So here we are again, gonna do another Fibbing Friday. I’ll try to be more creative with my answers this time. I know I didn’t do that great last week. Anyway, I’ll give it my best shot. Go to dude’s blog to see the original questions and links to other people’s answers. And now on to the questions:
What tax did Henry VIII introduce in 1535? The new wife tax. I mean, he’d killed off a few by then, so he figured he would lead by example and put a tax on all new wives. Wives were considered property back then anyway, so why not tax them?
Who entered a contest for his own lookalike, and came third? John Doe. But he also came in First, second, fourth and fifth. I mean, everyone in the contest was named John Doe, so it was difficult to give prizes, but it seems everyone got a prize. It was the first and last annual John Doe look-alike contest. The main problem, aside from everyone being named the same, is that no one knew what, exactly John Doe was supposed to look like.
What sort of creature is a mountain chicken? I’ll come back to this one.
In which city is the UK’s Dyslexia Research Trust based? Noodle?
What is Scooby Doo’s full name? I can’t think of anything except Scooby Dooby Doo. Which of course, isn’t a fib. It’s just what he says when he gets excited. I honestly don’t know if that’s his full name or not.
What is a zeedonk? I have no idea, so anything I say would be a fib. So let me think? Dunking zees? What’s a zee? A zee is the letter zee. My spellcheck says it isn’t, but it is. I’ve used it in Scrabble. Dunking them in what? I dunno. I’m making it up as I go along. Though it says donk not dunk… hmmm. It’s a morgh. Sue me. I have to look the word up now. A zeedonk is the name given to a hybrid of a zebra and a donkey (that’s the truth).
Coprastastaphobia is the fear of what? I don’t know this word either. Hmmm. The fear of fantastic cobras? I mean that’s a real fear to have. Cobras are deadly and I have a healthy fear of them. And if they’re fantastic, I’ve fear them even more. 🙂 Okay, back to google. Coprastastaphobia is the fear of constipation or having hard and difficult bowl movement. Also a valid fear if you ask me.
What is an orange pippin? It’s what’s left in the orange peel when you eat an orange.
What is a Royal Flush? What people with coprastastaphobia are afraid of leaving in the commode. Especially those of a blue blood line.
Who is currently 15th in line to the British Throne? I have no idea. I barely keep track of who’s running for office outside of my local district. If I had to guess, I’d say…
