    That moment when, after ten minutes of searching for the princess you missed, certain that you never could have missed a planet or lake, you finally realize you missed...Earth.

    @poppysmom Can we please leave politics and bashing parties out of Sporcle? There are jillion sites out there where you can peddle your favorite brand of political vitriol. Please take it there.

    Tough for Brits. Several of the logos relate to products that are not sold in Europe. We would never describe someone cutting a hedge as a landscaper (topiarist, gardener). Ladies fingers are vegetables (okra). Lima beans are called butter beans here.

    Fiona is SO a princess! She's a princess in Shrek, that hugely popular film by Disn.... oh

    Perhaps accept lemon? There's no way of knowing that's not a gin and tonic in the glass. Without any scale, the ladyfingers (see @zeppelinoid above) look like ciabatta - so 'loaf' was my answer.

    If you're going to have a 'logos' category, then you should have logos from companies that exist in more than country, not just in the USA.
