Back then, of course, if the fight lasted less than fifty rounds, we demanded our nickel back!

It's been a while since I put up trivia, and I've been stocking up on misses. Unfortunately, I've misplaced most of that stock, but here are a couple of the tougher ones from the last few weeks. Get these, and you too could be taking your local pub for a bottle of wine and a gift certificate every week.

  1. According to Mattel, what is Barbie's last name?
  2. Who is the only Major League Baseball player to hit a home run for both leagues in the All-Star Game? (Not in the same game, obviously)
  3. What African dog breed is also known as "The Barkless Dog?"
  4. What comedian introduced Johnny Carson as the new host of The Tonight Show on October 1, 1962?
  5. What fruit forms the base for the liqueur creme de cassis?
  6. Who was the only boxer to defeat John L. Sullivan by knockout?
