Trivia- 1/6

1. who was the girlfriend of cartoon hero underdog?
2. just before her untimely death, who was described by critics as "a cheap imitation of marilyn monroe"?
3.to what singer was actress carrie fisher married briefly?
4. who played the title role in "the bride of frankenstien" opposite boris karloff?
5. which classic tv comedy show of the 60's featured a regular awarding of "the fickle finger of fate" statuette?
6. what city is home to the famous capotilie hill?
in the bullring, the matador's cape is red to make the bull charge.
1. pretty polly purebred (??)
3. paul simon (??)
the truth is that the color of the cape doesn't upset the bull at all. the expression, "to see red", comes from a misunderstanding of what the bull can see......like most mammals, bulls are color-blind. it's the flapping and waving of the matador's cape that irritates the bull.


Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I knew numbers 1 (Sweet Polly Purebred), 2, 4 (Elsa Lanchester), 5, and crap! That is the most I've gotten so far, and I'm usually pretty good at these things.
