Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)
We had another fun time on the quiz this week, and showed that we perhaps know more about Nutella than we probably should. Unfortunately, no one hit the 1000 club this week. It's getting kind of lonely in there and the cushions need airing out, so perhaps the next quiz will be a bit easier. On the quiz itself, ThunderChild takes the top spot with 930, followed by Gordon Bennettin second with 923 and wxboy in third with 917. Oliver Twisted made fourth with 915, and There I Was slides into the top five with 908.
The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over a shutdown in the world's largest Nutella factory. Only 28% of quiztakers knew that 600,000 jars per day, roughly one-quarter of the world's supply, comes from a single factory in Normandy in northern France. Other European facilities are in Poland, Turkey, Germany, and Italy, but none in any of the countries usually associated with high-quality chocolate. Probably because those countries have laws against diluting cocoa with something as ho-hum as hazelnuts.
The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was over what monument the people of Taneytown, MD were considering in a bid to attract more tourists. 77% of quiztakers knew that someone had the brilliant idea of a large monument to John Wilkes Booth, The question is, do you really want to attract the kind of tourists that want to see a statue of the guy who killed Lincoln? I hear they're bad tippers and don't separate their recycling. And they tend to wear white even after Labor Day.
The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over Fat Tuesday. Only 43% of quiztakers knew that this observance marks the *end* of Carnival, the celebrations and excessive consumption of all the stuff people won't be consuming during Lent. Ash Wednesday, the day after Fat Tuesday, marks the beginning of the 40 days of Lent. Most of those who do not observe Carnival or Lent in the traditional Christian manner might better know Fat Tuesday by its French name - Mardi Gras.
The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over what '80s/'90s band complained that KISS was "stealing" their stage sets from their own farewell tour in 2015. 85% of quiztakers knew that it was Tommy Lee and Nikki Six of Mötley Crüe who felt that they were the first to think of putting their bass player on a crane. News Flash, guys, what do you think David Gillmour was standing on when he did "Comfortably Numb" from on top of the Wall in the 1980 concerts? Then again, Gilmour was a guitarist, not a bass player, so way to innovate, Nikki Six.
If you missed the quiz, you can catch up on it here. Congratulations to the winners, and we'll be doing it all again this week.
