    Being an empiricist, I knew the only way to discern the answer was to take the quiz. My result:

    You’re Caliban! You see things the way they are, not the way we might wish them to be. You know that all choices in this life are an equation amounting to either truth or lie, and you choose truth. To do otherwise would be cancerous. You know that compromise is weakness and that hesitation is the manifestation of the innate death wish of lesser hippos. You did not even need to take this quiz. You know who you are. You are Caliban.

    That is so accurate it’s spooky. Therefore we know Shepherd was speaking truth.Report

    Is “Daniel Kibblesmith” a real person’s name? It sounds like a Groucho Marx character . Though originally he was going to be Hugo Quackenbush in Day at the Races, but there was a genuine MD of that name who objected to being portrayed as a horse doctor, so he became Hackenbush.Report

      He’s real, but I dunno if the name is. He made his, er, potentially fake name as part of “weird twitter.” He is rather funny at times.

      His best twitter feed is @GOPTeens.

      Good to see that Saul is up on his social media personalities.Report

      I thought the same thing about Zephyr Teachout. It sounded so much like an NGO, I was surprised to learn that Zephyr Teachout is the name of an actual human.Report

        I get the same thing with all of the various Teachouts. Also Tushnet, which sounds to me like a porn site.Report

        Is this an environmental NGO or do they just teach about minor Greek Gods?Report

      • Avatar LeeEsq says:

        @saul-degraw, why can’t it be both? Was not Zeus the God of thunder and the sky? Did not the Greeks believe that Poseidon rule over the white horses of the sea? Did they not pray to Demeter for their harvests or worship Apollo as the Sun God?Report

        “Also Tushnet, which sounds to me like a porn site.”

        Or a site where bubbies can share pictures of their grandchildren?

        Did I ever tell you about my friend’s idea for a Jewish comedian social networking site? It is going to be called tummlr.Report

      If this person wants to be know as “Daniel Kibblesmith” on teh Intertubes, we should respect his wish and enjoy what is written without regard for the true identity of the source. No one else has ever even attempted to identify the names of the Hungry Hungry Hippos, much less glean out their respective dining characteristics, so as to divide all of humanity into one of four alignments. These are the terms on which this great public service shall be rendered, and it is not for you or I to question those terms.Report

    In other news, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic have announced a Nirvana reunion tour with singer “Weird Al” Yankovic filling in for the deceased Kurt Cobain. “We figured, anyone who can parody the songs that accurately should be able to sing them straight too”, said Grohl.Report
