Useless information is not so useless!

I made the Whistler's day today.
The radio station he listens to does trivia every morning, and they give out different prizes each week. This morning they were giving away a night's stay at a ski resort here in Michigan. He won it last year for himself, and was hoping to get it again this year, because he really likes to ski.

This morning's question was: "What was the name that Ferris Bueller gave when he took Sloane and Cameron out for lunch at the fancy restaurant?"

I knew it, and I had him call, because I heard that they were giving away that prize again that he wanted. He got it to ring, and tried to give me the phone, I'm like NO, it's the prize you want, you do it! So he waited, and when they answered, he told them what I said, and he got it right, so he won his prize.

We listened after, and three or four people had gotten through before him, and they were just guessing. One person said James Bond, another said his dad's name, and the last one before the Whistler said Tom Cruise. Silly people. Of course, the people that listen to this station probably haven't seen the movie as often as I have, it's one of my favorites.

What about YOU guys? Do you know the answer? :) No sneaky looking it up, now!

Sorry, I cheated and looked it up. :) I have only seen the movie once or twice.

Meghandra said...

Oh I know it! I have watched that movie way more times than I should ever admit.

I've seen that movie so many times, but I can't remember the name he uses! Ack!

I just know he causes a scene because he uses a "big" name.

I fail, I can't remmeber the name. But I know enough to not guess Tom Cruz... was he even famous when that movie came out? :)

Mags said...

It was something like Ron Fromen. The Sausage King of Chicago wasn't it?

Loved the movie, though...
