Knowing little about Little

6/10 in Stuff’s quiz on Labour’s new leader Andrew Little, four of which were guesses.


Friday’s answers

November 22, 2014

Thursday’s questions were:

1. Who said: There exists no politician in India daring enough to attempt to explain to the masses that cows can be eaten.?

2. Who/what are the characters Graceless, Aimless, Feckless and Pointless and in which book by which author would you find them?

3. 3. It’s laitier in French, latteria in Italian, lechería in Spanish and miraka in Maori, what is it in English?

4. What is an abomasum?

5. What’s your favourite dish/recipe using cheese?

Points for answers:

Andrei got 4 2/3 (#2 had three parts and I’m sure you knew the author) with a bonus for a better memory than I’ve got – I had a suspicion I’d asked questions about Cold Comfort Farm before but wasn’t certain).

Gravedodger wins a virtual roulade (with asparagus and Windsor Blue cheese) for five right – the Italian, Spanish and Maori don’t translate as milkman but the French does so I’m accepting it).

Alwyn gets three and 2/3 (missed the author in #2).

J Bloggs gets 3.

How’s your 60s trivia knowledge?

November 10, 2014

12/14 in the 60s trivia quiz.

Wow! From politics, to music, to the Moon – you have completely mastered the 60s! It takes a real 60s lover, or historian, to be crowned a true 60s Guru, and you did it! Congratulations! Most people remember the Beatles, Woodstock, or JFK, but not all of the above. Maybe you’re still bumpin’ Jimi Hendrix, or maybe you’re still watching Gilligan’s Island to reminisce after work – who knows? But whatever you’re doing, you’ve kept the 60s close to heart.

Hmm – except several answers were guesses.
