trivia is always fun, and
a man’s gotta have his
facts straight, ya know.

Here’s how it works.

aI give you a question,
and you shout out
the answer if you know it.

Or you can peek at the
answer below it, in yellow,
then shout it out.

In other words,
I’m giving you the answers,
so everybody should get
an “A” on this exam.

Unless you’re color blind,
in which case, well,
tough toogies, I guess.

And don’t fuck it up,
cause it’s going on
your ‘permanent record’.

Or is that called a
‘permanent CD’ now?

Hellz a poppin’ –

you some cool musical links
