THE WORD: GURU ASKS
Well, Guru doesn't and we need your help! See if you can answer these amazingly difficult questions and win yourself the joy of being right!
We didn’t think it was appropriate to put a picture of breast implants, so here’s a macaque grabbing coconuts instead
What new rule must senior officials at the Ministry of Transport follow?
A)They must give a portion of the bribes they receive to the big boss.
B)They must wear a train conductor uniform to the office, just because.
C)They must bring in car-shaped cupcakes when it's a colleague's birthday.
D)They must take a bus to work at least once a week. The command, issued by Transport Minister Chadchat Suttipunt, requires senior officials to occasionally take buses operated by the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) so they can better understand commuter complaints, such as long waits at bus stops. "This order is not funny. I want all officials at the management level to experience this and other problems first hand, and then come back to discuss how to best tackle them in a comprehensive manner," Mr Chadchat told the Bangkok Post. Finally a government minister who has more than sticky rice for brains!
How did a French mother attempt to help her 19-year-old daughter do well on an exam?
A)By helping her study for weeks on end.
B)By making her flash cards on the subject material.
C)By hiring a tutor.
D)By posing as her daughter and taking the exam for her. The 52-year-old mother tried to pass for her daughter by wearing elaborate make-up, jeans and Converse sneakers to sit the higher-level composition exam. However her disguise efforts weren't good enough as the test moderators realised something was amiss, and police officers confronted her at the end of the exam. The mother has been charged with fraud and could face three years in prison and a fine if convicted.
Why was a Beijing woman rushed to the hospital after four hours of playing a game on her mobile phone?
A)Because her addiction to the game resulted in a mental breakdown.
B)Because her thumbs got stuck from making repeated movements on the phone.
C)Because her eyes started burning from staring at the screen.
D)Because her breast implants exploded. Although it wasn't the game itself that caused her boobies to burst, doctors think that the pressure from lying on her stomach for four hours while playing the game resulted in the rupture. Poor quality of the material used in the implants was also a factor in this most unfortunate chest-plosion.
