As mentioned it the Advance Notice [ see here ], this week`s White Room Quiz is slightly different.

To try and slightly lighten the mood in these dark and doomy days, this week`s White Room Quiz will be a themed one - with the usual EIGHT questions - but each question, in some way, connected to the theme of "fun", "comedy", and "humour".

The questions have been posted earlier than usual to give everyone as long as possible to think about the answers.

 

PLEASE NOTE AMENDED TIMES BELOW FOR SENDING YOUR PM'S WITH ANSWERS

 

The White Room Quiz is open to all members

I hope our regular quizzers

Any answer received after 23.59 [11.59pm] on Thursday 09 April will be declared void.

No googling, wiki, youtube search for answers.

 

As this is a "Fun" themed week, there is no QI-style question but a couple of questions are "tricky".

 

The White Room Thursday Quizz is open to all members.

I hope new members, who have recently joined the Community, and members who have not taken part before, will join the "regulars" with this week`s quiz. 

 

Please feel free to post any comments on the questions - but not the answers - on this thread.

If you have any questions about the quiz, please ask and I will reply here.

 

Thank you everyone for your interest and for making the quiz so popular.

I hope everyone enjoys this week`s White Room Thursday Quiz.
