Quiz Questions 21st July 2017

Quiz time – after a week off.

Can’t really explain why there were no quiz questions last week – I simply forgot.

[Q1.] From which 1980 movie is this a classic scene and who wrote the original novel on which the movie was based?

[Q2.] Lord Louis Mountbatten was the last Viceroy of which country?

[Q3.] Which 2013 song has the following lyrics?

I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I’m not proud of my address, in the torn up town
No post code envy

But every song’s like gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin’ in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room
We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don’t care, we ain’t caught up in your love affair

[Q7.] Which is larger the red or grey kangaroo?

Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.
