Fun with SQLskills

I’m in a fun mood today, so a few silly items for you.

The last few weeks, Paul Randal (blog | @PaulRandal) of SQLskills has been doing a quiz on Twitter some days. He’s asked some rather difficult questions on Twitter, and people have had fun following along. I decided to get in on the fun today with a few questions of my own as a “pre-test” to his quiz.

Question 1: Which of these glasses does Kimberly Tripp (blog | @KimberlyLTripp) prefer?


Question 2: What is this and is how does it relate to Paul Randal?


Question 3: Will it fit?


I’m having fun today, as you can see


In case you really want the answers:

A1: none of them; they’re all empty!

A2: It’s a kilt, which is a skirt for boys from Scotland. That’s where Paul was born.

A3: I’ll let you know after this evening Winking smile

I like the answers, although I'm not sure how you would get on in Scotland referring to a kilt as a "skirt" :)

I'm betting the answer to #3 is no - there're big cups :)

Grab yourself a sturdy SQLskills bottle opener if you get the chance - it's one of my prized possessions - has had a lot of use - and is still going strong.

The second question I would have answered it as "It is made from Sheep wool" :-)

I love Scotland, though they might not like my jokes. Actually I was too busy to test last night. Might try tonight.

I got an MCM bottle opener from Kimberly, is that what you mean?

Second Q was tooooooo easy.  Though sheeps bed did come to mind.
