Wedding (Singer) answers

January 7, 2011 in Quizzes

So here we go, the answers to yesterday’s 1980s themed questions, as asked at my friend’s wedding.

Obviously, how well (or otherwise) you did in these will give away your age!

In our case, I’m pleased to report that we didn’t let the good name of MacGyver down. We scored 19/20, which was good enough for us to be declared joint-winners with the law-abiding citizens of the Hill Street Blues table. Both tables received a free bottle of Prosecco to celebrate their tremendous knowledge. 🙂

  1. Hi,

    Just thought I’d let you know about a new comedy starting on RTE 1 at 22.15 on the 3rd February…

    TRIVIA is a six part TV series for prime time RTE 1 set in Monaghan and centred around the captain of a pub quiz team – a man who knows it all but hasn’t learned a thing…
