Friday's question of the day asked: Joanna Carter Siegel, the original inspiration for Lois Lane, was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1917 and decided to become a model after high school by placing an ad in which newspaper publication? That would be the Cleveland Plain Dealer! By the way, her ad read: "Situation Wanted — Female ARTIST MODEL: No experience." Joe Shuster, who was working on a new comic character, Superman, responded to the ad.

Congratulations to Amy B Wang for being the very first to answer that correctly! Snaps also go out to Eric Zarate of the Fort Worth Star-TelegramMike MikaelianEdward Tenner, freelance journalist Amy Zipkin, and Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times.
