Question of the Day

Nov 03, 2014

In honor of Halloween and with thanks to Francis Hinchey for suggesting it, Friday's question asked: Name at least three "poison'd entrails" that the three witches added to the cauldron according to bard William Shakespeare? Here's some of the things you could have answered: toad, fillet of a fenny snake, eye of newt, toe of frog, wool of bat, tongue of dog, Adder's fork, blind-worm's sting, lizard's leg, howlet's wing, scale of dragon, tooth of wolf, ravin'd salt-sea shark, root of hemlock, gall of goat, slips of yew ... whew! You get the idea. There were a lot of options.

Congratulations to Brianne O'Donnell for being the very first to answer (with four ingredients, no less! An over-achiever!). Honorable mentions also go out to Edward TennerAmy ZipkinDan Rosenbaum (who jokes that "Emeril adds cayenne, but it's optional"), Carrie GrayBonny BetancourtHollywood HighlandsMargo HowardPaul Boyd, and Osiris for diligently scouring the Bard's play for prime ingredients. Hope all of your Halloweens were great!

As for today's question, here it is: Which superstar singer just pulled all of her songs from Spotify?
