pop (culture) quiz

Here's a fairly easy Harry Potter quiz I wrote for this morning's radio show. I used the book synopses on the Harry Potter Lexicon site to check my facts. The two listeners who competed ended the game in a 9 - 9 tie, which means there were 12 questions neither could answer. Look under the "invisibility cloak" for the answers. Post your final score in the comments section.

that was a really easy quiz. i can't imagine that anyone who has read the books could possibly forget any of those answers but for someone who had only seen the movies, then i suppose it might be a trifle more challenging.
