Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. This nocturnal bird likes general knowledge.

Answer: owl

general kn(OWL)edge. An owl is a nocturnal bird of prey.
2. To draw blood at Wimbledon.

Answer: bled

wim(BLED)on. Bled is to have lost or emitted blood.
3. The largest Greek island is a concrete jungle.

Answer: crete

con(CRETE). Crete is an island located in the Eastern part of the Mediterranean sea.
4. Cut into pieces by the psychopath.

Answer: chop

psy(CHOP)ath. To chop, is to cut something with a sharp tool, such as an axe.
5. Adjust false teeth.

Answer: set

fal(SE T)eeth. To adjust is to put something in order, to set right.
6. Legendary beings found among the bookshelves.

Answer: elves

booksh(ELVES). An elf is characterized as being small, mischievous and having a manlike appearance. Elves are the plural of the word elf. Despite Elvis Presley having a roguish smile, he was about six feet tall, so one could hardly call him, Elves Presley!
7. Appear from the emergency.

Answer: emerge

(EMERGE)ncy. Emerge is to come into view or to appear.
8. Omar Sharif is in the bog.

Answer: marsh

o(MAR SH)arif. A marsh is often a flooded area of poorly drained land. The thesaurus refers to it as a bog, fen, quagmire or swamp. For those players with a wicked sense of humour, a bog is also British slang for a lavatory, bathroom, loo, or toilet. With that in mind, please don't picture the scene!
9. Bob, the American rock singer, has good body language.

Answer: dylan

bo(DY LAN)guage. Bob Dylan was born Robert Zimmerman at Duluth, Minnesota, USA on May 24, 1941. He is multi-talented as a singer, musician and as a songwriter. 'Blowin' in the Wind' is a well known song of his and was released on his (1963) album 'The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan'.

As far as I know, Bob is fit and well, so he doesn't require a zimmer frame. (Awful pun alert) Hence he can't be called Zimmerman just yet!
10. Lynn, the Forces' sweetheart, is only an average singer.

Answer: vera

a(VERA)ge. Dame Vera Lynn was nicknamed the Forces' sweetheart as she became a very popular singer during World War II. The song synonymous (closely associated) with her is 'We'll Meet Again'. This was a much better song than the Eskimo version of 'Whale Meat Again' (ouch)!
11. The opportunist knows the location of the ruins of ancient Carthage.

Answer: tunis

oppor(TUNIS)t. Tunis is not only a port but is the capital of Tunisia. It is where the ruins of ancient Carthage are located.
12. Trisha Goddard likes her shredded coarse tobacco.

Answer: shag

tri(SHA G)oddard. A shag is shredded, strong, coarse tobacco. It can also be another word for the bird, the cormorant. A shag is British slang for hmmm, as Frankie Howerd would have said it, oh, ah Mrs, isn't it warm in here, please yourselves. Yes, a bit of intimacy, love making. Frankie grew up with a natural childhood stammer which he deliberately exaggerated to give a rather stuttering and bumbling delivery which made him so pleasing and unique. Titter ye not.
13. It's balderdash to say this tree resists underwater rot.

Answer: alder

b(ALDER)dash. Due to this wood's resistance to water, it often grows near water or wet soils. The alder tree has toothed leaves, conelike fruit and its wood is used in bridge-making.
14. Obtain rye whisky from this coniferous tree.

Answer: yew

r(YE W)hisky. Awful pun alert. Trust (you) to get that one! Yew trees were often used to make longbows. Many yew trees were deliberately planted along walled churchyards, or used in mazes, as both its leaves and seeds were very poisonous. In this way, farm stock were kept well away from these toxic trees.
15. One of king Lear's daughters enjoys oregano.

Answer: regan

o(REGAN)o. Oregano is an aromatic herb, whose powdered leaves, are used to season food. King Lear was a legendary king of Britain. He had three daughters called Cordelia, Goneril and Regan. William Shakespeare wrote a play called King Lear which was categorized under tragedies, along with Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet.
16. Male vocalist Peter, is an American dream.

Answer: andre

americ(AN DRE)am. Peter Andre (Peter James Andrea) was born in Harrow, London, on Feb 27, 1973. He acquired his Australian accent as his family emigrated to Australia when he was ten years of age. His three British number one hit singles are 'Flava'(1996), 'I Feel You'(1996) and 'Mysterious Girl'(2004).
17. The gangster has a huge sense of anxiety.

Answer: angst

g(ANGST)er. Angst is a German derived word which means nervousness, uneasiness or worry.
18. Only a clairvoyant could name a record by Gilbert O'Sullivan.

Answer: clair

(CLAIR)voyant. Gilbert O'Sullivan was an Irish singer, songwriter and pianist who was born Raymond O'Sullivan on Dec 1, 1946, in Waterford, Southern Ireland. His British number one hit singles were 'Clair' (1972) and 'Get Down' (1973). With his screen image of short trousers, a flat cap and a severe pudding basin haircut, it was hardly surprising he sang a song called 'Alone Again (Naturally)' in 1972.
19. It's one promising lead.

Answer: single

promi(SING LE)ad. To be single is to be lone, sole or one.
20. Large lizards do little for a character in 'My Fair Lady'.

Answer: eliza

larg(E LIZA)rds. Professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) transforms flower girl, Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn) into a regal lady, in order to win a wager. Dolittle would not qualify as an answer as it is spelt incorrectly, nor does it have five letters, which the answer stipulates. Hope you enjoyed the quiz despite the cornucopia of awful puns, double entendres and quips which unfortunately are my trademark.
