Orrible October Trivia Tease

Postby lemon_martini2 » Thu Nov 03, 2005 10:43 am

Here they are.Most folks did pretty well at the beginning and end,but sagged in the middle!

1.76
2.110 cornets
3.Nellie the Elephant
4.BJ Thomas' 'Hey Won't You Play Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song?'(10 words,50 letters!)
5.goggling,giggling or glugging
6.scissors,assessor,sessions (there may be more!)
7.Albany
8.Barbados
9.Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel
10.Personal computer
11.Sherlock Holmes
12.Dunblane-their double A side Knockin'on Heaven's Door/Throw Those Guns Away topped the charts at Christmas 1996
13.Armenia
14.126 for SQUEEZY or QUARTZY
15.Light.These are the old names for British radio stations. The Home Service became Radio 1,the Third Program became Radio 3 obviously and the Light Program became Radio 2
16.Portsmouth(held it from 1939-1946!)
17.The sea area Finisterre
18.According to the Guinness Book of Records,real tennis-the first champion was Clerg? of France in 1720 and the championship is still going strong
19.This was a bit of a hiccoughy one.I meant it to be those who'd qualified for this World Cup(which so far are Angola,Togo,Ivory Coast and Ghana) but it could be read as those countries who'd qualified for just one World Cup so you got marks for any of them too!
20.Pepys'Diary

23.Tulsa
24.As a mooring post for dirigibles

28.South Carolina
29.Vampire
