Default "Unofficial" weekly banana quiz

Hey everyone !
I've been kicking around the idea of a weekly banana quiz and would like to know how the community feels about it.
I'm not real sure as to how to go about it. I do plan to donate Bananabux and/or other prizes to the first three perfect scores when and if it becomes an official contest. I'm not even sure if this is allowed yet but decided to post anyways because it just seems like so much fun!
Sooo, I'll post this weeks 'Unofficial' quiz and we'll see if it can evolve into an official weekly contest .
A big thanks to Whatever for his help on this !

I missed the seed germination question. Go figure! Some of the possible answers were really funny! I especially liked "Skyhook"

Good job guys!

Glad people are liking it. Later on Ill probably work on the questions page to make it a little more banana themed as well as a few other small things.
