Chasing perfection … answers

August 28, 2010 in Culture, Quizzes

Here are the answers to the questions I posted yesterday, which were taken from the 2010 Ballyhaunis Inter-Pubs quiz.

Since I now know it exists, I have a fiendish plan to gather together as many readers of this blog as I can and pack them into a Ballyhaunis pub on the relevant night next year. How can we lose?

Well, we’ll possibly have to score 100/100, but other than that…

Questions (main list):

  1. In the song ‘My Darling Clementine’, how does Clementine die? A> Drowned. (And, apparently, it should be called ‘Oh My Darling, Clementine‘. So there!)
  2. Which book of the Bible has the shortest title? A> Job
  3. What is the most westerly county in the United Kingdom? A> Fermanagh (Annoyed at this one. We said Derry.)
  4. By the end of the song ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’, how many gifts has the song-writer received? A> 364
  5. The fictional character Oliver Mellors is better known by what title? A> Lady Chatterley’s Lover
  6. The year 1961 reads the same upside-down. This will not happen again until what year? A> 6009 (Very annoyed with ourselves here. We wrote down 6119. Doh!)
  7. Who played Mindy in the TV series ‘Mork and Mindy’? A> Pam Dawber
  8. Larry Mullen has played the drums in two famous bands. U2 are one of them, what is the other? A> The Artane Boys Band
  9. Name the character played by Jack Lord in ‘Hawaii Five-O’. A> Steve McGarrett
  10. Riddle: What is better than God, worse than the Devil, the poor have it, the rich need it and if you eat it, you die? A> “Nothing”
  11. Which Cork senior footballer holds the record for the most number of inter-county appearances for that county? A> Graham Canty
  12. Name the third son of Adam and Eve. A> Seth

Picture round:

  1. Paddy O’Gorman
  2. Enda Kenny TD
  3. Alex Higgins
  4. Susan Boyle
  5. Mary Wallace TD
  6. Mary Harney TD
  7. Mary Hanafin TD
  8. Mary Coughlan TD
  9. Bill Clinton
  10. Monica Lewinsky

And finally, the extra special, super-duper bonus questions:

  1. ‘Daily Wine Deals’ in an anagram of which actor’s name? A> Daniel Day-Lewis
  2. In 1976 ‘Bohemian Rhapsody‘ was knocked off the British No. 1 spot by a song whose title featured in the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ itself. Name the second song. A>Mamma Mia‘ by ABBA
  3. If James is five, Gordon is four, Henry is three and Edward is two – who is number one? A> Thomas (the Tank Engine)
  4. February is the shortest month of the year, clearly, but what is the longest? A> October (due to the clocks “going back“)

Hope you did well there.

The campaign for victory in 2011 starts here!
