POP QUIZ: POP CULTURE BY THE NUMBERS
(If you’re checking out a Trivialitycheck.com ‘Pop Quiz’ for the first time: Every Wednesday (or most, anyway) I post ten trivia questions, usually on some kind of theme. If you respond with answers or guesses, I’ll tell you your score. Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of this post as the subject line. The full set of answers is posted the following week, along with congratulations to the high scorer(s). No googling!)
This is some straight-ahead, by the numbers trivia.
Some of the best works in pop culture have titles which are alpha-numeric strings, but not words. Bo Derek in “10” comes to mind. There’s also… um … nope, still thinking about Bo Derek… er…
Anyway, each of the clues below should yield an answer that is written in just such a fashion. For example, if I gave the clue “KENNEDY’S BOAT”, you’re answer should be “PT-109”, which is numbers and letters, but no words.
Any answer may be all numbers or all letters (but not words), or a mixture, and may or may not have punctuation marks.
So, which one of these questions has your number?
