Think you know your politics? Think you know your Australian film and television? Think you know em both? Well, if that’s the case, then this is the quiz for you!

If you don’t that’s also completely fine, just try your hand and see how you go at picking whether these quotes are from former Prime Minister John Howard, or acclaimed Corowa product and famous Australian actor John Howard.

Take your guesses and add em up at the end!

  1. You people are morons! All of you, pig ignorant!
  2. The philosopher Voltaire once said that`doctors prescribe medicines of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less in human beings of whom they know nothing
  3. The believer’s cross is no longer any and every kind of suffering, sickness, or tension, the bearing of which is demanded. The believer’s cross must be, like his Lord’s, the price of his social nonconformity. It is not, like sickness or catastrophe, an inexplicable, unpredictable suffering; it is the end of the path freely chosen after counting the cost. It is not, like Luther’s or Thomas Muntzer’s or Zinzendorf’s or Kierkegaard’s cross, an inward wrestling of the sensitive soul with self and sin; it is the social reality of representing in an unwilling world the Order to come.
  4. I accept that climate change is a challenge, I accept the broad theory about global warming. I am sceptical about a lot of the more gloomy predictions.
  5. Be careful! Protect the assets!
  6. “We are down 30,000 units of gasoline, 19 canisters of nitro, 12 assault bikes, 7 pursuit vehicles: the deficit mounts, and now sir, you have us stuck in a quagmire!”
  7. We do what we have to to survive.
  8. I’d like to be seen as an average Australian bloke. I can’t think of… I can’t think of a nobler description of anybody than to be called an average Australian bloke.
  9. I don’t think there’s any reason on Earth why people should have access to automatic and semiautomatic weapons unless they’re in the military or in the police.

How did you go?

  1. Thought it was the PM lashing some anti-war protestors in regards to his war crimes. Wrong, that’s a fired up Bob Jelly from the famous show SeaChange. Side note, god damn that Diver Dan was something wasn’t he….
  2. Yep, that’s the great on-screen talent that is John Howard. Signing off as Dr Frank Campion.
  3. Well done if you got to the end of whatever the fuck that was. You’d be well within your rights to assume that was one of John Howard’s characters, but, that was the Former Prime Minister John Howard on a roll.
  4. No, that’s the actor, that’s Little Johnny, the man who was a leader of the Liberal Party admitting climate change is a thing….
  5. Negative Gearing? Franking Credits? Tax cuts? Wrong on all the above, that’s the People Eater sending out orders in Mad Max: Fury Road.
  6. That’s the People Eater again! I know it sounds like the Prime Minister lighting up Tony Blair or George W, but that’s one of the great quotes from the man known as the People Eater.
  7. John Howard the actor.
  8. Yeah that was an easy one – the former PM trying to appear like an average Aussie battler.
  9. Another easy one, probably the easiest of them all. That was John Howard aka the man who took away our guns.
