Muddy Mo Quiz #1: KMOV Brain Trust?

St. Louis' CBS affiliate KMOV posted a web story last Saturday with the headline, "State bill proposes Christianity be Missouri's official religion" By comparing this story with the facts, see if you can determine which brain in this picture is most like the KMOV brain trust.

The story begins, "Missouri legislators in Jefferson City considered a bill that would name Christianity the state's official 'majority' religion."

The first clue comes from... The Church Lady!:
When is a state bill NOT a state bill? Now, when could that be? Could it be ....when it is a Resolution? David Sater, Missouri's State Representative from the 68th District in Cassville Missouri, introduced House Concurrent Resolution No. 13 ( HRC 13) to the 93rd General Assembly. Note to the KMOV brain trust: Politician's resolutions are theatrical, no one takes them seriously. Sort of like your attempt to be journalists.

The second clue: The story breathlessly announces, "Karen Aroesty of the Anti-defamation league, along with other watch-groups, began a letter writing campaign..." A visit to the regional ADL website . has not one word about this resolution or any campaign. Of course there is always the, "other watch-groups" Wow. Really?

Did you guess the KMOV brain trust most closely resembles a Gorilla's brain? YW say, "Damn, dog, you where I am"

Some have questioned this answer and said, "Mud Man, the KMOV brain trust could not possibly be like a Gorilla's brain, which is so large. The Mouse brain is much more likely. " So, I asked them, "Which of these brains belong to the animal which most frequenlty consumes its own feces?"
