I enjoyed this quiz but you know your not concentrating when you think 'The Joker' is the bird in Batman. And quizmaster- it's 'Captain' Jack in Pirates!

Lol... Mal, why does Sparrow get a rank, but Armstrong doesn't?

Level 45

Because I don't think Neil Armstrong ever said 'That's CAPTAIN Neil Armstrong', or got other people to say it. 'CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow' is a pretty memorable quirk, almost as memorable as his hat.

Knew them all except the skateboarder, so I just started typing random birds and got it with 3:04 left. I guess that makes me a bird brain.

That's a really funny answer for the Captain one, but I don't suppose that Captain Peacock would be much known outside the UK.

At first I thought, ofcourse we do, everybody who plays cluedo does (even if the american one would be/is different (no idea), if you follow the common pattern for things, the rest of the world often has the same things as uk).

Then googled to be sure.. I mixed things up haha. But that show has aired in the netherlands. Must ve been 15 years ago when I last saw it though. I don't think a description would have triggered the name for me, but the picture might have.

Got all but two. I had heard of cardinal (sin) but not the albatross one (know the bird though, but always forget it needs two s in English, so even if for the last two I would have randomly started guessing I probably still would have not gotten it haha)
