## Wednesday Logic Problem: Fun With Editors

Sharpen your number two pencils, it’s a Persephone Magazine take on a logic problem.

Five of the Persephone Magazine editors (one was Liza) rode their unicorns (one is named Misandry) to a meeting where they made out with celebrities (one was Timothy Olyphant), had a few vintage cocktails (one lady drank a Rum Runner), and pitched story ideas (one lady wants to write about nerds).  Can you sort out which editor owns which unicorn, which celebrity she made out with, what she drank, and the story idea she pitched from the following six clues?

1. The Gimlet drinker and the Harvey Wallbanger drinker are the lady who owns Poodle (who is Liza) and the lady who owns Jazz Hands, in some order.
2. Coco and Sara B. are the one who pitched a story about coffee (who is also the one who made out with David Tennant) and the one who pitched the story about nerds (who is also the one who drank the Harvey Wallbanger), in some order.
3. The Rum Runner drinker, who isn’t the one who owns Polka Dot, made out with Cory Booker.
4. The Singapore Sling drinker, who owns Misandry, isn’t Sally J. (who made out with Neil deGrasse Tyson).
6. The lady who pitched a story about books doesn’t own Polka Dot, Sara B. doesn’t own Jazz Hands.

 Editor Name Drink of Choice Make-out Partner Story Pitch Unicorn Name

And, when you need the answers, they’re tucked behind this spoiler box.

To sum up:

Coco drank a Harvey Wallbanger, made out with Timothy Olyphant, pitched a story about Nerds and rides a unicorn named Jazz Hands.

Liza drank a Gimlet, made out with Julia Sugarbaker, pitched a story about .gifs, and rides a unicorn named Poodle.

Sally J. drank a Sidecar, made out with Neil deGrasse Tyson, pitched a story about Swearing, and rides a unicorn named Polka Dot.

Sara B. drank a Singapore Sling, made out with David Tennant, pitched a story about Coffee, and rides a unicorn named Misandry.

Yay! I got it right :) A suggetion if this is going to be a regular thing, a single printable page with both the clues and the grid on it. I printed off the grid, and scribbled the clues on the bottom, then solved it in the bath :)

Oh shit I love logic problems more than I love brownies. This is going to be fun!

(and how do we do spoiler tags?)

So fun! This is 10000 times better than the ones my 7yr old brings home from school- they never involve smexy, kissing, booze or unicorns.

I am so totally excited. It’s gonna take me a minute, but I have to go find out who I was making out with. (Fingers crossed for David Tennant)

PoM in the conservatory with the candlestick!

Logic puzzles are always fun. Logic puzzles are even more fun when they include unicorns, alcohol, and celebrity snog-fests.

I’m already confused and amused (which is a pleasant state).

The grid disappeared sometime between last night and publish, so I just dropped it back in.
