You Couldn't Hit the Broad Side of a Quiz

Avast* there, ye takers of quizzes!

I don’t know the parody that Camera Obscura is talking about, but if it has anything to do with counting road-kill, I’m all for it. Hey, it’s not for nothing that I grew up in the sticks…

Problem children from yesterday:

#4 – Effigy, the Ministry

#7 – Amadeus, Falco – Actually, I do remember a parody about a danish…

Extra jumbo sized points for the trans-lingual luckybuzz and her grasp of Nena’s 99 Red Balloons. I thought the Captain Kirk thing might throw you guys off. I certainly didn’t remember it… Hmmm… maybe I should do more foreign language ones :)

To the new quiz! Excelsior!

#1

You've lied your last lie
And I've cried my last cry
I'm out the door, babe
There's other fish in the sea

#2

Summer turns me upside down
Summer summer summer
It’s like a merry-go-round

#2 – Um… Ew…

I guess I must be dumb
’cause u had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used

#3

I bought you drinks, I brought you flowers
I read you books and talked for hours

#4

Wearin' next to nothing
Cause it's hot as an oven

#5

So you say I got a dirty mind,
I'm a mean go getter

#6

I remember the way that we touched
I wish I didn’t like it so much

#7

My story's infinite
Like the Longines Symphonette it doesn't rest

#8

I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
It's the only way to live

#9

We slip through the streets
While everyone sleeps
Getting bigger and sleeker
And wider and brighter

#10

As Rose collects the money in the canister
Who comes sliding down the banister?

Whee!

*Microsoft Word doesn’t know this word. I guess it’s true that Bill Gates hates pirates…

(I can't believe I'm actually getting any answers on one of these here quizzes! I guess I really only got 1.5 answers, though.)

Atchafalaya did "Watch Out, Armadillos!" It starts out with a voice-over that says something like, "In 1955 the final stretch of I-10 was opened. Five minutes later the first armadillo was hit."

And of course there are the several versions of "Dr. Zaius"; most people remember the Simpsons' musical Planet of the Apes.

Excelsior!? I haven't heard anybody say that since Bullwinkle.

I've been beaten to everything I knew--which wasn't much today--but I can't stop by without visiting the quiz. Hi, Quiz!
