Test Your Golden Girls Knowledge With This Special Edition of Trivial Pursuit

The Golden Girls edition of Clue was released over a year ago, giving fans plenty of time to play through every possible scenario of the mystery-solving game. Now, they can move on to something a little more intellectually stimulating: ThinkGeek is selling a version of Trivial Pursuit inspired by the beloved sitcom.

Instead of dealing with general knowledge like history, geography, and entertainment, the questions in this game are all about the show. Categories include "The Ladies" (Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia, naturally), "Family Matters," "Who Said It?," "Men of the Night," "Locations," and "Words of Wisdom." With more than 600 questions delving into all seven seasons, even the most devoted Golden Girls viewer is bound to learn something new about their favorite foursome.

The Golden Girls Trivial Pursuit comes in the classic pie wedge container (though in this case, a more apt comparison may be a slice of cheesecake). It's now available to purchase online from ThinkGeek for $20.

This Vincent Van Gogh Action Figure Comes Complete with Removable Ears

Historians still don’t know how Vincent van Gogh lost his left ear, or for that matter, how much of it was actually lopped off. However, as Bored Panda reports, Today Is Art Day decided to take historic liberties in the name of nerdy fun and created a mini van Gogh action figure, complete with two completely detachable ears.

Today Is Art Day developed a prototype of the 5-inch PVC figurine back in 2017, and to bring it to the art-loving masses, they launched a Kickstarter campaign. Backers who contributed $28 Canadian dollars (around $21 USD) scored their own van Gogh action figure.

Fans who missed out on the Kickstarter the first time around can buy one on Amazon now for $24. He even comes in a box decorated with miniature, cut-out replicas of his Sunflowers (1888) and The Starry Night (1889).

Today Is Art Day has since branched out to produce a whole host of other figurines based on famous icons, from other artists like Frida Kahlo and Gustav Klimt to scientific luminaries like Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein.
