A-Z Challenge Day 13

Short stories featuring musical instruments and those who play them!




m13It was my turn to choose the questions for the pub quiz. I usually have trouble answering them so this was my chance to get my own back on the clever clogs that set those unfathomable ones.

I thought I’d pop into the bookshop to try and find a book of questions, and there in the Quiz Book section was my friend Rosey.  I asked her what she was looking for, and she said she needed a book on French Cuisine!

Anyway, I found a suitable ‘quizionary’ and dashed home to get setting! I thought I’d go with a musical theme.

See how you get on –

1 Which instruments are cocktail bartenders best at playing?

2 What do you call a musical cow?

3  What instruments do Lynne and Mandy play?

4 What do you get when you drop a piano down a mine shaft?

5 What’s a metronome?

6 What did Mozart do in his grave?

Best of luck!



1 Maracas

2 A moo-sician

3 Mandolins

4 A flat minor

5 A city-dwelling dwarf

6 Decompose

    I love pub quizzes. We won one when we were in Maryland on vacation. It came down to the last question. I don’t remember the question but I remember the answer was Neil Young. Funny that I can’t remember the question.Weekends In Maine

    Clever clever. I thought the last one was a REST. While the first was a tambourine

    I’m terrible at riddles so I didn’t even try but these were pretty funny. I had to actually mime the 1st one (maracas) before I got it – shaken not stirred. Took me a minute. You are a funny guy!

    Great riddles! Didn’t get any of them, so I’d be no good on a quiz team.

      They were rather high-brow questions, so don’t feel guilty! Thanks Gail.
