Thursday’s questions were:
1. Who said: “It is a noteworthy fact that kicking and beating have played so considerable a part in the habits which necessity has imposed on mankind in past ages that the only way of preventing civilised men from beating and kicking their wives is to organize games in which they can kick and beat balls.”?
2. Name four of the seven All Blacks who have been knighted.
3. It’s jeu in French, gioco in Italian, juego in Spanish (not to be used in place of jugo, which means juice, as I did at an Argentinean cafe) and purei in Maori, what is it in English?
4. Which university did Graham Henry study at and what qualification did he gain?
5. What will you be doing on Sunday from about 8:45pm?
Points for answers:
Andrei gets four and a bonus for spotting my dropped colon.
David got 2/12 with a bonus for name dropping.
Roger got five and a lucky you for #5 which earns an electronic bag of jelly beans (All Black but not necessarily all black).
Neil got two with a bonus for name dropping and leading me to the full answer (I only knew about Otago and PE until I read your asnwer).
Adam got 2 3/4 (and yes I thought jeu had an x too but I was relying on Google translate which didn’t).
Paul got four with a lucky your too for #5; a bonus for extra information and a good try (as in attempt, not as in rugby) for #1.
PDM got three with a nod for #4 and a bonus for Mrs PDM’s good sense.
Answers follow the break:
1. George Bernard Shaw.
2. Sir Fred Allen, Sir Brian Lochore, Sir Colin Meads, Sir Wilson Whineray, Sir John Graham, Sir Harcourt ‘Pat’ Caughey and Sir Henry Braddon (although not technically an All Black).
4. Otago, Diploma of Physical Education then Massey for a Bachelor of Education.
5. Watching, wishing, hoping, praying.
