(By the way, I didn't do so good on this quiz. I scored 15 out of 24. I never heard of five of the films. I had to use the groupings to get some of them. If you are a die-hard movie buff, you should score better than my 15.)

No.350

I didn't need to look at your answers because I know the word beer is the answer in every case, except the last side dish, where the word is "beery." I am so good at this stuff....

I like movie trivia when drinking. Like the game Gilligan, I take a gulp when incorrect. The next day I rarely remember what movies I missed, much less the ones I remember.
AND here's my response to your comment on my whining about no readers post: I had been averaging about 6-8 readers when I used to have over 50. I thought I was smelling bad over the 'Net or something. Since you are fishing for a part time job, feel free to stop by and comment any time. Pro bono, of course!

Didn't do so well on that quiz. I think I got 5, 2 of which were ones I'd actually seen.
