POP QUIZ: RED IN THE FACE
(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!)
The colour red is closely associated with Valentine’s Day. It is also the theme of this week’s Triviality Check. Once again, big thanks go to Todd J, who sent this quiz in for us all to enjoy. Todd did the Christmas themed quiz a couple of months ago… he’s our little holiday elf. Thanks Todd! If you’ve got a quiz you’d like to share, or even just some ideas for one, drop me a line, we can work on it together.
