I've always heard "The jack of all trades is master of none," but that was not accepted.

@imclala I will add that to the list. I have a bunch of different acceptable answers for that graph, but not that one.

On number 4, accept "never falls" for "doesn't fall"?
As to which quiz I prefer, well it's six of one, half a dozen of the other. (Subtle hint for an extra graph.)

@rockgolf i've added your answer, also thanks for the suggestion, I will try to work it in to the next quiz

Here is a sequel, if you are enjoying these: Sequel is up: http://www.sporcle.com/games/pgrossma/figures-of-speech-iii

I'd love to see all the images together in one quiz, perhaps in a slide show format!
Aug 9th, 2011 at 22:17 GMT
You should accept "didn't" for "doesn't". Nevertheless, amazing quiz!
Aug 9th, 2011 at 22:49 GMT
@zcg1085, I've added that answer, thanks for the tip
Aug 10th, 2011 at 06:47 GMT
Fun quiz! But I think it would be good to accept "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch" and "tanstaafl" for that answer. See, e.g, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanstaafl.
Aug 10th, 2011 at 11:33 GMT
@zigfreid, added both of those. Keep the suggestions coming and I will continue to try to accommodate them

#2 doesn't make much sense. It takes an entire week for all the money to be spent.
Aug 10th, 2011 at 19:23 GMT
why does a week not make sense? I would call that soon.

@Hejman, working on compiling the three quizzes into a single slide show quiz.
Aug 11th, 2011 at 22:07 GMT
I have compiled these three quizzes into a single Slide Show based video quiz. I have also added an additional graph to the set that i didn't include in any of the first three quizzes. http://www.sporcle.com/games/pgrossma/figures-of-speech---compiled
