Great quiz. got three wrong. I think most of these were on the old I.Q. tests they used to give at school ( now revealing my age) The answer to question 20. should be George W. Bush not to be mistaken for his dad George Bush

Here in the great state of Texas he is known simply as "Dub-ya"... George Herbert Walker Bush is "Daddy"

George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush

I get confused when I drive on the "President George Bush" tollway... Who shall I thank for this shortcut accross the north end of the city and out to DFW Airport ?... Dub-Ya or Daddy ?
