That's not a straightforward fair clue like the others. The guy did plenty of other stuff, and I thought he died eating burgers anyway.

He died on the toilet.

Can you please accept "Nicki" as a type-in for "Minaj"?

"Nicki" does not start with an "M" nor end with a "J".

It's kebab, not kebob...
+1
Level 76
Apr 12, 2016
You are right, kebab is the more usual spelling. However since vowels are rarely written in Arabic signage, kebob is an acceptable transliteration.
+1
Level 70
Nov 22, 2017
No it's not. First of all, Kebab is a Turkish word. When it is written in Arabic, the second 'a' is a long vowel so it IS spelt out in the word. The first 'a' however is not. So if supposedly you were a native Arabic speaker who have never seen the word before you could prounounce it as Kabab or Kobab, but never Kebob. Kabab is actually the common Arabic pronunciation (the original Turkish is actually somewhere between Kebab and Kabab).

Tried Kebab first. Wasn't accepted. Maybe now it will be?

I think it should be changed. Kebab is the common transliteration and I won't be surprised if the kebob spelling was just a typo.

This was great! I got so stuck on Elvis though. I kept thinking it was weird that it wouldn't take "Ernie" of Bert and Ernie. He liked PBandB too, right?

possibly, but his name doesn't end with an s, so it doesn't fit the quiz
+1
Level 67
Aug 14, 2019
yes but when you are on the banana question, you havent read the dragon question yet have you. So it completely makes sense to get stuck when something else works (fits the clue, start with the right letter and is 5 letters long) too.

when people ask that some alternate needs to be accepted, yes thén the response that it doesnt fit is relevant

Could you please also accept "Argon" and "Radon" for Noble Gases, as they also contain 5 letters.

The first comments were in 2015 though, 2,5 years before your comment. Probably werent high level back then yet.

And you don't read with your fingers, having read the title (correctly) is no prerequisite for the link to work. But besides that t here is a "random" button. So you can be taken to a quiz before knowing the title.

There were plenty of gulags outside of Siberia. Please just say "USSR Prison Camp"

The answer is obvious, but that doesn't make it correct...

Obtuse is not the "opposite" of acute, they are just different.

It's like saying x rays are the opposite of gamma rays.
