All Present And Correct

The challenge that I posed on the post Question Time was to answer five general knowledge questions without the help of the internet.

Just to recap: The winner of the first series of American Idol was Kelly Clarkson; the creator of Mr Bean is Rowan Atkinson; there are four US Presidents on Mount Rushmore; Batman lives in Gotham City; and the poem The Charge of The Light Brigade was written about the Crimean War.

Six people got a perfect score: Sandi McBride, Akelamalu, Brian in Oxford, Leslie, Kimberly and Ibeati. This also means that Sandi, Akelamalu, Brian and Leslie have perfect scores in both quizzes I've posted so far.

The wittiest answers came from Bradley who said the poem was written about "the Civil War led by General Electric"; and from Lime who said: "In which war did The Charge of the Light Brigade occur? One that was apparently very dark"; as well as Siddharth Khandelwal, who (very dangerously for a newlywed) said he didn't know who won American Idol but that his wife would know the answer and "she will be able to tell you all the participants in alphabetical order."

I did not participate because I was protesting the Gotham City question. Batman is an obvious answer, but he's hardly the only one who lives in Gotham. ;)

Hmm...Mac always says I'm to smart for my own good. I'm apparently not smart enough to know just what the devil it means, though. Looking forward to the next quiz...
