Sorting Blitz: Musicians: The Sporcle Featured Quiz of the Week

The-Blue-Album

We think all our featured quizzes are great, but once a week we find a quiz published within the last 7 days that went the extra mile.

This week’s quiz is Sorting Blitz: Musicians by Sporcle User nopurplesky.

What’s the Quiz About?

For this quiz, all you have to do is sort musicians into male artist, female artist, and band. That should be easy, right? Wrong! These are all one-word musicians, so there’s no last name to help you out. Since this is a sorting blitz, you have to click them in the given pattern, in this case, it’s male musician, band, female musician, band. You only get to see the pattern once, so it’s up to you to remember what you need to click next. Oh, and this is both a minefield and a blitz, so click quickly but carefully.

What is Whacking Day All About?

wacking-dayWhen we choose which holidays to create badges for, we usually decide on those that are either really well-known, or just make us laugh. Whacking Day is definitely the latter, and might be the most obscure holiday we’ve chosen so far.

Whacking Day is based on an early episode of The Simpsons, where the town celebrates May 10th by driving snakes to the center of town in order to whack them with sticks. In the episode, Bart and Lisa decide (rightly!) that the holiday is barbaric, and instead attempt to lure the snakes to safety with the help of singer Barry White. In the end, everyone learns a valuable lesson about tolerance (probably).

Here at Sporcle, Simpsons quotes are a perfectly cromulent occurrence. Once we discovered the date officially fell on May 10th, we absolutely had to create the badge. Once our mysterious badge artist Skylar drew it, it immediately became one of our favorite badges. All you have do to earn it is play the Whacking Day HymnThe Simpsons Minefield, and Venomous or Not? on May 10th.

Of course, this year Whacking Day perfectly coincides with Mother’s Day. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate motherhood than by making obscure Simpsons references. Also, you should call your mom.
