Weekly Trivia Update: We lost again. Big time. And our hated rivals won. But on the plus side, the Snook won us three free jugs of beer! Which makes for a pretty cheap night out. Questions we missed:

  1. What are the three yellow properties on a Monopoly board? (Technically the question was about the English version, but I couldn’t even remember the American ones.)
  2. In which book did Dale Carnegie say, “The only way to get anybody to do anything is to make him want to do it.” (Slight paraphrasing there, but you get the point.)
  3. What was the real name of the “leather man” in the Village People? (He’s the one that died a year or two ago.)

Can you do any better than we did? Put your answers in the comments.

  1. *Cough* *Cough* You’re on a fitness drive. The beer should not be consumed 😉

  2. It was medicinal! 🙂

  3. Oh my god, I have no idea. I know in Monopoly, that the Yellows are the mack- the ones you want to have – I think they are 300. Now I feel frustrated. Is that the Marvin’s Gardens bunch?

  4. despite the fact that my roommate owns a monopoly BLANKET that he lounges around in, i have no idea what the yellow is…it seems tara d. is right. i was thinking it was the indiana ave. ones, but those are red…

  5. Right. Marvin Gardens was the only one I could come up with. What the hell are the other ones?

    Oh, and I liked how I was racking my brains for ten minutes about this til she clarified “the English version.” D’oh! In London it’s, like, Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, and Leicester Square or something.

  6. Ventor, Marvin Gardens, and Atlantic?

  7. Ooh, I think you’re right, Sal! Ventor’s the one I can never remember. That’s not a real word! But kudos to you, Trivia Queen. I wish you were here; we’d win every week! 🙂

  8. Only Dale Carnegie book I know is “How To Win Friends and Influence People”.

  9. Ding ding ding! We have a correct answer. Actually I said that book as a joke when the question was read, but we didn’t put it down. I guess I always think about it as a punchline and not as a real book. Have you read it?

  10. I knew the Dale Carnegie answer. One of the yellows is Leicster Sq. DOn’t know the rest.

  11. I haven’t read the Carnegie book. My impression was that it was a publishing phenomenon in the 1930s, which is why it became somewhat of a punchline.

  12. what are the three yellow propertiers on momopoly?

  13. piccadilly.leister square,coventry street
