Dan’s Dingbats Challenge III

It’s back! Dan’s Dingbat Challenge III!

If you’ve not played Dan’s Dingbat Challenge before, you’d better go back and look at the first and second ones, and Andy’s one. Or just go look at the answers to my first and second ones. Or just give it a go.

I’ve made a few changes since last time:

  • There’s a nifty little JavaScript to automatically put your cursor into the box you have to type into, to save you having to click in it. You should now be able to play the whole game without touching the mouse.
  • I’m using incremental graphics, so even if you’re on a slow connection you should be able to make out (mostly) what the picture is, even before it’s loaded.
  • The penalty for wrong answers and skipped questions has been increased to 50 seconds, so it’s really worth your while to look at every one for a few seconds before giving up. As usual, there’ll be “half-marks” available for very close-but-not-quite-right answers.

3 Brazilian Soldiers

Donald Rumsfeld was giving the president his daily briefing.

He concluded by saying: “Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed.”

“OH NO!” the President yells. “That’s terrible….just terrible!”

His staff watches as he buries his head in his hands and saying, “This is bad; bad for the coalition.”

His staff sits stunned at this display since he had never shown much interest when other reports came in of American casualties.

Finally, the President looks up and asks to no one in particular, “So exactly how many is a brazillian?”
