If a person needs to find his local social security office, he needs to go on a grand quest where he will face a killer rabbit, a trivia challenge on a bridge, medieval knights who repeat an annoying phrase, and a logical challenge where he must prove or disprove someone is a witch by seeing if the accused weighs as much as a duck. Even if the searcher passes all of these challenges, there is no guarantee he will find the Social Security Office or the Holy Grail. Monty Python fans will understand the above references. People who do not enjoy British humor will find the following information about how to find the local social security office more useful.
