TMM Quiz Time

TMM are particularly weary this morning. Not only have they survived a month, quarter and in some cases, year end, they were out last night having their brains sapped at a quiz night. So coming in today they thought they would test their readership with exactly the sort of questions they were exposed to last night. Are you ready ? Fingers on buzzers. Starter for 10 and no conferring...

  1. Who won the 1938 Nottingham cup?
  2. Why did James Francis not shoot for the moon in January this year?
  3. If A is 8, B is 19 and C is D, what is M?
  4. Who shot Angel?
  5. "Happy Jay", "Mickel Mouse" and "Red Burr" are all types of what?
  6. On which continent is Hojhab?
  7. Where would you find your "dinegestators"?
  8. In which language is "Urdatch" a greeting?
  9. If a man has 3 pennies, a coat hanger and a ping pong ball, where would he find his wallet?
  10. Kj is the chemical symbol for which common element?
  11. Which calibre is now standard on all Toyota pickups 33mm, 45mm or 50mm?
  12. If a 5.3 earthquake was to hit Blackpool in the UK, what would be the estimated value of improvements to the area?
  13. What percentage of the air in the London Underground is human skin?
  14. "You've got Mice" was a hit for which 1960s band?
  15. How many "flims" are there in a "meld"?
  16. Whose last words were "Pass the spam"?
  17. Who invented the "teetlespouse"?
  18. When did hay stop being legal tender (the year, but extra points for the exact date)?
  19. How many days in a quinquorum?
  20. 1365 is famous for what?
  21. When will Voldermort stop taking the piss?
Not surprisingly TMM didn’t win, but were left checking their hearing aids. We are taking it gently today as we are packing our various travel bags for a variety of week-end jollies. We wish you a very happy and prosperous Q2.

Google is sure efficient. I kept searching for some of the terms in the quiz, and the TMM blog (indexed already!) kept coming up in the top three places (front page, article page, and monthly archive).

anon 11.21 - Next time TMM are dragged to a quiz, you will be getting a call. Great work.


anon 12.52 - thanks. Best therapy in the world that laughter thing.

LB - yes re the bill, but in the wrong order so no points. I'm afraid. As for that other great number of the day, I think some of u were just glad is it behind us so we could call the week to a close.


Anon 2.07 - yes it is isn't it. And interestingly those words we made up are now stuck in googleland for eternity. One day when some one reinvents them for something real, some word archaeologist will find them in the google cretaceous period filed under TMM .. (whoever they were)

and anyway, it was april 1st..
