Without seeing the answers I'd assume it was Kraft.

I just don't see how? Just because they've been longest in the business?

So long that they're synonymous with Mac n' Cheese. In a guessing question pick that one instantly.

I knew the name, I knew they'd been around for quite a while, it was the only one I'd heard of so I stabbed, but honestly my gut feel was that Kraft was Dutch.

Wiki subsequently tells me that I'm a bit off in that respect.

Or they'd say something or other Mark 2 and I wouldn't know what the make was let alone the difference between a 2 and a 1.
They're just cars.
Personally, can't stand these show-offs with their precious pony cars.

I've got to stop second guessing, twice today, would have been right if I hadn't second guessed.

My favorite folly, too, Mike! It never fails that the second guess is wrong. So I don’t know what that says about me that I will keep doing it!

Same here. I clicked, went back and clicked a different answer and the first was the right one. Would have been a perfect 10.

There we go folks. Do I petition that Mike not be allowed to answer any doggie questions in the future?

Hmmm, need to program animals for Mike to be cats and horses only.

Especially if you were from Canada (hubby said it is the dinner of choice for most single Canadian males) and US kids under 10.

Just like Bologna has a first name ........

If a woman was "stacked", what did she have?
"Stacked" was one of the milder terms to express a part of the female anatomy.
I suspect that if 'History' had been like this at school I may have been a bit more interested in the subject

Booooo!
I clicked submit and it went but didn't go and eventually got timed out. By the time I tried (and succeeded) again it was well past 100 seconds.
Not that it matters as I only got nine and there will be half a dozen maximums by the time it's done.

Day after day after day I have second guessed myself this week -- and every single time the first choice was correct. I need to give myself detention!!!

Good Morning My Fellow Players

Just a heads up that Mikelincs will be taking over Trivia for 3 weeks starting June 19th while I'm traveling to the Northeast. I'll be visiting lower New York and Massachusetts and all without a working laptop (by choice). When on vacation, I tend to leave the cyber world behind.
