This week, we tested Peter Dyakowski on Lou Reed, McCain pizzas, provincial politics and more. Can you beat his 80 per cent?

Welcome back to the Maclean’s Quiz, a diversion designed by Terrance Balazo to test your trivia skills. Good luck, and remember: no Internet assistance allowed.

We’ve also invited the Maclean’s Genius, Peter Dyakowski, to take the quiz. Dyakowski is a lineman with the CFL’s Hamilton Ticats who also bested the competition in CBC’s Canada’s Smartest Person contest in 2012. And we don’t call him our genius for nothing—he solved the viral Singapore brain teaser that had been stumping the Internet. (And during his workout, no less!)

This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything from Lou Reed and Herbie Hancock’s favourite Canadian musicians, to McCain pizzas and prohibition. He scored 80 per cent.

  1. Would you mind fixing the link to the July 10 quiz…the Lou Reed goes directly to the Anne Hathaway.
