I don't need to take a quiz to know I'd score 100 - hence the name "Basil" images/icons/grin.gif

I got 43%...but some of those answers were not right. For instance, Benny Hill is both shameful and a monument to British humor, so how can you choose?

Ok, I finally took the test and it said I wasn't enough of a snob....only scored 48% images/icons/grin.gif

57% here, and I honestly have no idea what a "Chukka" is. On the other hand I used to like watching Benny Hill so - go figure.

Tied with Scott.....I don't know what "Brie" or "Chukka" is....plus I drive a Sprite......how can I be 57% snob?........

I *do* like the PBS Manor House show, though.

67%. And yes, I DO know what a chukka is! I could easily have maxed that one out, but I tried to be honest! graemlins/devilgrin.gif

67%, tie for top spot so far with Steve

I have to admit though that some of them I didn't know either answer but had to say something. images/icons/rolleyes.gif

Of course, one might do rather well at this sort of thing if one demeaned oneself to trying.

I called myself "Algernon" and then racked up 91%, with effortless ease.

Quite so.

Too true.

1. "You buy...." Certainly not, one's housekeeper has better taste.

4. "...what people think...." No, not generally, but only the right sort of people, you know.

5 "...a den...." For my pet bear, perhaps?

10 "....a house in the Hamptons...."? Is that like having one of your houses in "Country Life"?

11 Of course not, one's illustrious forefathers are public knowledge....

etc.

27 Unemployed? But of course, what else would the idle rich qualify for?

It is so tedious to associate with the working classes: doctors, lawyers, bankers and such like....

That was my score too.

And I'm as Cracker, as Cracker can be!

59%, so I'm touch and go, apparently. Must swap out the sports cars for a proper vehicle, apparently. Oh well.

I managed 78%, and I actually went to Cambridge. Some of the questions must just have wrong answers.

A while back there was a profile in our local paper on a doc in town who was making $4 million a year. (Chain of clinics, IIRC.) He said he didn't consider himself rich because he had to get up and go to work in the morning like everyone else!

70%. Not bad for a born and raised Texan. Just for the record, a Chukka is a type of casual boot. Plain-toe blucher cut lace-up. In case you were wondering. Wonder if it would throw things out of whack for them to know I live in a Mobile Mansion.

Not certain that I should say. Born in New Mexico, raised thru the 60s, was a street hippie, had LBCs since I was 14, lived in NYC and LA for 12 years each...I am a mixed breed.

Scored 78

well I got a 78% on that quiz. I suppose one of you jag owners will have to give it up to me and you can take my spit.

I thought a chukka was the equivalent of a quarter (football) or period (hockey), but in polo...no?

43%, but it turns out I thought I knew what a chukka was, but I didn't, so that's got to knock me down a couple of points.
