Baby Boomer Test

The  following was sent to me in an email.  I can't take any credit for it.  It's one of those emails that get forwarded all around the world.   We all get them.  This one was fun; kudos to the originator.  Don't you often wonder who does actually come up with this stuff?  Anyway, if you are a true baby boomer you will enjoy this.  If you are younger - you won't have a clue.  Have some fun, and don't cheat.  I scored a 19!  Woohoo!  (What am I woohooing about...that means I'm old!)

  1. That was fun! I scored an 19--what freaked me out was that as I read, I knew the answers without needing to guess from the options. I must be ooooold! ;O)

    I got #4 wrong. Didn't have a clue.

    1. I only missed one but it was number 3. I was never a Pogo fan. Like you, the answers came way too easy for me. I know that means I'm old! LOL!

  4. I scored a 17. Maybe this should concern me, being born in the late 70s and all, but if you knew my mother and her knack for quoting old TV commercials and TV shows, it makes complete sense!
