Image Well, after all those years of laughing at stupid people and their stupid words and criminal antics, I'm willing to bet at least a few of them would probably ask "Well, if you're so smart, prove it!"

...And that's exactly what we're going to prove this year, with Trivia of the Day!

Each and every day, I will post a trivia question, and then the next day I will post the answer along with the next question.

Now, this year, I'd like to do something different: A monthly competition! Whoever scores the most points at the end of each month is the winner! Complete with prizes!

However, I would like for everyone to get something, so I'm limiting so that you may win only once every few months. I know, it kinda bites, but trust me, the prize should be nice enough.

Alright then! I hope to see some real posts this time around! There's objects at stake here! Let's get started!

What Hollywood sex symbol once asked on screen, "Hey, did you try dunking a potato chip in Champagne? It's real crazy!"?

You said american sex symbol and I immediately thought Marilyn Monroe. Other than that, I've never heard the quote.

I'm with Raxy here.

I'm going with Marilyn Monroe, too. Her name's pretty much synonymous with the term "American Sex Symbol" at this point.

I'm also going to guess Marilyn Monroe because that's just the first name that comes to mind when I think "sex symbol."

Wait, points still count even if it's copying someone else?

Crap! I knew I should've just guessed with everyone else. For some reason I thought only the first right answer counted.

Well whatever.

Japan.

Image Every point is counted. I want to avoid a "first come, first serve" type thing simply because not everyone can be on at the same time and that isn't really fair.

However, I will only accept your first answer, so don't be sneaky and try to edit your answers, everyone, if you think the answer is something else after you already posted!

Yeah, the only country I can think of that does that kind of thing is Japan, so I'll follow everyone else and say Japan.

But I'll go with Japan, too.

I got it first, and I still don't even get a point? ):

That said, I haven't a clue for this question, so shrug.
