A sheep's wool is called a fleece (as in the Golden Fleece), it's not just the name of a fabric (which is usually made of man-made fibres anyway).

^^Spun polyester should never legally be allowed to be called fleece. Like so many other products, the sheer volume of shysters allows it to become "normal".

TIL Rowling was witty in naming yet another HP thing, and also that chimneys are called flues (what?? NEVER heard that, ever).

A fly and a flea in a flue were imprisoned, so what could they do? Said the flea, 'let us fly'. Said the fly, 'let us flee'. So they flew through the flaw in the flue.

The flue is actually the inner shaft; the chimney is the whole structure.

showers are to rain as freezers is to snow.

Your recommendation for the analogy doesn't qualify as an analogy. Showers don't cause rain to be in liquid in the similar way that freezers cause snow to be in a solid form.

Could brotherly be "fraternity" as well?

Dec 13, 2016
Fraternity is a noun. As brotherly is an adjective, the clue clearly requires an adjective as an answer.

What about "fight" for prolonged and bitter quarrel? Maybe it's not as good as "feud" but it still fits. I think.

Seriously? I've played guitar for 30 years and didn't get "fret." I thought you meant "capo." That is a serious facepalm brainfart.

A flue is a part of a chimney, not another word for a chimney (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/flue). Fireplace would be closer, though it's still only a part of a chimney (the opening at the bottom). I think fireplace should at least be accepted as well as flue.

"A flue is a duct, pipe, or opening in a chimney" - extract from the wiki entry, so clearly a part of a chimney, not another word for chimney. If you asked for 'historical word for chimney' then you might be correct

Better analogy IMHO. My weatherman makes a distinction between flurries and snow showers.

Yes, a shower is more about duration than intensity. Flurries are always light, but can last a while. A shower can be heavy, but is always short.

A lie could also be a falsehood. Fireplace could also be analogous to chimney since a flue is also not a chimney, but the metal vent inside the chimney that controls the amount of air that flows in and out.

Surely 'Freestyling' should be accepted. 'Improvisational rapping' could be a gerund as freestyling is.

A chimney can also be referred to as a funnel - just think of the Titanic. Not always the most reliable of sources but from wiki - The term "funnel" may refer to the chimney or smokestack on a steam locomotive and commonly refers to the same on a ship.
