Fraggle’s Quiz at Christmas

I have developed a fiendishly difficult or relatively easy (depending on your point of view) fun quiz for y’all to take part in, like a Christmas Quiz, but not really about Christmas.

1 point for each answer and part of answer correct.

You can use google I suppose, no-one will know but you~ but you’ll have to live with your evil perfidy forever.

Don’t look in the comments until you’ve finished the quiz either!

    9) Noodles. I like the fat Udon ones!

    c. George Orwell.
    1) Patrick Bateman, in American Psycho.
    Batman, in The Dark Knight.
    Jamie Graham, in Empire of The Sun.

    Dan Evans, in 3:10 To Yuma.
    6) Kazakhstan (been there)

    Some must be in Africa of course, so I will also go with Chad.
    But I won’t cheat for the other two.

    12 Years A Slave

    I expected to get the film ones, but was stumped on the horses.
    The song, I have no idea. Let me know my score!
    Best wishes, Pete. 🙂


    1. 20 out of a possible 31 points Pete, no wrong answers. Not too shabby at all. Surprised you didn’t know the actor nom’d for 8 oscars though! I will put the answers up in a couple of days, but you can google them now 🙂

  2. Bouncing off of Pete — since he got Brad Pitt and Christian Bale. Here’s a little I can add.
    Q5. “Glory, glory hallelujah, Glory glory hallelujah, his truth keeps marching on.” Battle Hymn of the Republic.
    Charles L. D. is Lewis Carroll.
    Peter O’Toole, I do believe.
    Horses I know are Cisco – Dances with Wolves & Pilgrim The Horse Whisper. For D, I’m going to guess they are the horses of the 3 Muskateers.
    for landlocked countries, I will guess Bolivia.
    What a random quiz. I wonder how you set about coming up with the questions?
    Fun, regardless.

  3. The only quizzes I like are the ones in pubs, where I can be part of a team and answer just one question and then claim that the reason we won by one was because of my inspired answer 🙂 Happy Christmas to you both and any family that happen to be popping in 🙂
