Thank you Jack Sparrow for the strumpet delivery. "Or maybe the reason you practice 3 times a day is because you've already found one, and are incapable of wooing said strumpet." - Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. And people want to be bothered by a subtle reference to the Special Effects department in "The Lion King?" There were way more that went over kids heads.

I was going to argue the selection for 'bogus' but the further I got into it the worse it became. Most of these are familiar if not used daily, but a lot of your answers are straight out of left field

sorry - "strumpet" is a noun. Some of the others were in use when i was a kid and did not mean what this quiz claimed.
