Pub Trivia Wades Back In: The Answers


Usually I'm good about at least neatening up before I fall off LJ (i.e., posting things like this!) - clearly not this time. Sorry, all. Here are the much belated answers!

* What is the animal known as a "river horse"? Answer: Hippopotamus
Correct: stillsostrange, pats_quinade, mkhobson, jess_ka, glorioushubris, maureenmcq, shaolingrrl, cyphomandra, secritcrush, davidlevine

* Death Valley is in what state?

Correct: sarah_prineas, snurri, merylinabarrel, glorioushubris, maureenmcq, shaolingrrl, secritcrush, davidlevine

* What is Tiger Woods' first name? Answer: Eldrick

* Which Italian city has famed mass transit system known as "vaporetti"? Answer: Venice
Correct: sarah_prineas, stillsostrange, snurri, jess_ka, glorioushubris, maureenmcq, shaolingrrl, cyphomandra, davidlevine

* "Mistake-out" is the original name of what office product? Answer: Liquid Paper
Correct: Nobody got the mistake-out question because they did the same thing we did - went for Wite-out/White-out instead of Liquid Paper (they're owned by different companies). We thought this was dumb as bricks, but still lost the point, so feel free to give yourselves a free point and we'll all just pretend we stormed the judges table or something.

Oh, gawd. It's Elrond, or something. - sarah_prineas

Eldon? (Something with an E, I am sure.) - secritcrush

if it's not Tiger I feel gyped - jess_ka

Horndog, apparently. - shaolingrrl


* What is the name of newspaper published daily for U.S. servicemen around world?

no idea. I am, however, suddenly curious as to what cartoons it has. - cyphomandra


* "Dyspepsia" is the medical term for what?

The horrible sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that this quiz is giving me. - mkhobson


* What is the name of "the beer that made Milwaukee famous"?

I think my answer to this question is something along the lines of "not famous enough". - cyphomandra
