Funny Answers given by School Quiz team

Recommended Posts

Our homeschool group participates in the Quiz Bowl run by the local TV station. We had our first game on Wednesday, and these were some of the answers they gave


In which war did the Rough Riders participate?

The Civil War


What 2 countries in South America have names that end on the letter 'y'?

Brazily and Chile


What is the 4th largest island that lies just off the east coast of Africa?



Given the first line state the book and author - "He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone eighty-four days now without taking a fish"

Moby Dick by Mark Twain.



And yes, in case you are wondering, we did win. This was a school in the country so we won't have an easy time, and so many laughs with our next opponents who are in the city.


The kids on the team we played against were nice though.

Cute, though in their defense, it can be difficult to think on their feet in the spotlight (been there, done that, back when I was a teen).


I suspect/hope many would have given better answers if they'd had time and weren't under quick pressure. (Maybe not, but I can hope...)


Congratulations on your win!!!
