HAPPY NEW YEAR, SMARTY TROUSERS! It's time once again to put your exceptionally brainy brain to the test with the newest edition of POP QUIZ PDX—our weekly quiz chock full of sassy, fun multiple choice questions about what happened in Portland during the past week, along with a couple of rando questions just for laughs. This week, you'll be especially pleased to see quizzy Qs about local political scandals, bizarre history, and (what I consider to be) PORTLAND'S GREATEST BUTT.

But first... HOW DID YOU DO ON LAST WEEK'S "BEST OF 2021" QUIZ? Very good overall! Though I'm still concerned we can't all agree on what is the best name for a dog. Try harder in 2022!


OKAY, TIME FOR A NEW QUIZ! Take this week's quiz below, make sure to scroll to the bottom to submit your answers, and you'll instantly get your score that will tell you in no uncertain terms HOW SMART YOU AM. Also take our previous pop quizzes here, and come back next week for a brand spankin' new quiz! (Having a tough time answering this quiz? It's probably because you aren't getting Mercury newsletters! HINT! HINT!) Now crank up that cerebellum, because it's time to get BRAINY!
