This week’s quiz was way easier but it was just the calm before the storm. Trust me, Week 4’s quiz will come out on Tuesday and because it determines who gets $100 of my hard-earned dough it will be nothin’

By now you may have seen the news item about Marlon Jackson and his investment in a Nigerian slavery-themed amusement park. I had too much to say and I just didn't have the heart to start delving into the Jacksons and their weirdness, so I'm glad for this week's theme! I do love the Jacksons, I really, really do, I just don't always have the patience for the madness that results from getting yelled at for leaving towels in the pool or whatever else it was that Joe Jackson cracked those kids' hides for - the surgery, the unreasonable drama, the ill-advised hair.

7. Who Am I? Name this pioneering entertainer. (10 points) The Rules again: - You will have until Sunday evening at 8:00 pm to submit your answers to me via e-mail at -I will post the answers and the top 10 scores every Tuesday. -The quiz will be cumulative, so anyone can take the lead at any time! The best part is, because I love my readers so much, the winner gets a $100 gift certificate to iTunes, Target, or! I’m so for real! The best way to go about this is to copy and paste the quiz into an e-mail, title the e-mail “Week One” insert your answers and send it to me. I will only accept one entry per week per person, and you may not use an anonymous e-mail address for submissions. Don’t leave answers in the comments because what’s the point of that?! Lastly, if you use the internet to find the answers you’se a CHEATER, but to guard against you sneaky petes not all of the questions can be answered through Google alone anyway so don’t even try to break fly! And yes, there will always be an extra credit bonus question that loyal readers will have an easier time answering. 1. Photo ID. This is the cast photo of what short-lived 90's sitcom? (5 points)
