Quizical Quiz

 

It's a long time since I set a quiz on this Blog. So get your thinking caps on and join in the fun. There will be a prize for anyone who answers all the questions correctly - there's only five questions. And the quiz is being adjudicated by an upright member of the community, known to me and others in this locality, to ensure fair play; and that my friends and family members do not have an unfair advantage in answering this quiz.

And by the way, it is not true that this upright member of the community, who will remain nameless to protect his identity, escaped from prison after being arrested for being drunk whilst riding an emu. Ivor Hiccup had in fact served his whole sentence in prison, and it was an ostrich not an emu.

Now for the quiz. Five easy questions:

1   What did I have for breakfast this morning?

2   What is the colour of the door of 19 Acacia Avenue just down the road from where I live?

3   What did I find in my back garden yesterday afternoon?

     a)   A car tire?

     b)   A spaceship had landed?

     c)   An apple that had fallen off the tree?

4   What is the highest temperature in degrees centigrade that has ever been recorded?

5   What is the distance between the earth and the moon measured in footsteps? 

AND NOW FOR THE ANSWERS

Please do not read the answers before you have given your own answers in the comments box below. I shall trust your honesty.

1   I had cereals for breakfast.

2   19 Acacia Avenue does not have a door. It is a tent.

3   I found a dead wasp in my back garden yesterday.

4   The highest temperature recorded depends on the ladder the person was standing on at the time. 

5   Peoples' footsteps lengths vary depending on how tall the person is. 

Good luck, I hope you got all of them right.

  4. Well, I was almost 100%. I had one half right! Maybe that was half left.
    Thanks for the smiles, but I did feel like I was being set-up!
    Prayers over here for peace in the world, especially in the Ukraine. We know this could effect the World, but more closely the EU area. ;-(
