Question of the Day

Here's Monday's question: CNN reports that Nestle was forced to recall some of its Drumstick Ice Cream cone products this week after they tested positive for Listeria. So let's remember happier times for this feat of engineering and ingenuity: Legend has it that the first ice cream cone was invented by a Syrian man in the early 20th century. What was his name and at what world event did he introduce his invention?

Answer: Ernest Hamwi, 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. 

Congrats to David Daniel, entertainment journalist at CNN -- he had the competition licked. In general, anyone who answers our question that quickly makes us melt. 

Today's question of the day is...

President Obama discussed traveling to Mars in an op-ed this morning on, so we've got space on the brain. Mars has two moons. So we want to know the names of the moons AND what they’re named after. The first person to answer is out of this world in our book.
