Question of the day

May 13, 2015

Our last question asked: What significant piece of art sold at auction on Monday ... and what made it significant? Picasso's "Women of Algiers" was sold on Monday for $179.3 million, smashing the old auction record of $142.4 million for British painter Francis Bacon's "Three Studies of Lucian Freud" in 2013.

Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions belong to John Wall, Margo Howard (who called its total sum "more than the budget of equatorial Africa"), Hiram Reisner, Ron Casalotti, Carrie Gray, Sandra Spann, Cindi Lash, Toni Antonetti, Paul DelColle, Hollywood Highlands and Francis Hinchey for all getting that right, as well.
As for today's question, here it is: What "unusual method" did Shaquille O'Neal resort to in order to prevent himself from taking another nasty tumble at the TNT studio?
