Question of the Day

Dec 05, 2016

On Friday, we asked: At the White House lighting of the Christmas tree this year, the Obamas were caught singing along to which performer? (hint: Said performer is from Chicago and was most recently in a Kit Kat commercial.)

Answer: Chance the Rapper. Congrats to Craig Pittman who not only answered correctly and first, but also threw in a Chance the "wrapper" pun referencing the performer's presence in a recent Kit Kat ad. Great job! (Honorable mention goes to Dave Lindquist for referring to Chance by his alias, "Lil Chano").

Your question of the day for today is… Speaking of pizza: According to legend, what ruler helped popularize the modern version of pizza by commissioning a local chef to make a pie out of ingredients representative of the Italian flag's three colors: tomato (red), basil (green), and mozzarella (white)?

As always, click here to tweet your answer to @MuckRack. We’ll announce the winners tomorrow!
