Trivia 4/2

trivia 4/2
DID YOU KNOW ...
The CDC estimates that 248,000 Americans die prematurely due to obesity and considers obesity as the number two cause of preventable death in the US (the #1 cause is ............ what ?).

1. what's the potent ingredient in grog?
2. which animal is the largest in the cat family?
3. can you name the tune whose refrain starts out "i'm a poor little lamb
who has lost it's way,
Baa, Baa, Baaa.."
4. what was the name of the host of the howdy doody show?
5. who was the first athlete to be pictured on a wheaties box?
6. can you name the type of bird featured in "the rime of the ancient
mariner?
7. can you name the comic strip whose characters included the dragon lady?
8. name the product hyped with the catch-phrase, "when it rains, it pours".

TRUTH OR CRAP ??
for the filming of "the wizard of oz", toto earned a higher salary than did
the actors playing munchkins.

1. rum
2.THE SIBERIAN TIGER
3. THE WIFFENPOOF SONG
4. BUFFALO BOB
5. lou gehrig
6. AN ALBATROSS
7. terry and the pirates
8. MORTON SALT

TRUTH !!
toto received $100 a week (not bad for a dog) a hefty sum compared to the
$50 a week the munchkins were paid.
but it was less than judy garland's take-home pay of $500 per week. judy
made far less than any of the other principle players. ray bolger, who
played the scarecrow, made ten times judy's salary.
