Is there a specific name for the McSweeneys-type quizzes / lists where the reader is asked to identify which category an item belongs in?

I'm referring to lists like this:

http://www.mcsweeneys.net/links/lists/21meyer.html
http://www.mcsweeneys.net/links/lists/10king.html

Is there a specific name for this type of game / quiz / list?

Boringly, I think it's a "matching question," in which you are asked to match-up terms A1-A10 with category B1 or B2. (e.g.)

Nothing will ever beat the Brunching Shuttlecock's "Porn Star or My Little Pony?". I can't actually find a link to it (brunching.com appears to be undergoing renovations), but I recall doing rather less well than random chance would declare possible.

I think on "Brunching" they were called "This or That".

In the game You Don't Know Jack, these are called "Dis or Dat"s

It's Never Lurgi, lore will know if the Brunching Shuttlecocks' stuff is still on the internets somewhere.
