A stroller is not a pram. I think that the closest thing to a pram that we know is the old fashioned baby carriage.

A pram is commonly-used word, that is short for perambulator.

Actually it isn't a stroller which is usually called a buggy over here. A pram is a baby carriage with 4 wheels and carries the baby lying down like a cot, a cot on wheels. Oh a cot is called a crib in USA, I nearly forgot. As said already 'pram' came from perambulator which is a very Victorian sort of word.

Here in the UK pram is another word for push-chair or baby stroller as Americans would call them.

Maybe that Scottish lake clue should be rephrased to Scottish word for lake. I first thought you meant a lake in Scotland.

The first "s" in "Comic Sans" should be capitalized. Nobody prints in "Times roman" or "Courier new". Failing to capitalize the "s" makes it a somewhat deceptive clue for anyone who doesn't immediately recognize it as the name of a font.

It would be like using "Famous Miami dolphin" as a clue. With the "d" lower-case, instead of thinking of a famous football player, you try to think of an actual aquatic animal that was somehow famous in the Miami area, like Flipper maybe.

Comic sans is a typeface, not a font; comic sans 12pt bold, or Times New Roman 72pt standard, would be a font.

I've almost always heard it "to each their own."

Actually, it should be "to each his own" - Each is singular, therefore, the noun should be also.

Technically, comic sans is a typeface not a font. There's a difference.
