Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. This word describes a pained facial expression, such as when someone is in severe agony or realizes he or she has made a terrible error ("No-o-o-o-ooo!"). The word also may also describe one of Ronald McDonald's purple friends.

Answer: grimace

McDonald's Grimace was introduced into pop culture in 1971, and started out as a bad guy. After a brief hiatus, he was brought back the next year as a friend of Ronald.
2. Celebrities are consistently found in a weekly or monthly published periodical, often called this. It also may describe a location where unfired ammunition is held in a pistol.

Answer: magazine

Magazines such as "Us Weekly" or "People" often are laden with celebrities.
3. My quiz writing fanaticism might cause an observer to describe me using this noun. Perhaps singer/songwriter Michael Sembello could write us quiz writers a theme song.

Answer: maniac

One-hit wonder Michael Sembello wrote and sung the song "Maniac" for the movie "Flashdance" in 1983. It would be his only hit, a Billboard Number One. The movie sparked an entire fad of dress, complete with buying brand new loose fitting sweaters and cutting them up with a scissors. And let us not forget the leggings.
4. One's diet and eating habits may give you a condition where you have iron poor blood. When that happens it can result in a condition where they describe you as having this condition. Two different spellings of the correct answer are available.

Answer: anemic

Being anemic is certainly not a death sentence, although some anemic conditions are results of severe blood loss, which in itself can be a life-threatening situation. As far as having low iron in blood, that is a form of microcytic anemia, where the blood does not form hemoglobin properly.

This condition is more common in women than men, and is treatable. I have allowed both anemia and anemic to be correct answers, including their alternate spellings, anaemia and anaemic.
5. The winner of a race might celebrate by shaking this, a percussion instrument popular in Latin American music. You can only shake one though, there is no "S" in AMAZING RACE. What is it?

Answer: maraca

Maracas are most often played in pairs, but if you only had one (and the lack of a "S" in AMAZING RACE means you do), you could still play to your heart's content. Sometimes called "rumba shakers", they have penetrated pop music in some places, but they will usually be found in the music of Central and South America most commonly.
6. "The Big Ragu" Ragusa, a character from the 1970s ABC sitcom "Laverne and Shirley", had this first name. That name is also a bright shade of red pigment developed from the aluminum salts of an acid of the same name. What word in AMAZING RACE are we looking for here?

Answer: carmine

Carmine Ragusa, played by Eddie Mekka, never became the front line person or achieved the popularity that Laverne, Shirley, Lenny or Squiggy did. But the character did remain on the show for its eight year run. And the aluminum salts from carminitic acid are what is used to develop the pigment known as Carmine, also known in the business as Natural Red #4.
7. This quiz is written in English which is a language that is part of this linguistic classification, a member of the Indo-European language family. Other classifications in the Indo-European family include Slavic, Latin, Baltic and Armenian. What is this classification?

Answer: germanic

The majority of Germanic speakers are the English-speaking, with about 400 million, and German-speaking, with about 100 million speakers. Other languages included are Danish, Norwegian, Afrikaans, and Icelandic.
8. It is impossible to form one word from the letters AMAZING RACE, so technically we are not forming this, just shorter versions of them. So before you go "ram a nag", tell me what it is we are trying to find in "AMAZING RACE"?

Answer: anagram

Anagrams are formed when all of the letters of a word or phrase are rearranged to create a new word or phrase. So if all letters aren't used, it technically isn't an anagram. But the term has overflowed to be used for hidden word puzzles such as this.

The 1992 film "Sneakers" demonstrated true anagrams when they discovered the cover company "SETEC Astronomy" could be rearranged to form "Too Many Secrets".
9. To paraphrase the movie "JFK", the clues can be "a mystery wrapped in a riddle inside..." this. The word is also name of a musical group that had a worldwide smash hit in 1990 called, "Sadeness, Part I". What is the word in question inside AMAZING RACE?

Answer: enigma

"Enigma" has continued releasing albums since 1990's successful debut "MCMXC a.D.", but have never reproduced the same success. "Sadeness, Part I" reached Number One in 24 different countries.
"A mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma" was an oft quoted line uttered by Joe Pesci in the movie "JFK", but the line was actually said by Winston Churchill long before Kennedy ever took prominence in American history.
10. This French brandy is closely related to Cognac. The brandy is named for the region in France where it is made, and is also the family of grapes that are allowed in the process of making it. Can you name the liqueur we are referring to?

Answer: armagnac

Armagnac is a region in Gascony in southwestern France. The brandy is distilled from grapes in the region, but is typically only distilled once, unlike cognac which is distilled twice. Therefore the smoothness of Armagnac is not as noticeable as it is in the Cognac.
