A Hump Day Quiz for You

Happy Hump Day

Okay, I'll admit it. I was hunting online for some good funnies for you today and got sidetracked watching videos of dogs "singing" along with various tunes. Please don't ask me why.  But since I'm feeling a little brain dead now, I'm going to offer you a chance to exercise your little gray cells.

Here's a hump day quiz!

Don't worry, the answers are are the bottom of this post but give it your best try before peeking.

Q1. If you throw a red stone into the blue sea what it will become?
Q2. What is the main reason for divorce?
Q3. If you had three apples and four oranges in one hand and four apples and three oranges in other hand, what would you have?

What? Are you all twisted up already?

 Keep going. You can do it. 

Q4. River Ravi flows in which state?
Q5. What can you never eat for breakfast?
Q6. How can you lift an elephant with one hand?
Q7. What looks like half an apple?

 Oh, come on. They're not that hard.

 Only three to go.

Q8. If it took eight men ten hours to build a wall, how long would it take four men to build it?
Q9. How can a man go eight days without sleeping ?
Q10. How can you drop a raw egg onto a concrete floor without cracking it?

 Good grief. They're dropping like flies.

 Okay. Okay. You can relax. Here are the answers.

A1. Wet
A2. Marriage
A3. Very large hands
A4. Liquid
A5. Lunch & dinner
A6. You will never find an elephant that has one hand.
A7. The other half
A8. No time at all, the wall is already built.
A9. No problem, he sleeps at night.
A10. Any way you want, concrete floors are very hard to crack.

How did you do? (Be honest now.)

I'm doing something a little different for your "aw" today. I'm feeling a little nostalgic and a bit sad after our first Thanksgiving without my dad so I've been spending time looking at old photos. This is my dad and my brother playing a little one on one football. This may only work for me but the happiness on my brother's face seemed like a perfect "aw".

Did it work for you?

Are you there? Over the hump and sailing toward a wonderful weekend?
Excellent! My work here is done.

Oh, and don't forget DL Hammons'...

You'll want to get in on this one.

That's it. Have a great week/weekend. See you next Wednesday.

Thought for Today:

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.


Stacy McKitrick said...

I got a score of 8.

Okay, so I gave 2 points for each correct answer! :)

Happy Hump Day!

Emily R. King said...

I'm confused! I think the stone turns blue?

Awww to the photo. So sweet!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I got four of them right, although two more were very close.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Those dogs are OUT.
Half right! I feel good...

LD Masterson said...

Stacy - Well, I never said how many points per answer.

Emily - Only one way to be sure...beach road trip!

Diane - Dang. Now I wish I'd asked everyone to tell me which they got right. The curiosity is killing me.

Alex - Only dogs and small children can sleep like that. Don't you envy them?

Murees Dupé said...

Your brother does look happy. I'm sorry you had to be without your Dad on Thanksgiving. I know I still miss my dad all the time. About the quiz...I didn't get any right. You stumped me really good. Thank you for always making me smile.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Yeah, that AW picture definitely did it for me, too. I love old family pictures. Matter of fact, I'm sometimes tempted to buy some of the wonderful old pictures I find at flea markets and antique shops, even though I don't know a single person in them. I know. Weird.

I've also got a weird smart-ass puzzle mind, too. Got all of 'em right. Yay, me!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I made 8/10. Aww for your happy brother. Good one about the tomato.

LD Masterson said...

Murees - You were probably looking for more difficult answers. And you're welcome.

Susan F. S. - I inherited all my dad's photos, dating back to 1925. It's a trip going through them. And yay quizmaster!

Susan G/K - Good score. Thanks for the aw.

Jemi Fraser said...

Those are great - as a teacher, I've seen/heard most of them, but the elephant one was new. Love it! :)

That's a great 'awww' - family photos are the best

Clarissa Draper said...

I thought the picture of your dad and your brother was so sweet! Loved the quiz too!

mshatch said...

That is a total aw pic. That's the sort of pic my mom would put on the mantle or china cabinet.

LD Masterson said...

Jemi - Yeah, I get a lot of them from my grandkids.

Clarissa - Thanks. I was hoping people would like it.

mshatch - Maybe I should frame it. I got so many great ones from my dad.

SittieCates said...

I love the photos and the trivia. And, yes, it was great that you provided the answers at the end. :-)

New follower. :-)

Lexa Cain said...

I missed 6 and 10 - but I really enjoyed all of them. Clever and funny. And the pics were a plus, I especially liked the upside down red-colored dog on the couch. Thanks for the smiles! :)

Jennifer Lane said...

Good quiz! The only one I got was lunch. ;-)

Donna K. Weaver said...

Big awww. Love the doggy pics too!

Al Diaz said...

I got like six right. That picture of your dad is really nice and those dogs made me want to go to bed, hahaha. I wish I could sleep like that. Dragon Hugs!

Tammy Theriault said...

hey man, where's the video? I wanna see what sidetracked you! haha!! love riddles, but I suck at them.

Nicki Elson said...

I got number 3 ... and that's about it. The answers all cracked me up.

That is most definitley an Aw-worthy photo. You can just see how much that kid is awed by his dad.

Tyrean Martinson said...

I didn't score well . . .

But, I did love the picture! :)

LD Masterson said...

SittieCates - Welcome. Thanks so much for following me. I'll be over to visit you shortly. And I'm glad yo enjoyed the post.

Lexa - Hey, you only missed two - that's a good score!

Jennifer - Lol. You must have been hungry when you were reading this.

Donna - Thanks. I'm glad you liked them.

Father Dragon - There are days I think I could sleep like that. I'd just never me able to get up again.

Tammy - There where bunches. I just kept getting pulled from one to another.

Nicki - You know I had to scroll up and check which one was number three. Hey, that was a tough one. Thanks for the awe. My brother and I were both close to our dad. He was a really special dad.

Tyrean - Luckily, there are no penalties for low scores. You still get to have the laughs and the aw.

Mike Keyton said...

Great thought for the day. And I've copied and pasted your teasers for our New Year Quiz. Many thanks! said...

Your thought for the day makes me wise but lacking knowledge. It's a fruit, really? And you can't eat a pizza dinner for breakfast? I'm so confused.

Have a nice weekend, LD.

LD Masterson said...

Mike - Great. I love contributing to your New Years.

Robyn - It really is a fruit. And you can eat pizza for breakfast (doesn't everyone), you just can't call it dinner. Trust me on this. I'm old, I must know something.

Heather Holden said...

Managed to answer three of them correctly! I'm surprised, to be honest. I'm usually worse at these things, haha.

And nostalgic pictures are always aw-worthy. What a sweet pic!

LD Masterson said...

Heather - Hey, three's not bad. And thanks for the "aw".

To anyone else that comes by to comment - would you please tell me if Blogger is doing the "not a robot" thing here. I have this blog set to not use that but right now Blogger is asking me to prove I'm me. Thanks.
