Paws Trivia

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Maddie here. Since I had to see the vet today, Carol said I could play on her blog.  Of course, I'm going with dog trivia although Carol says someday I have to give cats equal time.  Hmph.  I'll have to think about it.

I'll come back on Thursday to post the answers.  Until then, viva Pupperoni!

1) What breed of dog played the title character in the 1966 movie "The Ugly Dachshund"?

2) What breed of dog starred as 'Flash' in "The Dukes of Hazard" TV series?

3) Jill the dog in "As Good As It Gets" was what breed?

4) What was the name of the German Shepherd in the movie "K-9"? 

5) What was Red the Labradoodle's character name in "Get Smart" from 1965-1966? [and you really know your trivia if you know how Red's character was written out of the series]

Trifling With Trivia: Authors & Books

Saturday, September 11, 2010

I'm in a trivia mood. I usually post questions on Facebook after playing trivia at Duffy's on Wednesday nights.  However, after a great and relaxing chapter meeting and lunch with fellow writers, I thought a few author-book questions would top off a perfect day.  I'll post the answers on Thursday night. :) Carol

1) What American novel was the first to sell over one million copies?

2) What words did Lewis Carroll combine to come up with the term "chortle" in Through a Looking-Glass?

3) What was the title of Mac West's 1959 autobiography?

4) What popular children's book was written by Ian Fleming, creator of British secret agent James Bond?

5) By what pseudonym is writer Frederick Dannay Manfred Bennington Lee better known?
6) Where did mystery writer Agatha Christie acquire her extensive knowledge of poisons?
7) J. R. Ward writes contemporary romance under what pseudonym?
8) Who said a historical romance is the only kind of book where chastity really counts?
