Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which of these words best describe an electoral district of a US city?

Answer: Ward

Medically, "ward" can also be used to describe a hospital room or section that holds several patients with similar illnesses and in legal terms the word is used to describe a minor or otherwise incompetent person who has been given a guardian thus being made a "ward of the court".

The verb form of "ward" can be defined as "to fight off or repel" as in "he took medicine in order to ward off the flu."
2. What surname is shared by the rhythm and blues singers Curtis of "Super Fly" fame and Percy of "Hit the Road Jack" fame?

Answer: Mayfield

Curtis Mayfield wrote the soundtrack for the movie "Super Fly" in 1972. The album was a big commercial success and is credited by some critics as paving the way for the rap/hip hop genre that followed later as well as bringing attention to the difficulties of life in the inner city. Percy Mayfield was known as the "Poet Laureate of the Blues".

His budding singing career was curtailed by an auto accident in 1952 that left his face disfigured but he continued to write songs with some of his biggest being hits "Hit the Road Jack", "But on the Other Hand, Baby" and "At the Club".
3. Which Roosevelt ran for US President as a member of the Bull Moose Party and lost?

Answer: Theodore

The Progressive Party of 1912 (nicknamed the Bull Moose Party) was established as a result of a split in the Republican Party. Theodore Roosevelt started the party after the former president lost the Republican Party nomination to his handpicked successor William Howard Taft, who was running for re-election.

Theodore Roosevelt and Taft both lost the election to Woodrow Wilson but Roosevelt did receive eighty-eight electoral votes to Taft's eight and defeated him in the popular vote count by about 600,000 votes.

The party dissolved after Roosevelt refused to accept the party's nomination to run for President in 1916.
4. What Texas city would you go to visit Lamar University, the Babe Didrickson Zaharias Museum and Spindletop?

Answer: Beaumont

Beaumont, Texas is located near the Gulf of Mexico, adjacent to the cities of Orange and Port Arthur. The region is known as The Golden Triangle. Beaumont is home to Lamar University, a state supported college with an enrollment of over fourteen thousand students. Babe Didrickson Zaharias grew up in Beaumont.

She is recognized as one of the best female athletes of all time, especially excelling in golf, basketball and track and field. She has been recognized as "The Woman's Athlete of the Century" by the Associated in Press in 1999, won over forty professional golf tournaments and won two gold medals and a silver medal in the 1932 summer Olympics. Spindletop was the sight of the first major oil strike in Texas and one of the most important oil strikes in the USA. On January 10, 1901, oil gushed into the air at Spindletop.

It initially produced 100,000 barrels of oil a day which was more than the rest of the oil wells in the US combined. This discovery began the modern petroleum industry and placed Beaumont on the map as an important center of the oil industry.
5. Which Hayes was the 19th President of the United States?

Answer: Rutherford Hayes

Rutherford Hayes was elected president in 1876 in one of the most disputed elections in US history. His opponent Democrat Samuel Tilden had more popular votes and had 184 electoral votes to Hayes' 165 electoral votes; 185 were needed to win. Twenty electoral votes split between the states of Louisiana, Florida, Oregon and South Carolina were contested.

After months of speculation, accusation, back room dealing regarding the end of Reconstruction in the post-Civil War south and confusion a fifteen man commission voted along party lines (eight to seven) giving Hayes the presidency.

He served from 1877 to 1881 and did not seek reelection for a second term.
6. What is the name of the tiger mascot that is used to sell Kellogg's Frosted Flakes?

Answer: Tony

The tiger became a mascot for Kellogg's Sugar Frosted Flakes in the early 1950s. He was originally one of four mascots designed (a kangaroo named Katy, an elephant named Elmo and a gnu named Newt were the other three) to push the new cereal, but Tony the Tiger soon took center stage and has been the cereal's main spokesman since the mid-1950s.

His most famous phrase is "They're Grrrrrrrreat!"
7. During what month is Father's Day celebrated in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Mexico?

Answer: June

A day to honor fathers and celebrate fatherhood is held on the third Sunday of June in many countries included the US, England, Canada and Mexico. Some believe that the first Father's Day was begun in 1907 in West Virginia when a day was set aside to honor the father's killed in a nearby mining disaster.

Other historians claim that the day was started in 1910 by a woman in Spokane, Washington who was moved to honor her father after hearing a Mother's Day sermon in May of 1909. She reportedly chose a day in June to coincide with her father's birthday.

In 1956 the US Congress recognized Father's Day in a Joint Resolution and in 1972 US President Richard Nixon established a permanent national day to be held to honor fathers designating the third Sunday of each June as that day.
8. Which of these words would be used by a sailor to describe rough waters, a cook to describe bad gravy and a tired person to describe an uncomfortable mattress?

Answer: Lumpy

"Lumpy" can be used as a nautical term to describe rough water formed by high winds that create small choppy waves. The word can also be used to describe gravy that has parts of the flour, fat and liquid coagulate. The best way to get rid of the lumps is by using a whisk to quickly whip the gravy in order to break up the lumps or use a strainer to get rid of the lumps. "Lumpy" is also used to describe an uncomfortable mattress. Making sure you have a good frame, box springs, occasionally flipping your mattress or using a mattress topper can help with "lumpy" mattresses.
9. Which of these instruments would most likely be used by a butcher?

Answer: Cleaver

A cleaver is rectangular-headed shaped chopping object used to cut through bones and sinew. The broad head and long handle gives it a hatchet like appearance. A cleaver is often used by butchers to split carcasses into pieces.
