20.47% of teams – It was the feminist content, not the dirty word in the title: One of the last additions to the Vatican’s prohibited books list was what groundwork text by Simone de Beauvoir? Answer: The Second Sex (aka: Le Deuxième Sexe)
22.88% of teams – During the Vietnam War, Admiral Elmo Zumwalt ran a flotilla of what speedy river vehicles that carried a disillusioned John Kerry? Answer: Swift Boats (aka: Patrol Craft Fast)
