Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! We are already half way through the weeek...and halfway through the year! Today is June 1st...WOW...where did the time go, huh? Happy June to you all!

So let's see what we did (or didn't) get right with yesterday's NIQ!


The NIQ for Tuesday was:
What is the biggest selling item at Walmart?

Simple enough...except that we had
NO WINNERS for this answer yet again!! In the words of the those people who text a lot... "WTH"?!?!

The Answer: Bananas!

We may not have had any winners...however... an "Honorable Mention" is being given to Ketabcha for her answer of "fruit"...because a banana is a fruit, but I needed a little more specificity. Good job though!!!!

WOW>..this is a new record! FOUR days...FOUR questions...and FOUR days of NO winners! This is crazy! Well...let's see if we can break the link, or if we are going on day five of no winners?! As always....HAVE FUN & GOOD LUCK!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The "Nearly Impossible Question" for Wednesday, June 1, 2011:


Just about 10% of Americans admit they were afraid of these as children and are still frightened of them as adults – what?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wednesday's NIQ Bonus Question:

This is new to the NIQ...a multiple choice question! Yes...I am making it a little easier for you! All you have to do is put which letter you think the answer is...and if you are right, you are a winner! Good luck! And please...no cheating!

What did 2 Brooke High school students get accused of recently?
A) Choking their chihuahuas
B) Squeezing their squirrel
C) Killing their chicken

D) Hacking their yack
E) Dancing exotically outside the Copacabana

I've always been petrified of spiders but I'm going to say "clowns" because they still scare me especially after watching "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" and reading Stephen King's It.


For the bonus question my answer is "D." I don't know what that means but it sounds like something high school kids would do.

Tax audits...oh wait, I'll say witches. Didn't one put kids in the oven in Hansel and Gretel?

Don't know where Brooke HS is located but aren't the first 4 all of the same thing like in whacking their weiner?

I'll go with A.

I guessed banana, but didn't post it. Psychic posts don't count redbird!

Today's answer IS:

Mean old men/women with a big mole on their nose.
