Quiz Description

After the recent LL championships, it was suggested that several prominent LLamas whose live performance fell shockingly short of their online achievements had "angered gypsies" on their way to Las Vegas. This Alpaca quiz deals with notably hostile gypsies, or other famous incidents where people made the mistake of pissing off the wrong fortune-teller.

(OBLIGATORY DISCLAIMER: it should probably be pointed out that in real life, the preferred term for members of the ethnic group formerly known as "gypsies" is Roma/Romani. However, since virtually all of these questions involve a fictional curse-spewing stock character that probably never existed outside of literature/movies/TV, and which bears little actual resemblance to the real Romani, the use of the term "gypsy" is used here deliberately).
