Congratulations for the #100! I bet someone is already hyped for #200. I pronounce guerilla as in Spanish (where the word came from), that sounds like "gaireeya", but then again, English isn't my native language.

I don't pronounce guerilla like gorilla, either, but there's not exactly a lot of other words that would fit that answer.

I was thinking of impressionists like Rich Little and tried Cary Grant, John Wayne, James Cagney, Edward G. Robinson and everyone else I could think of. Totally forgot about Elvis impersonators.

Doesn't Delaware only border Maryland?

As a Virginian I can say that one's not true. We're bordered by DC and Maryland but not Delaware. But yes the part of Delaware that sticks out at the top and includes Wilmington (many Delaware-ites call it The Semicircle) borders both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Gorilla and Guerilla. Must be an American quiz then. Next time it will be stated that Bordeaux and Puerto are homophones, too :P

How is that? Bor-dux and porter don't rhyme. Just joking. Bring on the angry comments anyways.

I added (to some) to the clue because I don't know how Brits pronounce guerilla. In the typical American accent, they are homophones:

I think that Babylon was the name of a city, the name of the empire should really be Babylonian.

It's...complicated. After a millennium of control by Sumer, Assyria, Akkad, and Assyria, Babylon started as a city-state that became an empire under Hammurabi around 1700 BC. This is the Babylonian Empire, or First or Old Babylonian Empire. After his death it declined fairly rapidly to Assyrian (Neo-Assyrian) hegemony. Nebuchadnezzar I was a monarch of this reduced empire, around 1100 BC. In 626 BC, the Neo-Babylonian (New, Second) Empire formed around Babylonia. Nebuchadnezzar II was the famous second ruler of this empire (600 BC), unrelated to Nebuchadnezzar I. 539 BC, Cyrus the Great's Achaemenid Empire conquers it; his son-in-law Darius the Great in 522 and 523 put down restorationist rebellions by minor royals named Nebuchadnezzar III and Nebuchadnezzar IV. So, frankly, Babylon is close enough!
