Sunday Quiz 16 Jan 2011
« on: January 12, 2011, 11:05:03 AM »

Lets start with a few cartoony questions as we have a Mickey Mouse quizmaster this week :rofl:
1 - Walt Disney ironically suffered from suriphobia. Suriphobia is the fear of what?
2 - What was the title of Disney's first full length animated cartoon?
3 - Which Cartoon animal's favourite food is Lasagne?

Maybe a quick change continuing my favourite subject, Food!!
4 - Which group had a top ten hit in 1975 with 'Life Is A Minestrone'?
5 - What drink was the first American consumer product sold legally in Russia?
6 - Which country would you associate with the dish Couscous?

8 - From which insect do we get the food colouring cochineal?
9 - What type of wine comes from the area bordered by Reims, Epernay & Chalons sur Marne?
10- Which historic event made Pudding Lane famous?

ok so that only has a tenuous link with food, here is another few randoms
11- Chips: Why did the chip manufacturer Intel stop calling their chips 286, 386, 486 etc and start calling them by names such as Pentium?
12- What well-known painter was famous for depicting industrial and crowd scenes of northwest England?
13- "Pillow talk" cost Margaretha Geertruida Zelle her life in 1917, by what name is she better known?
14- Many people believed that Lord Carnarvon's death was due to what?
15- What town was the birthplace of William Shakespeare?
16- What is the name of the Israeli Secret Service?
17- Adam West was most famous for playing which comic book character on television?
18- What was Skippy ( on TV )?
19- In the stories of Winnie the Pooh, what kind of animal is Eeyore?
20- Who had a 1972 No. 1 titled ‘Vincent’?

There you have it, the quiz for 16 January 2011

2 - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937 film).
3 - Garfield
4 - 10CC

8 - Beetle
9 - Champagne

11- Because you cannot copyright or register a number as a trademark
12- Lawrence Stephen Lowrey.
13- Mata Hari

Oh well, at least I can be secure in the knowledge that I won't have to think of 20 questions for next week. A couple of those questions were on 'the chase' over the last few days so at least I know 2 lol x x x

You'd think so....

I typed 'for definate' and this marvellous iPad and it's auto correct changes it to random words or Latin phrases.
Gor detonate is Latin for the act of blowing up American vice presidents
Obviously !!!
