Wodehouse-related quizzery

Me likes this one. Although I did have to rewrite the descriptive text a little, because it was so poorly expressed.

HASH(0x8d995bc)

You are Reginald Jeeves. You always have great advice and are cool and cunning. Even though you're always the one who has to do all the dirty work, people respect you and come to you when there is a problem. Your positive characteristics include the way you speak, quoting many authors such as Shakespeare and romantic poets. You have impeccable dress sense and can save others from making huge mistakes.

Which Jeeves and Wooster Character are you most like? brought to you by Quizilla


In related news, it transpires that Ask Jeeves are actually handing our man his notice, and becoming just plain 'Ask'. This, however, is undoubtedly a Good Thing. They have been making him wear silly hats in connection with seasonal festivities for years, and also generally going round perpetuating the misconception that he is a butler. Three cheers for his liberation from such undignified nonsense.

EDIT: Also, since when did Word crashing cause all the icons on the right-hand side of my desktop only to move one inch to the left??? Word crashes regularly under Windows ME, but that's a new one on me!

Yes, because as we all know, Shakespeare was an author and not a playwright.

:P Those quiz answers always seem to have been written by fools! :)

Yes, that was one of the bits I left from the original text.

Ah right. The use of language by these people is rather shocking at times...But not as shocking as a recent report that A-level students have been unable to spell Shakespeare's name correctly, EVEN when it is printed on the paper!

To be fair, even he varied the spelling a fair bit.

Very true. As far as I know, though, "Shakespeare" is the common spelling that's used in schools these days, and when it says "Shakespeare Studies 1" at the top of the exam paper and the students come up with some utterly bemusing variations of the name, it does make one wonder how thick people are these days... :)
