Question of the Day

Jul 18, 2017

Yesterday we asked: Happy birthday to Phyllis Diller, who would have been 100 today. Diller was the first centerfold in the history of what magazine, appearing in its June 1973 issue?

Answer: That was Field & Stream, which also gave her the title of “Miss Fun Fishing of 1973.” You can read more about it here.

Congrats to...Connie Gray, first to tweet the correct answer. Margo Howard and Maryellen Nugent-Lee also noted that Diller posed for Playboy, but we’re pretty sure she wasn’t the first centerfold in that magazine’s history. (And thanks to Maryellen for digging up the Playboy photo.)

Your question of the day for today is…A few weeks ago, a woman visiting the 14th Factory gallery in Los Angeles accidentally destroyed $200,000 worth of artwork. What was she doing when she set off the “domino effect” that caused all the damage?
