bird: Crazy = Loon.
Sep 27th, 2010 at 21:18 GMT
Isstvan: I added it as an alternate. I had actually thought about that at first, but was thinking that "loonY" was the word for crazy. But you're right, loon would also fit. :)
Sep 27th, 2010 at 22:10 GMT
Maybe you could also accept "Polk" for puncture - but put the little asterisk by it as well. Also you may want to restate "laundering 2000 pounds" because it could be read as 2000 pounds meaning money. For a while I was trying to think of a President's name with the word felony in it.........
Sep 28th, 2010 at 01:42 GMT
Fun quiz. Thanks for giving us enough time. Never heard of skittles in terms of bowling. Learn something new every day.
Sep 28th, 2010 at 04:51 GMT
You should change "woodcutter" to "carpenter".
Sep 28th, 2010 at 13:16 GMT
@RS89: I considered "carpenter", but I thought woodcutter fit the word better. A carpenter is one who constructs or repairs with wood; and a sawyer is one who saws/cuts wood, as one employed in a lumber camp or sawmill. @jeopardybound: hmmm...the money laundering didn't occur to me. It's true that some people might think of that. But a lot of people are getting it, so I'll wait and see how that one goes. As for Polk, perhaps some local dialects pronounce it "poke", so I'll add it as an alternate. Thanks. :)

I believe the word for cross a stream is fjord, so you might want an asterisk there. love the quiz.
Sep 28th, 2010 at 23:57 GMT
sobdennis: Fjord, or fiord, is a noun for a body of water. But the verb which means to cross water at a shallow place is spelled ford. Like in the Sound of Music--"climb every mountain...ford every stream..." :)
Sep 29th, 2010 at 04:43 GMT
Maybe accept "piece of cake" for triviality? It's a bit of a stretch in the parts of speech area, but...
Sep 29th, 2010 at 12:27 GMT
Pyrophorus: I hadn't thought of that, but it does kind of fit..sort of. I guess I'll add it in case anyone else thinks of it. :)
Oct 4th, 2010 at 04:50 GMT
Good quiz. I don't think "grins" is really the best clue for Snickers...a snicker is more of like laughing softly or chuckling.
Oct 5th, 2010 at 10:05 GMT
It's terrible, but for "marijuana" in the kitchen, my first attempt was "oregano." *Headdesks*

Micro-wave! That's so cute!
Oct 7th, 2010 at 04:30 GMT
Haha. I actually guessed "Cleanington" for presidents.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 04:33 GMT
Ahhh I love apples to apples but apparently didn't know those two types. D:
Oct 7th, 2010 at 04:35 GMT
how about Arches for "large curve" ?
Oct 7th, 2010 at 04:36 GMT
Great quiz! Maybe accept Bombe Alaska for 'roasted 49th state', as that's what we call it in Australia.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 04:37 GMT
And what about Chuckles for small laughs? Those are candies, too.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 04:41 GMT
i could not for the life of me figure out the "laundering 2000 pounds" because i was thinking laundering meaning money laundering. it never once dawned on me the other defition of laundering......on a side note i second the chuckles (and kind of agree with arches too)- might also want to accept "dove" for "get down quickly" even though dove is past tense of dive and dove (bird) and dove (action) don't sound the same. i suggest for a sequel if one is done (as much as i hate the team)- young female horses*- phillies (fillies)
Oct 7th, 2010 at 04:52 GMT
(Body part on the head*) (5th pick in 2008 NBA draft) this (Hunted animals).

I would have loved to see what you made of "Grand Tetons" as a national park..
Oct 7th, 2010 at 04:56 GMT
Chuckles should count for the Snickers clue.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 05:02 GMT
Herb could also be marijuana.

Technically, Old Ironsides is a frigate, not a battleship. @dje: go 'dores!
Oct 7th, 2010 at 05:19 GMT
But, marijuana is something that's ALREADY in my kitchen!

@srs_house- you just made my day. and @neight- HAHAHA

"Do you have something in your pocket?" "A chunky."
Oct 7th, 2010 at 07:00 GMT
cannot BELIEVE I missed pot! I was sitting here trying to think of every possible and obscure alternative name, and of course, its the MOST OBVIOUS one! haha!
Oct 7th, 2010 at 07:02 GMT
nice quiz.. had never heard of the skittles/mini bowling pins or the apples to apples game. :) Got thrown when I saw Snickers when I entered Chuckles & the loon one too.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 07:41 GMT
nice quiz. although you shoudl have included 'alien firearm' for reagan in the presidents section!
Oct 7th, 2010 at 07:46 GMT
These are fun. I suggest using the crossword-clue convention of putting a question mark after the clue to indicate puns & wordplay, instead of sticking an asterisk in.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 10:47 GMT
Presidents lasanga lover=Garfield
Oct 7th, 2010 at 11:22 GMT
I don't understand the 'miniature bowling pins' clue - is this just a term that I'm not familiar with? FYI, I'm American, grew up in the midwest, now in New England.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 11:34 GMT
Things I tried for marijuana: weed, drugs, toaster, herb. I think the last two should count! LOL. But, no, I didn't think of pot...derp
Oct 7th, 2010 at 11:36 GMT
@shel99 - from Wikipedia: "Skittles is an old European lawn game, a variety of bowling, from which ten-pin bowling, duckpin bowling, and candlepin bowling in the United States, and five-pin bowling in Canada are descended."
Oct 7th, 2010 at 12:27 GMT
really clever. excellent quiz.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 12:45 GMT
What the heck is "Chunky"? Glad that's the only one that I'd never heard of.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 13:13 GMT
@TL33s: You never ate a Chunky? It's peanuts and raisins in a small block of chocolate. Find some. They're delicious.

Napoleon? Who's he to have a cake? He was a ruthless war monger. Might as well get a Mengele.
Oct 7th, 2010 at 14:40 GMT
OK, Harry Potter is a bit of a stretch, :), and personally, I've never heard of apples to apples, even though I recognized both varieties of apples, but that's just me, but I have to say that using the clue "elderly housekeeper" for Old Maid is one of the most enlightened utterances to roll past me in a VERY long time, and I thank you. This quiz was A LOT of fun, intelligently constructed, and I look forward to more @RachWho -- you have the wrong quiz!! :D
