Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Andrew

Answer: Populist president

The presidents that proceeded Andrew Jackson were either Virginia patrician landholders or elite Easterners. His inauguration has been described thus: "Jackson invited the public to the White House, where his supporters held a raucous party. Thousands of spectators overwhelmed the White House staff, and minor damage was caused to fixtures and furnishings. Jackson's populism earned him the nickname "King Mob."
2. Michael

Answer: Thriller

"Thriller" was Michael Jackson's sixth album released in 1982 and one of the best selling albums of all time. Complementing that was a 13 minute video released with Jackson in the midst of zombies. The director was John Landis and it was narrated by Vincent Price.
3. Stonewall

Answer: Bull Run

Stonewall Jackson was regarded as the most skilled Confederate general after Robert E. Lee. At the first Battle of Bull Run, it was pointed out that his troops were standing like a 'stone wall' and the name stuck. He died of pneumonia caused by a wound from friendly fire.

His last words were "Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees" that were the inspiration for a novel by Ernest Hemingway.
4. Janet

Answer: Wardrobe malfunction

Janet Jackson is the sister of Michael Jackson and a popular singer and performer. She was the centerpiece of the halftime performance at Super Bowl 38. A surprise guest was Justin Timberlake. Timberlake was only meant to pull away a bustier and leave the red-lace bra intact. Instead he exposed her right breast. Jackson issued an apology after the performance, saying that the incident was accidental and unintended.

As a sports fan I was watching the game but paid little or no attention to Super Bowl halftime shows that are generally overrated and over-produced. I do not recall any announcers commenting on the incident. I learned about it only in the Monday morning paper.
5. Samuel

Answer: Pulp Fiction

To make a list of the quality films that Samuel L. Jackson has appeared would be a long list. However, the philosophical Jules Winnfield as a remorseless hit man in "Pulp Fiction" is his most memorable role.

George: I just saw "Snakes on a Plane" starring Samuel L. Jackson.

Gracie: What's it about?
6. Bo

Answer: Professional football and baseball

Vincent Edward "Bo" Jackson is one of those rare individuals that excelled in both American football and baseball professionally. Injury prone, in four years with the Oakland Raiders he managed 2782 yards rushing and 352 pass receiving.

He moved on to professional baseball in 1986 and played for three teams--Kansas City Royals, Chicago White Sox, and California Angels. He amassed a career batting average of .250, hit 141 home runs, and batted in 455 runs in 8 years.
7. Wanda

Answer: Queen of Rockabilly

Wanda Lavonne Jackson is an American singer, songwriter, pianist and guitarist, one of the first popular female rockabilly singers. She is known to many as the "Queen of Rockabilly". Rockabilly was a fusion genre to combine traditional country music with rock and roll. She most remembered for "Hard Headed Woman":

"Well a hard headed woman,
A soft hearted man
Been the cause of trouble
Ever since the world began.
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
A hard headed woman been
A thorn in the side of man.
Now Adam told to Eve,
"Listen here to me,
Don't you let me catch you
Messing round that apple tree."
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
A hard headed woman been
A thorn in the side of man."
8. Kate

Kate Jackson appeared in several feature films but is most remembered by American audiences actress, as Sabrina Duncan in "Charlie's Angels" (1976-79) and Amanda King in "Scarecrow and Mrs. King" (1983-87).
9. Phil

Answer: NBA coach

Phil Jackson was not your typical basketball coach. He had a holistic approach to coaching, influenced by Eastern philosophy, and was nicknamed the "Zen Master". He also applied Native American spiritual practices. However, you can not argue with success. He coached for both the Chicago Bulls and Los Angles Lakers and delivered 11 NBA championships.
10. Jesse
