HAPPY NEW YEAR, SMARTY PANTS! It’s time to put your exceptionally intelligent brain to the test once again with the latest edition of POP QUIZ PDX—Our weekly quiz is full of sassy and fun multiple-choice questions about what happened in Portland over the past week, plus a few random questions just for fun. This week, you’ll be especially happy to see quizzical questions about local political scandals, bizarre history, and (what I consider to be) THE BIGGEST BUTT IN PORTLAND.

But first … HOW DID YOU DONE THE “BEST OF 2021” QUIZ LAST WEEK? Very good overall! While I’m still worried, we can’t all agree on the best name for a dog. Try harder in 2022!


OK, IT’S TIME FOR A NEW QUIZ! Take this week’s quiz below, be sure to scroll down to submit your answers, and you’ll instantly get your score that will tell you in plain language HOW SMART YOU ARE. Also take 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 didn’t get Mercury newsletters! INDEX! TIP!) Now ride that cerebellum, because it’s time to get BRAINY!
