From Claremorris to Lansing

January 12, 2011 in Gilligan's, Quizzes

The Dáil, yesterday.

The Christmas season is well and truly behind us.  Heck, even those hard-working folks in the Dáil are back at work today as government reconvenes.

As has Tuesday Quiz Night in Gilligan’s, Claremorris.

My mate Ger, an absentee since the first night we discovered this regular event, came along last night. “Ye can’t sit together” we were told.

“No matter!” said I, “I couldn’t beat him otherwise.”   Oh, hostages to fortune…

As is my way, here are the questions my team missed:

  1. Where in Scotland is known as the ‘Granite City’?
  2. Kashmir Cashmere wool comes from which animal?
  3. What do you call a group of Porcupine? (Porcupines?)
  4. What is the name for the white liquid produced by the Rubber tree?
  5. The Ulster National horse race takes place at which course?
  6. How many states make up the United Arab Emirates?

Picture round:

Picture round

Give ’em a go.

Stuff I learned:

  • Lansing is the capital of the State of Michigan. Really need to learn all those state capitals some day.
  • A male Swan is called a Cob. Ditto the previous sentiment.

Update: answers here.
