Ready for Quiz #10?

Get your damn hands up! ♪

.

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!

  3. 500, although he’s a little older than I was expecting.

  4. Harrison permalink

    200 please, my good sir

  5. 500 each for me and Mika.

  6. 200 please.

  7. 200 please. I can’t even blame it on TV/movie references this week!

  8. I had an idea of two artists at 500 and felt it was one of them on 400, but wasn’t confirmed until 300. I think that means I get a 400 on this one.

  9. Thought I’d get in early this week! 500 for me, please!

  10. 300 damn it! That Math pic messed me up haha

  11. 200 today.

  12. jprobichaud permalink

    200. Don’t know this one from a hole in the wall.

    • Fantastic work, Amrita!

      • I do have 99 problems, but knowing this artist’s real name isn’t one! Belated Happy Women’s Day to your family, Geoff!

      • And the same to you, Amrita – you’re right on time in our time zone for celebrating the day too, we’ve still got 6+ hours of Women’s Day to go!

  13. 200. I thought I had it ar 500 with Puff Daddy.

  14. Zack permalink

    500 thanks to my strange ability to remember rappers’ birth names.

  15. Lucky 500 point guess from a shortlist of four I was thinking of. The prouder/entrepreneur clue helped a lot.

  16. 200, please!
