Pop Culture Quiz

About a month ago I was asked to submit up to three question for Hey! Nielsen's Pop Culture Quiz. The quiz went live earlier this month where you can win $1,000 in prizes including a Sony PSP, Apple iPod nano, a one-year subscription to Netflix, free music downloads, and more pop culture goodies. Of the ten questions I submitted they only used one so since I do not have time to whip up a Lyrics Quiz this month, I thought I would pose the questions I submitted to you instead. Feel free to leave your guesses in the comment section and I will let you know if you are right later. And don't forget to check out Hey! Nielsen's Pop Culture Quiz too as their prizes are better than my virtual pat on the back for being right.

2. What was the name of Rosco P. Coltrane's dog?

Win, Speed Racer, Win

I am not the biggest fan of turning cartoons into live action movies but despite all my gripes, Hollywood continues to ruin my childhood. The latest being Speed Racer. But MTV is currently running a contest threw April 18 where you can win a $100,000 tricked out Corvette. Here is how you can enter:

1. Entries must be made by text on their website, (by entering your phone number and carrier) or by texting “fast” to 90736.
2. On April 18th, participants will be notified how to answer a “Speed Racer” trivia question via text.
3. They must answer the question within 2 minutes to qualify.
4. 10 winners will be flown to premiere in Los Angeles to race (mini cars) for a car inspired by “Speed Racer”.

Below are some pictures of the car:
