The Five Dumbest 'So Long Summer' Quiz

Farewell Summer 2011! Aside from an earthquake, a hurricane, Europe disintegrating and a stock market smack-down, it sure was fun while it lasted.

Sadly, however, it's time for all of us to get back to work (And boy do we have a lot of work ahead!). But before we go, let's take one last look back at Wall Street's warm-weather antics in The Five Dumbest's 'So Long Summer Quiz.' Answering correctly gives you a shot at an autographed copy of Jim Cramer's Getting Back To Even.

Enter by midnight Monday, Sept. 12, by emailing your answers here with the words "Contest Entry" in the subject line. We'll rerun the column Friday, September 16th, with the answers and the name of the winner. If there is more than one correct entry, we'll have a drawing.
