Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Traveling Wiburys, HandMade Films, "Something"

Answer: George Harrison

Along with John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr, George Harrison was known as being a member of the Beatles, one of the most popular bands of the 20th century. He composed and sang the song "Something" with the group in 1969 on the album "Abbey Road."

Are you curious enough to know that he was interested in the movie business, and founded HandMade Films in 1978, which produced films such as "Monty Python's Life of Brian" and "Shanghai Surprise," which starred Sean Penn and Madonna. In 1988, along with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne, he formed the supergroup known as the Traveling Wilburys, and released two albums.
2. American Graffiti, Trilogy, Director

Answer: George Lucas

Lucas was born in 1944 and is an American movie director who wrote and directed the 1973 film "America Graffiti," which put him on the map. He then went on to write and direct the first Star Wars trilogy, which included "Star Wars", "The Empire Strikes Back," and "Return of the Jedi." Curiously enough, before his cinema days, he wanted to be a race car driver.
3. Country music, Texas, "Unwound"

Answer: George Strait

George Strait is a country singer born and raised in Texas, and has dozens of hits songs, including "Ocean Front Property," "She'll Leave You with a Smile," and, of course, "Unwound." Are you curious enough to guess his first number one hit? Well, it was "Fool Hearted Memory" in 1981.

He broke Conway Twitty's record for number one hits on Billboard's Hot Country Songs in 2009 when he charted his 44th number one hit.
4. Stand-up, Bill and Ted, Brain Droppings

Answer: George Carlin

George Carlin was certainly a curious man, known for esoteric his stand-up comedy, with a career that spanned from 1956 until his death in 2008. Carlin performed his first of 14 stand-up specials for HBO in 1977, and is frequently cited as one of the greatest stand-up comics of all time.

He acted in many films, including "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" in 1989, and authored several books, including "Brain Droppings" in 1997.
5. boxer, grill, minister

Answer: George Foreman

Many people might associate George Foreman with a mega-selling "George Foreman Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine" grill he advertised in the 1990s and 2000s, but he achieved fame decades earlier as a heavyweight boxer. He won a gold medal at the 1968 summer Olympics, and became Heavyweight Champion of the world when he defeated Smokin' Joe Frazier in 1973.

After a life in boxing, he became more curious about the spiritual world and the life he was leading, so he became a born-again Christian in 1977 after a near-death experience, and became an ordained minister and stepped away from boxing until 1987.

He won the Heavyweight Championship again at age 45 in 1994.
6. Baseball, 714, Bambino

Answer: George Herman Ruth

George Herman Ruth, better known as Babe Ruth, was an American baseball player who became one of the most famous athletes of the 20th century. His contract was sold from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees in 1920, and he went on to have one of the most prolific careers of all time.

He spent 15 seasons with the Yankees, and hit .349 with 659 home runs, 1978 RBI and a staggering .711 slugging percentage during that span. He ended his career with 714 home runs and died before it was broken. Perhaps he would have been curious as to who would eventually break it, as Hank Aaron surpassed it in 1974.

His nicknames included the "Great Bambino," "Sultan of Swat," the "Colossus of Clout" and the "King of Crash."
7. Dystopia, Winston, Big Brother

Answer: George Orwell

Are you curious enough to know what George Orwell's given name was? It was Eric Arthur Blair! He was born in 1903, and was perhaps best known for his dystopian novella "Animal Farm" and novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four," which featured protagonist Winston Smith. Orwell coined many terms in the novel that have become popular such as "Big Brother," "Thoughtcrime," Newspeak," and "Thought Police." Orwell died at age 46 from complications from tuberculous.
8. San Francisco, All-Pro, 85

Answer: George Kittle

As good as Kittle showed he is in the NFL, it is curious that he was drafted in the 5th round of the 2017 NFL draft by the San Francisco 49ers and not earlier. He made his first pro bowl selection in 2018 when he broke the record for most receiving yards in a season by a tight end with 1377.

The following season, he was selected to his first All-Pro team, and helped the 49ers reach the Super Bowl, where they were defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs 20-31. He has worn the number 85 for the 49ers.
9. 43, Junior, Barbara

Answer: George W. Bush

Bush was born in 1946 and served as the 43rd president from 2001-2009. Technically he is George Bush, Junior, as his father was George Herbert Walker Bush, who served as the 41st president of the United States from 1989-1993. George W. Bush's mother, Barbara Bush, was first lady of United States during Bush Senior's term. Out of curiosity, did you know he was part owner of the Texas Rangers before becoming governor of Texas?
10. Hollywood, Ocean, Sexiest

Answer: George Clooney

George Clooney is an American actor who has starred in many Hollywood produced films including "From Dusk Till Dawn," "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," and "Ocean's Eleven," where he played the protagonist Danny Ocean. He has won multiple Oscar awards. He was named "Sexiest Man Alive" in 1997 and 2006 by "People" magazine, the second time someone had been recognized twice: Are you curious enough to know the first? It was Richard Gere who won it in 1993 and 1999.
