  1. JLThorpe says:

    Nice. I got 9 correct. Only missed questions 6 (I guessed Mooch) and 10 (I guessed lying-cheating SOB).

  2. Shifra says:

    Well, JL, I admit, #6 was a tough call, maybe even open to debate 🙂 So, you really got 10 correct 🙂

  3. aardvark says:

    9. Missed 3 (guess Mrs. Fletcher), and 6 (also guessed Mooch). Can I stay?

  4. houstongracie says:

    Fun quiz!!! I missed #3 and answered Urkel. I’ll make my excuse that I didn’t find Tammy until 03/09 so maybe she had moved on to Urkel by then and I missed the whole Hello Kitty President phase. LOL!!!

  5. Alain41 says:

    I knew it. I knew there was going to be a test from the first show of the year.

    But this test was unannounced, and the dog ate my homework, global warming got in my eyes, they called me a rascist, waaaa. Wait, I got 10 out of 11. Never mind.

    • Shifra says:


      Aard, you still got a top score 🙂
      Chuck, if LI uses *Silky Pony* — she took it from Tammy, just saying 🙂
      HG, good excuse (unlike Alain41’s — see above 🙂 )

  6. careless says:

    I have test anxiety so therefore I should be exempt from this test and that should qualify me for free therapy Shifra. Besides, they almost seemed like trick questions. I’d like to vote for a new program: No TAM Left Behind. (not supported with TAM Taxpayer Dollars)

    • LucyLadley says:

      Careless, so FUNNY!!!! Test Anxiety! I can relate! Also, No TAM Left Behind, FUNNY! Shifra, I missed 3, I guess I have marginal listening issues. I am bound & determined to improve my score with your next quiz! I will request that “The Careless Bill”, (No TAM Left Behind) goes in effect immediately. Hugs to you Shifra, Many Many Thanks!

    • houstongracie says:

      Do we get a “voucher” to a new TAM school for this program???

  7. morecowbell says:

    For extra points, here are a 5 more.. no answer key, figure it out yourselves.. this ain’t public school.

    What is Tammy’s favorite song, played often during the show a while back, from the movie The Sound of Music ??

    What was the name of short film where Tammy played the role of Diana Moon Glampers (and she looked fabulous) based on the Kurt Vonegann story, Harrison Bergeron ??

    In the anecdote (my favorite) of the encounter with the “homeless” man in stairwell of the Santa Monica parking lot, what non politically correct (but accurate) name did Tammy use to address him?

    What was the last name of Tammy’s former producer, ‘Don’, when she was on terrestrial radio ?

    Sydney, Tammy’s furry child, had to have an appendage surgically removed. What did Sydney have removed ?

    Have Fun.. I did.

  8. gkin31 says:

    I got 9! Missed question 10 and 3. Im proud to have the title of alpha TAM 🙂

  9. sandyl says:

    I should be exempt from this test as well. After all the words Quiz and Test bring up bad memories, offend me, and make me feel bad. We shall not speak of this again. 🙂

    P.S. Got 9 tho, becuz even tho duct tape is passed around in chat, we also spend a lot of time talking about pie; and in all fairness, both help me deal with libs. Plus pie is more user friendly. 🙂

  10. Karan says:

    That was a great quiz; I enjoyed testing my knowledge.

    • Shifra says:

      So, Karan, whadja get ? 🙂

      Careless, Puh-leeze, you wrote a 250+ page novel (The Dudley Files — very funny read!) and you can’t take an eleven question quiz? Give me a break 🙂

      Morecowbell – some of your questions are unfair. Why? Because I don’t know all the answers…. that’s why 🙂 Don’s last name escapes me, darn it… OK, now you have to provide the answers….

      sandyl, re: pie, maybe it helps *us* deal with Libs by eating pie, making us feel better. I think you misread the question. Or maybe I was unclear in stating the question. Hmmm, no, on second thought, nothing wrong with my question. It is your fault… 🙂

      Lucy and gkin, 🙂

  11. cactuswren says:

    Fun Quiz Shifra. Your the best! I tweeted “i’m an alpha tam” cuz the questions I missed *could* be debatable 😉 Missed 3, 6 and 8 =) I call “trick” questions =)

  12. dingohead says:

    I got 8 right. Missed the first 3. I knew Babe too! Guessed pie on #2 and Urkel on #3. I do seem to recall the hello kitty thing. Anyway, fun quiz. Thanks.

  13. gingersnap says:

    Okay, so I am embarrased to say I missed 3! Nooo Nooo Noo, yes I did. 2,3 and 6. I do think 6 should be all of the above, LOL. What fun, Thanks Shifra!! and by the way We Love Us.

  14. BarbaraM says:

    Thank your Shifra for letting me miss 3 and still be an Alpha Tam!
    It was a fun test, and you were sweet to put it together for us.

  15. Foreverautumn says:

    I got 10 out of 11! I’m an ALPHA TAM!!! I only missed number 3 – I guessed Urkel.

