Tuesday Trivia

Trivial Tuesday: 12/7

It’s Tuesday night and we’re about to head out to the pub around the corner, so here’s a little something to keep you occupied until we’re posting again first thing in the morning.  Last night’s challenge was a scavenger hunt, and there were some great replies.

Tonight, and each Tuesday at 7:00 PM (our last slot of the day) we’ll be doing trivia! Wooo! Rest easy that we’re doing trivia only because I haven’t figured out a way to do commenter karaoke.  Give it time.

Here are tonight’s questions, leave your guesses in the comments and I’ll tell you if you’re right in the morning.  Try to avoid using a search engine or other outside sources for this one, go with your guts!
