 6:  Um, er, um....I’m guessing you probably mean “inseam” to fit the category, but the description (top of the waist to where the shoe meets the foot) actually sounds more like the full trouser length instead. Do I smell a replacement question coming?

 3:  Cristo “Change-o”

 6:  The Fall of the House of Usher

 9:  The inevitable Andy “Peloponnesian” Warhol
