love this quiz-- super creative
Nov 12th, 2010 at 00:11 GMT
Great quiz - but being a vegetarian didn't help me even come close to finishing!
Nov 12th, 2010 at 01:00 GMT
Great ladder! (Although the second last clue "Dandy or swell, to a Brit" doesn't quite fit right to me (Brit who's lived 5 years in the states). "Dandy" or "swell" mean someone who's vain/showy in their appearance, with overtones of boastful, wealthy, and pretentious, right? So in British terms I'd think of them as closer to "ponce"; but "toff" means much more specifically upper-class and contemptuous of the hoi polloi — so there's an overlap in pretentiousness, but being a toff is much less about appearance and more about social attitudes.)

@Pit_trout Thanks. Yeah, TOFF was a new word to me, so I just looked it up in my American dictionary, which said it was a British term for a Dandy or a Swell. The dictionary implies someone who is well-dressed, but if you come up with a short clue that you like, and you think other people will, I'd love to put it in there!

Your new clue sounds good to me; hopefully other Brits will agree :-)

the 2nd last clue had me baffled, even to the extent that I forgot to try to deduce it from the last... nice quiz! go veggies
Mar 19th, 2011 at 13:37 GMT
I agree that the new clue makes sense.

Take out a minute maybe?
Oct 14th, 2011 at 22:09 GMT
There's a typo in "Israeli" that needs to be corrected.
Oct 14th, 2011 at 23:01 GMT
I was sailing through at a good clip with about 15 seconds left and then I hit ....ummm ...what? Never heard of the word "toff." Glad to see a quiz that gives an edge to our friends across the pond.
Oct 15th, 2011 at 00:04 GMT
Beer is fermented barley (or another grain), the hops are not fermented. They are added for flavor and as a preservative. Just sayin.
Oct 15th, 2011 at 00:46 GMT
Good quiz! But nothing will separate me and my bacon, sorry.
Oct 15th, 2011 at 00:58 GMT
Beef and pork are types of meat, not "dishes".
Oct 15th, 2011 at 09:20 GMT
I didn't get "wood" - time to stop ignoring those spam emails?
Oct 15th, 2011 at 11:23 GMT
No edge to the British - there's a question about presumably American washing powder!
Oct 15th, 2011 at 12:53 GMT
@Erod, it's easy enough to work back, though. @JustANiceGuy, as a Brit, I can honestly say I've never heard ANYONE in this day and age say "toff", so no edge here.

Oct 15th, 2011 at 16:59 GMT
Gotta love working "THE HOFF" in there somewhere. Just don't hassle him. :)
Oct 15th, 2011 at 17:27 GMT
Hooray for oboes!
Oct 15th, 2011 at 19:59 GMT
Never heard of toff? Have you never read an WWII Australian's vivid description of his thoughts on a British Army Lieutenant who just ticked him off for not having enough shine on his boots?
Oct 15th, 2011 at 21:01 GMT
wish there was an option to extend the time so that I could complete the quiz, or at least not show the answers when the time is up... these word ladders are so fun but my brain works too slow, I didn't even get halfway through...
Oct 15th, 2011 at 21:30 GMT
John Creasey had a detective hero called The Toff featured in a series of books entitled "The Toff at Butlin's", etc.
[Explaining Butlin's holiday camps for the masses, for those who wish not to consult Wikipedia, is a task for another post.]
Oct 16th, 2011 at 04:31 GMT
lol "Fop or pretentious upperclass person" I thought, "We call them many things, most of which aren't suitable for a sporcle quiz."
Oct 16th, 2011 at 13:56 GMT
Could have worked "fast" into the food theme by using another clue ;-)
Oct 16th, 2011 at 17:49 GMT
This made me hungry for a salad. :)

Oct 17th, 2011 at 19:02 GMT
Really clever quiz, sprout! Thanks.
Oct 18th, 2011 at 19:56 GMT
Veal, beef, and pork are not dishes. Filet mignon is a dish. Veal, beef, and pork are types of meat.
Oct 19th, 2011 at 00:08 GMT
There are a few comments here about 'toff' which I had no problem with, but I only got 'wonk' by working backwards!
Nov 10th, 2011 at 14:58 GMT
My guess for a person knowledgeable about politics was "FINK."

I feel like I should have known the british one, but I've never heard the word toff .. Cool word though
Jun 4th, 2012 at 20:32 GMT
if i had more time i would have gotten more
Oct 15th, 2012 at 12:44 GMT
Nice to see that someone knows that a pescetarian eats fish. Can't stand people who eat fish yet call themselves vegetarians.
Oct 20th, 2012 at 19:26 GMT
What, you didn't want to work "fowl" in there somewhere?
Dec 27th, 2012 at 03:22 GMT
Yes, glad to see someone knows the difference between a vegetarian and a pescatarian! Awesome quiz, BTW!
Mar 24th, 2013 at 17:16 GMT
I've heard of WISK, but my first thought was WASH. It would be a very straightforward name for a detergent.
