The management of Sunset Intersection, and the special quiz committee, wish to thank all those who took part in the first and best of the many-more-where-that-came-from S.I. quizzes. There were some good and witty guesses, but all wrong. I will be keeping the first prize Ferrari.

In Italian there’s a word that has no English equivalent: coetanee. Other people your own age. A brotherhood/sisterhood begun at the same time many years ago. Your kinfolks, even when you’ve never met and never will. I like that.

The next big quiz will involve a chicken and an egg in a rumpled bed smoking cigarettes, and the question will be: Which came first?

Stay tuned for that and much more.

Happy trials, Martin

Mutt: Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other:
Jeff: I know, I know,  "Does this taste funny to you?"
Mutt: A plateau is a high form of flattery.
Jeff: Alarms:
Mutt: Huh?
Jeff: What an octopus is.
Mutt: Oowah.
Jeff: Did you know that William Tell and his family were avid bowlers?
Mutt: William Tell? No.
Jeff: It's true. But, unfortunately, a fire destroyed all the league records.
Mutt: That’s terrible.
Jeff: Yes. So we'll never know for whom the Tells bowled.
