I swap and change depending on my mood

Love this idea!

…Though sadly Food and Drink is my weakest subject by a mile!!! Give me Science and I’ll blitz it, Film and TV, maybe Geography I’ll have a good go. I will try but will be blind guesses on most I think!

My answers :woman_facepalming:t2::

Summary
  1. Sheep - one I actually know!
  2. :woman_shrugging:t2: Tequila Martini
  3. Waldorf… I know it’s not a Caesar and can’t think of many others. I think the Waldorf has celery
  4. Venice
  5. Zucchini
  6. Nut?
  7. Noel Fielding is in it, don’t think he’s replacing Sandy but only answer I have
  8. Milk?
  9. Probably C - 3.6million
  10. I have heard this on a quiz and can’t remember, it’s Verm something.

Disastrous :rofl:

Will try and come up with one over the weekend :blush:

Edit: Sorry got the reply wrong, possibly different as it’s to the first post? Anyway replying to @VanillaWithSprinkles Food and Drink questions.

Also just realised I rushed in on answer 5 and put the wrong answer, reading my answers back now I do know that one damn it :joy:

Might be an idea to do a mixture of topics within each quiz to give everyone a chance?

You could just set a General Knowledge round? In a real Pub Quiz you have to answer all topics though so I’m up for having a go at subjects I’m useless at. :rofl:

I love pub quizzes and am always happy to come up with questions, will gladly do general knowledge too :blush::+1:t2:

I think I’ll do a science round next but feel free to be a quiz master and post questions on whatever you fancy. From general knowledge to specialist subject on something niche like Star Wars prequels I’m sure that once this quiz is fully up and running there will be something for everyone.

@VanillaWithSprinkles. Is that all the branches McDonald’s have??? I thought it would have been more!!

Google/Wikipedia is saying 37,855 :+1:

37,855 restaurants

McDonald’s restaurants are found in 120 countries and territories around the world and serve 68 million customers each day. McDonald’s operates 37,855 restaurants worldwide, employing more than 210,000 people as of the end of 2018.

:rofl: So I scored 3½! Should have checked my answers before posting to change to aubergine but even then only 4½ :see_no_evil:

Bean is obvious now the answers are in front of me, the rest, nope, wouldn’t have got. Quite please that there are not way more Macdonald’s though, I find that quite encouraging! :rofl:

Know I’ve done better on Science and Nature!!!
