Not So Trivial a Pursuit! -
What was the first country in the world to introduce an income tax in 1789? That’s easy: Britain. What Michael Jackson album spawned five chart-topping singles' Piece of cake: Bad. OK then, here’s the stumper: What two first or middle names can make a woman eligible to join the mostly-male FRED Society? Most people especially non-Freds will have to turn the Trivial Pursuit card over to find the answer. But even before they do, millions will be asking 'The FRED Society' What's that?"
And that's just what we want them to do. Our thanks to the folks at Parker Brothers for deciding to immortalize The FRED Society in the latest version of Trivial Pursuit-Genus IV. Just think, people from Alaska to Florida will be asking and answering a question about the FRED Society. Now that's exciting news!
In fact, we were so excited that we ran out and bought one of the games to make sure we weren't dreaming. And there we were in living color. And it wont end with just the box version. Apparently, plans are in the works for a web version of the game which will also include The FRED Society question.
Its great to see that all of our hard work and your support is having a positive effect on the culture! Notice how the question in no way demeans the grand name of Fred. In fact, it accomplishes just the opposite. Now the name Fred as well as Winifred or Frederica (the answer to the Trivial Pursuit question) will be held in the highest esteem and preserved for future generations. With this milestone achieved, we set our sights on even loftier goals. Jeopardy here we come!
