Pop Quiz!

quizThis is a special day and deserves a special pop quiz. Because April is the cruelest month and because there are reports that Shakespeare’s skull is missing I thought the subject should be poetry.

      It probably didn’t help that I completely lied about them being poetry-related. Or having anything to do with either romantic comedies or The Three Stooges. I was trying to make this one completely senseless and ended up making it much too hard.

      That should be easy since you are the professional help. If I may recommend an alternative though later this month, in honor of National Poetry Month, there will be a more poetic pop quiz.
