LOVE this one. Unlike the "name them all" quiz, this one mixes memory with imagination. You can get some that you recall, and use the rhyming couplets to come up with the others. And who doesn't love Edward Gorey?
Nov 7th, 2011 at 01:40 GMT
YES! Gorey! Yes! This is amazing.

I was gonna feel super proud for remembering "ennui", but then it turns out most other people did too.
Somebody should make a quiz out of the LOST version: http://www.tor.com/blogs/2010/04/the-gashlycrumb-losties

Though not a Gashlycrum Tiny, I was an Edward Gorey character for Hallowen last year: The Doubtful Guest.

Sounds like they all came to a Gorey end.

Nice! Memorized this book a long time ago, so it only took me about forty seconds. :)

I've got this framed on my wall in the living room, so I breezed through it too. Love it!
