Trivia 1/15

trivia 1/15
DID YOU KNOW...

MOST RAINDROPS ARE ROUND OR DOUGHNUT SHAPED—NOT “RAINDROP” SHAPED.


1. In what classic comic strip would I find Joe Btfsplk, a gloomy character who has a cloud hanging over his head wherever he goes ?
2. What business did the title character start in the film Forrest Gump ?
3. What was rock star Dion's (Dion & the Belmonts) last name
4. Name that Dish;
It's name translates to"carry me up." and many who taste this dish assume the unspoken continuation must surely be "to heaven." It's a light composition of sponge cake or ladyfingers dipped in a coffee-marsala mixture, then layered with mascarpone and grated chocolate.
5. What does the name "Mitsubishi" translate to in English ?

6. What fruit comes in Damson and Mirabelle varieties ?
7. Remember Sgt. Preston of the Yukon ? What was his canine companion's name ?
8. Who's missing ?
Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and ______ _____ starred in the 1986 comedy film, The Three Amigos .

TRUTH !!
The American Indians fashioned a special pipe with a forked end, designed to fit into the nostrils. The smoke was then inhaled through these ends by short, violent snorts. The name of the pipe was "Tubak- thus our word, "tobacco".
