BSNYC 100% Clenbuterol-Free Friday Fun Quiz! (Warning: May Contain Clenbuterol)

Today is October 1st, 2010, which means three things: 1) It is Friday; 2) It is Tom Bosley's birthday; and 3) It is time for me to put aside my woodworking, don my best chicken suit, load up the Wagon Queen Family Truckster, and head on up to Boston for my BRA at Landry's olde bicycle shoppe.

In addition to an adenoidal whine, an irritable helper monkey, and large amount of baggage both actual and emotional, I may be bringing to Boston the foul weather we are currently experiencing here in New York. This means that the leisurely and emphatically non-"epic" pre-event ride that is scheduled to take place at 4:00pm could possibly be in jeopardy in the event of extreme and/or chubby rain, and should there be any change of plans I shall alert you to them by means of my "Tweeting" account. Regardless, the BRA proper will take place at 7:00pm regardless of weather, inasmuch as the building in which Landry's is housed presumably has some form of roofing.

In the meantime, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz, and since I will be in transit as you take it I will ask that you all adhere to the honor system in my absence. As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer. If you're right you'll experience confirmation, and if your'e wrong you'll experience comedy.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and avoid questionable meats.
