The big Brokeback Thanksgiving Quiz 2007 !***Answers posted***
« on: November 19, 2007, 05:35:06 am »
Howdy,

another Monday morning rolling around in Europe - but no TOTW will be presented here today.

It's Thanksgiving week :D !

And in honor of one of the most important holidays for our American residents as well as in remembrance of Ennis and Jack, we will have a big and fun quiz running the whole week. All questions will be related more or less closely to the three Thanksgiving scenes from the story and movie.

Katherine and I have come up with some pretty tough questions, but don't feel intimidated - the questions are equally tough for everyone and we also have lots of easier questions.

The rules:

1) It's all for fun!  :)

2) Permitted auxiliary tools are your memory, the short story, DVD, movie scripts, the stripedwall site (www.stripedwall.com), general internet searches and the whole BetterMost site - except this very thread. Additionally, for two questions you might get a bit creative either with the answer itself or with your sources...  ;D

3) Not permitted: cheating. And yes, it IS cheating to scroll down and read the answers other participants have already given  ;D.

4) You can take as much time as you like (well, almost. There is a deadline, see below). You can try to answer the questions from the top of your head and skip what you don't know, or take a guess, or you can take your time and do a little research with the above mentioned auxiliary tools. Also, you can change some of your answers by using the modify button. In case you will have an enlightenment over night, it's also OK to change answers the next day(s).


Each correct answer is worth one point, the one with the most points will be our winner.

Answers will be accepted till Monday morning, Nov, 26th, 9am CET (that's 3am EST).

Please copy&paste the quiz form in the next post and put your answers directly under the respective questions. Different color would be nice, but is not required.

Please keep this thread "answers only". This way it will be much easier for us to go through your answers next week. I'll open an extra thread for comments, questions, etc. about the quiz.


There will be lots of precious, funny, desirable, yummy, cute, virtual prizes.  :D


 :) Good luck and have fun!  :)

Do potatoes count as a vegetable?
 
6) What reason did the NFL give for refusing to grant the filmmakers rights to use game footage in the Childress Thanksgiving scene?

The angry rub bracelet from Ennis's grip in the story and ... hm ... the only thing I can think of is that darkened line that pregnant women get from their belly buttons on down, so I guess I'll have to go with that.  :)

It's not gay enough?

16) Who is KC Moriarity?
