AQOS: Jook's Nan Edition


#1

Yesterday I asked my Nan some classic AQOS questions.

Can you get inside an 84 year old’s mind to get the correct answers, and is it easier or harder to do so than guessing the answers of a bunch of jumped-up indie pricks?

Pressed enter far too soon. Posting the questions I asked her below… feel free to guess the answers!

A bit of background: Nan is named Chris, she was born in 1933 and is VERY Irish.

She loves reality TV, sitting down, snoozing, The Daily Star and toast. She was into Gin way before it was cool. Her favourite grandchild is @jook, and she is THE BEST.

The questions I asked:

Best thing about flying
A Famous Drag Queen
Something you’re supposed to do every day
A famous puppet
Worst thing about flying
A reason for being sacked from your job
The most loved person in Britain
A reality TV star who has made a successful career after that show has ended
A major life event
Something you take on holiday (money/passport - 0 points)
Question you might ask someone at a school reunion
Rock, paper or scissors?
A significant event of Trump’s first year in office
Something you’d get a tattoo of
One of the 'Friends’
A shop that doesn’t exist any more
Something the Queen might mention in her Christmas speech this year
The worst Christmas song
A celebrity death in 2017
Hero of 2017

One hope for 2018
An Irish celebrity
Leave or Remain
Best ever prime minister
A cartoon character
A gift that you would like

The best TV programme ever made

(I made the last seven up because I was interested in her answers).

One point shall be awarded for each correct answer. GO!


#3

This is a very roundabout way of finding out what she wants for Christmas


#4

Her answer related directly to a gift I gave her five minutes previous. :joy: She’s a sweetheart.


#5

Are we answering individual questions or ALL of them?


#6

whatever the heck you like. It’s Christmas.


#7

A Famous Drag Queen: Lily Savage

A famous puppet: Dustin the Turkey

A major life event: funeral

An Irish celebrity: Gay Byrne

Leave or Remain: Remain

A gift that you would like: Ah nothing, just all the family together, y’know?


#8

Only one correct answer I’m afraid.

A Famous Drag Queen: Lily Savage

Although her wording was slightly different- she said ‘him that does the dogs’.

Astonishingly… zero points. :smiley:

Now that Japes has wasted his time I should reveal that 50% of these answers are nigh-on impossible to guess.

argh


#13

Terry Wogan?


#14

wait, if she didn’t say remain and didn’t say leave…

was it “don’t know”


#15

It was… ‘it doesn’t matter to me, I’ll be dead soon’.

Despite reading the Star and Sun and watching little but ITV, she’s quite a hardened Labour voter.


#16

Yes!

‘Terry Wogan, although he’s dead’
