Phone a Friend: Volume 20
(...or Qer) 

Here are a few more trivia questions (this time I am creative enough to make a new poll, I just don't know if I want to ... stick THAT in your back pocket).  I don't care about the answers, so don't get all click-happy, you Googling cheaters.  I just want to know, if you were on a game show and had the "phone a friend" option, which Qer would you call for help with each one and why?  
Commence.

1.  What famous literary character lived at 221B Baker Street, London, England?

2.  Which mountains divide Spain and France?

3.  Three NHL teams won the President's Trophy more than once in the 1990s.  Name one.

4.  What famous Mexican artist painted Dia de Muertos in 1944?

5.  Who is the only person inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame twice?

1.  What famous literary character lived at 221B Baker Street, London, England?  I know this but I'm calling.... Janet, maybe.
2.  Which mountains divide Spain and France? Ugh, I hate geography, I'm calling gearhead. He better have his nerd-on.
3.  Three NHL teams won the President's Trophy more than once in the 1990s.  Name one. Well any of my hockey friiinds would know this. I'm not talking to Kurt, so no. Nyce would be too excited to be on the show and wanna play with the host, we'd never get to the answer, so no. Stoney is apparently too busy to answer the phone. Woody is drunk....I'm calling Teach, fingers crossed.
4.  What famous Mexican artist painted Dia de Muertos in 1944? If it's multiple choice, I know this...otherwise I'm calling... hmmm... Old Mike, so he can say "what the "f***...?" on nat'l tv and I can fall out of the chair laughing.
5.  Who is the only person inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame twice? lol. I'm calling Jswol (for the reaction, and he can google quickly I'm sure).

In question #3 you only ask for one.  So what you are saying here is that the other 2 don't matter.  And why are you getting all racist in question #4?  In #2, are there actually mountain(s) or are you asking for a mountain (singular) range?

1.  What famous literary character lived at 221B Baker Street, London, England?  I know it, but I'd call James because he's a ______ nerd.  

2.  Which mountains divide Spain and France?  I'd call Norse ... just because he's smart-tastic.

3.  Three NHL teams won the President's Trophy more than once in the 1990s.  Name one.  Stoney better know this.  Otherwise I'll feel dumb for not calling Becky.

4.  What famous Mexican artist painted Dia de Muertos in 1944?  Umm, I think I'd call Violet.  She's super smart and lives in Mexico.  I don't know if she knows art/artists, but I'll take a gamble.

5.  Who is the only person inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame twice?  I'd call Cuddles because she loves country music, and I don't have a clue.

1.  What famous literary character lived at 221B Baker Street, London, England?   I know this, but for giggles, I looked up the address on Google Maps.   It seems there isn't a residence located there at all.  It's just a museum.   (oh.)

2.  Which mountains divide Spain and France?   I didn't know mountains could do math, let alone an algebra problem.   Spain / France = X  (but be careful...if France = 0, then we are all in trouble.)

3.  Three NHL teams won the President's Trophy more than once in the 1990s.  Name one.
   I don't think I am allowed to name them.  They already have names.  The only way I would get to name one is if I bought the team, and I don't have nearly enough change in my pocket to do that.

See there, the problem here is that we have teachers on this site, and you aint F'n paying attention to them.  The question says what mountains divide France and Spain.  Therefore, the equation would look like this, given that the mountains are represented by x:

France  =  Spain
    X                X


Glad I could help.

Not sure that is the correct equation.    First of all, France definitely does not equal Spain.      Second, by emphasizing the and, that's addition.    The equation would more likely be...

  France  +  Spain 
               X

Well, #4, Dia de Muertos translates to Day of the Dead.   I'm trying to figure out how any artist takes a brush and paints a Day.  Whenever a paintbrush meets my hand, all that comes out is some cr*ppy stick figures.

I gots nothin' for #5.  I'm tapped out of answers for the day.
