Trivia Tuesday: 3/15 Mixed Bag

I decided I was in the mood for some good, old-fashioned trivia tonight.  No themes, no quirks, just a mixed-bag of random bits and pieces scavenged from the dusty corners of my mind.  Come on and dive right in, the trivia’s fine.

1.  Finish the quote:  “If we shadows have offended, think but this and all is mended…”  The next two lines are sufficient.  Half credit will be given for identifying playwright, play and character.

2.  Which country is the largest producer of peanuts in the world?

3.  What does “fragolina” mean?

4.  You may have noticed Bea Arthur up in our new banner, which one of her co-stars is a well known animal health advocate?

5.  Name the artist who wrote the song “Nothing Compares 2 U.”

6.  What is the “lava” in a lava lamp?

7.  What are the little mushroom guys in Super Mario Bros called?

8.  What is the better known name for “La Fheile Padraig”?

9.  In Warehouse 13, which artifact almost killed Myka’s father?

10.  Who is this lovely lady?

  1. 1 is Stanley Tucci! In that one where he runs around shirtless the whole time! (I kid, I kid. Actually, I once played Helena in a middle school production of Midsommer. I had to literally throw myself at Demetrius’s feet.)

    7 are toads, not goombas!!!

    9 is on my Netflix queue. LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU.

  2. 1.) Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Puck: That you have but slumber’d here
    While these visions did appear.
    And this weak and idle theme,
    No more yielding but a dream,
    Gentles, do not reprehend:
    if you pardon, we will mend:
    And, as I am an honest Puck,
    If we have unearned luck
    Now to ‘scape the serpent’s tongue,
    We will make amends ere long;
    Else the Puck a liar call;
    So, good night unto you all.
    Give me your hands, if we be friends,
    And Robin shall restore amends.

    3.) Fragolina is Italian for strawberry
    4.) I think Betty White has done animal advocacy?
    5.) Prince
    6.)wax?

    8.) St. Patrick’s Day?

    10.) Angela Lansbury?
