Q. Will everyone be wearing underpants?

A. As far as we know, yes. Don't you want to know what the Post Hunt is?

Q. Only if it's pertinent.

A. The Post Hunt is a gigantic, challenging, family-friendly contest that will be taking place in the streets of Washington on Sunday, May 17, starting at noon. It lasts four hours. This is the second year we've done it. Last year's event was wildly successful.

Q. Define "wildly successful."

A. There were no deaths, that we know of.

Q. How many people do you expect?

A. Remember the Obama inauguration?

Q. Yes.

A. Fewer than that. Last year, there were 5,000 people, but it was our first D.C. Hunt, and the weather forecast called for hailstones the size of fairly large hailstones. This year, we expect more people.

Q. Why?
