1. Cockburn Town is the capital of what archipelago?

These islands are believed to be the result of a G-type meteor strike, leaving the Vulvic Bay in its place." - [livejournal.com profile] jargon

"In my college group of misfits, we had unique nicknames. One was named Archipelago, but we called him Arci for short. I have no idea how he got that name. My nickname? Goat Muncher. Because I put a cock leash on a stuffed goat beanie toy. And now the whole internet knows this random insight now, g'night everyone!" - [livejournal.com profile] akiyasan

Hmmm, 2.5 and 1/11 of the group-Turkish-Delight-dislike ... not bad! (And after seeing [livejournal.com profile] drbear's and [livejournal.com profile] akiyasan's answers to #6, I can't believe I didn't think of going VERY old!school and saying, "it's in New Orleans, and called The Rising Sun". *facepalm*)

Yeah, well, unfortunately I didn't think of that until today. Hmph. Maybe next time, inspiration will strike sooner.

As for Turkish Delight, there's ONE variety full of pistachios that's actually quite nice, but the rest? *gag*

I also don't like Baklava and most other kinds of Turkish desserts; don't get me wrong, I'll kill for good chocolate or a tasty pudding, but in roughly a dozen vacations in the country, my first choice usually is either ice cream or fruit for dessert, NOT pastries. WAY too much honey, sugar, rose and orange water, IMO!

I'm curious about [livejournal.com profile] primavera's answer to the Turkish Delight question, since you ran with my quote.

Ha, nothing like a cock leash thrown in there for a quote age. Hee…

I think I tried Turkish Delight before. Didn't care for it.

Yay! Four quotes. Oh, hindsight is 20/20 . . .

For #5 I should've asked, "An African or European swallow?"
