Matty mouse is freshly recovered from a traumatic owl encounter and is looking to relax.
When he gets back to his home, he heads down to the local hole-in-the-wall. But unfortunately for Matty, there is new management. The establishment has been rebranded the Cool™ Club, and they have a bouncer at the door.
As he walks up, he sees a Cool™ Kid walk up to the Bouncer Who Is Quite Good At Intuiting Homophones™ and says, "Awww man, just let me in; you know me—I just forget passwords is all."
The Bouncer says, "You know the rules."
The Cool™ Kid whines pleadingly.
The Bouncer says, "You get seven attempts. I'll respond to each one with a number."
The Cool™ Kid moans pathetically then says:
> 5, is the bouncer's response.
Baaa! the Cool™ Kid bleats.
> 2, comes the abrupt response.
> 2, comes the same intimidating response.
Excited, the Cool™ Kid squeals!
But the bouncer says, "Okay, that is seven attempts".
The Cool™ Kid's jaw drops.
"ONE MORE, PLEASE!" he grovels Cool™ly.
"Password or leave."
Drooping his head, the Cool™ Kid crawls away.
Matty gives the Cool™ Kid a confused look, walks up to the bouncer, says the password and Struts In Suavely™ to enjoy the hard-earned Cheeses of his labour.
What is the password, and how did Matty figure it out?
