Enough people would think of Jessica Simpson, decide that would be too obvious, then remember she has a less-popular sister. A classic TD blunder.

I was pretty sure Ashlee Simpson would be the sheep, and O.J. would have scored a couple from people who literally couldn’t think of anyone else.
my thoughts as well
Really?? I haven’t heard her anything about her in a looooong time!

I’m glad I didn’t ask “does the recipient have to be a person” for Q2; they’d have been onto my answer if I had.
I picked Ashlee and Jessica's dad Joe. I also thought that Ashlee would sheep for that reason and just crossed my fingers that their dad was just obscure enough to not sheep and got lucky.

There are a lot of Joe Simpsons. (One of them, the color commentator for Atlanta Braves baseball, crossed my mind for this question.)

I needed him to be a correct answer since he let me down by being Sir Not-Appearing-in-One-Episode-of-Westworld in TD 349.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow, when I find out what a Scottish council area is.

3. SCOTLAND (32)
Name any Scottish council area
Source: Wikipedia

Q3 ANSWERS
Show
Wikipedia: For local government purposes, Scotland is divided into 32 areas designated as "council areas". The council areas have been in existence since 1 April 1996, under the provisions of the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994. Historically, Scotland has been divided into 34 counties or shires. Although these no longer have any administrative function, they are still used to some extent in Scotland for cultural and geographical purposes.

Wasn't sure, but figured I'd name the most obscure city in Scotland I could think of. Thanks, morbeedo, for giving me the combo for my response of Dumfries. Got lucky because Inverness and Aberdeen were the other two I was weighing.

My Simpson answer was actually Homer's mother. I had no idea an author shared the name.

Speaking of sharing names, I admit I had a bit of an unfair advantage on Q2. Now you all know what the R and J stand for.

Ahhh, I’m not a big Simpsons fan, so that went right past me. I like the show but haven’t seen enough to know all the characters

Well, I lucked out there. I also didn't know what a Scottish council area was, so I just picked a place and hoped it was one of them.

I switch from $1200 to $600 right before submitting. :oops:

Wild guess like many of us on that one I'm sure. Did you actually include -shire in your response, though? Because I know I didn't include City in mine, and I surely didn't know they'd have been different council areas.

I did. I didn't know they'd be different answers (or both correct), but I thought if a council area is anything like a county in England, the -shire was more likely to be right.
