Bubble Wrap POP Quiz

Okay. Clear your desk and put away all your books. Get out a clean sheet of paper and a number 2 pencil.

If you have any chewing gum in your mouth, please spit it out in a tissue and bring it up here to the front of the class to toss it in the bin. Might I remind you, Christine, that there's no gum allowed in class, now or ever!

All right. expateek will be showing you six photographs. You are to determine, solely from the size and shape of the packed carton, what household item is actually inside the shipping materials.

Please write your answers neatly. Extra credit for creatively wrong answers will be given at expateek's sole discretion.

Good luck, and no talking please. This is not a collaborative exercise. Cheating will not be tolerated, and anyone caught comparing answers will be asked to leave the classroom.

Let's begin.

Excellent. Please turn in your papers to me. Comments are welcome in the comment box below this post. expateek will mark your efforts by the end of the week and exam results will be posted online.

Good luck.

1. Juice-a-matix 5,000. I am so jealous! It can double as a wood chipper.
2. Obvious! This is the contemporary sculpture of buttocks named Full Moon Over Vienna. How ever did you acquire this dahling?
3. Oh my! Expateek has an adult sized spring horse! I have heard that these are so good for the abs. No wonder expateek stays in such great shape.
4. A telepost. There is only one use that I can think of for this. Me thinks that the teacher is kinky.
5. Bottom box: socks Top box: more socks
6. Diving buoy. Why expateek needs one of these, I can not fathom.