  16. Trish S says:

    Could have sworn John Edwards was the Breck Boy! Also, I believe the Hello Kitty President was before my TAM time:) Fun quiz, Ms. NYJOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  17. flaggman says:

    Wow do I feel dumb – I only got 7/11. I didn’t know her fave movie. Missed #2. Thought first nickname was Mrs. Fletcher. I guessed Mooch for the head explosions. Great fun though!

    • Shifra says:

      Flaggman, you are *still* an Alpha Tam. Special Dispensation for Canadians 🙂

      cactuswren – yes, I already admitted that #6 was “tricky” and open to debate. (Hey, ya can’t make a test too easy! Standards *must* be maintained! 🙂

      dingohead, BarbaraM, Foreverautumn, Trish 🙂

    • Juanita says:

      Join the club flaggman 🙁 I got 7/11 also. Missed #2/pie, #3/urkel, #6/mooch, #8/average bear. Thanks Shifra, this was fun. Guess I’ll have to stop doing chores during the show and pay closer attention huh? ;JD

  18. Runnyonempty says:

    HA! That was fun… I missed a couple or three.

  19. dr4ensic says:

    11!!! WINNING!! WINNING!!

  20. LJZumpano says:

    Shifra, I couldn’t find two sharpened No. 2 pencils to bring for the test, so you’ll have to take my word that I got an 8. Lots of fun ♥

  21. Teri says:

    argh ! it will not let me take the quiz. i click everything on and a QUIZ thingy pops up in the left part of the page and does nothing…

  22. Shifra says:

    Teri, it is *not* an on-line thing. It’s a “self-test” with answers at the end.
    dr4ensic and Runnyonempty, *impressive* 🙂
    LJ – A+ for creativity in making up excuse. And houstongracie, please don’t mention “hanging chads” — I’m in no mood for a lawsuit 🙂
    gingersnap — 🙂

  23. naga5 says:

    as an affirmative action student, that would be 15 out of 11, which would make a constitutional lecturer!

  24. archangel61 says:

    9 out of 11. Not bad considering I spent most of the evening studying for my blood test tomorrow morning!

  25. TX Soldier254 says:

    Both #4 and #7 were Easy questions for me, I know Tammy supports the UN so I chose;
    #4(b) Peace Treaty-Pizza
    And of course we ALL know
    #7(e) Move to Central Texas

  26. ffigtree says:

    Meeeow! I’m an Alpha TAM!

  27. trevy says:

    12 Tammy’s boyfriend’s name?


  28. Shifra says:

    ffigtree, of course!!! We already knew that! 🙂

    trevy got me thinking: Yes, Bonus Question #12: In 1995, Tammy did a hilarious April Fools’ Day joke on the air, told her listeners that she is *really* married to a guy, an LAPD cop. What was the name of Tammy’s “husband-cop” ? 999 TAM points for this one. (Full Disclosure – 1GopKid told me this one)

  29. dennisl59 says:

    Bonus Question #13:

    What is Tammy’s favorite liquid refreshment(s) during her Independent,
    Conservative and Unruly Interwebtubes (via TalkStreamLive) streaming

    a) Mojito
    b) Chocolate Milkshake
    c) Double Expresso

  30. Shifra says:

    Darn it, Dennisl59, I should’ve collaborated with you and morecowbell !!! LOL !

  31. otlset says:

    Dang. The test was obviously culturally biased! You must therefore proclaim me a Tammy expert anyway, or I’ll lose self-esteem! Waaaah!

  32. Ben says:

    got 9 right without looking. Made me fell good. Thanks.

  33. sandyl says:

    Having read all posts thus far, I am asking Shifra if we can grade on a curve and declare everyone an Alpha Tam, with TROPHIES FOR EVERYONE? 😉

  34. Shifra says:

    sandyl, since we *do* live in a multi-cultural, sensitive-to-hyphenated-group-feelings environment, maybe we should redistribute the grades, so that Ben and dr4ensic’s, and everyone else who scored high, will have points taken off… we don’t want you or otlset to feel bad 🙂

  35. Charles_TX says:

    I don’t know – number 6 was a trick question because all of the answers have caused Tammy head explosions in the past. Other than that, my total was 9. “Hello Kitty President” is really going back in time.

  36. mediachristian says:

    Finally saw the questions…my first instinct was correct…I “deemed” myself to have passed. Because, of course, I had to pass the quiz so I could find out what was in it!

    Friday’s countdown is 214 (April 6)


  37. laney77777 says:

    Hi Shifra…Thanks for making me feel welcome when I get to go on chat, which is not very often, I am usually sleeping…The last time I was on a long haul trip in my truck to a place called Onslow. I picked up chat on my utc smart phone, but couldn’t send comments. Great quiz, Thanks…Frank.

  38. Shifra says:

    So, Frank, what was your score? 🙂 And, no “deeming,” please. 🙂 (see mediachristian’s comment, above LOL )

  39. TigerAim says:

    I enjoyed the quiz Shifra! I got 9 of 11 right. I also like the additional fun comments, trivia, and quizzes from TAMs! Thanks folks!
