1 March 2010 2 Comments

The Rules:

1. You have until Friday at midnight to submit your answers to me via e-mail at quiz2010@whatwouldthembido.com. The best way to go about this is to copy and paste the quiz in the email. Please DO NOT post answers in the comments section.

2. I will post the answers and winners of this year’s challenge on Monday. This is the final round!

3. This year the prize structure will be as follows:

First Place – $50 gift card

Second Place – $25 gift card

Third Place – $10 gift card

4. If you use the internet you kind of suck. Most of the questions will be Google-proof, so press your luck trying to find answers on the internet. If its obvious that you used the internet I will disqualify you because that’s you playing with my money!

No, I didn’t name it week three, because it’s actually March. But you know what to do.

1. Name the group pictured below. (10 points)
