In an effort to liven up the boards again, some of us have decided to resuscitate the Daily pub quiz but we will be doing

it on a weekly basis. This is a tribute to the original founder, jstkdn. We have decided to take turns coming

up with the questions. The team consists of myself, Ms. Helen, nicnic and detectivehappy.


1. Each week we will post 10 questions.
2. Each Quiz runs exactly one week.
3. The first person that has all 10 questions right, wins. Or if no one has all questions right, the best one wins.
4. You can only post answers ONCE for the same quiz.
5. No cash involved. Just glory. :)

*more feverish mutterings....*

Oooh, Ireland!! God made beautiful countries all over the world, and then he finished off with Ireland. It can't be topped. ;-)

1. Not a clue. Sounds fun though!

2. About the deepest brown there is. Looks like somebody dumped coffee into it.

3. I always thought it was stout beer and vodka. Ick.

4. Lie down on a stone bench, say yer prayers, thank the guy (Thomas, I think his name was) for holding onto you while you take yer life in his hands, lean REALLLLLLY far back, kiss the stone, and then kiss yer butt goodbye. It's a helluva drop where they've put that thing!! ;-D

5. Erin (Ireland) forever! (sorry all you Aarons, they forgot about you. ;-)

6. Mutton or lamb according to my Murphy grandfather. ;-)

7. Think one of 'em's named Bono?? Not a clue for the rest of 'em.

8. White, green, and orange.

9. I've been told the white represents the Christian church, with the other two colors representing its two main divisions in Ireland, green for the Catholic side of the church, and orange for the Anglican.

10. Besides physically giving the bread room to rise, it was traditionally done to release any evil spirits that might have been inside the loaf.

Great quizzes you two!! Thank you!! Now back to sleep for me. ;-D

I'm glad you all seemed to like this weeks quiz. All the ummm unusual answers definatly deserve a special mention, I had a LOT of fun reading them :)

Ok so this weeks answers are:

1 - Finnegan's Wake

2 - Ruby Red (yes I'm expecting someone to disagree with me but tough luck) :)

3 - half Guinness half Champagne (the reason I asked for the true combination is that most people just use cider now instead of Champagne)

4 - kiss it

5 - Ireland Forever

6 - Lamb/Mutton

7 - Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr.

8 - Green, White, Orange

9 - green = roman catholics
orange = protestants
white = living together in peace

10 - to ward away the devil is the answer I was looking for
although I gave points for those who mentioned allowing the bread to rise or in Squirrels case 'foofing' as it is techincally unknown which was the original reasoning behind it.

Which means we have a tie between Makensie Brewer and Secret_Squirrel well done you two. I should also mention Bungalow Bill. Who would have also tied if he hadn't mentioned beef. Yes I'm mean so I took half a point off ;)

I think nicnic has this weeks question and I hear she has tried to make them ungoogleable so watch out :D
