Question of the Day

Dec 08, 2017

Yesterday, we asked: Patti LaBelle infamously forgot the words to “This Christmas” while singing at what event? You must also include the year to win.

Answer: That was the 1996 National Christmas Tree Lighting. As Esquire’s Dave Holmes describes it, “It is an aria of irritation, and she delivers it flawlessly, while wearing a duvet cover from West Elm.” (Side note: Do yourself a favor and read that piece.)

Congrats to Jude Isabella, first to tweet the correct answer.

Your question of the day for today is…Fifty years ago the first human heart transplant surgery took place, in Cape Town, South Africa. How many days did the first heart transplant patient live after the surgery?
