The Question of the Week will never be "What is an acceptable Adverse Impact ratio?"

Here's a neat little story from the lettercol in Thor #352:

Recently, THOR chronicler Walt Simonson and his equally-awesome wife Louise were visiting relatives in Maryland during the dog days of August and happened to stop in at a small ice cream shop named Steve's. On the wall of that august establishment was a blackboard. And above the board written in large letters, the following was inscribed - "Question of the week -- answer it and win a free Ice Cream cone!" Always looking for some new way of saving money (short of not actually spending it), Walt glanced over the question -- and felt the hand of Fate lightly touch him on the shoulder. When he walked up to the counter to claim his free cone, the girl behind it looked at him and turned to a friend. "He's wearing a Thor T-Shirt!" she said. And as luck would have it, he was, indeed. For the Question of the Month [sic] read -- "What is the name of the magic hammer that gives Thor his powers?" Some days, you don't have to work for a living!

did he have to know how to correctly pronounce it cause Stan Lee wouldn't have gotten a free cone if this was a requirement?

what good is a free cone without the ice cream?


Free ice cream cone for you! You can fill it with your hopes and dreams.
