Baby: Hey, hey, hey, you ole’ peeps far and wide! How are you this fine evening?
Ranch: Why, I’m doing great, thank you, how about–
Hummus: Hello and welcome to Wacky Wednesday, the third day of Stuffie Takeover Week: a monthly special which occurs the first week of every month, where we stuffies take over this blog and get to write our own posts in a set schedule.
Ranch: Today, for Wacky Wednesday, we are doing something very exciting. (We were going to do a vlog, but SOMEBODY protested. *glares at Baby*)
Baby: This very exciting thing is…A MATH AND SCIENCE TRIVIA CHALLENGE! Just the three of us!
Hummus: Yeah, I hope Baby and Ranch paid attention in class. We’re all in the same grade, so this should be pretty fair.
HOW THIS WILL WORK
Hummus: There will be three contestants: me, Baby, and Ranch. There will be two categories:
Ranch: There will be three questions in each category, as well as a bonus question in the end, 7 questions in total. Mr. Polby here will be the judge. Each question is worth 1 point, and an incorrect/blank answer is worth 0 points. The last bonus question is worth 2 points.
Baby: Each question will be asked at the same time to all three contestants (a piece of paper will be held up with the question on it) and they will be multiple choice. The contestants will have 30 seconds to write the letter of the correct option onto their notepad.
Hummus: And there’s a way for you, the reader, to get involved, too! Well…not really, actually.
Ranch: Whaddya mean, there’s a way, not really?
Hummus: What I mean is that there’s no actual way for them to compete. Someday we’ll do an actual contest with teams, but for now, what you CAN do is that you can be on either Baby’s team, Ranch’s team, or my team, and root for us!
So, choose a team and start cheering your contestant on!

Hummus: 42, duh. So the answer is B). Oh, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait JUST A SEC.
Polby: Okay, so by looking at your answers, Ranch and Baby score a point each, and Hummus does not.
