Actually, in fairness to Paul, he wrote to several of us asking for permission. 11 of us are featured in Outstanding Lateral Thinking Puzzles 2005. He sent us each a signed copy of the book which our dog, who was a puppy back then, promptly chewed up the back cover!

Did your question get an answer? Did it end up in a FAQ? A list of random questions? A list of extraordinary questions? Such as the funniest? The strangest? The hardest to answer?

***** SPOILER *****

The book in question is Disney Facts Revealed: Answers to Fans’ Curious Questions. It's written by Dave Smith, retired former head of the Disney Archives. It contains questions and answers from his various Ask Dave columns in Disney publications over the years. Being a huge Disney aficionado (especially earlier Disney) I bought the book and was reading it when I saw a question from someone with the same first name as me and from the same city. The question was also about something I was really interested in and wanted to know the answer to. Then it hit me: quite a few years back I had submitted that question to the online version of his column on Disney.com and had subsequently forgotten about it! Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised to see my question and the answer in the book!
