Not the most noteworthy virtual trivia game…we missed a Black History Month question, but made a couple of awesome correct guesses on other questions. I actually blurted out, “Wow, sometimes my brain actually works! Go figure!” I was especially happy to have remembered the name of a pro football player – one of quite a lot who have also dabbled in acting, and one of a few who may have dabbled in dangling women from the side of balconies (did I just say that or just think it)?
Anyhoo, here are the questions:
1) Slogans – What video game that was released in the 1980s once used the slogan “the jigsaw puzzle that fights back”?
2) Mascots – Burnie has been the mascot of which NBA team since its founding in 1988?
3) Deserts – What desert covers much of the northern section of Chile?
4) Novels – The character Robert Langdon appears in what 2003 book by Dan Brown that was adapted into a 2006 movie?
Let Them Eat Cake (Visual)
Name the well-known person with a February birthday.
1) Cocktails – According to the International Bartenders Association, what is the primary liquor by volume used in a Paloma cocktail?
2) Sitcoms – The 2021 sitcom American Auto is primarily set at a fictional company in what U.S. city?
NERD POINT: What is the name of the company? Made right guess on the first part, but missed the bonus.
3) Bands – We had an audio clue. So…what band did that annoying song “Yakety Yak?” That I’m willing to bet some of your daddies or grandpas grooved on back in their salad days?
4) Nicknames – In the 1986 film Top Gun, what is the snake-inspired nickname of Mike Metcalf, the character portrayed by Tom Skerritt? Again with a correct guess. Thank you brain!
Mystery Two –
Yay they did a visual assist so no typing or formatting (except what I typed just now):
Final Category – Early 20th-Century History
In 1917, the NAACP and local church and community leaders organized an event in New York that had approximately 10,000 participants and was meant to protest violence toward Black people, including lynchings in Waco, Texas, and Memphis, Tennessee.
What word completes the name by which this event is usually known?
Nope, not a clue for either of us.
Oh well, some games you remember Jim Brown’s name and “Zimbabwe,” and can’t recall obscure historical facts. Did you know Zimbabwe used to go by the name “Rhodesia?” Of course you did! As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, Isla Fisher when you’re getting your freak on in Wedding Crashers! Did that movie have “Me Too” issues? Hmmmm….
