Morbid, Dumb, Impossible, and Morbid Baseball Sporcle Quiz

This image certainly isn’t more absurd than what you’re about to do.

The author, who will remain nameless, has created a morbid and dumb and impossible and morbid baseball-related Sporcle quiz — to which comment the reader is maybe thinking, “Pssh, I bet I can totally answer it.” And to which hypothetical thought, the nameless author is now replying: “No. No, you can’t.” And also replying: “Even if you could, what’s the point, really?”

Carson Cistulli has just published a book of aphorisms called Spirited Ejaculations of a New Enthusiast.

This caused me to think a whole lot about my own existence, and made me hungry for kettle cooked potato chips.

That was easy. But then, I’m actively treating two of those.

I typed in Lou Gehrig’s Disease. It was correct but the quiz refused to acknowledge this.

This quiz is an outrage! The quiz reads: “Can you name the Babe Ruth’s cause of death” to which I correctly answered “No.” Alas, the quiz did not accept my correct answer, instead telling me that the answer is “Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma” as if we live in some sort of stupid world where “Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma” is any sort of proper response to a Yes/No question. Get real.

Can I prevent an appreciative smile from appearing upon my face after reading this comment? Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, I cannot.

I’m disappointed that “too many effing hot dogs” was not the correct answer.

Indeed. Nor was my answer of “Death” acceptable. This quiz was clearly rigged. If Death himself cannot kill you, how could some malignant nostril do the job? I cry foul!

I tried to answer in Cistulli speak, something to the point of “Mortality is the best answer as only Ruth’s heroics could be considered immortal. That, and as the astute reader would point out, Ruth’s robust love for indulgence.”

As a member of both the Sporcle community and Fangraphs commentariat: your quiz deserves its 1.00 rating.

Dang, I said “esophageal cancer.” Thought that was a pretty good guess.
