Question of the day

Jun 30, 2016

Our last question asked: What popular children's toy got a rather odd makeover by Hasbro, and for what reason? ​Mr. Potato Head got an "'ugly' makeover for a lovely reason" -- to raise awareness about food waste, because an estimated 6 billion pounds of '"ugly' but perfectly edible fruits and vegetables are tossed every year in the U.S., for being too knotty, small or otherwise misshapen to be sold in stores."

Congrats to Shaleila for being the very first to get that exactly right. Honorable mentions go out to Craig PittmanMark GibbsLaura Kath (who adds "My wish? Return to original 1964 version! #rotnot"), Ron Casalotti (who wonders "Like teaching children to associate food with toys?") and Michael Novick for all answering correctly, as well. Special shout outs to Lucia A. Walinchus for guessing "Chewbacca mom got her own action figure," Margo Howard for guessing "Ken was made transgender" and Leigh Egan for guessing "I think it's the Disney Princess dolls, so that they can look more realistic."

As for today's question, here it is: Actress Judi Dench just got what done for her 81st birthday?
