Today?s Trivia



Welcome to Daily Trivia. There is a game to play here. The photo above relates to one of the items below. The first reader to correctly tell us in the comments what item the photo belongs to, and why, gets bragging rights. Sometimes they are obvious, other times the obvious answer is the decoy. Can you figure it out tonight? ?

Abandoned MIGs make for super-cool sets (like Biting Elbows viral Bad Mother music vid and Top Gear’s trip to Albania) and you can pick them up for $5 each.
