What were the first names of Mammy and Pappy Yokum in the Li’l Abner comic strip?
  • Mammy was Pansy; Pappy was Lucifer.

Which is the only state whose official fossil is of an animal that still exists?
  • Vermont. Its state fossil is the skeleton of a beluga (aka white whale) that was found in 1849 more than 150 miles from the nearest ocean. Experts believe it died about 11,500 years ago, when an arm of the Atlantic reached into what is now the Green Mountain State. Today, belugas are found only in the arctic and subarctic regions.
