Quiz: Oprah, Chopra or The Pope-a?

Last week’s quiz, Deepak, 2pac or a Six Pack was so well-received that we had to do another. Thanks to commenter greenishblu for inspiring this week’s iteration! Note to those reading via RSS: you’ll have to click through to partake in the fun!

There are 17 questions, each one referring to either media tycoon Oprah Winfrey, quantum mystic Deepak Chopra, or Catholic Church leader Pope Benedict-the-Whateverth. Can you tell the difference?

  1. 9/17 Damn you, Pope-a and your stupid fucking hats! Just when I think that no way would the spiritual leader of a billion people wear the same hat as Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl from Toy Story 2, he screws me again!

  2. 10/17 I mixed up Oprah and the Pope’s hats. I figured the Pope wore a black hat at some point a la Father Guido Sarducci from SNL but no his holiness went with the Howdy Doody looking one. What is it with Catholics and ridiculous hats anyway?

  3. These Choprawoo quizzes are so much fun! My results always make me feel surprised, confused, and deeply, deeply depressed about the prospect of our survival as a species all at the same time. 9/17

  4. I’m going to take pride in my much less than perfect score. Do I really want to know that much about these folk? I do feel bad I got the hats wrong. (I was right about the crazy pope hat though.)

  5. As a student of the History of the Soviet Union, I think I must apologize on behalf of Mikhail Gorbachev. The man fucked up his entire country, but he had good intentions. But to give a science award to Deepak Chopra, that’s just not cool!

  6. Wow. That was a LOT harder than last week’s. I think because they’re all, the three of them, avid pushers of nonsense.

    Next week:
    (LDS leader Thomas S.) Monson or (Jon) Ronson>

    or

    Joe, Jenny, or Charlie? A McCarthy tripple-header

  7. “Nobody really knows what a gene is or how it works” LOL alllllrighty then.

    That picture of the pope in the hat is…is… spectacular. He looks so jolly and proud of that bitchin’ red hat.

  8. My score does not define me. Which everyone knows means that I did crappily.

    I have an idea..

    Swayze, Jay-Z or Tom DeLay-Z?

    I tried to put in James Randi…maybe Amaze-Z? I think I like it!!

  9. Meh, 7/17 for me. I’ve got to say, this is one test that I’m happy to score low on, it just means my woo filters are working.

    I am a bit gutted about getting the Futurama question wrong though, considering the amount of Futurama I’ve watched, it’s pretty much unforgivable.
