Question 35 in our cryptic quiz: ‘Three is the magic number’

16th September 2009 by Denise

Moving swiftly on (did you see we had a three hour promotion earlier on? Keep your eyes open – there’s more promotions planned.) – our next question awaits! Today’s winners will all receive a pack of MiniCards and a brand new Flickr Pro account.


Guin’s Introduction

Surprised? I know, I know – so many people assume I’m from a different continent altogether. It’s my name that’s misleading, I suspect. But no, I’m from the other big continent in the southern hemisphere – South America, specifically the Andes. My family roots there go way back.

Oh! It’s not that at all? Oh, I see. You weren’t expecting us to be so closely related. Oops. Sorry about that. I didn’t mean any disrespect with the, “oh I see,” comment.

Well listen, c’mon in. Mind your heads. There you go. I’ll give you a full tour so you can find your way around if I’m not here. I think you’ll find my orderliness and your orderliness are the same. It’s why Sus suggested you come stay with me, I suspect. You need thick skin to put up with our friend Erin. She’s much too defensive, you might even say prickly. She sure does have spine to spare, though. Anyway, she’s already got three house guests of her own. Me, I’m always happy to be the subject of experiments like this.

Oh, does that hurt much? Well, I’ve plenty of large chairs and soft cushions. I’m sure we’ll be able to make you comfortable. Now on your left is the kitchen…

QUESTION: What sort of animal is Guin? If you feel like hazarding a guess about Erin and Sus as well, go right ahead!

Answers in the comments please – we’ll approve all the comments tomorrow when we announce the answers. New to the quiz? It’s part of MOO’s Third birthday celebrations!
