HEY, BRITCHES BRAINY! It’s time once again to put that smart brain to the test with this week’s edition of POP QUIZ PDX—our weekly, local, sassy trivia game. And this week, we’ve got a lot of questions about two things no one likes: illegal fireworks and “independent” gubernatorial candidate Betsy Johnson. (Okay, okay… I guess assholes like those things.) Also, guess what? You can enter to win FREE PIZZA from our always delicious friends Atlas Pizza, just for taking the quiz and signing up for our smart newsletters! (And congratulations to SCOTTIE M who is our latest winner! Woo-woo!)

But before we continue… HOW DID YOU DO IN THE PREVIOUS QUIZ? Super duper good! But here’s a first: There was a TIE for our “subjective question” about what new name we should give “monkeypox”! To break the tie, I’ll decide… and the new name for “monkeypox” is “Proud Boy Blisters!”


OKAY, IT’S TIME FOR A NEW QUIZ! Take this week’s quiz below, grab our previous pop quizzes here, and come back next week for a brand new quiz! (Having trouble taking this quiz? It’s probably because you’re not getting Mercury newsletters! INDEX! TIP!) Now augment the cerebellum, because it’s time to get BRAINY!
