A few months ago, Howard Stern hosted Julie Cailini, ('96 Playmate of the Year) and Stacey Sanchez, ('97 Playmate of the Year) for a morning of sordid joviality. The ladies, who were promoting their latest calendars, answered ten questions from Howard; ostensibly to demonstrate how important it is for them *AS ROLE MODELS* for young women to stay up on current affairs. The ladies' answers were amusing (and a bit sad), but the bit did prove that you don't have to be a neurosurgeon to earn a pile of cash! Love him or hate him, you have to appreciate Howard's sense of the absurd. Q: Who is the President of Russia? Julie: "Gorbachev" Stacey: "Gretzky" (correct answer: Boris Yeltsin) Q: Define the meaning of NAACP. Julie: "Something, something, for Certified Pianists" Stacey: "It's some kind of police organization." (correct answer: National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) Q: Who was the inventor of the lightbulb? Julie: "I know Edison invented the telephone, but I can't remember the lightbulb guy." Stacey: "I don't know." (correct answer: Thomas A. Edison. Alexander Graham Bell was the phone guy!) Q: Who is the Speaker of the House? Julie: "Gore something-or-other." Stacey: "Bill Clinton." (correct answer: Newt Gingrich. For the benefit of international members of the market, Al "Gore" is the U.S. Vice President, "Bill Clinton" is our president.) Q: Define the meaning of the letters CIA. Julie: "I don't know." Stacey: "Certified Investigation Association." (correct answer: Central Intelligence Agency) Q: What is the center of our solar system? Julie: "The Equator" Stacey: "The Moon" (correct answer: The Sun) Changing his tack to create better odds for the girls, Howard switched to what he termed "industry related" questions: Q: What do the initials "DK" stand for? A: both knew it was fashion designer "Donna Karan." Q: What is "Cristal?" A: Both knew it was an elite champagne Q: What car company has a model known as a "911?" A: both knew it was Porsche.
