Q is for...


Whenever I stayed in London with 'my' school, we stayed in a hotel that was not far from this pub. And this pub hosted a Quiz-night every Sunday. We actually were there one year when they had the quiz and we were (the six of us together) able to answer quite a few questions that night. We hadn't joined though, so we couldn't win anything.

There was a time in the past though, where I did join in. I was actually part of a pubquiz team. And we were the proud bearers of the wooden spoon. In other words: we were always dead last! But then again, someone has to be! We got questions like: what is the fruit of the rose called, what did Danish Ole Kirk Christiansen invent and who was emperor of India in 1890? I knew the first answer, but only in Dutch, which didn't help. I knew the second answer, but my team mates went with a different answer. I knew the third answer and we got that one right (they listened to me). So, without googling, would you know the answers?

This is the letter Q for ABC Wednesday. Why not join?


  1. Nope...I guess I got the Wooden Spoon and I'm proud of it..(:0)

  7. Is a rose hip the answer to the first one? Otherwise, I have no idea! But why is the word "quiz" spelling wrong on the sign? Too many questions, I know!

  9. Only 1 out of 3 for me, pass that wooden spoon. There always seems to be a Quiz night on somewhere, there is a local one which it is worth attending just for the quiz master who is so funny.

  10. I'd guess Victoria for the 3rd!
