Good quiz! I'm wondering if dolphin could be acceptable. I missed dauphin cos I couldn't spell it. And after all, dauphin is French for dolphin.

But dolphin is not the word for the heir to the French throne.

I know Shakespeare uses "Dolphin" for Dauphin in Henry V, and probably in more of his plays too. I think it should be accepted. Also, since the quiz is in English, the English answer should be correct.

It's not the same word. Dauphin was a title related to the region "Dauphiné", whose etymology has nothing to do with that of a dolphin. It's just a coincidence in French...

I second that. Dauphin it is, dauphin it should be.

In the Shakespeare play, Exeter says "dolphin" instead of "Dauphin" to show in what little regard the French prince was held. Shakespeare does not use dolphin this way in any other work.

I got this wrong but I've only ever heard it as Dauphin and to accept anything else would just be incorrect.

I only thought of 'Drake' since I was thinking of a male duck, seeing a lot of animals in the quiz. I didn't even know YOLO came from a rapper. I only saw it popping up as a joke all over the internet :I!

Now, a Viper isn't a Dodge, but a product of SRT. Why, who knows, except honchos at MOPAR are trying to re-brand and re-image things to get away from bad news.

I owned a Viper for 13 years up until it was stolen by Serbians. It was definitely a Dodge. SRT and Dodge are both owned by Chrysler (now Fiat), and SRT produces and tunes vehicles for all of Chrysler's brands. The Dodge moniker was only dropped from the Viper for 2013 and 2014, when it was called the SRT Viper, but in 2015 it went back to being called the Dodge Viper.

I've never watched them, but not for any particular personal reason - it just never worked out in my schedule. As for starting to watch them now, I'm getting older and I'm getting more selective about the things I cram into the years I have remaining, - plus it would take away from my Jetpunk time. :)

Except it doesn't. There are allowances for many spelling errors on these quizzes and in all fairness Duchess is pronounced Dutch ess, if those folk were verbally quizzed with that question their spoken answer, would be correct.

Aug 3, 2018
This may be one of those times when both answers are correct. You would probably use "Il Duce" when speaking about him (Mussolini) and simply "Duce" when speaking to him. I believe the word is similar to the royal title of Duke in meaning and use.
