Welcome to yet another edition of the Urban Legend General Knowledge Quiz. Unlike the other competitions we have had where the company offers a prize, this one, at the insistence of our legal department, I’m running alone. Because the prize I’m offering is…
Wait. Before I tell you the prize, let’s do the qualifying round.
Arrange the following in order of importance:
- Carbon Dioxide
If you got the order right, then you can proceed to the next stage. The in this stage, if you get the answers right, then you win a date with Grace Nakimera. Don’t worry about the fact that she doesn’t know anything about this date. I will take care of all that. Just answer the questions.

3. Who won the Uganda Vs Kenya football match that is slated for this coming Saturday?

d) We extend a hand of brotherhood and African love to all Kenyans everywhere except the members of their football team the Harambee Stars: those ones are going down hard.
Now, check your answers. If you got two correct then congratulations! You win a date with Grace Nakimera paid for by me, Baz, at the Serena Hotel itself, and I mean the one in Kampala CBD, not the one in made of iron sheets in Bweyos. That one is called Salina Woteli, and Grace can’t go there. She will get fleas in her hairpiece.
If you got ALL three answers correct then even more congratulations. You win marriage to Grace.
However, you got all the answers wrong so you win jack shit. Too bad. They have reopened Makerere at least. Genda osome.
