Question of the day

Nov 09, 2015

Our last question asked: A 13-year-old boy in New York says he performed the Heimlich maneuver on a classmate after learning the technique from where? That would be the cartoon show Spongebob Squarepants. As one does.

Congratulations to Amy B. Wang of the Arizona Republic for being the very first to get that right! Honorable mentions go out to these fine folks for answering correctly, as well: Ken WalkerRon Casalotti (who notes "From where all knowledge springs forth from a pineapple under the sea"), Imal WagnerMark Gibbs (who quips "next up, an advanced course in open heart surgery from 'Jackass' by Dr. Wee-Man"), News NY and LIPerrin Lawrence (who adds "it's an amphibious technique!") and Kari Hudnell (who improvises "Who teaches the Heimlich under the sea? Spongebob Squarepants!").

As for today's question, here it is: Which new breed of cat is attracting attention because of its resemblance to a mythical creature? (And what creature would that be?)
