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. :)

Wow! Impressive, Carmen!! I remember the Thin Man quote, was "you may serve the nuts." Then there is a joke about the nuts. But maybe they said both, fish and nuts. I mean, you can't just have nuts for dinner. Fish goes well with nuts. I think I'm rambling....
