Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What word, ending in -key, describes a type of primate?

Answer: monkey

There are a number of kinds of primate. "Primate" technically refers to a biological order distinguished by the following (no member of the primate order exhibits all these traits but to qualify, an organism must exhibit some of them):
-opposable thumbs
-prehensile hands and feet
-good vision, usually binocular
-large brain with cortical folds
-flattened nails instead of claws
-a variety of physical structures/forms
-extended periods of postnatal dependency

There are two sub-categories of primate. Man and apes are in one category and, interestingly, lemurs are in the other!
2. What word, ending in -key, is a symbol of the U.S. Democratic party?

Answer: donkey

And the Republicans are represented by an elephant.

The donkey was first used by Andrew Jackson on his campaign posters after a newspaper journalist called him a jackass during his run for President in 1828.
3. What word, ending in -key, means "nonsense"?

Answer: malarkey

Also known as hooey, bushwah, baloney, balderdash, drivel, tripe, poppycock and hogwash-among others!
4. What celebrity, whose given name ends in -key, was briefly named "Mortimer" and starred in the 1928 cartoon, "Steamboat Willie"?

Answer: Mickey

It's said that Lillian Disney, Walt's wife, didn't like the name Mortimer and suggested "Mickey" as an alternative--and the rest is history. Mickey Rooney also claimed to have been the inspiration for the mouse's name, but Walt Disney agreed that it was Lillian's doing.
5. What word, ending in -key, describes how a tone-deaf person sings?

Answer: offkey

Tone deafness (formal name: amusia) affects about five percent of the population. Not only are people who are so affected unable to sing on key, they don't hear music on key either. Music sounds cacophonous to them, sadly.

Tone deafness is hereditary, and is caused by a specific nerve bundle in the brain's being abnormally small or absent altogether.
6. What word, ending in -key, is the main dish at most U.S. Thanksgiving tables?

Answer: turkey

Europeans settling in the Americas thought these birds were related to guineafowl, which were thought to have originated in the country of Turkey, so they called them "turkey fowl", which got shortened to "turkey". In actuality turkeys have no connection to the country of Turkey other than the name.
7. What word, ending in -key, denotes the occupation of Eddie Arcaro and Willie Shoemaker?

Answer: jockey

Eddie Arcaro won the Triple Crown twice and had a career total of 4779 wins. Willie Shoemaker never won the Triple Crown, although he did win 11 Triple Crown races in his career.
8. What word, ending in -key, is the sport of the Stanley cup?

Answer: hockey

The Stanley Cup is named for a Governor General of Canada, Lord Stanley of Preston. He and his family liked hockey so much that he bought the Cup from a company in London and donated it to one of Canada's best-performing amateur hockey clubs in the 1890s. The Cup is actually older than the National Hockey League.

It should be noted that in North America the use of the word hockey to refer to a sport means ice hockey. What other parts of the world refer to as hockey is called field hockey to distinguish it.
9. What six letter word, ending in -key, describes a servile follower?

Answer: lackey

The origin of this word is unknown, but it's possibly from Middle French "lacquais", meaning foot soldier or servant.
10. What word, ending in -key, deshcribes, er, I mean, DESCRIBES, Jack Daniel's or George Dickel?

Answer: whiskey

Maybe I shipped, er, I mean SIPPED, a bit too much writing this quiz...

The term "whiskey" (aka "whisky") is of Gaelic origin. The Gaelic word 'usquebaugh' meant "water of life". There is some disagreement as to exactly when and where the first whiskey was distilled-Ireland or Scotland-but it seems certain it originated in one of the two. It is documented that whiskey was being commercially produced in Scotland by 1494.
