I would like to assure the esteemed judging panel (that would be you, dollface) that no search engines were used during the completion of this quiz.
Yes, my music-geek brain really is that ridiculous; yes, I took the quiz while pretending to do work at the office; and yes, I totally just called you dollface.
Please send any and all prizing to my pocket-sized place in Toronto. (Liz knows where I live). Sending your brilliant self over for a visit would be most appreciated; however, being the bona fide 100% word-nerd that I am, original poetry would also do nicely. Write me a quatrain?
1. The first name of my all-time favorite funny name (and our first ever post); and a Simon and Garfunkel ode to structural engineering.

5. Rob’s first post – about a baseball player (surprise!) whose name inspired a legendary 1970 song about funny-named baseball players; and a British band from the 70′s who sang about the summertime and whose name was inspired by a T.S. Eliot poem.

7. A vivacious and quotable actress from the early-to-mid 1900′s whose dying words were “Codeine… bourbon…”; and an Alanis Morissette song about how she couldn’t help falling… it’s all your fault!

10. Another of Arto’s posts about obscure historical figures – this one about an American diplomat, politician and tobacco trader who was married to the also-well-named Louise Barbe Vanderclooster; and a U2 song about Bono’s inability to live in any circumstance.
