Hi, Sporcle. This is just a disclaimer (skip if uninterested). *NOTHING* on this quiz is meant to be partisan--not in my selection of presidents, not in the quotes I chose from those presidents. This might be too much to ask, but I'd like it we could refrain from political discourse in the comments section; this is just meant to be a fun game. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy the quiz!

Great quiz! I didn't realize that the static quality would help out so much. I also didn't realize we had recordings of some of those older guys. Well done!
Jul 24th, 2011 at 23:50 GMT
Nice quiz dolebanana. I didn't realize the Swedish Chef was based on Benjamin Harrison!

Clinton tripped me up for a second. I don't think I've ever heard him (or any SNL comedian imitating him) shout, or even speak above that sort of low drawl.
Jul 25th, 2011 at 11:10 GMT
Might not be the worst idea to do this in a "wrong answers turn red" format - otherwise it's easy enough to get a sense of the era based on the audio quality and just type names till one pops up.
Jul 25th, 2011 at 13:09 GMT
@mneh: Actually, I had seriously considered that idea. Instead, I reduced the time so that there's only enough time for one full play through. If you guys think that wrong answer is still better or if there's some other solution, I'm all ears. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

@dolebanana- Beautifully done! I appreciate too that you've used Soundcloud. I've found it to be much easier for game play. As for the wrong answer format, I prefer being able to make a second or third guess and you also might run into problems with fitting all the wrong presidents into the space allotted for Sporcle answers. Great work- 5/5 and nominated!

Wilson sounds practically British.
Jul 25th, 2011 at 20:43 GMT
I'm glad that the quality of sound recording has improved since the Harrison Administration.
Jul 25th, 2011 at 22:43 GMT
I never imagined any of the earlier presidents to sound like that
Jul 25th, 2011 at 23:10 GMT
I always imagined that Teddy Roosevelt sounded more like a badass

You got to hand it to Benjamin Harrison--not too many modern politicians could give a speech while competing in the Kentucky Derby...
Jul 26th, 2011 at 06:27 GMT
The fact that Roosevelt doesn't sound like a badass only serves to make him even more of one. I've always been greatly amused by the fact that he had the Mid-Atlantic falsetto thing going for him.
Jul 26th, 2011 at 16:31 GMT
I really enjoyed the quiz. My only criticism is that from the clips included it's pretty easy to guess who it is based on historical info and/or sound quality rather than the actual voice. I think that's why 36% are getting all the answers. I did have time to make multiple guesses on the 3-4 that I didn't know immediately (the older ones). I'd love it if you did a sequel with other historical figures. 5 orbs.
Jul 26th, 2011 at 18:20 GMT
I got all the presidents during whose terms I've lived and two others. I missed the six that I've never heard. (I didn't even know that sound recordings had been made of some. )

How do over 10% of takers not recognize Obama's voice?
Jul 28th, 2011 at 16:34 GMT
Thats the best dubya quote that they could come up with? I personally think that human beings and fish can coexist peacefully...

Truman's story is glorious. Teddy's diction is indeed a little surprising the first time you hear it, but to me suggests a man perfectly capably of killing you, but also of discussing events over tea.
Jul 30th, 2011 at 20:57 GMT
Strange. I thought Taft would've sounded fatter.
Aug 2nd, 2011 at 19:33 GMT
I would love to try this with Presidential nominees. It would be a bit tougher, to say the least.
Aug 5th, 2011 at 16:14 GMT
Reagan and Truman had funny stories.
Sep 4th, 2011 at 23:32 GMT
I like this quiz a lot. Would love to see a similar one for British prime ministers.
Sep 5th, 2011 at 03:21 GMT
Because I'm sure it bugs everyone else as much as it did me, here's what Benny Harrison is saying: "As president of the United States, I was present at the first Pan-American congress in Washington D.C. I believe that with God's help, our two countries shall continue to live side-by-side in peace and prosperity. . . "

This quiz is testament to my shocking lack of knowledge of US history. I apologise.
