Question 7 in our cryptic quiz: ‘Three Is The Magic Number’

3rd September 2009 by Denise

And so we reach day three of our cryptic quiz! The plot thickens – and we pick up the story of our Three Blind Mice as they try to solve the mystery of Mary’s missing frog. Is Dan St Jacques guilty, or a man wrongly accused?

We’ve got an extra special prize for our three winners today – a $200 gift certificate for DNA11! An innovative company they create portraits as unique as you are – with your own DNA! Some people might remember us mentioning them a while ago, when we spotted their Business Cards. We’re quite excited about this, and can’t wait to see how it all turns out. Find out more about DNA11 – or follow them on twitter!

But for now, on with the show!


Hardboiled, Part Three

Free Association

While Nick and Ray searched for Mary’s frog, not to mention evidence that MOO was trying to run her out of business, I tasked myself with learning more about the enemy. But the more I looked, the more I found myself marveling at the playful spirit this company had—from the very tip top to the lowest rung. If you had a flicker of a notion how stuffy most companies are, it would launch you into a funk that would shame George Clinton into playing soft jazz for a decade or so.

I wasn’t yet aware of our clients lies, but I was beginning to get the idea that Mary’s perception of MOO’s motives wasn’t quite on the same continent as MOO’s heart. I was viewing the evidence of a thematically-apt gathering (as the party-goers certainly could have used more American flag makers to prepare hats for them) when I saw them—three MOO employees that bore a remarkable family resemblance to my brothers and I. And right then I knew. I knew something wasn’t right. Our client must be lying. I scurried off to tell my brothers.

QUESTION: Who were the three MOO employees Sam saw in the portraits?


Answers in the comments please – and we’ll approve them all tomorrow morning, when we put the next clues live and announce today’s winners!

The “Three Is The Magic Number” quiz is part of our third birthday celebrations!

    I’ve missed the first two days of this quiz and so have no idea how it works…Scratching head, looking at moo on flickr and still no clue – I’m totally stumped.

  15. Denise:

    Hi Evie,
    there are clues within each story – it sounds like you’re almost there :) Different people find different questions easier or harder, but it might help to look at some of the previous questions – and the answers, so you can piece things together and see the way it works.

  16. Michelle:

    The three employees are Nicky, Dan and Stef

  17. Janet:

    Nicky, Dan, and Stef (as photographed in Richard Moross’ USA Launch Party – UK Flickr set)
