Friday Trivia: Anyone got a guess at this?

While doing a bit of research on something totally unrelated I came across this rather eclectic list of people…

  • Henry Kissinger
  • Bob Hope
  • Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
  • Whoopi Goldberg
  • Nelson Mandela
  • Jackie Joyner-Kersee
  • Pope John Paul II
  • Jesse Jackson

So here’s your trivia question for the day. What do these people have in common? (And, while this isn’t a hint, they are also the only people on the list).

Oh…. and I will give hints but no prizes for finding it on the internet.

Hint #1 – The profession of one on the list is a BIG clue.

Hint #2 – They were awarded their place on the list. They are honorary members of X. X is 82 years old.

  1. they’re the only people on this list

  2. More clues please

    • Clue #2 is up.
      Pretty sure you’ll need at least one more clue but when I found this list it seemed the epitome of a perfectly formed piece of trivia. Knowing the answer should be of zero use to the initiate except in another trivia quiz.

  6. What I’m wondering is what they did do become honorary members… it’s a pretty exclusive list. Here’s the dates they were awarded…

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – 1989
    Whoopi Goldberg – 1990
