Clickhole Asks “Do You Know The Appropriate Amount About Rhode Island?”

By  |  0 Comments

We expect all of our readers to get “inappropriate” on this quiz.

We’ve been following The Onion for almost 20 years now. We can remember printing out stories to show people at bars back at a time we didn’t even have a cellphone, and even if we did, it probably couldn’t surf the web. It’s always been an excellent source of parody of the media and, as the media has evolved, so has The Onion.

The Onion has focused on┬áthe mainstream news media, but last year, they launched Clickhole, which focused entirely on social media content, especially the “clickbait” stories so prevalent on Facebook. Typically, they like to run with generic stuff like “8 Things Twins Are Tired Of Hearing” which, oddly enough, has eight items that most twins probably have never heard in their lives.

However, they’ve just posted a strangely specific quiz about Rhode Island, where the goal is to have an “appropriate” amount of knowledge about our state. However, given that we’re living in Rhode Island and a lot of you are too, we’re guessing that there’s a good chance that you’re going to veer into “inappropriate” territory pretty quickly.

Anyhow, have at it:
