Look, Ma! No hands!

If you don't know which toothpaste used "Look, Ma! No hands!" in its television commercials, you probably won't pass this test. It's for Old Farts.

I aced it.

(By the way... I am more proud of getting 27 out of 30 correct on this test, even if Denny did beat me with 28. What chaps my ass is the fact that I missed ALL THREE that I guessed at!)


Bah...that's not for old farts; I'm 34 and I got all but the Red Skeleton ones... :)

I'm 23 and didn't find the quizes too terribly hard. The first I got 13 out of 15. (I missed the nestle q. and the draft card q. I said flag/bra) On the second one I got 28 out of 30. But as the daughter of a full colonial I should have done better!

I only missed the Red Skelton one because we lived in the mountains, pre-cable, and didn't get the channel that aired it. Never have seen one episode of that show. But I sure as heck aced all the rest of them. Ahem.

I maxed the "Old Fart" quiz. Got 28 on Denny's test.

How come I ain't rich?

I must officially be an old fart now. Only thing I couldn't remember was Freddie the Freeloader. Got the rest of them.

Picking nits, the answer key is wrong. A person can serve as many presidential terms as he can win so long as no more than two are consecutive.

Aced it. I just mind-melded with the guy who wrote the quiz...

Amendment XXII:

Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

2 terms, or 10 years max. Doesn't matter if they are consecutive or not.

I got 14˝ out of 15 on the Old Farts' Quiz. I missed on "Freddy the Freeloader" because I was just a snot-nosed kid when Red Skelton was on TV. But I did remember "Good night, and God bless," and that wiggly-fingered wave of his.

Damn, wrong again. Thanks for the straight dope Steph.

Missed one of the Old Fart quiz (Red Skelton).

Missed two on the other quiz. :-P (# of amendments proposed and ability to declare war; duh!)

Do I get extra credit for 13 if I said Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper?

Hmmm . . . I'm 24 and got 13 of 15 on the first one. I missed the Lone Ranger and Red Skelton questions.

On the second one I got 29 of 30 - missed the one about the prohibition of alcohol transportation being in the constitution.

Old farts, my ass. I got 13 of 15 & I'm 41.
