12 April 2009

Weekend Reading Roundup (Quiz edition)

Q: Who got his daughters a dog named Charlie, to fittingly honor a Charlie Dawg who used to live in Sea Isle but now calls Philadelphia home?

A: The guy who lives in the White House.

Q: What's going to be the biggest issue in D.C. the week I go back to get my skull bones re-installed with titanium?

A: Yep, the one I wrote about in an Inquirer editorial a couple weeks ago, and the Times editorial page wrote about today: Health care.

Q: What's the greatest band in history?

A: The one with a three-page spread in the Times today but also the one that I won't go see on the new tour since when Jerry died, so did the Grateful Dead. Even if that dude's still selling grilled cheeses, laced and non-laced, outside RFK.

Q: How does someone who calls herself a "sugar baby" not think she's a little whorey when they get a couple hundred bucks to hang out with a sugar-daddy?

A: Unanswerable (Though a Temple U expert gives it a pretty good intellectual shot in this piece).

Q: And finally, what kind of punishment does a person who takes off after hitting a 68-year-old woman, at Ridge Ave. and Conarroe St. on April 3 while driving a light or medium colored pick-up truck with extended cab, four doors, factory rims and tinted side windows, deserve?

A: The picture says it all. And if you know the scumbag driver, call Johnny Law at 215-685-3180.
