Steve Hollier’s Blog: Christmas Quiz

To celebrate the coming of the festive season, I’ve put together this little quiz for you.

See if you can work out who the celebrity or star is from pictures taken when they were much younger…

The competition is open until 6th January 2011 and the prize will be the drink of your choice when we next meet. Enjoy!











Some are more difficult than others!

    OK Hollier, it’s belly up to the bar time! And mine is a gin and tonic with not much tonic and plenty of gin!

    Who are they? it’s bleeding obvious! Stands out a mile!

    1. Quite clearly George Bush Jr, already planning nuclear hair explosions in Iraq to seize oil fields for US commercial interests. (or a toilet brush designer looking into new technology for that ultimate head in check up, and perfect wash and polish).
    2. I’m going with Angelina on this one.
    3. Nicol Kidman.
    4. Brad Pitt. I got stuck in a Seattle hotel for two days after my Bolivia flight was overbooked and spent several years on my bed waiting for “Meet Joe Black” to finish. I fell asleep several times during the movie and still can’t really remember how it ended. But that man has stayed in my head ever since.
    5.Britney Spears.
    6. This dweeb has to be 007. Sean.
    7. Beckham. Before he stopped looking bent and started bending it.
    8. Gandolf? Whoever the f***k he is.
    9. Jonny Depp.
    10. Looks very much like my brother. But I need gin, so I’m going for Jude Law.

    Do I win a gin?



  2. stevehollier says:

    Not 100% but, you win tonight’s star prize! Gin, all round…

  3. Hugh Paxton says:

    It was Angelina let me down, right? I knew she was Jimi Hendrix as soon as I saw her but didn’t have the confidence to say so. Hendrix was just too white and female and his impersonation of Angelina was extraodinarily precise. That man was a genius!

    You threw me on that one, you cunning swine! Darn!

    Gins away!

    Incidentally Louie arrived safely, is happily ensconced and spent the jet lagged day looking at antique Oriental furniture and curiousities. He was intrigued and involved. He was a welcome guest (still is) and was fun. He’s enjoying himself. All well!

    The curiousity I really wanted to buy was a a yak kidney, dried and converted into a black powder flask for crappy muskets. Brilliant! There was also a Chinese musket. Totally crappy! No wonder the Imperial Army of Japan overwhelmed them in days!

    Treasures here. Dangerous.




    PS Who is Gandolf?

  4. stevehollier says:

    Thank you one and all for your gallant efforts!

    Here as promised are the definitive results:
    1. Morgan Freeman [not Hendrix!]
    2. Angelina Jolli
    3. Nicol Kidman
    4. Brad Pitt
    5. Britney Spears
    6. Sean Connery
    7. David Beckham
    8. James Gandolini
    9. Johnny Depp
    10. Jude Law

    Thank you all for taking part in the quiz and congratulations to Hugh Paxton fro getting eight out of ten correct answers! you wil tonight’s star prize, a meal for two at the Bangkok restaurant of your choice…
