Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. It's not Chuck Norris, it's the god Horus. Which society worshiped the Falcon god Horus?

Answer: Egyptian

Horus was a major deity in Ancient Egypt, and was the subject of several forms and traditions. Also known as the Falcon God, he was often depicted as a man with a falcon's head. Usually identified as the son of Osiris and Isis, in another tradition, he was the son of Nut and Geb. Among his traditions he was seen as a god of the sun, of wisdom, and of war.
2. It's not Chuck Norris, it's a slow loris. What the heck is a slow loris?

Answer: a nocturnal primate of Southeast Asia with a round head and large eyes

Slow lorises are tree-dwelling primates distantly related to Madagascar's lemurs. Although small, generally under two pounds, they have a very painful bite, which includes a toxin mixed with their saliva. The toxin is released from the fur on their arms and by licking their arms and depositing the toxic saliva on their young, adults can "park" the offspring in relative safety when the adult obtains food elsewhere.
3. It's not Chuck Norris, it's the Black Forest. Where must one go to enjoy traveling through the Black Forest?

Answer: Germany's Schwarzwald

The Black Forest is well known for fairytales, chocolate cakes, and cuckoo clocks. Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, also known as Black Forest gâteau, consists of several layers of chocolate cake with whipped cream and cherries between each layer. Chuck Norris probably does not consume lots of that for dessert.
4. It's not Chuck Norris, it's ankylosaurus. What characteristics would one find if he were to see a living ankylosaurus?

Answer: spiked armored back and massive club on its tail

Ankylosaurus was a large armored dinosaur whose bones are primarily found today in North America. Although a complete skeleton has been unfound, remains include armor consisting of osteoderms, or heavy bone plates that were embedded in the animal's skin. Today armadillos and crocodiles also feature osteoderms in their hides.
5. It's not Chuck Norris, it's Nine Man Morris. Whatever is Nine Man Morris?

Answer: an elimination board game

Originating in the Roman Empire, Nine Man Morris has several other names, such as Nine Men's Morris, Mill, Merrills, Ninepenny Marl, and Cowboy Checkers. The board consists of three concentric (for lack of a better term) squares connected by a line on each side of the squares. Play consists of each player's alternately placing checkers at various intersections in an attempt to connect three in a row, whereupon the player can remove an opponent's checker from the board.
6. It's not Chuck Norris, it's the Bosporus. From which cosmopolitan European (and Asian) city can one relax and watch the wide variety of traffic on the Bosporus?

Answer: Istanbul

The Bosporus is a narrow strait that connects the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara, which in turn is connected to the Mediterranean Sea by the Dardanelles. Lying on both sides of this waterway (Bosporus, Sea of Marmara, Dardanelles) is the nation of Turkey.

The waterway also separates Europe, to the west, from Asia, to the east. Occupying both shores of the Bosporus is the city of Istanbul, formerly known as Constantinople and, before that, Byzantium.
7. It's not Chuck Norris, it's a cat named Morris. What cat food brand was Morris a tv spokesman for?

Answer: 9Lives

Morris the Cat was an orange tabby tomcat and has been played by three different cats, all rescues. The original Morris was rescued from an animal shelter in a suburb of Chicago in 1968. He is also listed as the author of three books on cat care. He was also named Animal Star of the Year by US Magazine in 1983.
8. It's not Chuck Norris, it's Chuck Barris. Which amateur talent contest that he produced and hosted on NBC achieved cult status, although it only ran live for two years, from 1976 to 1978?

Answer: The Gong Show

The program also ran in syndication through 1980 and then in 1988-9. Contestants performed for a panel of three judges, each of whom had a gong they could end the performance with. Wikipedia lists 90 celebrity judges who had served on the panel, from Mary Allen to Jo Ann Worley, and including such notables as Pearl Bailey, Milton Berle, Dr. Joyce Brothers, Wolfman Jack, Peter Lawford, David Letterman, Tony Randall, Joan Rivers, and Mamie Van Doren.
9. It's not Chuck Norris, it's Natasha and Boris. These villains, commonly seen in the "Rocky and Bullwinkle Show," were inept spies from Pottsylvania. What was Boris' last name?

Answer: Badenov

Boris Badenov was a take-off on the name of Sixteenth Century Russian Czar Boris Godunov, who was the last effective ruler of that dynasty. Natasha was Natasha Fatale, and she and Boris took their orders from Pottsylvania's ruler, known as Fearless Leader. Boris and Natasha's schemes were regularly undone by the heroics of Rocky the Flying Squirrel and Bullwinkle Moose.
10. It's not Chuck Norris, it's a children's chorus. To what country would one have to travel to hear the Bad Tölz Boys' Chorus in concert?

Answer: Germany

Bad Tölz is a town in southern Bavaria, known for its baths ("Bad" is German for bath) and a world famous boys' choir known in German as the Tölzer Knabenchor. The choir was founded in 1956, but since 1970 it has been based in Munich, the Bavarian capital.

The choir's repertoire covers music from medieval to modern, including folk music, church music, popular music, and opera. Austrian Herbert von Karajan, one of Europe's leading conductors until his death in 1989, called the Tölzer Knabenchor "one of the best choirs in the world."
