## Ministry Shuffle

Editor's Note: Of course, none of this would happen in the current political climate, but in days gone by, things were different. (Ha!)

 Bet you would have loved this backyard roller coaster when you were a kid.

After the election of 1987, the Prime Minister quickly appointed his cronies (Massy, Likable, Pudge, Rank and Upperhand), to the top five ministry positions of Travel, Spending, Entertainment, Conciliation and Adjustments (NOT necessarily in that order). Massy was appointed as the Minister of Travel.

It was soon clear that none of them were fit for the assigned job, so a reshuffle occurred in 1988. Massy became minister of Adjustments.

After the Great Ice Cream Scandal, another reshuffle occurred in 1989. Massy now became the Minister of Conciliation, Upperhand became the Minister of Entertainment. Rank took the job held by Pudge in 1988.

But not much improved, so in 1990, they reshuffled again. Rank replaced Pudge as Minister of Spending,

But the Artichoke Affair of 1991 stirred up the pot again. Rank succeeded Likable.

So in 1992, each statesman has now held each office mentioned. Going into 1992, who holds which office?

## Fishy Weddings

Six members of a fishing club decided to have a triple wedding. As is the tradition with fisherman, they weighed the catches (the brides). But the brides argued that they were not the ones being caught, so they weighed the grooms, too. This resulted in six different numbers, but, surprisingly, the combined weight of each couple was the same.

Mary weighed the most. Her weight plus Toby's was less than Tim's plus Gena's.

Toby's weight plus Gena's was the same as Henry's plus Jessie's.

Who married whom?
