Guess Who's Coming To Dinner

See the difference?

Great, really sneaky Company Mascot Quiz sent to me by my brother. I did not do as well as I expected.

I got 18/20. These are really persnickety; I mean, who cares if Tony the Tiger wears a red or blue napkin around his neck.

I feel so defeated, I only got 16 out of 20. Regardless, I love these brand quizzes. Kind of makes me wish they'd do an abbreviated Trivial Pursuits for people in our industry. Debbie, surely you can drop a hint to someone.

how did the travelocity gnome end up in the same quiz as all of the other legitimate brands? the geico lizard also seemed out of place--but seriously, the travelocity gnome?

17-20! Actually, the ones I got right I knew immediately. Is it because I enjoy details as a child, or was I brain washed? Scary...

While interesting, I think this misses the point a bit. As the above commenter mentioned, whether the napkin is blue or red, we know it's Tony the Tiger. If the options had been Tony or Tigger (from Winnie the Pooh) and we got it wrong, then Kellogg's has a problem. Or, to keep it to corporate mascots they could have done Tony the Tiger and Chester Cheetah (Cheetohs).
