Pop Quiz time!

Do you have horrid memories of pop quizzes from your school days? We’re looking to change that, by awarding prizes just for answering. No ditching class necessary.

So here’s the question (comment below):

Name one thing you’ve learned from an Uncle John’s book.

Tell us something fun. Like that yak milk is pink. Or that the world’s most stolen food is cheese.

You’ll all get an automatic “A” but three random winners will get an “A+” and win our two new kids books: Uncle John’s Infomania Bathroom Reader For Kids Only! and Uncle John’s Smell-O-Scopic Bathroom Reader For Kids Only!.

Must enter by May 10, 2013, midnight PST. Winners will be announced on May 13, 2013. Open to US residents only. Entrants must be 18 years or older.

READY, GO!

There was once this guy, Joseph Figlock, walking down the street. He was walking past an apartment building. Then he was knocked unconscious. Turns out, a kid had fallen 14 stories and landed on top of him. Both survived! The next year, he was walking past the same block and he was knocked unconscious AGAIN by another falling kid.
