Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Let's start with a decent insult. Which sketch would you find the following haranguing? "Shut your festering gob, you tit! Your type really makes me puke, you vacuous, toffee-nosed, malodorous, pervert!"
2. "And then some adenoidal typists from Birmingham with diarrhoea and flabby white legs and hairy bandy-legged wop waiters called Manuel, and then, once a week there's an excursion to the local Roman ruins where you can buy cherryade and melted ice cream and bleedin' Watney's Red Barrel, and then one night they take you to a local restaurant with local color and coloring and they show you there and you sit next to a party of people from Rhyl who keeps singing 'Torremolinos, Torremolinos', and complaining about the food, 'Oh! It's so greasy isn't it?" There's so much more of this classic rant but need I continue? Which Python plays this disgruntled traveller?
3. "He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp, or to have his eyes gouged out, and his elbows broken! To have his kneecaps split, and his body burned away, and his limbs all hacked and mangled.." Which not-so brave knight are the minstrels singing about?
4. In the movie 'Life of Brian,' a Centuwian found himself fighting wabid, wild animals for giggling at Pilate's fwiend from Wome, Biggus. When Pilate uttered Biggus's wife's name, all the Centuwian guards lost it and fell to the floor laughing, allowing Bwian to escape. What was Biggus's wife's name?
5. After winning the final edition of 'Spot the Braincell,' Mrs Scum was tempted by several prize offers, but elected to receive which one?
6. "Well, of course, this is just the sort of blinkered philistine pig-ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage. You sit there on your loathsome spotty behinds squeezing blackheads, not caring a tinker's cuss for the struggling artist. You excrement, you whining hypocritical toadies with your colour TV sets and your Tony Jacklin golf clubs and your bleeding Masonic secret handshakes." What breed of struggling artist fired off this verbal broadside?
7. "I am not a loony! Why should I be tied with the epithet loony merely because I have a pet halibut? I've heard that Sir Gerald Nabardo has a pet prawn called Simon and you wouldn't call him a loony; furthermore, Dawn Pailthorpe, the lady show-jumper, had a clam, called Stafford, after the late Chancellor, Allan Bullock has two pikes, both called Chris, and Marcel Proust had an haddock! So, if you're calling the author of 'A la recherche du temps perdu' a loony, I shall have to ask you to step outside!"
