers I can comment on with any confidence. The significance of the waterfall picture is that Chet says they have a lot of them in their house– Bernie is very concerned with water, and he thinks a lot about water usage in California and that region. He's very upset about the aquifer, which baffles Chet, 'cause hey: golf courses! With sprinklers, and little tiny rainbows!

    (Mild spoilers below, so beware…)

    Babycakes has been winning for a long time with a trick (worth no points) that she was taught by the trainer who switched sides; Babycakes seems not to have too much indigenous character. Princess, on the other hand, holds her head high and faces what she must bravely. She's got spunk, moxie, real, actual character. She's a genuine article, underneath all of that fluff and pampering, and she keeps up with Chet until she drops. She also tries fearlessly to attack a much bigger foe to help Chet, when it seems he might get carted off to Alaska.

    Goodness I am impressed. As soon as Rebecca said the significance of the waterfall picture I realized that was the answer. Before that I was…"ahhhhh huh?"f

    One thing no one else has mentioned. I believe Babycakes is a male and we all know Princess, with all her spunk, is a female.

    I am sort of glad that I have to be at work now and can't get back to these *tests* until too late to really participate. It calms my need to compete.
