    1. I’ve pulled that one on a few family members… :D

      They 1) leisurely flip through the pages, and when they don’t find it, they 2) begin looking more earnestly. When they still don’t find it, they 3) start at Genesis and frantically work their way to Revelation. Finally, they give up and 4) check the table of contents.

      That’s when they figure out that they’ve been fooled… and they run after you with a meat cleaver. ;)

  1. Okay … thinking this was one of those “tests” where you scored your answers, I did just that … WWII Savings Bond (check), Hercules (check), Charlton Heston (check), Book of Galatians (check) … I was ripping along pretty good … Song of Solomon (good one :) … but then the Jonah question puzzled me! Didn’t look quite right! Then it dawned on me … this was a trick quiz! That’s not very nice! I be sharpenin’ my blade now … Waugh!
