vii) How many animals of each kind did Moses take into the ark?

(answers: a towel/sponge; a tip/patience/prince charming; holes; the dictionary/date line; rust/acid; yesterday, today and tomorrow; "none"as Noah took the animals into the ark but the wrong answer can be explained by the biblical context, Moses and Noah have the same vowel sounds and number of syllables. Replace "Moses"with "George W Bush"and see what happens!!!!)
