It's time for another PostSurf Reader Challenge!!!
Lately, I've become concerned that some readers don't really "get" what PostSurf is all about.
So this week, we have a reading comprehension quiz. This will be especially useful for any kids prepping for the SAT, or pro surfers trying to pretend their home-schooling equates to a high-school- level education.
Please answer the following multiple choice questions concerning recent posts. The first reader to answer all questions correctly will win a PostSurf prize pack: Billabong's new "Corporate Raider" boardshort, Mollusk's "Death to Locals" T-Shirt, and a premium subscription to Surfline. Thanks to our contest sponsors for supporting PostSurf!
1. In the "Deuce Whitlock" post, the author implies that this 'man-whore' should be ashamed because
A. He slept with 3 women he was not married to, at once, then stole their money, then bragged about it in a magazine. Jesus would not do that.
B. He was paid only $100 to sleep with three women. He's under-cutting other hard-working Gigolos.
C. He bought drinks for the tricks with his profit, instead of letting them supply the drinks and then also getting paid $100.
D. Lewis doesn't give a fuck about Ricky Whitlock and his sexual conquests. This is a post about the sad state of surf media - the whole thing about Ricky being a male prostitute is something called a "joke" and is supposed to be "funny."
E. All of the above.

3. If the author were to actually speak to one of the people whose businesses he's mocked, he would most likely
A. Rant and rave angrily about the topics he wrote about.
B. Beg for mercy and insist that they shouldn't hit a man with glasses.
C. Try to explain irony to them, while they were punching him.
D. Explain that all publicity is good publicity, and note that he's driven lots of traffic to their websites, and rallied people to their defense.
4. All of the following can be inferred after reviewing the posts, comments, and events surrounding PostSurf
A. There are some really fucking stupid people out there. Although they have learned how to read and type, they would surely fail a reading comprehension quiz. Some of these people own or work for surf companies.
B. There are some really, really angry people out there who take themselves way too seriously and apparently have no sense of humor. PostSurf is not run by one of these individuals.
C. Lewis Samuels is a self-destructive, bitter, delusional personality of no importance, who is most likely either an alcoholic, mentally-ill, or both.
D. All of the above.
