The Quiz Master

The Anybody Want A Peanut fashion department, especially Carlos and Jean-Louis, would like to thank Bartley Kives for the fabulous new chapeau:


This vibrant blue head gear is made with state of the art materials, and sports the City of Winnipeg crest on the front. If Jean-Louis would give the damned thing back to me I could wear it around town and proudly declare that "I am part of Team Winnipeg".

The hat was the grand prize for Bart's March 6 'Sharpen your pencils' quiz. The quantity or quality of the responses must have left a little to be desired if this could pass as the winning entry:

WHO EXACTLY IS "LADY ARAGON?"
A: a little bit of Gaga marketing genius

WHY SHOULD WINNIPEGGERS PAY ATTENTION TO THE CITY OF GLENDALE?
A: because watching Glendale try to keep a doomed franchise reminds us that it is possible to have worse leadership than our current mayor and council.

WHAT WERE SASKATCHEWAN RESIDENTS SHOCKED TO HEAR FROM OTTAWA LAST WEEK?
A: They were shocked, as we all were, to hear that the Conservatives are targeting South Asians. A political party trying to win over the minority vote in Toronto? Unheard of!!

WHY ARE PEOPLE STILL PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT CHARLIE SHEEN HAS TO SAY?
A: Because at some point he might accidentally explain the meaning of life.

WHO ARE DAVID ASPER AND PHIL SHEEGL?
A: Known as the Phil-Ass Duo, they are an intrepid super-hero crime fighting tandem (if good planning and management can be considered a crime.)



This may spell the end of Bart's quizes, but I hope not because rumour has it he has a plasticine Benjamin Netanyahu on his desk. That would be so cool to win.

(This is not the first time that we've added a hat to our wardrobe.)

The "Phil-Ass Duo"... too funny. Sounds like a hurtin' punk band that would trash the place!

It's a catchy name, eh? Not Free Press web-site friendly however.
