It's a joke that old folks tell. They ask " What's the capital of Kentucky, 'Loo - EE - ville' or 'Loo - IS - ville'". The vast majority of people will say one of those two pronunciations of Louisville, then the old fart will say that the capital is Frankfurt and cackle for several minutes straight.

I spent the final 4 minutes trying to misspell Frankfort. I tried Frankfurt (the most-commonly believed answer for Kentucky's capital, where I live), Frenkfort, Frenkfurt, Frankfirt, etc etc. I've never heard anyone call Louisville Kentucky's capital.

I guess I'm out of touch with police codes and why 420 is significant. Who would be making any mistakes about any police codes? Do people actually go around memorizing them if they are not actually police officers... or criminals?

You must not be a pot smoker. People smoke weed at 4:20 and on 4/20! And 420 just means "marijuana", but no one knows the origin. Some people say that it's because it's the police code, but this is not true.

I couldn't get that one, either. I thought maybe it was something from the telephone letters, and tried 768 for pot, and 4444 for high. But I've never smoked pot (unless you count the drift from the girl across the hall from my dorm room who smoked all the time.)

Hilarious quiz! Didn't get it for a while, then had to look up what April Fools was, as we don't have this tradition where I'm from in New Zealand. Well, we have something kind of similar, I guess, called June Jester, where people make fun of Australians and tell sheep jokes to each other during the day, but it's not as elaborate as this seems to be.

I have read before that George Washington Carver didn't invent peanut butter and I got the question right but I remember when I was a little girl doing a book report on him and reading a book and it saying he invented it. I can remember clearly taking in a jar of peanut butter to elementary school for my presentation. This was in the 80s though so I guess some things were wrong like how they taught us Christopher Columbus was a great guy who discovered America. Totally forgot to tell us what a total POS he was... Great quiz, even though reading the comments usually is the best part.

You could have done without the lewd comment about Sarah Palin. It is your own opinion that you should have kept to yourself. And Louisville is NOT the capital of Kentucky...Frankfort is. Also, I believe President Washington didn't have wooden teeth. You should check your facts before you create another quiz.
