I'm on the scrounge again!
This time I want a few questions for a QI round where the obvious answer is wrong.
EG - Who had a UK number one hit with D.I.V.O.R.C.E.?
Answer - Billy Connolly
Most people will put Tammy Wynette.

Any ideas?

Q. Who in 1963 was killed in what is generally regarded as the worlds first live televised murder?

A. Lee Harvey Oswald, NOT JFK - that was filmed by a bystander

Will think on..........

Inventors are a really good source of these e.g. who invented the telephone and the light bulb? Bell and Edison? No, Meucci and Swan.
A few random other ones from various sources - many are pretty easy:
What colour is an aircraft's black box?
What animal is the Koala Bear most closely related to?
What colour was Napoleon's white horse?
How long did the Hundred Years War last?
How much dirt is there in a hole 2 metres by 2 metres by 2 metres deep?
Where would you find the round window and the oval window
In what month is the majority of the Oktoberfest beer festival
What are camel hair brushes made from?
In the original book what was Cinderella's slipper made of?
How long did the 30 years war last?

115 or 116 years depending on definition
None, it's a hole
In the ear, not on Play School
Squirrel fur
Squirrel fur again
30 years of course

I knew Badger would see this! :)

The best way to catch squirrels is to have a one-night stand with a hollow tree. :roll:

Some time ago (Think March or Oct '06) I ran a quiz night where there was a complete round entitled "These might be tricky". I thought i'd posted it in quiz swaps but can't find it.

Will have a look at home for it for you. Mind you, I nearly got lynched by the audience!

Can't find that quiz anywhere! :twisted:

One more though:

Q. 50 years ago last August, George Harrison joined Paul McCartney & John Lennon in which band?

A. The Quarrymen

Careful with inventor questions. Although it's widely thought that John Logie Baird invented television there are plenty of other claimants...


There are fairly strong claims that a bloke near Dundee was making powered flights before the Wright Brothers.

If you ask "who invented photography" you could receive a whole streak of "correct" answers.

So watch your wording!
