Abstract

Dave Kim fiction It's the last round of the fourteenth annual Presbyterian United Bible Quiz, and Freddy Hansook Chung of Glendale, California, is in the lead with 7,300 points--2,100 ahead of second place. Staring into the dark auditorium where his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Young Min Chung, are sitting with their well-worn Bibles and sending telepathic cheers to their Young American Hope, Freddy takes a deep breath and locks his fingers over the rubber buzzer pod, which by now is as hot and pliant as a woman's breast, or what he imagines a woman's breast must feel like. The buzzer even has a nipple, a Phillips-head screw working a dent into his palm with each push, and twice Photograph by Ryan Ellis WINTER 2008 / ThE MIssouRI REvIEW 11 Freddy has given it a gentle squeeze for good luck. The buzzer works perfectly, like an extension of his hand. There is almost no delay between the moment of depression and the electronic brring of his bell, unlike some of the homemade buzzers he's had to endure in his long quest to qualify for PUBQ XIV, the "Super Bowl of Bible Quizzes," as printed on the event's program.
