You mean that nicotine and doilly are named after people? Heretofore, I will assume that every object or substance is named after someone
. Good job, Thorsten...
I trended toward tobacco as a nightshade, but didn't parse the clue sufficiently to get to nicotine, which I would have discounted because how could they know the active ingredient in the 1600's and whoever found it would surely take naming rights. I chose laudanum, figuring it as a poppy derivative, but at least it sounded name-y.
I knew who they wanted for the Fiddler, but didn't know how to spell "Ya ba dibba dibba dibba dibba dibba dibba dum". I thought it would go higher than 54%.
I got crushed by the orange juice answer. I ignore prostituted stadium names. I will try to ignore the Chiefs home turf that was one of the last holdouts to pimp naming rights.
I am in the 4% that missed Jungle Book. I'll probably never know why it was so easy because it never hit my radar as a teenager.
I picked Dukes of Hazzard because I never watched it and the only name I know is Daisy Duke
. If the clue said Reverend Jim, I'm all over it. It was a good clue.
The chaos rundle is starting out well and everybody seems to be defending with minimum feck. I have a DE of 0.000 at present, since there's only been two missed questions of 18 so far for me to place zeroes on. Mahatma is off to a hot start, and BigDaddyMatty is in the groove so far. It will take a full turnover of the schedule to sort out the most feckless and least ept.
