I guess it’s time for another trivia challenge for all of you trivia maniacs out there. Today’s 10 questions should be categorized as miscellaneous. They are a mixed bag of facts that might just interest you a little. I took this quiz myself as I put it together but I’m not admitting how badly I did. Let’s just say I scored higher than one and less than four. I’m so ashamed.

As always the correct answers will be posted tomorrow. If you score anything higher than a four your doing really well and should be proud. Good luck!

4.  For what magazine did Hugh Hefner serve as circulation manager while he was raising money to launch Playboy?

There you have it. Now before I finish this posting I’ll throw in another filthy yet funny limerick. You can never ever have enough limericks, dirty or otherwise.  If you’re offended by this off-color humor, too bad.

There once was a woman named Jill
Who swallowed an exploding pill
They found her vagina
In North Carolina
And her tits in a tree in Brazil.
