Re: The Friday [BBC news] Quiz

Ouch - I obviously haven't been paying attention this week.

Normally I come away with a 6 or 7, but this week a measly 3.

Re: The Friday [BBC news] Quiz

I have never heard of "Can" and I lived for 12 years in Germany...

My mate's girl friend's employer, a lawyer, got "Trio" out of the Stuttgart prison to perform at a concert in Munich. Not many people know that either!

That was one of the ones I got right, along with the portrait above the PM, and the banned leggings question.

Re: The Friday [BBC news] Quiz

5/7 - no idea on the prime minster portrait nor the German band but got the rest. Need to spend less time trawling viral news stories, I think...

Re: The Friday [BBC news] Quiz

I got the airline one wrong but got the others right. I hadn't heard of the band but remembered seeing their name in relation to Glastonbury.

Re: The Friday [BBC news] Quiz

I got 6/7 but had to guess at many of them.

I would have got all 7 right if I'd selected "Can" as the band, but had I not read this thread first I'd've selected "Kraftwerk" so that's what I did just to not make you all feel bad with my 7/7.

I guessed at the painting, the reason some crappy town was famous, and where that Ronaldo-having-a-stroke sculpture was unveiled.
