Question of the Day

Jun 09, 2017

Yesterday we asked: Although he loved westerns, Dwight Eisenhower refused to watch any movie that featured perennial western star Robert Mitchum and refused to allow them to be screened in the White House during his two terms as president. Why?

Answer: Ike didn’t like Mitchum after he was charged with marijuana possession.

Congrats to Craig Pittman, who was concise about it: “Busted for weed.”

Your question of the day for today is…Donald Duck, who made his first appearance on June 9, 1934, is reportedly the only major Disney character with an official middle name. What is it?
