If Quiz - the winner
Artemis is technically the winner of the "If Quiz" because, in his words:
Not only did I give the right quote with the right spelling (kippled, of course), but for extra credit I even gave a link to the original NER blog and the wikipedia entry!
However, my quizzes are, in the spirit of Stephen Fry's QI programme, designed to elicit interesting answers rather than correct ones. "Correct" simply means what I happen to be thinking. What I happen to be thinking may be no better, as an answer, than a "wrong" one.
Other responses were every bit as interesting as the right answer. I loved Hugh's fountain pen anecdote, and Paul's muffin of the mule. Was it King Lear who said "Muffin will come of muffin"?
As for Reaction'ry and his "Ring des Nipple Lunging" and "Schnippel Schnippel Schip", he is in a class of his own and knocks knippling into a cocked hat.

In your face, Marisol Seibold! How about a big 'ol slice of humble pie, Mark Butterworth? I'll try to type more slowly for you next time, Andrew Bostom!
What're you lookin' at, Ahmadinejad? You're going down!
