This might be the first quiz where I already knew I'd probably be giving 5 globes after reading the first nine words of the instructions. Very funny intro to a kuality quiz.

Brings to mind one of my favourite '30 Rock' funny moments with Jenna's trio of famous friends: Charlie from 'Charlie Bit My Finger', the wrestler Mankind and the forgotten Kardashian sister Knob Kardashian.

Gosh, 'K' looks really weird now.

This quiz was great but it did bring to mind my favourite town in Poland ... 'Krapkowice'

Excellent decoys--totally fooled me. I think you have way too much on the timer, though. After I got all the ones I knew, I actually stepped away to make a quick phone call. I didn't realize I had left it going but when I came back I still had six minutes left.
Oct 9th, 2012 at 19:14 GMT
@druhutch: I originally had 50 korrect answers, and 35 dekoys in the kwiz, but (as kan be seen above) I took away some words that people would probably be kompletely klueless on. However, I didn't subtrakt the time. Thanks for noticing that.

Kwite klever, kudos.
Oct 10th, 2012 at 06:41 GMT
No clue how this quiz works. From the intro and notes, I expected my first sentence to look like, "No klue how this kwiz worcks." What am I looking for?
Oct 10th, 2012 at 19:44 GMT
@xeju: Out of the 50 choices, there are 30 words that are real, and there are 20 "words" that are fake. Your objective is to klick all the real words, while avoiding all fakes.

Really surprised to not see Karma

Is there a DICTIONARY source that includes all these words? I've checked three different online dictionaries and cannot find two of the "real" words. The two I can't find are "kibbla" and "keybugle" (the former I've been given "kibla" as a suggestion, while the latter simply doesn't appear--though a suggestion for a correct spelling is "cubicle"). (The three dictionaries I've checked are "Freedictionary," the "Cambridge Dictionary Online" and the "Oxford Dictionaries" site. I did check Merriam-Webster Online which shows a "key bugle"--as two words--but I have to upgrade to the Unabridged version to get the definition but "kibbla" doesn't even show up for that.)
And I checked the "source" that's listed, but I don't see how that qualifies as a source. All I saw was a message board promoting a quiz contest. (Maybe I have a different idea about what a source is?)
Dec 14th, 2012 at 05:47 GMT
A keybugle is a type of instrument, but as far as I can tell it's spelled as two words. Kibbla appears to be a variant of kibla which is a variant of kiblah which is a variant of qiblah which is the direction you face so that you're pointing toward the Kaaba while praying (fun with transliteration). So yeah, a bit kwestionable...

I'm gonna go ahead and pretend Kiltoff is a real word and has something to do with those Highland games they play in Scotland.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 07:40 GMT
Some of these are very sneaky. "Key book" is in some dictionaries but never as a single word. It refers to the cipher keys used in sending encrypted message like those from the Enigma Machine.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 12:30 GMT
Kiloacre is a real word.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 13:07 GMT
@jdreyfuss: well, you've just started a philosophical debate about what's a "real" word. In theory any prefix can be added to any unit, so 1 kiloacre = 1,000 acres = 400 hectares (approx.) = 1.56 square miles (approx.). You can also say that the distance New York - Chicago is 50 megainches and that would be technically correct. The problem is that people will immediately ask you how much is that in miles.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 14:02 GMT
Who Knew it would be this tricky?? I'm surprised "knew" wasn't a word.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 14:02 GMT
I got a bit distracted by kasted as it's only one different letter from being my name :-)
Dec 14th, 2012 at 14:53 GMT
I think some of the words were a little too easy... the distribution of scores seems to be way more compact than usual. Looks like it's almost impossible to get less than 18 right.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 15:14 GMT
I took this quiz because I thought Kyrgyzstan would be included.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 17:07 GMT
Dictionary? Nothing here says the words cannot be from any language or be proper nouns. Knudsen, for instance, would work. I figure Knotleg for a pirate, Kumart for a Middle Eastern discount store and korfo for a bland food derived from milk.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 17:52 GMT
@dancastro: I don't agree that kiloacre or megainches are technically correct. Mega- and kilo- are SI prefixes. But acre and inches are not a SI units.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 18:07 GMT
Look at the dropoff from kumquats to kamala in the stats.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 18:59 GMT
So, what's everybody kibbitzing about down here?
Dec 14th, 2012 at 19:49 GMT
Kobuki is a word, but its sort of Japanese. Kudzu is borrowed from Japanese, as is Kimono (no "s" ever!)
Dec 14th, 2012 at 19:57 GMT
Kimonos got me. I thought for sure that it was fake since there's no such thing as singular or plural nouns in Japanese.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 20:08 GMT
I'm presuming that Killjoy was a later-added one? Surely there's no way it would be bottom guessed otherwise?
Dec 14th, 2012 at 23:15 GMT
Response to NaGfH and Meltha: In the ENGLISH language, kimonos is the correct plural for kimono. Says this in 3 different dictionaries, including the Oxford dictionary.
Dec 15th, 2012 at 02:16 GMT
Surprised to see kibosh and killjoy so low!
Dec 15th, 2012 at 06:16 GMT
@NaGfH - that's Kabuki, with an A.
Dec 16th, 2012 at 02:24 GMT
After awhile, I swear NONE of them look real.
Dec 16th, 2012 at 03:14 GMT
Kolcheck sounds like something from A Clockwork Orange.
Dec 16th, 2012 at 18:42 GMT
Kibosh is one of my favorite words... and kugel is DEFINITELY one of my favorite foods! Dismayed to see both at the bottom.
Dec 26th, 2012 at 15:42 GMT
Based on some of the earlier comments, I think that there were several words that have been replaced recently, which probably exchanges some of the low scores.
Mar 8th, 2013 at 22:13 GMT
Some of these I couldn't tell you what they meant, it was sort of a gut feeling that it was a word. But then again, I also clicked on knothing, so what do I know?
