There are at least three shout-outs to yours truly as the original PQ blogger, part of Tom Selleck's Mustache, and part of the team who argued about the Roman goddess Diana answer.

So, I was totally cracking up over all the little in-jokes in the comments section (fish report; buying a new shirt; closing down the bar in a few months) but my sister, reading over my shoulder, was failing to find the humor in any of it. I was thinking of inviting her to next month's quiz, but now I'm not so sure.

* A phrase actually used in this year's catalog. Why they didn't mention magic sparky boxes, I don't know.
