Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Eating what fruit earns the consumer 100 points in "Pac-Man" and "Ms. Pac-Man"?

Answer: Cherry

"Pac-man" was conceived by a Japanese student when he was looking at a pizza from which two pieces had been removed. The Cherry appears in the first screen, the first fruit to be eaten. Eating the cherry gives 100 points towards the level completion.
2. Ironically, the English version of ABBA's song "Honey Honey" was not released as a single in which country in 1974?

Answer: United Kingdom

"Waterloo" was the song that won ABBA first place in the Eurovision contest that made them famous; "Honey Honey" was the second song on the "Waterloo" album. It was also the last song recorded by them in Swedish.
3. What 2009 film tells the story of a girl blogging her experiences as she tries cooking all the recipes in her heroine's first cookery book?

Answer: Julie & Julia

Meryl Streep, in yet another of her superlative performances, plays Julia Child. Blogger Julie Powell, portrayed by Amy Adams, decides to cook her way through Julia's book in 365 days, blogging all the while. This sometimes funny, sometimes poignant movie depicts the part of Julia Childs' life as the wife of US diplomat in France.
4. Fish fingers and custard is a dish best not served, but which regeneration of Dr. Who enjoyed it immensely?

Answer: 11th

The 11th Doctor, played by Matt Smith, appeared from 1 January 2010 to 25 December 2013, and was known for his bow-tie. Offered a series of dishes after his regeneration, he decides he likes fish fingers and custard. The first episode in which he appears is called "The Eleventh Hour" and was first aired on April 3 (I think it should have been April 1!) in the UK. Since this episode, so-called 'Whovians' choose to celebrate National Fish Fingers and Custard Day on April 3.
5. In which country is the sweet treat sold at fairs and theme parks, candy floss, known as 'fairy floss'?

Answer: Australia

Fairy floss probably originated in the Middle East where sugar was sometimes spun with sesame seeds, which infused it with a slightly nutty flavour. This traditional Persian sweet, called Pashmak, came in flavours such as rose water, orange and pistachio, with a texture much finer than the fairy floss likely to be sold at fairs in the west.
6. "The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, or The Theft of the Royal Ruby" features which of Agatha Christie's detectives?

Answer: Hercule Poirot

Poirot is looking forward to enjoying a traditional English Christmas, but he is warned not to eat the plum pudding. Of course, he is there with an ulterior motive - in this case to recover a ruby that has been stolen from a prince. He solves the mystery and recovers the jewel, and the prince's reputation is saved. Because it's a short story, it's not as tortuous as many of Christie's tales, but is nonetheless enjoyable.

The short story collection, "The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding and a Selection of Entrées",features both Poirot and Miss Marple.
7. According to the Vegetales song, who was "a sad little berry (who) lived by herself in a house in a tree"?

Answer: Madame Blueberry

Madame Blueberry is an anthropomorphic Vegetales character who lives by herself (if you don't count her butlers!); although rich, she is unable to find happiness or feel satisfied with her life.

She learns that money can't buy happiness when she sees two young friends demonstrating thankfulness in the face of less than affluent circumstances. Tragedy strikes and she finds herself homeless, but has learned the lesson of a thankful heart.
8. Strawberries and cream is the traditional fare served at what entertaining annual event?

Answer: The Wimbledon Championships

The tradition of strawberries and cream at Wimbledon started as long ago as 1877, and was further popularised by George V, who treasured them as a treat synonymous with summer, particularly enjoying eating them while watching the tennis.

"The Old Wives Tale" is a play by George Peel, first published in 1595, which features the following song, possibly one of the first references to the coupling of these two delectable foods:

"When as the rye reach to the chin,
And chopcherry, chopcherry, ripe within,
Strawberties swimming in the cream,
And schoolboys playing in the stream..."
9. In which movie does a man who loves split-pea soup decide it's time to settle down?

Answer: Soup of the Day

In a confusing plot, Brandon Craig finds himself caught in the toils of three women, each of whom manipulates him with threats: one to beat him up, one to commit suicide and one to ruin his career. None knows about the others. When inevitably they all meet to try Brandon's favourite soup, things get interesting.

The movie finds its origins in a series of 19 episodes, later released as a full-length film with additional footage not previously seen.
10. In the Dickens novel of the same name, Oliver Twist asks for more of what, when he says "Please, Sir, I want some more"?

Answer: Gruel

Gruel was a soupy porridge, made with oats, rice or other grain, depending on where it was made. Because of poverty, what might have been a thick, creamy meal was watered down to make it go further and make the most of the little food they had. The grains used to make the gruel were undoubtedly often insect-ridden, due to lack of proper storage.

Because it is easily digested, it's often recommended for invalids, though for added nutrition, milk rather than water is used to make it. Additives are sometimes used to flavour it in more affluent social groups.
