OK Who let @Cleoriff loose with these questions?? joy

 

Is this the result of too many voddies in Virtual Lounge last night celebrating 7 years on the Community?

I know it is "White Room Quiz - The Revenge" - but it ain`t "burn Mi-Amigo`s little grey cells" joy

 

At first glance, there are 5/6 questions which I`m fairly confident I know the answers; but that said, there are some which I`ve got no idea and am gonna have to make wild guesses when the time comes... Thankfully I have got time to contemplate and have a good think - and as I promised I will not use any reference book, nor search google, wiki, youtube or internet sites...

 

Good luck to all those who are joining in...

 

Brilliant quiz with great questions. Thanks @Cleoriff

Thanks @Cleoriff 

That doesn`t make it any better... In fact, it makes it worse as the questions were set up in the cold light of day... joy

That sounds like the voice of confidence @MI5 - far more than I have at this stage...
