Trivial Tuesday

Posted by AlienCG on December 16, 2008

This week Trivial Tuesday returns with a decidedly Christmas theme.  Although the date referred to in the question may not be that close to Christmas, I assure you that this is a Christmas question.

On September 20, 1897, an editorial appeared in the New York Sun newspaper asking a simple question.  What was the famous response given by one of the editors in response to this question?

Good luck with this one.  Have a good evening.

    Laura is too quick for all of us. Although, I like Manuel’s answer too.

    I’m surprised that nobody said, “It’s Shake and Bake, and I helped.”

    No, Laura B. got the correct answer and she will be receiving a very special gift from Rudolph down her chimney.
