My favorites were Neutral Milk Hole Gel and Royal Canadian Mounted Umpires.

I was quite tickled by Bob&Tom McKenzie for the two missing officials, but also like "unfriend."

I was really hoping my entry of HBO (Horrible Body Odor) would be a BWA candidate for the PKU answer.
Won some of Ben Stein's money, some of Roger Lodge's, some of Chris Harrison's. None of Alex Trebek's.

Here's hoping we win...it would be my 2nd, and I'd be happy to share the trophy with a friend.
Indeed! I finished in 3rd in LL76… unfortunately, my feat was lost in the crash, but there is evidence on JBoard

The only one that made me seriously laugh out loud was GOING TO DIE/CHOLERA (for "Your ______ of _______"). Yes, despite the spelling error that results.

I couldn't even tell twelvefootgirl about "pull my finger" for the three word sport without literally laughing out loud. :lol: . I appreciated the original question, and missed it with "International Test Cricket", which probably isn't actually a sport name.

There are some good ones, but I don't tend to like the completely contrived attempts, and I assume a lot of them are double entendres I don't get. Amelia Bedelia, twice? I liked the "bottles of beer on the wall", just for the poetry of it.

I found "toe jam football" to be really funny on that one. Took me a bit to remember what it was from.

Can someone explain this one to me?

9. English biologist & anatomist Richard Owen is credited for coining what term, a compound of two Greek words, in his review on British reptiles published in an 1841's Report of the British Association for the Advancement of Science?

I don't know if it goes any deeper than being a Falco reference apropos of nothing.
