A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the evening.
They turned on a night light, turned on the phone answering machine, covered their pet parakeet and put the cat out in the backyard.
They phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi.
The taxi arrived and the couple opened the front door to leave their house. But as they were leaving, the cat they had put out into the yard scoots past the husband and back into the house.
The couple didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the parakeet and generally gets into too much mischief. The wife goes out to the taxi while the husband goes back inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, the man in hot pursuit.
Waiting in the cab, the wife doesn't want the driver to know the house will be empty for the night. She explains to the driver that her husband will be out soon. "He's just going upstairs to say good-bye to my mother," she explains casually.
A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab.
"Sorry I took so long", he says as they drive away. "The stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. I had to poke her with a broom stick to get her to come out! Then she tried to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck and I even had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me! Boy, you'd think at her age, she wouldn't have that much fight left in her. But it worked. I hauled her fat ass downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!"
The cabdriver hit a parked car...

Editor's note: I've tried the test several times and it appears that it could be weighted towards the more popular distros out there. Being a bit of a gearhead, I lean towards the Slackware distributions in real life. However, that particular OS did not appear in my results, which included Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Mandriva and Fedora.
Update: I tried once more and selected "Expert" under Linux knowledge. Lo and behold, Slackware appeared. I'll be truthful and state that I do not consider myself and expert. In fact, I'll wager that no actual expert would consider me one. But I do like Slackware. A lot. Anyway, consider the quiz to be a useful tool, not the Oracle of Delphi.

And now for a few images:
Now if you'll excuse me, or even if you want, I'm going to go do the Happy Dance around the office while wearing my St. Louis cap.
Update: Looks like the lovely and talented Alliance Fitness Instructor is raising her son the right way.
