I played in a “name that tune” trivia night tonight with a trivia “pardner” named Kim whom I’ve played with many, many times over the past couple of years. But she also invited a couple of friends of hers, too. When the trivia DJ mentioned the words “Fab Four” in one of the questions, one of Kim’s friends said aloud, “What’s Fab Four?”
I cringed when I heard this, of course…But to my credit, I didn’t roll my eyes at this trivial “transgression!” Kim, in her smooth, patient manner, just said, “Fab Four means The Beatles.”
Which led me to dream up this trivia quiz. All of the answers will contain (or make reference to) the word “fab!” I’m going to assume you’re all AP trivia students and know who the “Fab Four” are, but do you know the answers to all of THESE trivia questions? Let’s see!
