I'm still waiting for Bob and Art to show up. And it took me a while to realize you didn't mean "Dot" for waste paper; I once gave my mother-in-law a birthday gift hidden in a box of "Dots" (the candy) filled with those little round whatchamacallits. She liked it, believe it or not.

Added "Bob", which has the added benefit of balancing out the U.S. and U.K. slang.

I never knew 'bob' was specifically a shilling, but here in Ireland people use it as slang for money in general (a few bob).

Since this is an American-based site it's probably safe to assume when in doubt, try the American answer. If that doesn't work try the British answer.

I'm assuming he isn't British, as we don't use dollars, so that would be obvious to us.

You obviously missed the 2000 US presidential election between Gore and Bush. We learned more about hanging chad in Florida than we ever wanted to know. (The controversy was over whether or not to count ballots in which the voting machine hadn't completely punched through and had left bits of the chad "hanging" on the ballot.)

Maybe accept Ben for Benjamin? I'm from New England and $100 bills are more frequently just called Bens, so when that didn't work for me it screwed me up.

It's a High School Musical reference. Two of the main characters are named Troy and Chad and they're both stars of the basketball team.

I have two younger sisters who made me watch this movie back when it was popular and I'm still amazed I remember those guys' names.

A few decidedly ambiguous hints there. Does anywhere else in the world call 100 dollars a Green Fin? Although i suppose the note needs to be green....

For Decorative Christmas plant, I would suggest accepting Ivy, as well, as it also fits the category and clue. It was what I tried first, and it wasn't until I thought of the song "The holly and the ivy" that I thought of Holly.

Benjamin doesn't quite fit this quiz. All of the others are names which are homonyms with words that have other meanings. Benjamin is a meme from our lifetime referring to the Benjamin on the U.S. bill, no homonym at all. No other words in the list were named for a person.
