Oh I don't know, I'm sure I could give it a go:

Ahem.

Having come across this extremely easy quiz on this puny little website I would be extremely disappointed if I hadn't got 100% without guessing any wrong answers and using at most 10 seconds. I did not disappoint my highest of standards (which are much higher and greater than any of yours). This was because my IQ is over 173 and because I am possibly the cleverest person ever to have used this website. Also I am the best at every possible subject area you could think of including literally everything but lots of it I don't bother with as it is too easy. I am in fact not bragging, I am being extremely modest as my true greatness is much more than what I admitted so as not to make you feel bad about yourselves. I am actually so modest I can admit my only fault. My only fault is that I don't know how great I really am. Because I am extraordinarily greatly great at greatness.

They have real motels here in the Philippines... places where you drive inside and then you can go straight to a garage that opens directly to your room. It's a discreet place to take your mistress or escort or girlfriend. They're all over the place.

Most motels in the USA are designed so that you can park very near the door to your room, and are often found along busy highways. In contrast, American hotels typically have a main entrance and a lobby you must pass through to get to a corridor or elevator that takes you where you want to go, and are most often found in city centers or near various points of interest. The Filipino motels just take it to an additional level.

I "made up" (I don't know if it existed before hand, but it came to me one day) "angertained." Like when you're watching something infuriating but you can't stop watching because of the entertainment value.

The only one I didn't get was the very first one. Because I've never heard of a pomelo. And by the way, it's pretty clear that "pomelo" is, wait for it... a portmanteau word!
