Do Truly Erudite People Even Do Stupid Internet Quizzes?

Your result for The Are You Truly Erudite? Test...

True English Nerd

You scored 82 erudition!

Not only do you know your subjects from your objects and your definite from your indefinite articles, but you've got quite a handle on the literature and the history of the language as well. Huzzah, and well done! The English snobs of Boston salute you.

I wish to point out that the person I stole this from got a (presumably respectable) score of 71 and was told "You may have missed a few questions, but if you keep your studies up and stay away from genre fiction, we'll have you ready for Stanford in no time!" Well, screw you, English snobs! Genre fiction got me where I am today!


  1. A little annoyed by the quiz, but that's pretty much par for the course with these things, I guess. I also scored 82.

  2. Heck, I only took it in the first place because I was annoyed. :)

  3. That kind of resembles you in the picture.

  4. I'd never wear that dress, though.

  5. "True English Nerd" - I would have expected nothing less. :)

    What a great illustration!

  6. Betty in a dress?! I haven't seen that since senior prom.

    I scored a 79, but they don't have a picture of a man in a kilt.

  7. I thought erudite was a kind of coal.

  8. I believe that's anthracite.

  9. I got the same category, anyway (not sure about the score). Nice picture, but I wasn't sure that I really *wanted* the English snobs of Boston saluting me.
