The Consonant Continentals

We’re constantly being bombarded by Facebook data-grabs of various kinds – asking our favourite colour, condiment, or calibre of rifle bullet. If we fall for them, our preferences are shunted off to the advertisers who have paid the social platform for the information. Then we are bombarded with advertisement pointed to what they think are our interests.

Frankly, I think that Zuks…

But there is one particular hootchy kooch that puzzles me – the one that asks me to think up a food name that doesn’t end in Q or a dog’s name that is the same in a mirror. Even if I can come up with something that fits the criteria, what use can they make of it?

Are the stupid ones designed to find people who can be sold cryptocurrency? Are the impossible ones a recruiting drive for Bletchley Park? Or do they just put this filler in when the kitten or Trump posts are running low?

I long to send out a few myself:

” Write an entire Polish novel without using a vowel.”

” Find the Good Guys in Syria ”

” Where, in Mississippi, can you legally shove a pickle? ”

From the answers I will compile a list of people who are incautious. This characteristic is valuable because they are the type of person who will invest in bulk-buy cosmetics or time-share holidays in Queensland. In some cases they can be induced to buy waterfront property in Townsville…though to be fair that is generally everywhere in Townsville some years.

They can be induced to enter a dark kitchen alone when the soundtrack makes that Wheep Wheep noise.

They can also be induced to stand for Parliament on an independent basis. Hey, there’s a good living in taking their deposits…
