A-Z Trivia: Jacking Around!

Read about the Challenge Here!


The Encyclopedia,

Social Media, 

& Me!!



It's challenge day ten! Can I manage to post twenty-six times in April? Can YOU answer the questions I ripped  gathered from my handy dandy, old-school, flip through paper pages encyclopedia?

Get them all (or a few) right and you could win the boobie prize!


                           Let's see if you know Jack!
"Don't mess with me man; I will Jack you up!" 

1. Who was the British author who nick-named himself Jack after the neighbor's dog? (Hint? When it came time to publish, he opted for initials. He had a serious message about lions, witches, and wardrobes...he wasn't jacking around!)

2. What Jack said, "She’s safe, just like I promised. She’s all set to marry Norrington, just like she promised. And you get to die for her, just like you promised. So we’re all men of our word really… except for, of course, Elizabeth, who is in fact, a woman."

3. Jack Sprat could eat no what? His wife could eat no what? And in the end, where did she land?

4. Born John Griffith Chaney, what name did he use on the covers of  "Call of the Wild" and "White Fang"?

5. Who was London's most infamous serial killer who was never brought to justice?

Bonus: What is the nickname of the African Penguin who lives in warm waters and brays like a donkey?

    1. I'm sure he's a happy penguin. He doesn't have to live in snow! I'd bray like a donkey to get to live on the sunny seashore!

  6. So, I assume you've played the video game You Don't Know Jack, right? So Much Fun. Sometimes, I boot up one of my super old computers just to play a round or two against the irreverent game show host...

  10. I'm so excited I think I know a few of these!!!
    1. C.S. Lewis - I mean, who wouldn't want to be "Jack" if one's real name was "Clive."

    2. Captain Jack Sparrow of Pirates of the Caribbean fame.

    3. Jack Sprat could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean. Between them, the plate was clean. Not sure I remember the end right.

    4. Jack London
    5. Jack Ripper.

    oh, and now I scrolled up and saw you already gave the answers . . . so I don't know jack about reading the end of blog posts when I'm excited to answer trivia. :)

  14. Human Elizabeth!

    I note you are up to "J". I knew Jack all in regards to your questions. I once chased a Jack Rabbit. I think it was a Jack Rabbit, perhaps I'm just splitting 'hares'.

    Happy alphabeting!

    Penny the JACK Russell dog and modest internet superstar! :)
