LAST WEEK’S WINNERS: QUIZ + CAPTION CONTEST

First of all, we have a little caption contest to take care of!

We asked folks to take their best shot at a funny caption on this Valley News photo by Geoff Hansen of a bear stuck in a tree during the Prouty.

A three-year-old female black bear yawns while waiting for several hours about 50 feet above the ground in a large maple tree in the lawn of the SAE fraternity in Hanover, N.H., on July 14, 2018. The day’s activity from the Prouty and campus tours made the bear nervous to come down, said Hanover Deputy Fire Chief Michael Hinsley. (Valley News – Geoff Hansen) Copyright Valley News.

LAST WEEK’S WINNERS

OK, we have three aces, but I’m a little ~skeptical~ about some of your names. !!! In any case, I guess if a world-class soccer player and/or Romanian politician email me, they can claim their prize.

ALSO, an eagle-eyed quiz taker noticed that I had a date wrong in one of my questions. Wrestlers visited West Leb on July 8, not July 7. We did have six people who scored 6-of-7, but none of them got the wrestling question wrong, so I feel OK about how the final scores sugared out. But ~~~sorry~~~ to all the pro wrestling fans in the house … aka Alex Bullett.

DOUBLE ALSO, see the clarification to the answer for Question 6 below.

And per usual, we’re giving another pin away to one rando (s/o to the Random Name Picker lol).

THE WINNERS OF QUIZ NO. 10 ARE:

  • Paul Pogba (really?) (but you’re an ace I guess)
  • Prof. Anton Duckula (really???) (but you’re an ace, too, I guess)
  • Griffin Shumway (you’re ALSO an ace!)
  • Deborah A. White (yay! random winner!)

An earlier headline to this story incorrectly summarized Levitsky’s argument.”
