Dang, I am a Tiki Barber fan according to the quiz. I started out strong, with a purchase at a Thrift Store (why yes, that does explain my clothes). After that it was just like my college love life 48 "no's" in a row.

I do have a question, in reference to #65. Would a person, hypothetically now, receive extra points for "Knowing" Polynesian Pop? Um, like in the biblical sense? Just hypotheticaly speaking, of course.

MT, wow what a great quiz. I'm all the way into "Tiki Freak" territory but refuse to take a vacation!

BTW - For question #65, do I have to take the point? I've technically never met myself...

Fun quiz! My score was not as high as I thought it would be though. I have to say that some of the 'yes' answers here are based on one's financial reach. Have I travelled to a tiki event? Yeah, I would love to.

But my philosophy is:

This is mostly a culture of the mind, and to you all I say, YOU'RE ONLY AS TIKI AS YOU FEEL, AND I FEEL LIKE A F*%CKIN' TIKI FREAK BABY!!!!! HOW 'BOUT YOU??!!

Praise be to Denny, Baxter, Drasnin, Trader Vic, Mai Kai, Yma Sumac, Arthur Lyman, and all the other great people and places that formed the foundation of this great....thing. And to all you other fine people out there that are workin hard to find all the Tiki joints in your area and all the areas you visit outside your home base. And all you out there that are consulting Intoxica and Grog Log and stayiing true to all the original Tiki cocktail recipies. All of you that obsessively comb the flea markets, thrift stores, and trash bins looking to un-earth some lost tiki mugs, records, or other assorted gems.


Let your Tiki Freak flag fly baby!!

Aloha!

Neither, I'm a "Chiki" tiki. Ok, who's a "Randy" tiki?

14 no's - Not bad for a Canadian. The saddest one I had to say no to was 'been to a tiki bar in the past month?'
Oh, and of course, not 'KNOWING' Polynesian Pop in person. That is tragic!

I AM A GOD! & just a couple of points from freak.

i'm w/ whoever raised the point about many of the questions are dependent upon one's financial situation. also, many questions are seemingly californian-friendly (but of course that's kinda the nature of tiki). also, do you really have to be a shag fan &/or post a lot on tiki central to be an avid tiki enthusiast?

other potential questions:

were tikis incorporated into your wedding?

have you ever travelled to other countries to visit tiki bars?

do you hold an annual luau?

do you have a tiki-related term as a favorite search on ebay?

do you have dreams about tikis?

great quiz! & a good indicator of tiki interest.

cheers,
tiki chris
