Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Strike an attitude; the Kennedy matriarch

Answer: Pose Rose

To pose literally means to strike an attitude or hold a position, as for a photograph. Figuratively, it means to pretend to be someone or something you are not.

The Normans introduced to England the name Roese or Rohese formed from the Germanic elements hrod "fame" and heid "kind, sort, type". Despite this meaning (roughly type of fame), the name soon became associated with the Latin rosa (the name of the flower). The contemporary form and usage of the name dates to the Nineteenth Century revival. Rose can also be a surname, as in the British composer and bandleader David Rose.

Rose Kennedy nee Fitzgerald, July 22 1890 to January 22 1995, was the mother of three U.S. senators (John "Jack," Robert "Bobby" and Edward "Teddy") and a U.S. ambassador to Ireland (Jean). When he was elected president in 1960, Jack chose Bobby as his attorney general. Mrs. Kennedy is the only American to have the distinction of being mother to both a president and an attorney General, much less those who served in the same administration. Teddy served in the Senate for fifty years. Jean was appointed Ambassador to Ireland by Pres. Bill Clinton, serving from 1993 through 1998. Mrs. Kennedy's daughter Eunice married the distinguished public servant Sargent Shriver and started the Special Olympics.
2. Rearward, Mr. Sprat

Answer: Back Jack

Back is the opposite of front as well as of forward. Jack is a diminutive of John. The nursery rhyme character Jack Sprat could eat no fat, and so missed out on pork crackling, poor fellow.
3. Select Mr. Nolte or Mr. Carraway

Answer: Pick Nick

To select is to pick.

Nick is a diminutive of Nicholas. Old St. Nick is a name for Santa Claus or Father Christmas, while Old Nick is a name for the devil.

Nick Nolte (Born February 8, 1941) is an American actor. His films include "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" (1986) and "The Prince of Tides" (1991).

Nick Carraway is the first person narrator of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel "The Great Gatsby."
4. Move at speed, leader of the Argonauts

Answer: Hasten Jason

To hasten means to hurry, to move at speed.

Jason was a hero from Greek mythology, leader of the Argonauts. The name is derived from the ancient Greek verb "to heal."
5. Attractive cat

Answer: Pretty Kitty

If a girl is attractive, she is probably pretty; though pretty is different from beautiful.

Kitty is a diminutive of Katherine in its various spellings.
6. Elaborate, Miss Drew

Answer: Fancy Nancy

Fancy is the opposite of simple or plain.

Nancy is a diminutive of Ann that nowadays is often used as a name in its own right.

Nancy Drew is a perennially popular girl detective, first introduced in "The Secret of the Old Clock," published in 1930.
7. More dulcet; the chief of the Apostles

Answer: Sweeter Peter

Dulcet, from the same Latin root as the Italian dolce, means sweet. It is usually applied to sounds such as the human voice.

Simon Peter, St. Peter, was the chief of Christ's apostles and the one He called the rock on which He would build his Church.
8. Mad, disordered; chain-making flower

Answer: crazy Daisy

Crazy means mad or disordered. A crazy quilt is one that is put together with little or no discernable pattern.

Daisy, the name of the flower, is used as a diminutive of Margaret.
9. Sweet morsel; one of Meg Murray's twin brothers in "A Wrinkle in Time" or Danny's love interest in "Grease"

Answer: candy Sandy

Candy comes in many shapes and flavors. One old fashioned and rather nice kind your quiz maker has encountered is made with rosewater. More common candies are made with chocolate, licorice or fruit flavors.

Sandy is a masculine and feminine diminutive of Alexander and names derived from it such as Alexandra and Sandra.

In Madeline L 'Engle's 1962 children's science fiction novel "A Wrinkle in Time" and its sequels, Meg Murray has younger twin brothers named Sandy and Dennis. In the 1978 movie "Grease" Danny, played by John Travolta, is romantically involved with Sandy, played by Olivia Newton-John.
10. Refreshing liquid squeezed from fruits and veggies; Mrs. Bucket's never-seen brother-in-law, the turf accountant, in "Keeping Up Appearances" or else Mr. Willis or Mr. Springsteen

Answer: juice Bruce

Many people enjoy a glass of juice with their breakfast. Your quiz maker likes cran-raz (cranberry and raspberry). In the U.S. a popular juice is V8 which is, not surprisingly, made from eight garden vegetables. Your quiz maker would rather drink crankcase oil, but her dad thinks it's the bee's knees. There's no accounting for taste!

Bruce comes from a Scottish surname of Norman origin, which is thought to derive from the town of Brix in the Manche department of Normandy.

In the popular Brit Com "Keeping Up Appearances," Mrs. Bucket's sister Violet, who has a Mercedes and room for a pony, is married to a somewhat eccentric turf accountant (bookmaker) named Bruce.

American actor Bruce Willis (born March, 1955), best known for action movies, rose to stardom in the 1980s romantic detective show "Moonlighting," in which he played opposite Cybill Shepherd.

American Folk/Rock singer and guitarist Bruce Springsteen was born September 23, 1949.
