Question of the day

Mar 18, 2016

Our last question asked: The New York Times is trying to ruin St. Patrick's Day for all of us by revealing that what is "not so Irish" after all? Corned beef and cabbage, as it turns out: "Experts say the meal originated on American soil in the late 19th century as Irish immigrants substituted corned beef for bacon, which was meat of choice in the homeland." Well, at least there was something Irish involved in its evolution, aye?

Congrats to Ken Walker (who adds "Still green beer is totally Irish. Right?") of Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to get that right! Honorable mentions go out to these fantastic folks for also answering correctly: Sarah-Ann Soffer (who notes "but did that ever seem Irish to you in the first place?"), Carrie GraySweet BlackberryMr MarkiniJohn Wall (who suggests "Sell off your shares of Gas-X and Tums now"), Charlotte LoBuonoMark Gibbs (who says "There are lies, damned lies, and pop culture"), Waterfield Designs (who wonders "So why do we force ourselves to eat it?!"), Matt Nagel and Ron Casalotti (who notes "As my County Cork born mother-in-law says, 'I never had that 'til I moved here'"). Shout out to Ximena Mosqueda, whose answer was "St. Patrick - he was British, but really hated those pesky snakes."

As for today's question, here it is: A new Internet conspiracy theory proposes that Ted Cruz is what, now? And no, we're not talking about the Zodiac killer theory!
