Thursday’s Quizzler is…….
Boudreaux, a master dartsman, was bragging to his bar mates that he was such a consummate player, he could hit the dartboard in any location at will.
“I’ll wager a hundred dollars that, no matter what position you name on the board, I’ll be able to hit it.”
Thibedeaux, tired of Boudreaux’s windbaggery, shouted out an answer.
Boudreaux stammered for a few moments and at first refused to pay. The other bar patrons, however, made sure he held up his end of the wager. Boudreaux slammed a hundred dollar bill on the counter and stormed out.
Where on the dartboard did Thibedeaux suggest?
