Dateline London-Prime Minister of England, who is officially the treasurer of something or other and lives at 10 Downing Street, has become the latest target of Wyle E. Coyote, the desert dog whose arch enemy, the Road Runner, has been taken into the witness protection program by President George W. Bush, son of former President George H. W. Bush. As of 2000 hours this evening, 8pm, it has been reported that the Prime Minister is safe and staying with long time friend Muhammed Ali, who lit the torch at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.

Sharon said...

1.It's either the Prime Minister or Sherlock Holmes (I know it's not Mr. Holmes)
2. the Road Runner Beep Beep
3. the Presidents Bush
4. 8:00 pm
5. Don't know.

Fun quiz! Now I have to go google the 1996 Olympics.

Katney said...

The Prime M inister of England lives at #10 Downing Street. I don't remember the name of the current PM, but it is not Tony Blair.

Wylie Coyote's nemesis is Roadrunner--beep-beep.

Do you mean Geroge W. Bush and George Herbert Walker Bush? or do you mean before them? If so that would have been the Roosevelts--cousins Teddy and Franklin.

2000 hours is 8 p.m.

Some athlete. I remember Rafer Johnson did one sometime and Muhammed Ali another--maybe it was him.

zoeyjane said...

alright, i'll stop stalking and play:

a) the royal family
b) road runner
c) bush(es) george sr and w
d) 8pm
e) at the risk of being politically incorrect, i'm thinking some sort of special/challenged person?

Sandi McBride said...

10 Downing St...Britain's Prime Minister
Wyle Coyote is a perpetual motion machine after the Road Runner
The father and son team of George and George W (Bush) were the last two Presidents to share the same last (and first)names
and 2000 translates to 8 pm
and Ali lit the torch at the 96 Olympics...wow, that was fun!

Fletch said...

I thought 'Bush & Bush' was too easy, so went back to check the phrasing of the question! None the wiser ...

Here are my submissions, but I will 'fess-up to querying the 'Presidents' question at Wikipedia. I guess that DISQUALIFIES me ...!?!

1. Official residence of the PM of UK
2. Road Runner - (love that bird!)
3. Andrew Johnson, 17th President of the United States, 1865-1869 & Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States, 1963-1969.
('Dubya' is the current incumbent, so I don't think he can be considered as one of the LAST two.)
4. 8:00 PM
5. Muhammad Ali

Max said...

Dragonstar said...

Gordon Brown (PM) lives in No. 10.

Wyle E. Coyote's enemy (BeepBeep!) is the Roadrunner.

The last two American Presidents to share the same name are George W and his dad - unless you want the much earlier Roosevelts)

2000 is 8pm

The 1996 Atlanta Olympics? You mean there was an Atlanta Olympics? Can't answer that one - we were on our island at that time, with no TV (that came much later and in severely rationed doses due to lack of electricity) and very infrequent visits to the nearest (mainland!) shop.

There, said I like quizzes, but I prefer to be able to answer them!
