That's what I do. I ask the question first and identify the Toaster last.

I disagree about directing a specific question to one person. My view is that Table Topics questions should be asked to the meeting as a whole and then someone is selected.

I learned about this when I ran the District's Table Topics contest in 2009. Questions should be no more than 14 words and should be able to be answered by anyone. Off the top of my head, I can't cite any documents, but I will look into it more.

I also asked another Toastmaster, in the role of a herpetologist, how he would spread the word about reptiles and change the perceptions people have. I could tell that introducing new words into Table Topics woke everyone up.

Resolutions?
I did this in December. I asked one person to tell how resolutions got started. I gave another the challenge that she was a farrier (one who shoes horses) who's resolved to build her business and how is she going to persuade people to spend the money on her services and grow her business ...
