Do it. Just like on Millionaire, it's always fun to watch someone get eliminated on the first question

Right. So implicit in question #1 is that the person has to be well known or notable in some way; they can’t be your co-worker or pub trivia buddy

I included (what this person is known for) in my entry, both to prove it wasn’t a name I was making up, and to hedge against the possibility of multiple people sharing the name.

I appreciate you!

I get that the game is Think Different, but we have to agree on a set of basic principles. Don’t try and break the game, people!

“This person warrants their own Wikipedia/IMDB/Baseball Reference (etc.) entry” is a baseline.

In any case, I suspect the sheep for Q1 will score higher than the sheep for Q2, which is atypical for this format.

Unless you're going to allow do-overs on question 1, I'm already out. I submitted my answers before the question was edited and clarified.

No one is out! I’m going to look at the responses and ask some of you to resubmit

Look, I have a team of unpaid interns who are supposed to play test all these questions before they go live. Needless to say, they’re all fired!!!

Rats! I nearly said O.J. Simpson, but I figured he might sheep. Instead, I chose the actual sheep.
Teems with quiet fun.

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.

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’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.
