Today is a very special day here at Long Awkward Pause because it marks our first year anniversary!
*Spits out confetti*
After all the hard work and bantering that’s gone on over the past year, we’ve decided to conduct a pop quiz today to see how well you think you know the staff.
For the first time ever we’re pulling back the curtains to give you a peek into the top-secret lives of each of the group’s members. In order to do that however, we’re gonna need a little bit of participation from you.
In the spirit of exhibitionism and for the sake of educational purposes, and after signing a liability waiver under duress, each of our staff writers forked over a handful of juicy personal tidbits about themselves to make today’s quiz possible.
Some of these facts are embarrassing, some are enlightening, and some are just plain ridiculous – but all of them are true. Please remember to fill out your score sheets with a number 2 pencil approved of by the National Partnership and Institute of Scholarly Bullshit Test Writers Association Inc.
Or just a crayon will work.
The participant who scores the highest will win an undisclosed prize package courtesy of LAP (hehe). If there are multiple highest scores, each winner’s name will be tossed into a random drawing to determine the winner. You only get one shot, so make your answers count. Answers will be revealed and the winner announced next Thursday, June 19th.
Only the letters of your selected answers are required in the comment section, but feel free to leave a smart-ass one-liner too, if you’d like. For example, your comment might look something like this:
A, A, B, D, C, E, A…
Oh, and by the way, suck it, Chowderhead!
Get it? Got it? Good.
