      Our favorite game to play on family night. The one my daughter always picks out. We have the junior edition for the kids but they enjoy the adult edition too. They enjoy picking up little nuggets of trivia that they didn't know before - as do I :-)

      I could answer five of these with utter certainty, another 10 with complete uncertainty. The others got me thinking just how dumb I really am. As far as trivia. Remind me not to go on that millionaire show, or any other game show for that matter.

      Bing recorded "Pistol Packin' Mama" with the Andrews Sisters in 1943, AEvans, which I remember well. But I'm not sure if I remember him singing it with Mae West, although I probably did. It must have been taken from one of his radio or TV shows and recorded on that 45 RPM. It's a great song! I'm not big on Gene Kelly (he's OK) but I like Fred and Ginger (I just read gunsock's hub on Ginger yesterday.)

      Julianna 8 years ago from SomeWhere Out There

      William: I loved Bing Crosby , I believe I was born in the wrong time. lolololo A fan actually reported they could hear him doing it on his recordings? I didn't realize that. Here is an oldie my grandmother gave to me it is on a 45. The song is called " Pistol Packin Mama" by Mae West and Bing Crosby. Have you ever heard of it? Bing was so interesting and I also admired Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Gene Kelly. Oh good grief I am rattling on. lolololo :)

      I am so glad that I was taught something new, :)

    • William F. Torpey profile image

      "One of two ain't bad," AEvans. Bing Crosby was commonly seen smoking a pipe. In fact the statue of him at Gonzaga University has him with a pipe in his mouth, but the pranksters steal it so often it's taken in at night to foil them. It's not commonly known, but Bing loved to jingle the coins in his pocket, and one Bing fan reported he could even hear him doing it on one of his more than 2,000 recordings.

      Julianna 8 years ago from SomeWhere Out There

      William: Those are great questions, let me see if I can try.

      1. What does Bing often have in his mouth? A cigar ?

      2. What does he like to jingle in his pocket? Change?

      I love the old classics but have to say I am honestly not certain. :)

      William F Torpey 8 years ago from South Valley Stream, N.Y.

      I always enjoyed Trivial Pursuit, AEvans, in fact I think I may still have some of the trivial cards around with all the questions on them. I have a system. I answer the questions I know and ignore the ones I don't know. But you need a trivial question about Bing Crosby. Here's two: What does Bing often have in his mouth, and what is it that he likes to jingle in his pocket?

      quicksand: That was the answer!!! :::::::::)

    • quicksand profile image

      quicksand 8 years ago

      Finally I found the method of figuring out the answer to question number 15.

      "Lisa Presley, Mickey Rooney and Tuesday Weld are all the same height, how tall are they?"

      You get each one of them to stand on top of the head of the other and measure the distance from the bottom to the top. Now multiply the result by Plank's constant, and before ten seconds elapses, divide it by Plank's constant and finally divide the answer by 3. Then you get the height of Lisa Presley.

      The next step is to get Mickey Rooney and Tuesday Weld to stand on top of each other and measure the distance from the top to the bottom. From the result you subtract Lisa's height. The result would be Tuesday Weld's height.

      The final step would be to get Mickey Rooney's height, all you need to do is multiply Tuesday Weld's height by 3, then add Lisa Presley's height to the answer and divide the whole thing by 4. So, that's the way it has to be done.

      The great thing about this method is that you need to use Plank's constant only once!

      Phew! That was real hard work! :)

      1. pancreas

      2. adrenalin, secreted by the adrenal gland

      3. a skulk of foxes

      4. the tank was invented to be the anit-trench warfare weapon - squashed 'em flat

      8. this was sung about Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII. He abdicated in 1936, and married Mrs. Simpson in 1937. There were some rumours that they were being used somehow to spy for the Germans, and Wallis Simpson was accused of having Nazi sympathies. Edwards brother succeeded to the throne. He became father of Princess Elizabeth (now Queen Elizabeth II).

      28. when you mix red, a primary color, and green, a secondary color, and opposites on the color wheel, you will get a tertiary color, sort of a muddy brown - depending on how much blue or yellow there is in the green.

      43. The ideal ball will usually have between 380 and 432 dimples.

      47. Triskaidekaphobia is fear of number 13, or fear of Friday the 13th
