Question #11
Hosted the first Academy Awards / Looked it up at Wikipedia here*:

Question #12
Volkswagon Beetle / I knew that one. If I had forgotten it my father would probably have disowned me. ROTFL! My early childhood revolved around CB and Trucker talk every time we went some where. And that CB to my dad, was like Cell Phones to people these days. LOL!

A (probably) derogatory term used by ‘truckers’ (i.e. operators of 18-wheel tractor-trailers) to describe Station Wagons. I don’t think it would work now-a-days, see as how some station wagons, like the Subaru Outback, are actually kind of cool; probably applies to the old k-car wagon varieties. Think faux wood paneling.

The term “Pregnant Rollerskate” was CB and/or trucker slang for a Volkswagen Beetle, referring to both the shape (i.e., like a pregnant woman’s belly) and the size (rather small) of the car.

The classic Beetle (aka the VW Bug) certainly has the right shape. The curve of the passenger compartment would be the belly, the headlights would be where the legs connect to the hips, and I’ll let your mind go from there., My info is from everthing2.com, June 12, 2009. 12:29 a.m. MDT
