Cordova Saucer computer hacked; next week’s trivia questions stolen

HA!  Success!  After dodging a few firewalls, I managed to hack into the computers at the Cordova Flying Saucer, where I found the questions for their Tuesday trivia night next week.  Questions are below.  (Note to Downtown Saucer trivia players:  These are not the same questions asked Downtown.  Each location has to tailor its questions to fit the intellect of the surrounding area.)

Bonus Beer (5 extra points):  On this day in 1982, lots of people drank a Bud Light while watching baseball.  Buy a Bud Light for 5 additional points.

1. (1 point)  George H.W. Bush was President of the United States in the 1980s-1990s.  He had a son who was President in the 2000s.  Name the son.

2. (2 points)  The Chevrolet Corvette, the Honda Civic, and the Chrysler 300 are all examples of what type of vehicle?

3. (3 points)  Leonardo DiCaprio starred in a movie about the Titanic, a ship that hit an iceberg and sank.  What was the name of the movie?

4. (4 points) Name the famous rodent who starred in many Disney features, and who serves as an ambassador for the Disney brand.  (Trivia Master’s note:  Will probably have to give them a hint that I’m looking for a mouse.  Most likely they won’t know what “rodent” means.)

5. (5 points) This organ, found in the human body, beats 60-100 times per minute and pumps blood to all parts of the body.  Name the organ.

6. (6 points) In the 1960s, Andy Griffith starred in a sitcom which featured characters such as Aunt Bee, Barney, and Goober.  Name the show.

Round 1 bonus (10 points):  This animal is found in Australia.  It has a pouch and hops on two legs.  Name the animal.

7. (1 point each) Name two numbers that are smaller than 3.

8. (4 points) What sandwich is made of a round patty of meat in between two buns, and is often topped with items such as pickles, cheese, and mustard?

9. (6 points) The Cubs and White Sox baseball teams are located in what city?

10. (8 points) Huge lizard-like reptiles roamed the earth 100 million years ago.  What were these called?

11. (10 points) Question for computer nerds:  If you wanted to print documents and photos from your computer, what type of device would you buy?

12. (12 points) Chardonnay, Merlot, and Pinot Noir are types of what beverage?  (Trivia Master’s note:  This one may stump the entire room.  If it does, give them a hint and tell them that Boone’s Farm Strawberry is another type of this beverage)

Round 2 bonus (2 points each):  There are 50 states in the United States of America.  Name 10 of them.  (Trivia Master’s note:  Give them a hint and tell them that “Memphis” is not a state.)

13. (3 points) Santa Claus is typically associated with what holiday?

14. (6 points) What famous rock’n’roll star lived in a mansion called Graceland?

15. (9 points) What are games like Go Fish, poker, and gin rummy played with?  (MY note:  “playing cards” obviously is the answer, but if this question were asked at the Downtown Saucer, “beer” and “liquor” would also have to be taken as correct answers)

16. (12 points) What celestial body, considered a planet for over 70 years, is now classified as a “dwarf planet” or “pluton?”

17. (15 points) Sombreros, margaritas, and Mexican beers like Corona are associated with what country?  (Trivia Master’s note:  May have to take “USA” for partial credit if people complain that a lot of people here drink margaritas and Corona.  At least give them credit for knowing the USA is a country.)

18. (18 points) Theodore Roosevelt was a colonel in the “Rough Riders” in the Spanish-American War of 1898.  Name the two countries that fought in this war.

Round 3 bonus (30 points):  HUD is an acronym for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.  If you spelled the letters of HUD backward, what would you have?  (Trivia Master’s note:  Give them a hint and tell them to go with their first thought on this one)

HAHAHA!  Information is power!  With advance knowledge of the questions, I may have to put a team together and head to Cordova Tuesday night.
