Today’s FTW: Mental Floss quizzes

Yabba-Dabba-Doo, y’all! It’s Friday, and I am sneaking in an easy post before my holiday weekend begins. Today, I expect that many of y’all are also ready to relax a bit. So, in order to help you along, here are some fun and funny links for you to click.

I subscribe to Mental Floss magazine, which is a really enjoyable read. In case you’re not familiar with it, Mental Floss is sort of like an episode of Jeopardy!, but with way more humor, and without the fabulous cash prizes and Alex Trebek. There are articles and features containing trivia, little-known information and lists which always inform and entertain me.

The Mental Floss website has a section I love: interactive quizzes on some off-beat topics. You can get a bit stuck on this section, since there are loads and loads of these quizzes to distract you from more important business. But, since it’s Friday and we’re all ready to be distracted, here’s a list of some of my favorite quizzes from Mental Floss. Warning – despite the light-hearted nature of these quizzes, they’re not all as easy as you may think, so prepare to be humbled. Good luck!

    • Please do! I didn’t do so well on a few of these, but on some I did a decent job and I managed to get 100% on the Pixar one and the Cartman/Ted Nugent one, so I’m at least happy about those results! 🙂

      • Well apparently I’m proficient in cults (100%), furniture(70%), girl scout cookies (78%) and Obama emails (64%), primaries (60%) WTF(60%). I totally guessed 70 % of the 60/70’s food (60%). I barely got over 50% with Guns and Roses (56% to be exact). I guess I need to watch a little more Japanese baseball(42%) and knowing more about European rappers (44%) :@)

      • You got 100% on the cults? I got something like 30% on that. I thought I’d do a lot better on it. Respect! 🙂

  1. WTF? 60%
    Organic Food Brand or Cult? 82%…The Fertile Hand doesn’t sound like a brand I want to eat.
    Guns & Roses? 100% SWEET.
    Japanese Sports teams? 33% Go Grampus Dophins!
    Obama or My Aunt? 73%
    Cartman or Ted Nugent? 82%
    Food Fads: 56%
