Trivia Thursday

I’ve always been a sucker for pub trivia, and I almost like creating trivia quizzes more than competing in them. The answers to the first nine questions are all connected by a theme, and the tenth is the theme. Feel free to share this quiz, and no Googling when you’re trying it! (What’s the fun in that?) Answers will be posted next week with the newest quiz.

  2. This expression of approval for a performance is also the name of a cable network that used to feature fine arts performances but now broadcasts Top Chef and Real Housewives.
