Genius? Moi?

Well, it wasn't me that said it.

But I DID get 26/33 right on THIS without cheating.

I bet She Weevil could beat me.

How about you? What's your score?

Dammit. I only got 19!

Cheryl said...

Zilla!
You were gone, what, ten minutes?

And you still scored genius! :-D

Ms Mac said...

Gahh! I got 25 but I still think that 5 tits on a fish is the correct answer!

doris said...

I'm only somewhat intelligent with 9 but I couldn't be bovvered to make the effort. For some reason it didn't like

1000 yachts in a marina

I think they are wrong! Just because they don't lead the champagne lifestyle that I do!

Did anyone get 23 P of C in the HB - driving me nuts.

Joint effort with Mrs Soldier and we managed 31.

bart said...

i gave up after 90 minutes, with 29 found (phew, it got me sweating)...

Writer Mom said...

I just took a test that said I'm one point short of becoming a U.S. citizen. I'm not sure if I'm up to this...

Cheryl said...

Soldier - human body.
Take yer genes off!

ROFL

Steve said...

i got 29 too but am totally stuck on 9 P in S A cos it wont have 9 penguins in South Atlantic

Writer Mom said...

I'm going over to hang out with Doris so we can pick nits out of each other's hair.
Or maybe I'll try again.

She Weevil said...

Sorry only managed 28 - nearly din't get any typing in all the numbers longhand. It's too early in the morning!

jane said...

I got 18. Looks like I'm the dunce of the group. lol
It was fun :)

doris said...

Ha-ha Writer Mom! I'm the one at the back making the grunting noises ;-)

Jane - You got 18... that's twice as many as me! Far be it for me to stand up proudly and say that I am the dunce of the group but.... I did get way less! :-)

zilla said...

OH!!!!! 23 pints of coffee in the human body! See -- time of day is a huge factor in scoring well on this test.

1000 yentas in a menorah and 9 pimples in a surly adolescent.

Don't worry WriterMom, you can have a pair of my chromosomes. I'm only using a few of them myself anyway.

ella m. said...

19....I finally figured out what 52 c in a p (wj) was.....
I would've used a c word in place of that damnable p one.

Rain said...

I struggled to get to the base of intelligence, then I took the US citizen test at karlababble and nearly got it!

Writer Mom said...

...at least I'm boinking a genius. That says something. Right?
(Sniff...thanks for the 'somes, Z. I hope I get your eyes. Faulty tear ducts and all.)
Doris--'Grunt grunt grunt, scratch, grunty grunt, sniffety sniff.'
Figure THAT out, all you smarty pantses.

Badaunt said...

31. I'm a genius!

Why can't I get #30 and 31? The others popped into my head, and those two have me TOTALLY STUMPED.

Cheryl said...

Badaunt- one of them's geography and the other is another very British sport (or Australian).

Badaunt said...

Oh my god I just got #30, and I didn't even know that. Wild guessing WORKS!

Now... 6 B to an O in C... 6 B to an O in C... 6 B to an O in C...

(Officer in command? Orgasm in Canada? Help!)

Cheryl said...

LOL
Are you stumped?

Cheryl said...

Hey hows this for 'doh'

See the url? you can change the 1 to a 2...... more evil!

Badaunt said...

Got it! Got it! Got it!


Now I feel better.

Badaunt said...

You cow. I'll be up all night.

Steve said...

anybody got the answer to 9p in sa? cos its driving me bloody crackers. Gibber wibble

Badaunt said...

Steve: Geography.

Cheryl: WHY ISN'T 101 D 101 DALMATIONS?

(Quiz #2 is driving me nuts, but fortunately The Man came home with a job for me, so I'm taking breaks. (From the job or from the quiz I'm not sure.) Got half so far.)

Cheryl said...

Badaunt
It is.
Its just dalmatians, no o
I made that error too.
I am stuck on:
1, 6, 14, 17-21, 24.
So I'm not as clever as yesterday, apparently.
Any ideas?

Cheryl said...

tut I got 14 but it wont accept 17 sluts in a house party.

Writermom - "Grunt grunt grunt, scratch, grunty grunt, sniffety sniff"?

I get it now (oo oo eeeh ah to you) - but for a minute there I thought you were likening our Doris to a pot bellied pig!
ROFL!!!!

They do say intelligence is inversely proportional to common sense. Well no. Not they. I say it - its my excuse.

Badaunt said...

Shit. I can't spell.

#1 depends on whether you count one of them as one or two, and whether Australia is an island or one of these.

#14 is ... er... naughty things.

#17 is something you've been through a few times. It takes that long each time, and you don't get much sleep for a while afterwards.

#21 It has BK as well, but they're not counting those. Hmm... maybe that doesn't work as a hint. Music. (Dead giveaway, but never mind.)

Can't help with the others. I'm still struggling. Grunt grunt argh. This is all your fault.

Library Lady said...

I've gotten 19 so far. You'd think with all the reference work I've done all these years I'd be getting some of these, but I keep looking at the screen and going "huh"?

Thanks alot, Cheryl. My brain isn't supposed to have to WORK on Fridays...........

Ally said...

My brain has melted and I'm going to the pub!

zilla said...

They do say intelligence is inversely proportional to common sense. Well no. Not they. I say it - its my excuse.

Bet my husband aces this test, but he still can't change a bloody lightbulb.

Library Lady said...

I came home and the Man and I went through it together.

I got up to 28, the Man got the 5 I missed and (drumroll please!):

We got all 33!!!!

The Man claims we were inspired by the raw garlic he is having with his Friday night dinner, BTW. Somehow I doubt it, though the smell DOES tend to make me hungry...

And now onto part 2!

Library Lady said...

Cheryl, if you're still interested #8 in part 2 refers to computers. We're still puzzling out 14, 19 and 24. The Man is really into this!
