ALL4’s: Is That Your Final Answer?
Posted: October 29th, 2012Author: All4 Staff
Last Month’s Answer and Winner:
We had our usual list of suspects providing correct answers to the September “Is That Your Final Answer” question; however, a newcomer to our contest, Alan L. Markle of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, is being credited as this month’s winner. Alan correctly identified that paper is the appropriate one year anniversary gift. In addition to his correct answer, Alan provided some recommendations to me on the type of “paper” gift I should consider next year, recommendations which I can only surmise once served him well on his anniversary. Thank you, Alan, for the tip. And thanks to all those who continue to participate in our monthly contest.
Alan’s company affiliation serves as the starting point for our October “Is That Your Final Answer” question. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is, as some of us may remember, one of the three tire manufacturers that listed my home town of Akron, Ohio as their corporate headquarters. In their heyday and when air pollution rules were just beginning to be promulgated, the olfactory evidence of tire manufacturing often competed against the aroma produced by the local Wonder Bread bakery. With a local bakery, the citizens of Akron always enjoyed a fresh supply of bread for their breakfast toast; however, many of us started our days with another breakfast staple that was originally manufactured in Akron over 160 years ago. Thus, the October “Is That Your Final Answer” question is to identify the brand of breakfast cereal that originated in Akron, Ohio and is still a popular product today. Good luck with this month’s question.
