Front Door’s revenge: answers

April 7, 2009 in Quizzes

door-and-waterHere are the answers to the picture round and quotes I posted earlier in the Front Door‘s revenge post.

I should have pointed out that last night’s quiz was the first in a three-part event, which continues after the Easter. You can read all about it on the Front Door’s website.

The quizmaster didn’t cover himself in glory with regard to some of the answers. After asking us who had released ‘Take a chance on me‘ in the 1990s, he later told us it was “a band called Erasure” in a tone which definitely made it sound like he’d never heard of this obscure group. We also had an argument with him over the name of the Golfing Major which will be taking place this weekend. I’d written down “the masters” on our answer sheet but a point had not been awarded. “Sorry, we were looking for ‘US Masters'” was his only defence, even though the tournament is officially called “The Masters“. Thankfully, we got that one sorted out with another member of the correction team.






Picture round:

  1. Duffy
  2. Rihanna
  3. Madonna
  4. Miley Cyrus
  5. Lady Gaga

And now the quotes:

  1. “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” A> Mohandas Gandhi
  2. “I’ve lived through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.” A> Mark Twain
  3. “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” A> George Bernard Shaw
  4. “I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation” A> Albert Einstein
  5. “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth” A> Oscar Wilde

One final tale of the quizmaster. When reading out the answers to the quotes round, he skipped through them until he reached no. 5, telling us it was, of course, “Ireland’s own Oscar Wilde”.  This lead folks around us to wonder what G.B. Shaw had done to deserve his depatriation… 🙂
