Weekly news quiz: From ugly dogs to SCOTUS and a shiny new game show host

President Biden has sleep apnea! That means the nation's oldest-ever president uses a CPAP machine when sleeping — and he probably snores.

Using the traditional method of determining age in South Korea, he'd be younger; sadly, that system was kicked to the curb this week by a new law. Dare we suggest Ryan Seacrest, who has a strong track record of replacing older men, as Biden's running mate in 2024?

Seacrest seems busy, though. Anyway, many other things happened. How well were you paying attention?


If you can't see the quiz, please go here to play it.
