Tailpipe

Dirty Pictures

"This is pretty much all I do, Howard," Dutter replied. "I never stopped listening to '80s music."

Both he and Booey nailed the remaining three songs, leaving Dutter the winner. Stern then offered Jaimie $500, a trip to Washington, D.C., to see a wrestling event, and a group hug if she dropped her towel.

"I guess I could," she said, then did.

"Whoa, wow, ooooo!" Stern burbled. "Look at those boobs!"

The partially disrobed Jaimie declined the hug.

"I almost missed the Sammy Hagar one because it has a long intro that sounds exactly like every other heavy metal song from the '80s," Dutter said the next day. But Dutter remembered hearing the song while working out at the gym maybe a month earlier. He thought: Now there's a song you don't hear much anymore.

The 'Pipe Wants to Be a Millionaire

Last week, Tailpipe lined up with a few hundred other smarty-pipes at a Lauderdale Lakes Dodge dealership to try out for the yes-it's-still-on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? The show's traveling lackeys were administering screen tests. The 'Pipe stood in line behind an elderly gentleman who claimed he skipped seeing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in its initial 1937 release to instead buy a model airplane and in front of a woman who claimed to have won a gas grill and a lifetime supply of 20 Mule Team brand borax on Sale of the Century sometime last century. The odds were looking pretty decent, all considered, even during the tests. Dirty Harry took place in San Francisco! Susan Sarandon's character in Bull Durhamquoted Walt Whitman! Annika Sorenstam is Swedish! An enzyme in fresh pineapple prevents Jell-O from setting! Bring on the 'Pipe's promised million!

Alas, the tests also contained an unsettling number of questions that were, uh, hard. As a public service, the answers are included below, in the hope that these trivia bits come in handy during the next hurricane-inspired game of Trivial Pursuit:

Frank Capra, Fred Astaire and Will Rogers have all hosted the Academy Awards.

The word yahoo was coined in Gulliver's Travels.

The element chromium makes stainless steel stainless.

Diana Rigg played the only Bond girl James Bond ever married. -- As told to Edmund Newton
