Composer or Pasta

I just saw this quiz and thought it was cute. You have to guess if the name provided is a pasta or a classical composer . . .

  1. woohoo, I got 17/21!

    1. That was pretty tough! I only got 15 out of 21 correct, and I consider myself to be pretty knowledgeable in both of those fields.

      1. 15 out of 21 for me too. That was tougher than I thought it would be.

        1. 15/21 I feel like a failure :(

          1. 19 right – woo hoo! On the other hand, I hate admitting I thought two famous (it says here) composers were noodles …

            1. 20/21 for me, but a few were WAGs....I probably *knew* about 15 of them.

              1. 19 right out of 21. Some were educated guesses, however. That was fun, I forwarded to my pasta loving sons and choral group members.

                1. Reminds me of "Cheese or Font": http://cheeseorfont.com/

                  I love it - it makes me laugh out loud - but I'm TERRIBLE at it - I'd do better with my eyes closed.

                  I also saw one years ago where you had to distinguish heavy-metal bands from psychiatric drugs.

                  1. That was a hoot. 17/21 (and a few were just guesses). I either need to eat more pasta or listen to more classical music.

                    (Edited for spelling.)

                    1. 16 out of 21.

                      1. 16/21... pretty surprised considering my classical music knowledge is minimal beyond "the greats".

                        1. 15. Wow. That was humbling, as I'm a classically trained violinist since age five.

                          1. 19/21. Since I don't know all that much about composers I clearly spend too much time in the pasta aisle.

                            1. It was fun! 17/21.

                              1. 19, and I'm ashamed to say it was mostly because of my kinda sorta knowledge of pasta rather than composers. This was a super lunchtime diversion. Thanks, Thimes!

                                1. I got 20! Guess I should go buy some lotto tickets now cause it was mostly lucky guesses.

                                  1. 14.

                                    Now I feel like I need to go out an eat more pasta.

                                      How odd,...I was thinking the same thing about Italian composers.

                                    2. 18/21...not bad. But I spend alot of time listening to classical music and eating pasta. Nice combination.
