[WiZ] No, it wasn't for a hip op

Postby WiZ » Sun Sep 11, 2016 10:18 pm

On the same morning, three people (who happen to be musicians) purchase the same routine service. The hip-hop artist receives the fastest and most efficient service. No discrimination is taking place, so why should this be so?

Is it relevant what type of music the others perform? Is anyone's name relevant?
Is MC Xkwizit a rapper? Does he create beats for hip-hop?

Is the service related to technology? To sound? To sound production?
Is it OK if we name him MC Xkwizit?

Do the people performing the service know that the customers are musicians? Does that even matter to the service providers?

Is the service done to a car?
Any particular common characteristic of cars in hip-hop relevant? Low-riding cars? Rotating rims?

Is the service done at an auto shop? At a gas station? Is the service mechanical in nature? Is it a repair? Something standard done to cars?

Was the guy a beatboxer? Could he imitate a suspicious sound the car was making?

Was the guy a beatboxer? Could he imitate a suspicious sound the car was making? Exactly

***** SPOILER *****

Car mechanics frequently attest to the fact that the most useful thing a person can do when complaining about a fault in their car is to describe the sound it makes. MC Xkwizit, an accomplished beatboxer, could do so with great precision and accuracy, and the mechanic could identify the problem straight away.


Well done, LemonCurry, on the solve, and thanks to everyone else for playing.

Good one. I'm a little sad it got solved so quickly; I was enjoying that one.
