Posh School Quizzes Brainy Kids On Beards


Each year King Williams College on the Isle of Man quizzes it’s pupils with possibly the hardest quiz ever devised by man. This Christmas the school has asked its pupils a number of questions about BEARDS! Clearly the future leaders of the country are being prepared for a life where a facial companion is a friend that will bring power and influence.

The World of Beards is frankly struggling to answer any of the questions on the quiz, let alone any on its specialist subject. Can you help? Those beard brain bamboozlers are:  14.

1 – who imposed a levy on beards?

2 – who described a multinidal growth?

5 – which bearded and bright-eyed old tar delayed a wedding


6 – who suffered his beard to grow until it was about a quarter

of a yard long?

9 – who had a beard of burnt-up black?

The full quiz is available here
