Tuesday’s answers -updated

Monday’s questions were:

1. Who uses these phrases and what do they stand for:  Dirty Gerttie, Tweak of the Thumb and Red Raw?

2. Name six members of the G8?

3. It’s farfalla in Italian, mariposa in Spanish and papillon in French – what is it in English?

4. Who said: “If you want something said, ask a man . . . if you want something done, ask a woman.” 

5. The first four lines of our National Anthem in Maori are: E Ihowa Atua/O nga iwi matou ra/Ata whakarongona;
/Me aroha noa .
What are the next four lines?

Gravedodger gets the electronic bunch of flowers with 4 right.

Paul got 2 1/2 right  (they are numbers used by housie callers but you forgot to say which numbers they refer to) with a bonus for good try for # 3 and accuracy and humour for #5.

Adam got 2 right. I’m not familiar with Lilo Lil but he can have a 1/2 for her too and a bonus for humour for #4.

PDM got two right, 1/2 for being close and making me smile for #1 and 1/2 for #4 because he may be right.

The answers follow the break:

UPDATE: Bearhunter answered after I’d done the marking this morning and scored 4 1/2 which earns an electronic bunch of flowers too.

1. A bingo caller – 30, 51 and 64.

2.  Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States.

3. Butterfly.

4. Margaret Thatcher.

5. Kia hua ko te pai;/Kia tau to atawhai;/Manaakitia mai/Aotearoa.

    Robert – that’s what they call a thread jack. You’ll get away with it once but in future if you want to get traffic to your blog on an unrelated matter you’d be better to join a general debate elsewhere.


  3. Thank you ms. homepaddock. I felt that you might genuinely be interested in some to-ing and fro-ing between an environmentalist such as myself and Don Nicholson and couldn’t spot your ‘genearl’ thread. Feel free to scrub the link and forget I exist. I’ll manage.


  4. homepaddock says:

    Sorry, Robert, I jumped on my high horse without thinking.

    I don’t have a general debate but I do have a Your Page – under the photo, to the right of home, about, comment policy & where do you come from.

    I set it up so people could introduce new topics but I’ll excuse you for not finding it because I’d forgotten it was there.

    robert – try it over at Red Alert or on Gotcha.

    See what happens there – you are lucky HP is so tolerent.


  6. Thanks for the redirection hp.
    Red Alert pdm?
    That sounds like a commie enclave 🙂
