Aaargh. I was sure it was Betseba and tried several versions of that. It never occurred to be to change the vowel!

Damn, I knew about Michelangelo's David but couldn't think of any other scultor in the Renaissance... so I started going through the other ninja turtles but stopped before I reached Donatello *headdesk*.

When in doubt about an artist, go through the Ninja Turtles. It usually works.

Verrocchio, yes, but Bernini is a (or rather, the) Baroque sculptor.

"Tribe that the giant came from" I tried Philistia. That didn't work, so I tried "Philistine", since he was a Philistine. No good. The correct answer is "Philistines", but I didn't try that since it doesn't make sense the way the question was asked. I gave up, figuring that it was going to super specific, like Ashdod or Gath (he was from Gath). But no, it was looking for the plural demonym for members of the tribe rather than the name of the tribe.

I had the exact same problem. I would have thought that the singular should be accepted at least.

Maybe Gay Focker would have done better with the in-laws if he had a stash of foreskins. Just in case.

Did David get paid for slaying those 200 guys? No, but he got to keep the tips.

I once took a history test years ago in high school. I would have gotten 100%, but I spelled his name "MichAelangelo", instead of without that "A"....... I've never forgotten how to spell his name since...

Oh, well I guess we must expect that these days any comment not in goose-stepping agreement with the nattering nabobs will be attacked. So be it, but I will continue to express my opinions as I wish and whoever doesn't like them can choke on them.

Just wanted to point out that David was the king of the unified kingdom of Israel, so at that time Judah was one region of the kingdom of Israel. To say he was king of Israel AND Judah is redundant. Good quiz though.
