ARCHIVED TRIVIA

"365 AMAZING TRIVIA FACTS FOR 2009"

Source: Page-A-Day / Workman Publishing

Every Tuesday is a Trivia Tuesday on AmericaJR.com!!

THIS WEEK'S QUESTIONS

1. Which country's rebels were the first to call crude homemade explosives Molotov cocktails?

2. At what weight does a scrod become a cod?

3. Who was the first comic strip artist to win a Pulitzer Prize?

4. What is the literal meaning of tiramisu, the delicious Italian dessert?

5. What famous British writer kept a tame bear as a pet while he was a student at Trinity College at Cambridge?

THIS WEEK'S ANSWERS

1. Finland's. The Finnish resistance used the improvised gasoline-filled bottle-bombs against Russians tanks during the winter of 1939-40, naming them for Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Molotov, the Soviet foreign minister.

2. At 2 1/2 pounds.

3. Garry Trudeau, creator of Doonesbury, in 1975. He won the coveted prize for Editorial Cartooning.

4. Tirami su means "pick me up" in Italian. Using the phrase for the dessert no doubt was inspired by its two caffeine-laden ingredients, espresso and cocoa.

5. George Gordon, Lord Byron. He apparently did it in defiance -- because college rules barred dogs as pets but didn't mention bears.
