'Mad Money' Culture Quiz

Jim Cramer endeavors to educate and entertain " Mad Money " viewers and readers not only about financial markets, but also about language, literature and politics. Take this week's "Mad Money" culture quiz and see what Cramer has to say about hubris. Check back every Friday for a new set of twists and turns.

(You'll find the answers at the end of the quiz.)

  2. invest your retirement money
  3. return twice-worn clothes
  4. buy socks

2. During his segment on riding the rails ( Koppers (KOP) and Trinity (TRN)), Cramer appropriated a quote from a famous political address to this:

  1. "Charity toward none, malice toward all." -- Abe Lincoln, 1865
  2. "I am a Krispy Kreme (KKD) donut." -- JFK, 1963
  3. "A house divided against itself cannot stand, unless it has Sears (SHLD) Craftsman tools." -- Abe Lincoln, 1858
  4. "There is filth on the cold linoleum floor, and it must be scraped up with the muck rake." -- Teddy Roosevelt, 1906

  1. Macbeth
  2. The House of Atreus

  3. United Technologies (UTX) CEO George David
  4. Diana Ross

5. After IBM (IBM) reported earnings, Cramer took CEO Sam Palmisano off his "Wall of Shame" and:

  1. put him in the Staten Island Mall
  2. gave him Oreos and no milk
  3. put him on probation
