Quiz Description

I haven't really been active on this site for a while, but this seems like a good time to come back and reboot my Universal Stumpers series. The way these work is I've been a part-time trivia host at a small venue for years, and most weeks I have a question or two that stumps everyone. I thought I'd give them another go here. Keep in mind, the quiz these are taken from has a progressive points system, so these are almost always the higher point questions, and generally more difficult examples of those, so they don't reflect the overall difficulty of said quiz. Beyond having a 0% get rate when I initially asked them, there is no category or theme to any of these.
