April Fool's Quiz

Dr Phil's April Fools' Day Quiz
Hello Everyone,
I know this is short notice (hey I'm not the long range weather forecast), but I'd thought I'd use April Fools Day as a cynical opportunity to sell more beer. So, just for fun, I'm putting together a Fools' Day related quiz. Dr Phil's tapas will be available also.
Also there will be a special announcement so I'd like to see as many of the the regulars as possible.
