Nice (tough?) Q#7, Nov 19th

Postby skullturfq » Tue Nov 26, 2013 10:30 am

I couldn't come up with the answer for last week's Question 7, but I still thought it was cute. I'm guessing a lot of other people probably had trouble with it, too?

Tuesday Trivia for Nov 19th wrote:What unusual distinction is shared by these occupations, among (less prominently) others? Attorney, census worker, college student, emergency rescuer, fighter pilot, grocery clerk, hockey player, novelist, talent agent, tennis pro.


I thought that the answer might be that those were all occupations attempted or dabbled in by the same character (real or fictional) but that's as far as I got. I briefly wondered whether it was George Plimpton or someone like him, who engaged in "participatory journalism". Anyway, nice question.

I loved this question too, and you're right that it was a tough one - only 4 people answered correctly.
