Can you tell fact from Scooby Snack?

An online quiz gives you ten crime synopses and asks you to determine whether they really happened or whether they were 'Scooby Doo' episodes.

Zoinks! Hanna-Barbera, 1969

Making the viral rounds today, thanks largely in part to a Boing Boing nod, is this groovy Mental Floss quiz: Scooby Doo: Ripped from the Headlines? Your task in the ten-question examination is to read a brief synopsis of a crime and determine whether it actually happened or if it was the plot of a Scooby Doo episode. Surprisingly, none of them involve pot busts.

A few of them are pretty easy. Others, not so much.

Me? I scored 8 out of 10. In both instances where I missed a question, it was a Scooby Doo plot synopsis that I mistook for reality. Take that as you will.
