Monday Night Pub Quiz

I'm blowing my own trumpet a bit with this one. the forum I frequent holds a "pub quiz" in it's chatroom every Monday night. The quickest to type the correct answer gets a point, the first to five wins. Last night I won again. It's brilliant fun and some of the answers are hilarious and most of them I wouldn't dare put here, being either too rude, blasphemous or libelous or just too bizzar. These are last night's questions so you can have a little quiz to do yourself:

  1. Which was the first European country to issue banknotes?
  2. What were the first living creatures sent into space by the United States?
  3. How many barrels of gunpowder were discovered in the cellars of Westminster Hall as part of Guy Fawkes' gunpowder plot?
  4. What is the name of the dog in "Peter Pan"?
  5. It’s my dad’s 70th birthday today – what is his first name: the same as a soap start who came to a sticky end?
  6. Who was best man at Posh and Becks’ wedding?
  7. What is Norman Fatboy Slim Cook’s first name?
  8. Who called Michael Parkinson “a stupid white man”?
  9. How many tiles are there in a scrabble game?
  10. 10. What is the name of the temple on the Acropolis?
  11. Who sing the theme tune to Dad’s Army?
  12. What’s the round stump on the front of a saddle called?
  13. What is the only clockwise rotating planet?
  14. How long does it take the typical hen to lay 19 dozen eggs?
  15. What is pewter made from?
  16. What did Italians abolish in a 1946 referendum?
  17. Who wrote Catch 22?
  18. What does a hippophobe fear?
  19. What country hosted soccer’s 1978 World Cup?


  1. Sweden
  2. Mice
  3. 36
  4. Nana
  5. Barry
  6. Gary Neville
  7. Quentin
  8. Muhammad Ali
  9. 100
  10. The Parthenon
  11. Flanagan and Allen (actually Bud Flanagan)

  13. Venus
  14. A year
  15. Tin and lead
  16. The monarch

I'm not too worried about winning this week. Normally it's a right pain cos the winner gets to do the questions the following week. Someone couldn't do it this week so someone else stood in and they're doing it next week. Phew!
