Given that the desired response started with "Who", I'm certain that my response of "Who are the Mormons?" would have been acceptable.

I don't know that verse of SSB, but I guessed correctly based on the way it scans.

I think I said "knickers", which, now that I think about it, aren't named for a body part.
