EPZ in the Money, Again

Well, Evil Petting Zoo finished in the money again in the P&H Trivia Tuesday contest, barely grabbing 3rd place with a score of 49. This makes the 4th week in a row we’ve finished in the money, though Kath and I weren’t able to make the first 2 contests. Last week’s 2nd place finish felt good, because it marked the debut of the tiki statue we brought back from New Zealand, which is designed to scare the other teams with its spooky reflective eyes. So far, the reviews are mixed, but he is hanging in there.

The best questions from last week:

1) What year did the Miss America contest begin? [1921]

2) Who was the last ruler in the line of Ptolemy in Egypt? [Cleopatra]

3) What is Paul McCartney’s first name? [James]

4) Other than New Year’s Day, what is the only other U.S. federal holiday that can fall on the 1st of the month? [Labor Day]

6) Which famous explorer fought in both sides of the U.S. Civil War? [Henry Morton Stanley]

7) Which native Tennessean held all state and federal offices available during his lifetime? [Andrew Johnson]

The questions tonight were just about as good. Some of the best ones include:

1) What is the first name of Anne Frank’s father? [Otto]

2) Which country hosted the 1994 World Cup? [USA]

3) Who was the first natively-born Israeli Prime Minister? [Rabin]

4) Who was the first U.S. President to appear on a coin? [Lincoln]

5) Which U.S. President was the only one elected to two non-consecutive terms? [Grover Cleveland]

Evil Petting Zoo will be asking the questions on April 14th. It remains to see how many folks will show up on Valentine’s Day to provide trivia answers in order to chase a few bucks.
