Kind of like how "teepee," "pajamas," and "karaoke" aren't REAL English words because they were words in other languages first :-P

How does that make them fake English words? Almost every word in English comes from some other language, either German or French or Latin or Celtic etc. That doesn't mean those words are not real English words or that they don't have English spellings.

I'm gonna have to disagree with ya, jimandnat: 75-80% of English words are "non-native" – i.e. NOT from Old-English or Germanic sources. A good chunk of English words come down from Latin, but usually through French or other Romance languages; the rest of the foreign loaner word are from Greek and a smattering other random languages. It's fair to say that German and OLD English are "sister" languages (at least in the way that you mean it: "derived from a common source"), but not German and MODERN English. Only a quarter-ish of Modern English words come from Old English and Germanic (but not Modern German) sources.

I found it silly that "chimp" was accepted for "chimpanzee" since the whole point of the quiz is words that have double E in them. Just tickled my funny bone.

Since this was an update, I'm gonna second that the reindeers' names need to be capitalized, and also point out that chimpanzees are not humanity's sole closest living relative anymore. Around 6 years ago or so, it became widely accepted that we are as equally related to bonobos, and then to confuse matters, as of last year, it now looks like we're actually closest to bonobos. Maybe change the hint to "One of humanity's closest living relatives"?

it is 'humorously' requested at concerts all over the world for any band from established act to pub covers band, I think the humour comes from the fact that the song is soooo long

I guess out country must be the only place in the world then where they skip that custom, and all the bands that come here just happen to be bands that dont do that...

Pretty sure you are majorly exaggerating... perhaps it has happened outside of the US on a few occasions, (but I feel like the crowd was probably american, or iniated by the band.. cause honestly I have never heard or seen such a thing in all the countries I have been to, which might not be a much as some, but if it is as big as you claim i would have had to come across it..) But definitely nothing remotely close to the picture you paint.

A lot of quizzes here are indeed US-centric. This particular quiz wasn't overly US-centric though, to be fair.

I suggest that the definition of matinee should be broader than just a movie. In Australia the most common usage is for afternoon performances of plays/theatre productions.

Never even heard of freebird and I have been to plenty of rockconcerts. must be a local thing. This is the second time I come across this on a quiz ( I assume it was the same song last time, but well it left no impression, didnt remember it)
