after week 6


Ready for Quiz #7?

“Ain’t No Thang But a Chicken Wang!”


Quiz Rules/Format
(Same as last year, feel free to skip to the quiz if you know the rules already)

Your Task: Name the mystery Artist, ideally with as few clues as possible.

Correctly guess the artist on the first clue? 500 points.

After scrolling down to the second clue? 400 points.

Still don’t know after the fifth clue? 0 points, but a crisp high-five for participating.

I’ll use google translate to put the correct answer at the bottom in Arabic (if you read Arabic, that’s fantastic, but no cheating by reading ahead!) and you can translate it back to the language of your choice to confirm your answer.

In the comments, please enter your POINTS earned (not the artist name) and I’ll keep track of the running totals in a spreadsheet.

In addition to eternal bragging rights, the winner at the end of the year may even get something as prestigious as a digital certificate.

Here goes!

Verbalize the Positive

This group puts on a great show – my wonderful wife & I had the privilege of seeing them in Ottawa a couple of years ago, very entertaining!

  1. 300. I’m assuming there’ll be a few low marks this week.

  2. Harrison permalink

    100 please.

  3. Wow 300 and well I never

  4. Though they are not at all my disposable cup of tea, I was taken to a Melbourne concert by an ex-brother-in-law. The reason I succumbed was the support act: The Thorns (feat. Matthew Sweet), however the whole concert was very enjoyable. Just goes to show, eh?

  5. 300 for me this week.

  6. A low-grade 200. All out of cluck this week.

  7. 500. Yee haw! Wouldn’t have got it on the place/year but I remember that documentary coming out.

  8. 400 for me please. I’m a big fan of their courage.

  9. 300 for me. And I like them, so I’m surprised I couldn’t get it off the first 2 clues.

  10. 500. Fantastic band. Great movie. Great choice for a quiz!

  11. jprobichaud permalink

    300. It wasn’t any one of the clues but a combination of the three. I remembered the name of the doc but it took the other two clues to remind me who it was about. Have never seen the film or them perform like, and really, have never listened to their tunes. Theirs is an interesting story nonetheless.

  12. I’ll take a 300 for today.

  13. 500! 200 points was my favourite clue this week.

  14. 500 watched this doc a few years ago with the Boss(Sue). Chuck Klosterman in his Sex Drugs and Coca Puffs book described this act as the female VH and as corny as it sounds it made perfect sense!

    • Klosterman? VH comparisons? Perfect score?! Talk about many of my favourite things, Deke!

      • right in the mix in the standing Geoff! I’m getting nervous every Sunday morning when I open Reader and see your Sunday Quiz haha

      • Your streak continues, Deke!
        Hope you & Sue are having a nice anniversary too!

      • Thanks Geoff. We are enjoying the day. My parents stopped by and tomorrow its my Dads 80th so we are doing the party at the house here. Drop by if your in the neighborhood!

      • Happy 80th to your dad too – and Family Day, not a bad weekend for things to celebrate!

      • That is true.

  15. Ovidiu Boar permalink

    300 on this one.

  16. 500 each for me and Mika.

  17. Zack permalink

    500. I loved that movie.
