Here’s the coolest Internet quiz ever! Well, it’s cool because I made it up. I’d been reading a story about the United Nations and the name of the latest Secretary-General came up. It was yet another odd-sounding moniker and I wondered if they picked the next guy for the office based on the strangest name.
I looked back of the historical list of Secretaries-General and realized that only two of the eight had what might be considered a “normal” name. And Yes, by normal I mean according to the standards of an English-speaking, native-born American. Of course, their names aren’t weird to people in their countries of origin.
But you have to admit that they sound awfully similar to names George Lucas might have made up for his Star Wars movies. Thus was born UN Secretary General or Star Wars character?: The Quiz.
Take it and see how you do. All you smarty-pants can brag in the comments. Everyone else can post sheepishly. Don’t worry; we won’t laugh and point.
