Snooker loopy answers

January 27, 2011 in Gilligan's, Quizzes

Good day all. Here are the answers to the questions posed in yesterday’s post, Snooker loopy.

Apologies to anyone who saw yesterday’s post within the first hour as you’ll probably be surprised to see 16 answers below.  The original version of the post only included 14, as the other two were hidden around the back of my note-taking device.

At least that’s proof I don’t take my iPhone out during quizzes… 🙂

Lots of interesting answers there.  Certainly several I haven’t heard before, which was nice.

The picture round included two people I’d never even heard of, yet alone seen.  Now that was disconcerting!

* So the quizmaster said. That wiki article seems to refer to them as foals – which was our (guessed) answer. It is a type of horse, after all.
