I would say good day, readers, but today has not been a good day. It all started when I came into the office. There was this awful smell lingering, worse than that time Cody decided to air out his gym socks in the office.

It just got worse from there, I'm afraid. As I sat at my desk, I could make out about five different bad smells in the office. The problem? I couldn't find where those smells were coming from.

I was positive I could smell bad fish, as well as some smelly cheese. I had to get out of the office, so I ended up taking an early lunch and went outside. It was then that I decided I was not going to let bad smells defeat me.

I went back to the office determined and armed with tape, a mask, and a plan. I managed to section the office off, and had narrowed down the possible hiding places for the bad smells to just 25 squares.


T A S K



Your task for this month's contest is to find the five spaces that smell bad. Below are several clues that will help you eliminate spaces that don't have any bad smells, until you are left with just five spaces.

The answers to the questions will leave you with a number, or two, and these spaces can be eliminated. At the end of each clue is a number in brackets (); this is the amount of numbers each clue allows you to eliminate.

For the number of articles, are you counting the letter from the editor as an article?

Is this clue correct? It doesn't seem to give an answer with a number available on the list

No, I just didn't just misread the question and went to count the amount of times her name was mentioned ALL OVER the Quibbler

For everyone's information, it's too many

I only reread it again because I finished in the back cover and was confused if it counted as "inside" the quibbler as it technically was outside. So I reread the question and oops
