Short Arms but Deep Pockets Trivia Quiz


The title refers to one who refuses to shout a round of beers but for the mob in this quiz, that idea was a dream. Oh, how they too may have wished they looked like a T-Rex because the aftermaths of their nights on the tiles were not pretty.

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Comic strip character Andy Capp enjoys a brew at the local pub and usually comes home late, where he is confronted by his long-suffering wife. What is her name?

Answer: Flo

Poor Flo, in Andy Capp, this is what she has to put up with; a husband who doesn't have a job, has no motivation to get one, who cannot pay their rent yet, somehow, manages to find money for cigarettes and a drink at the pub. As stated, he is usually inebriated (with "usually" meaning seven days a week), he's overstayed his welcome at the pub, gotten into a fight and thrown in the cells or he's being fished out of one of the local canals by the local police.

Flo, which is short for Florence (she was named after Florence Nightingale), lives constantly on the poverty line and it is not unusual for her to see their furniture repossessed. More than once she has clobbered her husband with a rolling pin. This generally occurred in the early years of the strip but has since been curtailed. The shoe does tend to shift to the other foot some times, because Flo enjoys her bingo and she too has managed to come home late to find her husband waiting at the door, arms folded and, impatiently, tapping his foot.

"Andy Capp", created by Reg Smythe, has been appearing in the Daily Mirror since 1957.
2. Complete this iconic piece of advice from Homer Simpson to his son Bart; "Now, son, you don't want to drink beer. That's for daddies and kids with ___".

Answer: Fake IDs

When Matt Groening introduced the world to Homer Simpson back in 1987, one would have been hard pressed to find another leading protagonist in an animated series with such a fondness for beer as Homer. It would take the introduction of another Groening creation, Bender from "Futurama" in 1999, and Peter Griffin ("Family Guy" 1999) before Homer had any serious competition in that department.

As the balding, overweight patriarch of the Simpson family, Homer is lazy, at times incompetent, addicted to junk food and loves watching television.

However, despite becoming a cultural icon and one of the most influential characters on television, I certainly wouldn't be keen on taking his advice, such as the pearl of wisdom above, dished out to his son Bart in the 1997 episode "The Springfield Files".
3. In which 1978 film, starring John Belushi and Tom Hulce, does the Delta Tau Chi House throw an infamous toga party that leads to Dean Wormer revoking the fraternity's charter?

Answer: Animal House

At the hastily convened court at which Dean Wormer revokes the fraternity's charter, Doug Neidermeyer testifies that there were "individual acts of perversion so profound and disgusting that decorum prohibits us listing them here". But was it really that bad... so a keg got thrown through a window, some ladies coats got thrown on the floor, John Belushi's "Bluto" commits an act of heroism by smashing a folk singer's guitar and everyone has a great time dancing to Otis Day & the Knights' rendition of "Shout".

The most memorable scene during the course of the party was the late arrival of the grocery checkout cashier, Clorette DePasto (Sarah Holcomb), who immediately hooks up with Pinto (Tom Hulce), skulls a couple of beers because she has "a lot of catching up to do" and then passes out in the bedroom at the point where they (she and Pinto) were looking to take the relationship to the next step.

It's at this point that Pinto has an hilarious fight with his conscience and then, does the right thing, and deposits the girl home in a shopping trolley.
4. Which video game warrior, whose franchise bears his name and is a homage to action heroes such as John Wayne and Arnold Schwarzenegger, has been known to use beer to reduce damage to himself?

Answer: Duke Nukem

Duke first appeared in "Duke Nukem" (1992), a 2D platform game in which he defeats the evil Dr. Proton from taking over the world. Though he is not superhuman he manages to achieve incredible feats of strength and exploits of survival. He is a master of weaponry and is never seen without his Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses.

In "Duke Nukem Forever" (2001), a first-person shooter video game for Windows, OS X, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, he trades in his Portable Medkit for... cans of beer. The mind boggles here. One can and Duke is toasted.

His vision immediately blurs, sounds grow deeper and there is a slowing in his movements. However, the pay off is that it makes him tougher and it reduces damage to his person by up to 75%. Note: The other characters, though famous in their own right, do not have their names in the franchise title. Dante is from the "Devil May Care" franchise, Marcus Fenix is from "Gears of War" and Nathan Drake is from "Unchartered".
5. In the episode "Bad Beer" ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), one of the Summers' women turns to drink for solace, which one?

Answer: Buffy

Previously, on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", Buffy had cultivated a relationship with UC Sunnydale student Parker Abrams. They slept together and whilst Buffy felt it had solidified a bond, Parker only took it as physical gratification... the hound that he is! Buffy is devastated and turns up at a bar where Xander is working and proceeds to get drunk on "Black Frost" beer. However, the bar owner has placed a special ingredient into the beer and now Buffy and her drinking buddies are starting to turn into Neanderthals.

