Trivia Recap – Game #624 – January 6, 2022 – Virtual Stump! Format

How weird is it that a company known primarily for selling things that go on the feet has a logo with a face? That was just one of our misses in a recent Stump! virtual trivia game hosted by a metro Detroit host named Emily (now we know of at least two Emily hosts in the metro Detroit area)!

Here were our questions:

1) Words – What is the “P” word for the flat, rigid surface on which a painter arranges and mixes paints?

2) 2000s Films – In what 2005 film do Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie play a married couple who turn out to be secret assassins assigned to kill each other?

3) Senators – Joe Biden spent over 36 years as a U.S. senator, representing which U.S. state, where his family moved when he was ten years old?

4) ’90s Songs – What singer reached #1 with the single “Because You Loved Me” in 1996, knocking “One Sweet Day” out of the top spot after a then-record 16-week run? Nope, neither of these songs or artists were on our radar.


MYSTERY 1: Happy National Bean Day! Answer the following questions about beans.

M1) Since 1990, what actor has portrayed Mr. Bean on TV and film?

M2) What video game villain is the title character in the 1993 Sega Genesis game partially titled Mean Bean Machine?

M3) The back cover of the 1992 single “Lithium” features a sonogram of a girl with the first and middle names Frances Bean, who is the child of what two musicians?

M4) What U.S. city is home to the sculpture Cloud Gate, though it is often referred to by its nickname, “The Bean”?

Funny, earlier this very day I actually mentioned the child in #3, saying that she turned out to be more “together” than either of her parents combined. We missed #2.

Round Two

1) U.S. Cities – What U.S. city is home to the main campus of Johns Hopkins University and Hospital? Good thing we can’t name too many cities in this state, we picked the first one that came to our minds.

6) Advice Books – Along with K.C. Baker, who wrote a 2004 book titled What’s Up, Dawg?: How to Become a Superstar in the Music Business? Speaking of musical references not on our radar…miss.

7) Football – In the Canadian Football League, how many yards are there between the goal line and midfield?
NERD POINT: What is the team name of the CFL franchise that plays home games in Edmonton?

For reasons he couldn’t quite explain, Mike actually knew this answer! Sadly our guess of “Rough Riders” for the bonus answer was not correct, even though it was a running joke on an episode of “Letterkenny.”

8) TV Settings – The TV drama Mad Men is primarily set in what decade?

Mystery Two – Visual

Missed #4. Had no idea who this person was or what company he represented.

Final Category – Musicals

We don’t normally wager zero on final questions, but we wagered zero on this, and of course regretted it – even though getting it right wouldn’t have bumped us up significantly.

As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, Topol!

FINAL QUESTION: What musical, which opened on Broadway in 1964, includes characters named Golde and Perchik?
It was the first musical to reach 3,000 performances and was the longest-running Broadway musical until it was surpassed by Grease.

As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, Topol!
