2. From: ‘P’ Logos

adhairDidn’t accept “Pizza Hat”.

3. From: Figure Out The Lyrics: TV Theme VII

wolfsbroWhy do we always Sporcle? I guess we’ll never know. It’s like a kind of torture to see what you don’t know.

4. From: 16 Famous Rodents

Limerick_ManI once saw a mouse on the screen
Not Mickey or Jerry, I mean
When I say “on TV”
I mean literally
I should keep my apartment more clean

5. From: ‘C’ States

mimsy137There are lots of reasons I might be ashamed of myself. Blanking on the name of a state that starts with the letter “C” is definitely NOT one of them.

packmanwiscyI’ve never noticed how red those eyes are on the Broncos logo. Must have changed it when Colorado legalized weed.

2. From: Jokes in Reverse

armadillokingThe bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve time travelers in here.” A time traveler walks into a bar

mommyrocks2005Liar. None of that’s in my pocket. I’m pretty broke right now.

4. From: Pick-a-Stan

dancastroAny Sporcler worth of the name will agree that Kazakhstan is bigger, but Kyrgyzstan is greater.

5. From: Ticket to Ride Board

mrbinkey04I just drove from Minneapolis to Duluth yesterday. I’m not sure why it took me so long, since they are clearly right next to each other.

naqwerty3You know you’ve been on a Sporcle a long time if you don’t even think of entering Kyrgyzstan for “Most Missed” Countries of Asia because who would ever miss Kyrgyzstan on Sporcle?!

2. From: Franchise by Pez Dispenser Set

ArtieArmstrongVery disappointed this quiz didn’t accept “pezidents” for #17.

3. From: Are You Colorblind?

klb75A while back I had the idea of opening a shop with a sign that says “Color Blindness Diagnosis: $10″, but having the sign written using colored dots like the numbers in this quiz. When someone walks in and asks “Am I colorblind?”, I’d just say “No. That’ll be $10″.

4. From: Sporcle’s Most Forgotten Answers

NoisewaterSo the states no one can spell… And Nebraska

5. From: African Country A-Z Blitz

NY_MOBIn a blitz game, it sure would help if I could resist typing countries like “Burkina Faso” and “Ethiopia”, when “Benin” and “Egypt” will do.
