WHO ARE THEY?
A Readers’ Quiz.
Following the immense popularity of my last Readers Quiz, I’m going to offer you another teaser; another little ray of lightness and entertainment during these grim times and amidst the tedium of the elections.
Regular readers of this blog will have seen mention, from time-to-time, of a mysterious character known as “The Pinball Wizard”. I’ve mentioned this arcane figure occasionally – as have many readers. Indeed, one suggested that the identity of “The Pinball Wizard” be the subject of our next quiz, so here goes.
This time the questions are going to be a little more difficult than last time. I want readers to answer the following questions:
1: Who is “The Pinball Wizard”?
2: In which job did they earn the nickname?
3: Where & when did they earn the nickname?
4: Explain in detail just why the name “The Pinball Wizard” was applied to this person; how, exactly, did the person’s actions earn such an appropriately descriptive name?
5: What other possible – err – career embarrassments might afflict the individual concerned?
There are also bonus points available to anyone who experienced the actions of “The Pinball Wizard” first-hand – or witnessed such actions.

There you go, readers – get your thinking-caps on!
