Jeopardy keeps it alive with its "Potent Potables" category.

Please--associating the BeeGees with disco is like associating Pat Boone with rock and roll. Earth Wind & Fire would be a much better choice; I'd settle for Ohio Players or Chic or Donna Summers. But choosing the BeeGees is an insult to the music and those who performed it.

Uhm, what? Even if you spelled it correctly (ciao), it would still be Italian, while hola is Spanish.

The Diego one threw me off, seeing as their are dozens of that analogy for Texas, but I guess it is the most well known.

Agree, except I couldn't figure out why Canton wasn't accepted for the language analogy. Slapped myself silly when I saw the answer.

Why is "Hasta Luego" not acceptable?
+1
level 48

Hasta luego means until then, not goodbye.

But adios means farewell, whereas au revoir literally means "until we see each other again". Adieu would be a better French word to correspond with adios, both literally and by connotation.

Never heard the term numismatologist - I thought the term was numismatist.

Agreed. But seems to be another US/UK variation. Merriam-Webster doesn't like numismatist.

I had some trouble with spelling some of the answers. Raeggae, Raggae, regge... Posseidon, Posseydon... Managed to get the first one, but after the 2 failed tries for Poseidon I thought it's just the wrong answer. I guess I have to just go with the simplest spelling next time.

But that would be analog to "eatable," not to "edible."
