Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What is Bugs Bunny's vegetable of choice?

Answer: Carrot

"Eh, What's up, Doc?" Bugs Bunny was often portrayed munching his favorite food, the carrot. The irony of this was that the man of a thousand voices who recited the dialogue of the "wascally wabbit," Mel Blanc, *hated* the taste of carrots. But while Mel tried other crunchy foods for a time, in the end, chewing carrots was the only way to make the ideal crunchy sound when portraying Bugs Bunny in cartoons.

2. The video game character Sonic is which of the following types of animal?

Answer: Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog was first introduced in his self-titled game for the SEGA Genesis in 1991 and shortly after, due to his popularity, he became the mascot of SEGA gaming. With his super-fast speed, Sonic is usually able to blast through platforming levels. Later versions of the game introduced Tails, his sidekick, who was also a two-tailed fox, and Knuckles the Echidna.

As SEGA consoles fell by the wayside, "Sonic" series games started to release on other consoles by Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony.

3. 'A Prairie Home Companion' was a radio variety show created and hosted by which military-sounding writer?

Answer: Garrison Keillor

Keillor started the show in 1974. It featured musics, skits, and the 'News from Lake Wobegon' monologue.
The show's longevity led to a movie by Robert Altman in 2006 for which Keillor wrote the script. Its 40th anniversary was marked by a three-hour live broadcast on July 5, 2014.

4. What rather alarming name is given to a necklace worn high around the neck?

Answer: choker

As its name suggests, a choker is a close-fitting necklace meant to be worn around the neck. This particular style of jewellery has been around for millennia, and was originally worn to protect the throat, not just as an ornament. In the West chokers first became fashionable during the Renaissance, then fell out of favour for a long time, and went back in fashion in the late 19th century. Alexandra of Denmark, wife of Edward, Prince of Wales (later Edward VII of the United Kingdom), was often portrayed wearing magnificent chokers (allegedly because she wanted to hide a scar on her neck), contributing to their popularity in the early 20th century.

In recent years, a number of celebrities have been photographed wearing chokers at high-profile events. Chokers can be made of a variety of materials - not just pearls, diamonds and other gems, but also velvet, lace or leather; they can be wide, or as narrow as a simple ribbon, like the one worn by Edouard Manet's otherwise naked "Olympia". All the incorrect answers refer to styles of necklace: the torc is a stiff neck ring open at the front, the bib has a large front section that covers the upper part of the chest, and the lariat is a long, rope-like necklace without a clasp.

5. What clothing article comes in rectangular, triangular, and square types?

6. Dizzy, Jaunty, Scrappy and Sappy are all examples of what?

Answer: Rejected names for Disney's seven dwarfs

Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy and Dopey are well known around the world as Walt Disney's iconic seven dwarfs, from his 1937 animated film, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". However many more names were considered during the development stages of this version of the Brothers Grimm's classic fairytale of the same name.

Indeed as Disney wanted names that fit each dwarf's distinct personality, a list of possible names was compiled, which included those detailed in the question.

7. What is the surname of the scientist who turns into The Incredible Hulk?

Answer: Banner

Jack Kirby and Stan Lee created the Hulk in 1962. Since then, he and his human alter ego Bruce Banner have gone through many permutations, including skin color (grey to green and back), intelligence (the Hulk has retained Banner's mentality in some instances, while being an ignorant brute in others), a change of first name for a major television series (from Bruce to David) and a postmodern reboot for the 21st century.

10. Australian designer Aheda Zanetti created which of these clothing items?

Answer: Burkini

Aheda Zanetti is an Australian designer of Lebanese descent. She was inspired to create the burkini when she realised that Muslim women did not have appropriate sportswear. The burkini is a type of swimwear that covers the entire body except for the face, hands and feet, helping traditional women to participate in sport without compromising on their modesty.

The name itself is a combination of the words burka and bikini with the burka being a traditional Muslim garment for women.
