Question 44 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

21st September 2009 by Emilie

Moving onto the next question. It’s time to check on our bears, apparently Goldilocks is causing trouble, again. If you want to win a Mix Tape USB from Suck UK, you know what to do – answers in comments please!


Unbearable Lightness of Being

Nick was waiting for the three bears when they finally arrived at Moo HQ. He got straight to the point, “Goldilocks is not who she seems and you’re in grave danger.”

“Oh,” said Momma bear, “I’m sure you must be imagining things.”

“Danger,” scoffed Poppa bear, “she can’t be stronger than me!”

“Why,” asked Baby bear in a soft voice, “who is she really?”

Nick told them who Goldilocks really was and all three bears went silent.

“Oh dear,” Momma bear finally said.

“I… I see,” Poppa bear added, “that is frightening.”

“What can we do to help,” Baby bear asked?

Nick said, ” I have a distant cousin who has a friend you can stay with. She evidently has a bit of an obsession with penny buns, so I’m sure you’ll get along. Go there and wait. Once everyone is safe, we’ll figure out a plan.”

QUESTION: Who is Nick sending the three bears to stay with?


See you in a few hours for the last question of the day…
