The 2nd Nerd Trivia Contest

By Wyatt Earp | April 26, 2006

The first ever SYLG Nerd Trivia Contest was less than successful as far as participation was concerned. However, that didn’t stop Stella Piccolo from running away with the title. It was the question about The Tick that put her over the top. Fear not, aspiring nerds, the winner of this installment of SYLGNT will receive an honest-to-goodness prize: a genuine piece of SYLG memorabilia. (Obviously, the winner will have to send me a mailing address – which will be kept confidential.)

The first person to e-mail me () with the most correct answers by Friday, April 28, 2006 will be able to shout, “Victory is mine!Please don’t post the answers in the comments section, so as to not tip off your competitors. Good luck!

    Dude, I would love to participate, but I can’t answer but a few of those questions. I have never even seen smallville, or battlestar galactica. The one time I tried to watch office space, I was with a young lady, and, well, I wasn’t really paying attention. That’s Trivial Pursuit type stuff.

    But I guess the good news is since I can’t answer the questions it means I’m not a nerd. Whew :) !!!

    Cripes! I thought the first ten were too easy, which is why I added the last five. So far, only Randal and Ty have entered. Slackers.

    I know the Beavis and Butthead one. Does that win me anything?

    I know the Smallville one and I could probably find some others but I don’t want to be a nerd! Plus, I have pictures to look at!

    ok, c’mon:

    #2 is a pretty easy.
    #6 is just way too easy.
    #7: If you don’t know #7, you should leave, now.
    #8. Old school easy.

    That’s 4 out of 10 that most semi-intelligent people should get.

    I am utterly bewildered by almost all of the questions this time.

    Still haven’t had my coffee though (I start commenting from the top down).
