great quiz. You should include Ronald "Prez" Pryzbylewski
Jul 20th, 2010 at 21:32 GMT
Stinkum would have been a good one to include as well.

Cool quiz. Reckon you should make us guess in order, but otherwise "spot on".
Oct 1st, 2010 at 08:45 GMT
Lot of great nicknames on the show. In addition to Stinkum and Prez, you've got White Mike, Bird, and Fat Face Rick if you want to add some. Probably more I can't think of.

Probably the best show ever

Good show, but I never did manage to learn any names. There were so many characters and most ended up being disposable.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 20:56 GMT
@dappabandit: if anyone can guess snot boogie from his given name, they deserve to ace this quiz no matter what
Oct 7th, 2010 at 21:04 GMT
I thought Cheese was Calvin Wagstaff...
Oct 7th, 2010 at 21:06 GMT
I am severely disappointed that there was no bonus answer for Fuzzy Dunlop
Oct 7th, 2010 at 21:14 GMT
I will give any quiz about The Wire five sporcles.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 21:18 GMT
Missing Stinkum and Bird.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 21:53 GMT
Did they ever give The Greek's real name?
Oct 7th, 2010 at 22:06 GMT
Oct 7th, 2010 at 22:13 GMT
@DonnyB - no. And, of course, he's not even Greek.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 22:21 GMT
@drone: Omar Isaiah Betts. I win. Although I already got 22 out of 22, so I guess I don't win anything.
Oct 8th, 2010 at 04:13 GMT
Awesome. Both that it's the Wire, and that it's a good idea for a quiz.
Oct 13th, 2010 at 03:26 GMT
If you knew that Snot Boogie would take the money then why even let him play! It's America, man.
Oct 21st, 2010 at 15:57 GMT
I was hoping for bushy top or mcnutty
Nov 20th, 2010 at 12:16 GMT
Best TV show ever, didn't expect it to have so many quizes here, since most people don't know about it. 22/22 btw.
Dec 14th, 2010 at 11:36 GMT
Nice quiz, but it would have been better if you'd had the pictures of each character, because even though I've seen all episodes at least twice, I didn't recognize them by their "real" names.
Dec 27th, 2010 at 18:02 GMT
First think I tried was Snot Boogie. Great quiz!
Feb 10th, 2011 at 02:28 GMT
You gotta keep the Devil, way down in the hole
Feb 21st, 2011 at 22:47 GMT
good quiz but you forgot Butchie man! I think he deserves to be on here.
Feb 13th, 2012 at 20:30 GMT
The game's out there, and it's play or get played. That simple.
