Monday Quiz 16 – Dolly Mixtures and MacSalads

October 8, 2007 at 12:01 am Leave a comment

On this week last year (October 8 to October 14, 2006):

  • Why did the Gardai not intervene – even though they were present – to stop a violent brawl between two armed, drunken men in a Dublin pub, which continued outside the US Embassy?
  • What innovative solution did Fine Gael and Labour propose for dealing with intoxicated people?
  • What did Minister Seamus Brennan describe as ‘a dolly mixture approach… where you can have a bit of this and a bit of that and a bit of the other.’
  • Why did Michael Flatley buy a new Rolls Royce?
  • McDonalds sales in Europe rose by 10% after healthier items were put on the menu. But, according to a Chicago food analyst, why did McDonalds really introduce salads to their menu?

  • Because the two men involved were armed Gardai who were on duty outside the US Embassy. The incident happened the previous year, but news broke this week last year of their suspension from duty, following an internal investigation.
  • ‘Drunk Tanks’, with mattresses, where they could sleep off the effects of alcohol.
  • Speculation about a Fianna Fail Green Party coalition.
  • To bring his fiancee to the Church for their wedding. yes, that’s buy a Rolls Royce, not hire one.
  • To eliminate the ‘veto vote’, where most of a group of friends want to go to McDonalds but one of them wants to eat healthily instead. If there is salad on the menu, then the group won’t have to go elsewhere, and McDonalds gets to sell a lot more Big Macs and French Fries.
