Isn’t quizzo the greatest? Whether you are a New Deck purist who spells it with just one ‘z’, or prefer to win “adult” toys at a round of Kinky Quizzo, you can’t help but to love the thrill of being the only person at your table who knows who made that statue of William Penn on top of City Hall‡.
To celebrate my love of quizzo (which is one of the reasons #whyilovephilly), I give you a Philly-focused trivia question every Tuesday. Answers after the jump.
This week’s trivia question: In high school, my friends and I were obsessed with the Simpsons. While removed from the prime years (Seasons 3-10, if you ask me), they were still producing some of the most hilarious television on, well… TV. So, for this week’s Tuesday trivia, a Simpson’s challenge – In Season 11’s Episode “E-I-E-I DOH!”, the Philadelphia Flyers are thanked during the credits to THIS movie. (If this were actually quizzo, I’d accept anything close.)
(Scroll down for the answer – I’ve been asked to do this to prevent accidental cheating.)
Answer: The Poke of Zorro. In this “veritable history lesson”, Zorro kills the Three Musketeers, defeats the man in the iron mask, and takes on a handful of ninjas, all before being crowned the new King of England by the old King of England. This movie inspires Homer to go on a duel challenging spree, AND HILARITY ENSUES!
