My quiz about Britain
« on: September 23, 2011, 12:04:50 AM »
Hi all - I've written a rotten quiz about Britain, so I was thinking people here might like to give it a try. It takes around ten minutes and so far to the best of my knowledge nobody (nobody!) has got 100% on it. Any takers?

Happy Fridays,

Got 100%, but then I am English so really ought to. Couple of extra ones for bonus points:
1) What is Ecky Thump?
2) How should you react if somebody says you have a "cute *bleep*"?
3) How is "England" pronounced at a football match by the crowd>

Well any way you stack it really, it's complimentary.
