We are the Champions...Or not
I like to consider myself a Pop Culture guru. Me and my sister took the Entertainment Weekly Pop Culture Quiz and did pretty good. There is now a VH1 World Series of Pop Culture Competiton where the winning prize is $250,000. Just for answering a few questions about The Simpons, The Princess Bride and who was the first Rap artist to have a number one album? I say count me in!

I'd like to compete, but I know I'll never make it to the show, but I love Pop culture nonetheless and think I'd be able to make it fairly far in the game. I have two Pop Culture quizzes if you'd like to try your own hand at pop culture knowledge:

pop culture quiz 1
pop culture quiz 2

If you take one let me know how you did. But even if you don't, do you consider yourself pop culture-ly talented? Hmmm,Do you know who stole Kimberly's baby on Melrose Place?

1.What's the name of the beer Homer can't do without?
2.Run DMC sang about which brand of shoe?
3.What did Buffy's headstone read?
4.What movie had this tagline "His whole life was a million to one shot" ?
5.In Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, what do the girls (Mira Sorvino, Lisa Kudrow) claim to have invented at their high school reunion?
6.What is the name of Tom Skerritt and Sigourney Weaver's deep-space mining ship in 1979's Alien?
7.How many Nightmare on Elm Street movies are there?
8.What is the name of the fictional television pilot that Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) has filmed in Pulp Fiction?
9.In Minority Report, the genetically altered humans who can foresee crimes are called?
10.Listening to Chicago's ''Cell Block Tango,'' what are the six keywords repeatedly sung by the merry murderesses?
11.In Dirty Dancing, what is Baby's real name?
12.What were the three simple rules for taking care of a Mogwai in 1984's Gremlins?
13.This quote is from what movie "Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly?"
14.In Gladiator, what is Russell Crowe's character's full name?
15.In Fatal Attraction what does Glenn Close boil in a pot on Michael Douglass' stove?
16.In the movie Heathers, what was the name of the one Heather not named Heather?
17.Name all the member of the rock band Duran Duran.

Of course I'm not asking, but anyone that answers all of these correctly I'll do a Blog Feature of your blog. (I'll post the answers in my next post)
