It's time again to resurface that classic post of Barngrille, answering a Quiz by Jarulf.

Ok, this is a great quiz, no doubt about that. Why? 'Cause I have
no clue as to most of the answers. Therefore, following my policy of
"when in doubt, sarcasm," here are some good-natured, no-
offense-intended answers.

Cheat? Inconceivable!!!

No idea. I just kill them and look for the loot. Sorry. Why did
you start me off with this one, anyway? Geeeez, need quiz
confidence. I'm sure I'll do better on the other questions, just
gimme a chance. :)

Smiley Guy? :)

Magic Resistance for all of them. But hey, assuming you don't have
that, then naked pictures of Ernest Borgnine might do the trick.

Lightning, preferably greased. Salt Water Enema spell does wonders
too.

One. Bill Clinton. Washington, D.C.

>
> 6. What immunities and resistances does Lazarus have?

Lazarus must be immune to the effects of the Ugly Stick he was hit
with as a child, because why such a dog-butt-ugly dude could attract
a room full of hot chicks to hang out with him day after day is
beyond me.

Goatboy. No wait, Jumbo Smurf, yah.

The Pinta, the Nina, and the Santa Maria.

I can't answer yet, still trying to figure out what "Wich"
means.... :)

>

The Messerschmidt 109 is a pretty good one, isn't it? Um, then
there's that Executioner thing. Oh, and that Butcher Guy has one,
isn't it "Sam the Butcher from the Brady Bunch Cleaver" ??

>
> 11. Which weapon type do you swing the fastest, swords or clubs?

I swing really fast in clubs, because I have cool cologne and a
snazzy sportcoat. Don't bring your Mage friends along, they wear too
much pink and will ruin the look you're tryin' to throw down....

The same? I don't know. I'd get out my ruler and smack that guy for
bothering with either one. Because either (a) he *bought* it and has
no excuse for doing so, or (B) he is down to his last points with
nothing else... in that case, get it over with and die.

Safety Tip: don't play with Warriors who know the answer to this
question... :)

The same?

Ring of Accurate Mighty Moon. Verrrry nice when Rogues use those....

Damn, there's that "Wich" again. You talkin' about Adria?
I'll take the Spider's Ring because that sounds alot cooler.

Savage... see "sounds cooler" reasoning above.

Beginning to lose interest.

Yep... losing interest.

Can I go now?

>

God, I just scolled down and there are FORTY of these... GEEZ! You
really don't have anything to do, do ya. :)

Ok, I'm going to edit out the one's I don't like. Maybe this will
help.

Light radius attracts the monsters like mad. Also, people can refer
to you as, "Hey, Horny Head!" and get away with it.

>

Unlimited amount, theoretically. :)

The Two by Four with a Nail Through It
The Tire Iron of Doom
The Comfy Chair


>

Mamoth? Too big to fit on a jewelry.

None. They would go kill me and laugh. I will SMOOSH them for that!
Later someday I guess. Sadly, I am just a newbie warrior. :)

255? Ya ought to if not. Why the heck not? No one uses this, do
they? Do they have that?

>

Composite, because... hey, it's Composite, man.

>
> 31. Is the Skeleton King immune to any magic?

Noper. Oh wait, maybe fire. It's been a long time since I changed
tactics on him and tried things that don't work.

>

5, 12, and 17?

There is a sign in front of each...
"You must be 42" tall to enter the Catacombs."
"You must be 48" tall to enter the Caves."
"You must be 52" tall and accompanied by your mother, or
VanDamned, to enter Hell."

Oooh OOOOH *raises hand like Horshack* I know this one!!! Bone
Spirit!!

If you try hard enough, most anything is possible. How 'bout
Raymond's trainer? :)

Seems like the broads would have the top-flight goods to me.

Man, I envy them... sure would be nice to work for yourself and be
your own boss....

It will last longer.

Wait, what about a category for ZERO answers right? I mean hey, we
little people who don't pay attention need a category too!

Yeah, sure, my answers have lots of incorrect information in them,
but hey, it's not my fault if you didn't ask a question that required
the answer, "A Duck!"....
