Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which of the following pairs of colours would you mix together to get pink?

Answer: Red and white

Pink is a secondary colour, which means that it can be made by mixing two other colours together - in this case, red and white. Red is a primary colour, which means that it cannot be made in this way. Mixing red and blue would make purple, while red and yellow make orange, and blue and yellow make green.
2. What is this bird?

Answer: Pink-footed goose

In a tactical attempt to disguise its identity, the specimen of Anser brachyrhynchus in the picture is hiding its distinctively-coloured feet in some grass. It breeds in countries such as Greenland and Iceland, migrating during the winter to the warmer climes of northwest Europe, including the UK.
3. The character of Mr Pink in the 1992 movie "Reservoir Dogs" was played by which actor, seen here in a 2009 photograph?

Answer: Steve Buscemi

All of the options play colour-named gang members in Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs", but Steve Buscemi is Mr Pink. Tim Roth is Mr Orange, Harvey Keitel is Mr White, and Michael Madsen is Mr Blonde. For those who haven't seen the film, they are all nicknames adopted by the participants in a failed diamond robbery.
4. People wear a pink ribbon badge to show their support for treatment of which of the following medical conditions?

Answer: Breast cancer

In 1992, breast cancer charities across the world agreed to adopt the pink ribbon as a symbol of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The use of a crossed ribbon badge as a symbol of awareness of a medical condition is now so common that most popular colours have been adopted by more than one campaigning organisation. AIDS uses a red ribbon, traumatic brain injury a green ribbon, and Cystic Fibrosis a purple one.
5. The song "Lily the Pink" was the UK Christmas number one single in December 1968. It was performed by which group?

Answer: The Scaffold

"The Scaffold" can best be described as a 1960s and 70s novelty act from Liverpool, whose performances mixed comedy, music and poetry. The three members were Mike McGear (whose brother, Paul McCartney, also had some musical success), Roger McGough (a popular poet) and John Gorman.

Their light-hearted and catchy song "Lily the Pink" reached the dizzy heights of Number 1 in the UK singles chart in December 1968, including the prestigious "Christmas Number One" slot.
6. The elephant in this picture is a muddy brown colour, but (according to a traditional saying) what is your condition if you are "seeing pink elephants"?

Answer: You are drunk

The origin of the phrase "seeing pink elephants" for an alcohol-fuelled hallucination is unclear, although it is generally agreed that the first recorded use of the phrase is by the writer Jack London, in his 1913 book "John Barleycorn". The concept was also used by Walt Disney in the "pink elephants on parade" sequence in the 1941 film "Dumbo", in which Dumbo gets drunk after accidentally drinking champagne out of a bucket.
7. Occupations that are stereotypically held by women are often described as "pink collar jobs". True or false?

Answer: True

The term "pink collar" job is often used to refer to occupations that are stereotypically filled by women, such as childcare, primary school teaching, secretarial and nursing. The phrase is a more recent parallel to the descriptors "white collar" and "blue collar" jobs, for office and manual work respectively.

The phrase is also occasionally used to refer to jobs that are claimed to be popular with the homosexual community.
8. In which of the following rivers would you be most likely to see a Pink River Dolphin?

Answer: Amazon

Also known as the Amazon River Dolphin, the species Inia geoffrensis is a freshwater dolphin, which also occurs in certain other South American rivers such as the Orinoco. Scientists are not certain why it displays such a distinctive pink colouration, although it is usually explained by the high number of blood vessels near the surface of the skin.
9. Pink's War is the name given to a 1925 RAF military campaign against tribesmen in South Waziristan. Of which modern country is South Waziristan a part?

Answer: Pakistan

South Waziristan is in north-west Pakistan, on the border with Afghanistan. In 1925, the Royal Air Force had only been in existence for six years, and "Pink's War" was an early example of the use of aerial bombardment against an elusive enemy. It takes its name from Wing Commander Richard Pink, who was in charge of the operation.
10. Alecia Beth Moore, who performs as a singer under the stage name Pink, had an acting role in which 2007 horror film?

Answer: Catacombs

The film "Catacombs" is set in the famous Paris catacombs, a huge network of underground passages excavated as a burial place in the eighteenth century. In the film, Pink plays Carolyn, the sister of Victoria (Shannyn Sossamon). The basic plot involves Victoria getting lost in the catacombs after an illegal rave party, at the same time as being hunted by a mysterious killer.

This routine slasher movie seems like an odd career choice for Pink, whose musical career has been generally successful.
