Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. My daughter-in-law Josy (Josy is a diminutive of Josephine) is a project manager for a well-known tech company, and she shares her first name with a very famous native of Martinique, who was smart, but not as smart as my Josy! I'll accept her name (three words), her title and first name, or her married status (three words, but you have to remember that she was divorced and her second husband remarried).
2. My other daughter-in-law Shelley is a much nicer person than the annoying character played by Shelley Long in 'Cheers'. What was the character's first name?
3. My daughter-in-law Josy also shares her first name with an American dancer who took Paris by storm in the 1920s. Give me her first and last names.
4. My daughter-in-law Shelley shares her first name with one of the luminaries of the American stage and screens large and small. This famous Shelley received an Oscar nomination for her first major screen role ('A Double Life' - 1947) and went on to win two Oscars - one for 'The Diary of Anne Frank', and the other for 'A Patch of Blue'. Give me her first and last names.
5. My daughter-in-law Josy shares her first name with a fictional character, who is based on the author of the book in which she appears. It's a classic about a New England family during the Civil War. Who is the author? (Give me her full name, please.)
6. Another fictional Josephine appears in a classic about an orphan who is adopted by a brother and sister in Prince Edward Island. The book, of course, is 'Anne of Green Gables', and the Josephine in question takes quite a liking to the vivacious Anne. Give me her title and first and second names.
7. My daughter-in-law Shelley shares her first name with the last name of the author of 'Frankenstein'. First and last names, please.
8. My daughter-in-law Josy shares the first name of the pen name of a British writer whose real name was Elizabeth Mackintosh. What was her full pen name?
9. My daughter-in-law Shelley was not born in Houston, Texas in 1949, nor did she host Faerie Tale Theatre on TV. This Shelley did. First and last names, if you don't mind.
10. Always leave 'em laughing! This last Shelley was a regular on the Jack Paar and Ed Sullivan shows with his wry observations about the human condition. Younger people may remember him as Judge Ira in 'Meet the Fockers'.
