12/12 and 537 Yellow Jackets.
I've never gotten all 12 right before. Three were very lucky guesses, three more were semi-lucky guesses, and six were fairly well informed guesses.

Damn! And just when I thought I was taking home all the marbles this week. Question 12 was my only guess.

This week's quiz must have been much simpler than most -- being a septuagenarian, I'm sure not getting smarter.