The episode "Bad Beer" is the fifth episode in the fourth season of the television show and it aired in 1999.
6. "God, I'd give anything for a drink. I'd give my goddamned soul for just a glass of beer", so says Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) in "The Shining". Does Jack get to have his beer?

Answer: No

Jack Torrance is hoping to kickstart a writing career, that is struggling to get off the ground, by accepting the job as the caretaker of the deserted Overlook Hotel. The solitude will do him wonders, or so he thinks. It turns out that the isolation is not good for Jack and he arrives at the conclusion that, perhaps, a beer will help. What that plea for a beer does though, is that it summons Lloyd, the ghostly bartender, operating in the hotel's Gold Room. Jack, however, doesn't order the beer, instead, he opts for the white man's burden... bourbon. Lloyd pours him a Jack Daniel. Now Lloyd, that was a big faux pas and we can understand why Jack may have flipped his lid. Jack Daniel have worked really hard to distance themselves from the title of bourbon and ensure that their designation is Tennessee whiskey.

It should come as no surprise that not long later Jack is chasing his son through a maze in the snow, armed with an axe. If only he'd stuck to beer.
7. Bobo T. is a beer drinking detective from DC Comics. What is unusual about Bobo?

Answer: He's a chimpanzee

Bobo first appeared in "Adventures of Rex the Wonder Dog #4", in 1952, just before the end of the "Golden Age" of comics. For decades he merely made cameo appearances but gained new traction when he made a prominent appearance in the six-part 2005 series "Day of Vengeance", which focused on DC's Spectre. Bobo is able to speak with humans and other animals, he is a member of Mensa, wears a deerstalker hat in the mould of Sherlock Holmes and he enjoys a beer far too much. Bobo also has a few issues. First up, being a chimpanzee, he doesn't have civil rights and he cannot act as a law person.

As a result, he has difficulty collecting on his invoices and it is not unusual that most people refuse to pay him. Bobo turns to beer and spends most of his time at the other-dimensional (and appropriately named) Oblivion Bar.
8. Which of the Avengers, in "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) drowns his sorrows in beer after half of the population of the universe had been wiped out?

Answer: Thor

In the previous film, "Avengers: Infinity War" (2018), Thor had the opportunity to destroy Thanos but attacked the heart instead of the head, giving Thanos precious moments to save himself and wipe out half the universe. In "Endgame", Thor, this time, does kill Thanos but realises that, despite this, he cannot bring back those that Thanos has killed. Move forward five years and we find Thor firmly planted in a couch, playing video games, eating junk food and drinking copious quantities of beer. In fact, he has become fat Thor.

This, however, is no accident. Thor loves beer. If you wind back the clock you will find numerous examples of the "God of Thunder" imbibing. In "Thor: The Dark World" (2013) he knocks back quite a few celebratory ales with his buddies "The Warriors Three" and in "Thor: Ragnarok" (2017) he's seen drinking the amber from a massive magical jug provided by Doctor Strange and I won't even mention the parties at Tony Stark's place.
9. Who is the sometime accountant who holds up the bar, constantly ordering beers in the television sitcom "Cheers"?

Answer: Norm Peterson

Played by George Wendt, Norm was originally set to make a single appearance, being Diane's (Shelley Long) first customer, and saying one word, "Beer". He became so popular that he became a regular and patrons began to yell his name out whenever he entered the bar. Someone would invariably ask him how he was to which he'd respond in a mocking manner which would segue into him ordering a beer;
WOODY: "How's it going, Mr. Peterson"?
NORM: "Poor".
WOODY: "I'm sorry to hear that".
NORM: "No, I mean pour".

Norm's daytime job was that of an accountant though he didn't seem to do a lot of that. He would eventually become a house painter before finding the holy grail... a beer taster for a brewery.

"Cheers" ran on NBC from September 30, 1982, to May 20, 1993, for a total of eleven seasons.
10. You may remember the Reese's Pieces, but do you remember the Coors, which lovable alien got hammered on banquet of Coors in 1982?

Answer: E.T. the Extra-terrestrial

Elliott is at school, about to dissect a frog. E.T. is at home with Harvey the dog. E.T. gets hungry and goes to the fridge. He spies the potato salad... pass. He spots the beer, Coors Banquet, no less. He cracks one open and downs it in one go and is "plastered". However, because of his strong psychic connection with Elliott, it is Elliott who also feels the brunt of this. Not satisfied with one can, E.T. goes back to the fridge and indulges again... and again... and... poor Elliott.

Coors moved very quickly to contain the likely backlash from this and turned a negative into a positive with a marketing campaign that featured E.T. standing behind a bar espousing "If you go beyond your limit, please don't drive". His glowing finger is then pointing at the words "Phone Home".
