Funny/subversive quiz for Burn's Night - help, please!

Discussion in 'Personal' started by Kinsa, Jan 18, 2012.

  1. I have been asked to provide a quiz about all or any things Scottish for a Burn's Night dinner party to provide 'hilarity' between courses - no pressure then! Have come up with a few questions but am struggling without Wikipedia! Does anyone have any suitable questions I could pinch - the sillier the better! Many thanks in advance.
  2. In the poem "Little Mo" what flits across Mo's ****?
  3. My wife's a Scot - I'll ask her ....

    She says to try out these words - what do they mean.

    • glaikit
    • blether
    • fankle
    • teuchter
  4. Ah, a Derek and Clive fan!

  6. I think your question will create the required hilarity! Answer please - or will you make me Google it??
  7. Ha ha! Glad you are feeling better!
  8. Oh little Mo , I love you so...
    especially in your nighty.
    When the moonlit flits ..across your **** .
    Oh, Jesus Christ almighty.

    One of his lesser known works. :¬))

    How about 'Scottish or not Scottish'? List well-known people with Scottish-sounding names like Rod Stewart, Jackie Stewart, George Burns etc and ask the audience if they were born in Scotland or not.

    You can access the cached copy of wiki.
  14. The Duke of Edinburgh ?
  15. Coffeekid and Magic Surf Bus good suggestions, thank you!

    In Jackspeak (Royal Naval slang) what do you call an annoying little Scotsman?

    (Both my grandfathers had Scottish names before I'm accused of racism!)
  16. Probably, but as I don't know what a cached copy is, let alone how to access it, I think I'll have to wait until tomorrow!
  17. The audience will probably realise that anyone with a title must be English - or at least not Scottish in the case of esteemed Royals!
  18. Not sure what you'll make of this idea Kinsa, but how about getting your audience to guess/provide the definitions of classic Scottish slang words or Scots dialect (guddle, muckle etc.)? Or guess the meaning of some classic Glasgow rhyming slang?
    Struggling with links at the moment, but Google should throw up some helpful suggestions.
