Question of the Day

Jun 07, 2017

Yesterday we asked: Police in Vail, Colorado, are warning homeowners to bear-proof their homes after a bear was caught on a security video doing what?

Answer: That bear was playing the piano.

Congrats to Mitch Cohen, who was first to tweet in the correct answer. We have quite a few honorable mentions today, including David Daniel, who tweeted, “the bear broke in and played the piano. That's paws for thought,” Mark Edwards, who revealed, “The bear was playing the piano. I only wish I could play the piano. Makes me feel inferior,” and Dan Rosenbaum, who said, “Playing piano. Wanna get it with my cat for some six-paw work. No nuns or hookers @DanTynan.” (For the record, Dan Tynan answered, “texting Betsy DeVos, asking if anyone inside is armed.”)  Margo Howard clarified, “He played the piano, well, OK, banged on it, but better yet, he took food from the freezer!” and Mike Bawden tweeted, “‘Play it again, Sammy-bear.’ Bear plays a piano in Vail, Co. Gets tipped in canned salmon.”

Your question of the day for today is…What did Truman Capote do that got him fired from his job at The New Yorker?
