Question 30 of the Cryptic Quiz: “Three is the Magic Number!”

14th September 2009 by Simon G

Yay! We’ve hit the big 3-0 (in our quiz questions that is, MOO has only just turned 3)!
30 questions down, 36 left to go! (We’ve got plenty more prizes left too!)

So far we’ve seen the three bears encounter a new client and the three (legally) blind mice get themselves a little lost. You can catch up on the story so far here! Now, onwards…


The Third Zone: Interlopers

Now that you’ve stepped in and diverted the fatalistic flow of fate, we can resume our–

They are not welcome, these intrusive three
with their bursts of color and imagery.
I won’t abide such abundance of art
nor allow expression to this degree.
Growling and roaring are to no avail
on I go now to acts beyond the pale–
rending of bone and tearing of sinew.
They’ll soon know fear, in their boots they will quail,
hiding, and running, and screaming in dread,
eyes terror-wide, teeth chattering in head.
Time to undo all the works they have wrought
revel in the hunt ’til my hunger’s fed.
On then to the source, to discover who
led these fools to me and into my stew.
Let them feel regret and hide in their homes,

…these villains at the headquarters of Moo.

–and realize that menace and danger always lurks… in the Third Zone.

Q: Someone has interrupted the narrator with a dire threat against MOO!
What is this cardinally arrogant antagonist’s name?


Confused? Yup, me too! Luckily I have the answer – but you folks have the fun of working this one out. Let us know when you know the answer, and post it in the comments below.
