You're Just Being Ridiculous

Come on - you chose the obviously wrong answers just to see what would come up, didn't you?  I mean, who seriously wants a negative score?  You should really take it again, but if you need some help, you can read the answers under "Missed It By That Much" first (no pun intended).

 

And just for kicks - here's some info on the ridiculous answers.

 

Merkin Muffley is the name of the president in the 1964 black comedy, Dr. Strangelove.

 

Fyodor Dostoyevsky, although a famous Russian author, was never a Russian Tsar.

 

The Apple Dumpling Gang was a 1971 book, and a 1975 Disney movie which starred Bill Bixby, Susan Clark, Don Knotts, & Tim Conway.  

 

Manfred von Richthofen, a.k.a. the Red Baron, while officially accredited 80 air combat victories in World War I, never flew solo across the Atlantic.

 

Although Michael Jackson did make The Moonwalk a popular dance step in the early 1980's, he never actually stepped foot on the moon.

 

Dame Edna is neither a queen, nor English.  She is an "average Australian housewife," portrayed by Barry Humphries in drag.

 

I assume you already know this, but just in case... Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Speed Racer, and Alvin & the Chipmunks are all fictional (and usually cartoon) characters.  Although on film they can fly, race cars, and sing hit songs, respectively, they could never be the first person in the categories under which they were listed.

 

Donald Duck is also a fictional cartoon character and although ducks do fly, none have been known to orbit the earth, nor are any known to have been sent into space.  Believe it or not, though, Ham, the chimp, and Felix, the cat, were both involved in flights for their space program.
