Question 1 of 10

Samuel Israel III wrote the theme song from what television show on his SUV in an attempt to fake his own death?

  1. All In The Family
  2. M*A*S*H*
  3. Six Feet Under
  4. The Sopranos
Correct!

Samuel Israel III was a hedge fund manager who had earned a 20-year prison sentence for swindling his clients out of $450 million. On the day he was to start serving his time, he disappeared, and his SUV was found abandoned with "Suicide is Painless," the theme song from "M*A*S*H*," scrawled in the dust on its hood. Israel had tried to make it look as though he had committed suicide, which no one believed for a minute. He finally turned himself in to authorities in July 2008.
