W.O.T. TRIVIA

Starting a new line of questioning:

Name the car produced by the Ford organisation that features an Anglicized Buick engine.

Winner receives a totally imaginary trophy presented by the fantasy woman/man/chicken of his choice.

I believe the Land Rover Defender uses a Buick engine. Now, how are you going to arrange for Ricky Ponting and Shane Warne to present me with the Ashes :wink:

Yes, you win the trophy, but getting the Ashes, please refer to the genie joke in Have You Heard...

Your turn now, anything trivial, lightweight, frothy etc.

I think he's given up.
Maxx, is your trivia game open to any subject matter, or does it have to revolve around the workings of the internal combustion engine?

It is about utterly pointless, unimportant, information. The only thing I will ask is that the information is reasonably accessible.

Example: what links the last Catholic pope, Luciano Pavarotti and the French philosopher, Albert Camus? And who is the odd one out of the three?

All goalkeepers except the pope?

P.S. Maxx, I think you'll find all the popes so far have been catholic, it's kind of one of the required qualifications for the job ;)

I used to know a Pope who was mainly known for playing Santa Claus.

I figured the "W.O.T." stood for "Wide Open Throttle." Often spelled "W.F.O."

Nay, lad, there are popes in the Orthodox churches too.

Goalies is the link, they all did the job; now who was the odd one out?

I think they've got patriarchs. But I've never been orthodox.

Is that different from Orthodox Football?
Or would that be an ecumenical matter?
I'm not much of a sports buff...

Sorry Maxx, didn't realise I supposed to ask one in return, here you go, there's a slight car element to it.

Who was Lady Creighton-Ward?

PS. I don't think Luciano Pavarotti ever played international football. Camus certainly played in goal for Algeria and I assume the Pope (the Catholic one, that is) played football for Poland, or maybe the Vatican City.
