I'm feeling miserable and it's all the fault of the grape. That bastard. I very nearly even wrote an interesting content-ridden post on gender, comics, TV, movies and/or creationism, but my brain isn't working.

So I decided to twist that pop culture meme. Because most of the time, I don't just expect you to get the reference, I expect the correct response to it.You get no points for the reference, just the response.

10 pop cultural references I expect my nearest and dearest to respond correctly to:

1. So you're an artist? What kind of things do you do? "Anger, pain, fear, aggression." - Spaced, djcati
2. He set himself on fire. "Maybe he was cold." Fray - rowanberries
3. Cheer up. You know what the Monty Python boys say? "No body expects the Spanish Inquisition." (Sliding Doors - the_greek_geek
4. The monkey is French? "All monkeys are French - you didn't know that?" Buffy - megaloo13
5. The internet is really really great... For porn Avenue Q djcati got there first but everyone got it really.
6. Who put this on? "It's on random" - Shaun of the Dead - skellingtonjon
7. What d'you think of it so far? "Rubbish" - Morecombe and Wise - The innermum
8. How do you know so much about swallows? - "Well, you have to know these things when you're a king, you know." Monty Python and the Holy Grail - zmiya_san
9. What's so big about being human? "Listy, don't knock it 'til you've tried it." - Red Dwarf huskyteer
10. What would you say to a nice cup o' tea? "Feck off, cup!" - Father Ted, matgb

1. Pain ... anger ... fear ... except I don't remember them all and don't think that's the right order. D:

5 ) For porn (but too obvious)
9) Don't knock it till you've tried it
10 ) Feck off!

The rest all bug me in a "I should know this" kinda way.

Heh; googling tells me I was wrong on number 9. The top result looks familiar though ;-)

3. "No one expects the Spanish Inquisition." (End lines of Sliding doors if I am correct)

3. No one expects the Spanish Inquistion!
(Love that movie/John Hannah so much)
4. All monkeys are French, didn't you know that?

And I just know 2 is a Fray quote and it's a testament to how much I need to reread it that I don't know the right response.

2. Maybe he was cold.
