LatitudeFestTest – are you local?

This post came out of a twitter conversation, based in part on jealousy of those actually at Latitude and talking about the routes to take to avoid the traffic. Remember kind folks that out here two tractors and a car make a major traffic problem. The A12 full of traffic is a serious worry.  I suggested I needed a sticker that said ‘I am local let me through’ and the lovely @spudballoo suggested I devise a quiz to sort out the locals from the grockels.  The fact that she and I can both use that term shows a certain cider drinking, west countryness, to the pair of us – course they could be Emmets but then they’d be Cornish ants rather than local bacon and ham producers.  Then the equally lovely @nickshore added a question and as some of the answers in Twitter were so amusing I thought I would post the full set here.

Feel free to add your answers, serious or funny – I’ll choose the best one to receive some of my bzzagent goodies, currently Splenda and Arm and Hammer samples

The LatitudeFestTest

Question 1:  How do you like your Black Shuck?

Question 2: (from @Nickshore) How do you pronounce Hoxne?

Question 3: What do you treat Peronelle’s Blush with?

Question 4: The shop in the lane sells eggs at 90p per half dozen; how do you pay?

Question 5: What two things happen in the lane most days? (seriously local question, but if you are local you just know)

Question 6: If you catch crabs, what state is your tackle likely to be in?

Question 7: Why are there no peas in Suffolk this year (except in Peasenhall)?

Question 8: Whose estate are you camping on and where is the big house?

Question 9: If someone calls you Bah how do you respond?

Question 10: What is the correct ratio of sky to land?

Have fun – I look forward to seeing your answers
