[Answer] What was Dr. Seuss’ real name?

Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Trivia Question: What was Dr. Seuss’ real name?

The given options are:

  • Marvin K. Mooney
  • Samuel McGrinch
  • Theodor Seuss Geisel

Correct Answer: Theodor Seuss Geisel

Fact: While attending Dartmouth in the early 1920s, at the height of Prohibition, Geisel was caught drinking alcohol. Part of his punishment meant no longer working at the college humor magazine—but Geisel stayed on by signing his work ‘Seuss,’ his middle name (adding ‘Dr.’ in 1927 just for fun).
