POP QUIZ: A REGULAR WHO’S WHO OF WHO’S THAT
(If you’re checking out a Trivialitycheck.com ‘Pop Quiz’ for the first time: Every Wednesday (or most, anyway) I post ten trivia questions, usually on some kind of theme. If you respond with answers or guesses, I’ll tell you your score. Send your answers to email@example.com with the title of this post as the subject line. The full set of answers is posted the following week, along with congratulations to the high scorer(s). No googling!)
So you think Justin Trudeau is hunky? Well, would you believe John A MacDonald was a pin-up calendar model before going into politics? Did you know that Charles Tupper was only called ‘Tupper’ because of his bedroom conquests? Did you know that Joe Clark once kissed a girl?
Actually, none of that is true (sorry Joe) but our previous PMs have been around for their share of memorable events, even if they weren’t directly involved.
