2. What was the penalty for John T. Scopes when he was convicted for teaching evolutionary theory in 1925?
3. What is the English for "Menage a Trois" ?
4. Which of the US presidents gave the shortest inaugural address, at 135 words ?
5. When it comes to the "Total Regular Season games played" NHL leader-board,
where does Wayne Gretzky fit in, with 1,487; #1, #4, #7, #10, or #14 ?
6. What movie ends with the introduction of a litter of five "Dronkeys" ?
7. Name that Show;

8. Name the College football "Bowl" game was played in the Louisiana Superdome from 1975 until Katrina in 2005 .

3. "Family of Three"
4. GEORGE WASHINGTON
5. fourteenth
6. SHREK II
7. YOU BET YOUR LIFE

CRAP !!
The series, which amounted to 32 separate Campbell Soup canvases, is now synonymous with the Pop Art movement that Warhol helped make famous in the 1960's.
Campbell's was quite happy with all the free publicity !

1. nermal--Should have gotten this but didn't.
2. a fine of $100--nope
3. "Family of Three"--I knew what it meant, but not the literal translation.
4. GEORGE WASHINGTON--This was my first guess, but then I second-guessed myself and said Calvin Coolidge ("Silent Cal")
5. fourteenth--Got it (guessed)
6. SHREK II--Got it (loved the movie!)
7. YOU BET YOUR LIFE--Got it
8. the sugar bowl--Got it
CRAP !!--Got it
