Oh Wiki, You're So Fine

Well, I see from his most recent post that Nuffy is still alive. Also, he appears to have addictively read through the entire content of the English version of Wikipedia (also, possibly the Finnish and Portugese versions).

Of course, as regular Internet denizens of the World Wide Web Ethersphere know, Wikipedia is a massive online Encylopedia edited by anyone willing to take the time to change the spelling of Paris Hilton's first name by exchanging the "ar" for "en." This massive online database has a tremendous amount of information, particularly on comic books, sci-fi television, and The Simpsons. It also contains a fair amount of history, science, and politics, some of which is actually accurate.

However, Wikipedia is so large, I cannot imagine that even someone like Nuffy, who has completed several advanced speed-reading classes and has a chip in his brain, could read it all. I suspect he's done some very detailed skimming, so I challenge him to answer the following questions, the answers to which can be found in Wikipedia (unless they aren't in which case the question is a trick question).

  1. How many counties does the nation of Sealand have?
  2. Cameron Diaz has a tattoo of which MPAA President on her bum?
  3. Winston Churchill's favourite one-liner paired a nun with which type of penguin?
  4. Albert Einstein originally wrote his General Theory of Relativity on what brand of chewing gum wrapper?
  5. The inverse quotient of a fractional trigonemetrical proof resembles which kind of marsupial?
  6. How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood...backwards?
  7. Just what the hell does a woodchuck look like anyway?
  8. How much communication with Satan did Dan Brown require to write The DaVinci Code and what well known talk show host introduced them?
  9. On a scale of 1 to 10, what is Paris Hilton and Britney Spears combined IQ?
  10. If green were purple, what colour would a banana be?
  11. Who invented the safety razor and how many people did they kill in the research and development phase? How many did they kill in the marketing phase?
  12. In episode #1672 of The Simpsons (or as real fans know, episode AAC07B9QZ) entitled "Homerlicious," Homer scratched which part of his body with a half-empty can of Duff's beer?
  13. (Bonus Question) What is the middle name of the Emperor of Switzerland?
