Surrender to this week's toughest questions

Surrender to the popular will of righteously harmonious quizzing or be trampled underfoot like a running dog imperialist's lackey! Here are some of the toughest or most interesting questions from the two quizzes I ran this past week, plus the whole Secret Theme Round from Frank's. I'll post the answers in a few days.

2) Not counting D'Artagnan, name the Three Musketeers.
3) According to the Recording Industry Association of America, what's the best-selling album of all time in the US?
4) In the zoological hierarchy, what comes between Phylum and Order?
5) In what California city were both the McDonald's chain and Hell's Angels founded?
6) What was the only US Top 40 single for the Jimi Hendrix Experience?

I love USFL questions. Sorry I wasn't there. I think I can name all 12 inaugural franchises and most, if not all of the expansion teams.

Long live Chuck Fusina!

Was in Hollywood for a few days, and missed Good Dog tonight, where I was hoping to play on yet another team, and sneak out a W.

It's a shame you missed the USFL round! I have to say the odds of me asking another USFL question soon are not good... what happened to Chuck Fusina anyway?

A stand up comic in Hollywood, eh? Will we being seeing the pilot for The Steve Odabashian Show anytime soon? Can I play the Wacky Neighbor? I promise not to have a racist meltdown several years after the show goes off the air.
