Quirky Quiz Answers

Answers to Minsters 2020 quiz



I am pleased to report that Peterborough Minster Rotary Club’s Quirky Quiz will have raised £400 for us to spend on charities that we support. I received 74 completed forms back and nine of them were all correct. The winner, Joan Tiplady from Peterborough, was selected randomly over the telephone by our President Redouane Abou-Hilal. I can report that no social interaction occurred in this process, in these Corona 19 affected strange times.

I was impressed by the number of forms I received back, around 18% of the forms sold. The majority of these forms were close to being all correct.

There were only 9 forms that had all the answers correct and correctly spelled with the right number of letters in each name.

Clue 16 Popeye’s squeeze caused the most problems with Olive Oyl being spelled as Oil. Clue 31 Hurry, thick slices of meat led some to think it was Fast Food, which was creative but not quite right. I was looking for Chop Chop.

Clue 26 answer Meghan Markle and Clue 47 Brigitte Bardot also caused a few problems in the spelling department.

Many thanks to all entrants who exercised their brains and for your intelligent responses that made marking the quiz an enjoyable task. Many thanks to Colin Moore who did all the printing free of charge and my fellow Rotarians and friends who sold the quizzes.
