Hello again, General Knowledge here.
The B.I.S. Webmaster tells me that my first quiz is so popular he'd like me to do another!
I asked him if I could do one on the subject of my hobby, but he said "No, better not. I'm not sure how much the troopers know about taxidermy, or how much they want to know!". In fact he didn't say all that, he just said "Get stuffed!", but I'm sure that's what he meant.
Finally, I'd like to thank the Webmaster for coming up with the oh-so-original name for this quiz.

Good luck!
