Well, the trivia team I play on for the Tuesday Night Trivia at the P&H Cafe in midtown Memphis came in first place last night, winning the team $101. I think our comeback and final score surprised everyone on the team, but we’ll definitely take it. Goodness knows we worked hard enough to come up with some of the answers. Special kudos to Matt and Chris for some of the critical sports questions.
Here are my top three trivia questions from that night (and it was really hard to narrow it down to three):
1) Which two US Presidents have both first and last names that contain two identical letters in succession?
Now as for who probably can’t spell or pronounce either of these US Presidents, my bet is the current President, George W. Bush.
2) What is the name of the holiday being celebrated during the parade scene near the end of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off?
Von Stuben Day, which kinda makes no sense, since Ferris talks about graduating in a few months and Von Stuben Day is held on September 17th. But, oh well.
3) The original Magic 8 Ball had how many different sides that could come up to answer a question posed to it?
The answer is 20, and the internal polygon is a icosahedron.
OK, and here is a bonus question: How many squiggles (loops) are there on the top of a Hostess Cupcake?
