Great trivia! I don't think I knew any of the answers. Those are Jeopardy answers for the category, "eggs".

I got 4 correct, I would have only got 3, but reyjr posted about balut, so that was how I knew that one.

Thank you for posting the quiz. It was fun to take.

God bless.

I'm glad that so many people attempted my quiz. reyjr and I will have to coordinate our posts better next time ; ) I am disappointed that no spanish speakers visited and saw my joke in question 8 however : (

I did okay, but feel that some of that Honduran beer would have improved my score...
