"Come on Double-D, if this scam works, we'll get a truckload of jawbreakers!"
Dec 9th, 2009 at 04:32 GMT
For the sake of consistency you should include the coach/commentator's first name...nicely done though...keep 'em coming.
Dec 9th, 2009 at 08:10 GMT
I think you should include 'odd' for something unusual - it's not a noun, I know, but still.

Haha is Laddie real?? I thought Simpsons made that up
Dec 9th, 2009 at 17:10 GMT
Now this is a perfect example of why I enjoy Caramba's games so much. There are straightforward clues when the answers are tough and a touch of whimsy when the answers are pretty common. Even double- or triple-cluing when possible and where needed. Nice mix of pop culture and book knowledge. Skipping the dull and obvious for a more interesting variation. Most people writing this quiz would use "add" as an answer. A few might step up to "adder". Caramba makes the more interesting selection of Blackadder. Bravo!

I like, the only complaint I have is 'bobsledding'...since the actual event is just 'bobsled', i felt it was a bit of a stretch. otherwise, good quiz!
Dec 9th, 2009 at 19:48 GMT
a solid (and real) set of double d's is a-ok with me :) seriously though, good quiz!
Dec 10th, 2009 at 02:35 GMT
Great quiz-- one thing: "who's" for Madden should be "whose"
Dec 10th, 2009 at 03:37 GMT
include 'sledding' for 'bobsledding'?

@ceiiinosssttuu: You read my mental note I made as I took the ferry home tonight (and your name is perfect for my double letter quizzes)

The spider is also referred to as a "grandaddy longlegs".
Dec 10th, 2009 at 10:35 GMT
Do Britains confuse a crane fly with a spider often? That's sad.

"bobsledding" isn't really a word. It's usually referred to as "the Bobsleigh".

Wrong and wrong again.

I think you should rephrase your stringed instrument, it makes it sound like you mean all stringed instruments, but a fiddle is typically just used for violins and the like, never for a bass or cello. And the_hamburglar has a point I think odd should be accepted for oddity as well. But really good quiz, nice mix of things and challenging
Jan 5th, 2010 at 04:50 GMT
Daddy longlegs is Australian? I've always used that term and I'm from Minnesota...
Jan 5th, 2010 at 04:55 GMT
I would think that blinded by the light was manfred mann's biggest hit. And i agree with the stringed instrument comment.
Jan 5th, 2010 at 04:58 GMT
Agree with Bassoprofundo, a fiddle is definitely just a violin played with some bluegrass sprinkled over top.
Jan 5th, 2010 at 05:03 GMT
I'm from Massachusetts and have never heard of "daddy longlegs" used for a harvestman, only for the spider. That one threw me off.
Jan 5th, 2010 at 05:05 GMT
@ Cranium: According to the Vancouver2010 web site, the noun is bobsleigh. The verb and gerund appear to be bobsledding.

I agree with stmiller, though in Pennsylvania I've always heard "daddy long-legger".
Jan 5th, 2010 at 05:34 GMT
puddle of mudd for a bonus plz, its got TWO sets of dd's
Jan 5th, 2010 at 05:39 GMT
Consider adding "John Wilkes Booth co-conspirator Samuel" in the clue for Mudd?
Jan 5th, 2010 at 05:44 GMT
"Oddity" seems correct as "something" unusual implies a noun and odd is an adjective.
Jan 5th, 2010 at 05:55 GMT
Wow, I was completely oblivious to the fact a fiddle was not its own instrument in and of itself. Now I feel stupid, thanks Sporcle.
Jan 5th, 2010 at 06:00 GMT
daddy long legs is what we New Englanders call it. Great quiz.
Jan 5th, 2010 at 06:49 GMT
Any reference to Blackadder is an instant 5 star... good quiz.
Jan 5th, 2010 at 06:52 GMT
I thought something must have been up when the old title
Do You Like Double Ds
was suddenly changed! Now that the A, B, D and E quizzes are published the C's are are feeling lonely over in the Contributed area...
: Number One refers to chart position;
Blinded By the Light
Do Wah Diddy Diddy
both went to Number One and it's not
Blindded By The Light
: Odd is an adjective, oddity an noun and the clue (and reference) refer more to a noun, I think
Now that the quiz is published, I can't add or change clues
Daddy Longleggers: The clue indicates that three different countries use the same term for three different creatures. All my life I thought of that piece of puffed wheat with 8 skinny legs as a spider, but a harvestman is not a true spider, no matter how much I wish it were so!

Interesting, I've never heard 'coddle' used in that sense, is it common? To me it means to cook slowly or a dish that is cooked slowly (e.g. Dublin Coddle).
Jan 5th, 2010 at 09:03 GMT
It's not overly common, but it's often used to accuse people of 'coddling' their children when they're oversensitive or overbearing to the point their kids are so sheltered and protected they aren't really experiencing life or the real world. That's the most common usage of it I've encountered, and it's always used negatively every time I've heard it.

I LOVE the use of Harry Mudd in here. Awesome. Not surprised Grodd is missed a lot (just disappointed) but Margot Kidder? Come on.
