See if you can beat my miserable 2 out of 10

Meh, I guess I can live with 50/50.

"You scored 5 out of a possible 10

You're not quite so much of a goostrumnoodle [fool] as you might be, but you're still two ants short of a picnic. As the Aussies would say, the wheel is turning, but the hamster is dead."

I love that my hamster is dead. Laughing

3/10

"You jobbernowl [blockhead]! But don't be too mumpish [depressed in spirits] and try not to gowl [weep bitterly] – just start studying your dictionary."

It's because it mentioned some unsavory definitions for "broggle" right away, and I couldn't keep my wits about me. Or my laughter inside.

The Magnetic Fields have some amazing songs. Sweet guitar, lilting vocals, dark lyrics. Bwa ha.

Pffft! My 50% was totally random, I didn't know a one of them, and I like to think I have a reasonably good vocabulary.

I got 4 out of 10 and every single one of those was nothing more than a guess.
