Poll Answers

First, thanks so much for being willing to answer my dumb questions. Remember, there was no judging from us, but I must admit there is some shock. I am amazed that more of you didn't know Question 1. I am not amazed that more of you didn't know Question 2. Okay. Here we go.

Question 1. Do you know anything about the Hatfields and the McCoys?
Answer 1. They were real (not fictional) feuding families in the late 1800s. Their feud was set in the states of West Virginia and Kentucky and may have started over a stolen pig. It resulted in the death of many, many family members. Now their names are synonymous for feuds. And yes, there was recently a six-hour miniseries on the History channel.

Question 2. Do you know to what, "That's a clown question, bro" refers?
Answer 2. Bryce Harper is an outfielder with the Washington Nationals baseball team. He also happens to be a 19-year-old Mormon. He was recently asked whether he'd get a beer while in Canada (it's legal for 19-year-olds to drink there) and his response was, "That's a clown question, bro." See it below. It's become quite the internet sensation and it still cracks me up. If I didn't feel so dumb, I'd try to find more opportunities to use it. (Sandra, Sen. Reid "borrowed" it from Bryce.)

Winner announced tomorrow!
