While Stark Industries was responsible for the creation of many weapons I'm not sure I would classify it as a weapons company. Maybe R&D or Defense Contractor.

R&D and Defense Contractor are polite ways of saying weapons companies.

Geez, I tried "innkeeper" for Fawlty, which is more appropriate, but instead of complaining about my lack of knowledge of synonyms, I just went to typing "hotel" and called it a day.

Only 40% of you remember the old Building and Loan? I've had it with you people.

Aug 22, 2019
well, it's savings and loan. and I tried several other things including money lending and just "loans" before trying savings and loan, people probably don't remember the specific term used in the movie, especially since these days savings and loan services would mostly just be called banking.

I couldn't figure out why Candy Factory didn't work for Wonka. Gobstoppers are not chocolate.
+1
level 76
May 29, 2018
The 1971 movie was called "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory". The book (and 2005 movie) was called "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". While the real-life company may sell non-chocolate products, the fictional business was called a chocolate factory.

Name the TYPE of business. Candy would be the type of business. It's called a chocolate factory, but he makes candy.
+1
level 77
May 13, 2019
He makes chocolate and happens to invent other things too, the business is a chocolate factory. FYI it was written in the UK where it is very uncommon to refer to chocolate as candy (that would be hard sugar products) and it was inspired by his experience with a chocolate factory (Cadbury's) while at school.

prawn company was also my guess.
+1
level 66
Aug 22, 2019
I agree that prawn should be accepted. But I can't help but think the quote sounds a bit strange using prawn instead of shrimp: "Dey's uh, prawn-kabobs, prawn creole, prawn gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple prawn, lemon prawn, coconut prawn, pepper prawn, prawn soup, prawn stew, prawn salad, prawn and potatoes, prawn burger, prawn sandwich. That- that's about it."
+1
level 42
Aug 23, 2019
That's why I didn't complain it wasn't accepted. They always say "shrimp" in the film, therefore it's only logical to accept shrimp and not prawn. I was just getting ashamed of myself, as by living in Britain I forgot most of the words used as synonim in the U.S.A. and uncommon there.

Candy for Wonka?

Yeah - I tried candy factory, confections, and sweets before getting the more obvious answer.

I think I typed "burger joint," "Krusty Krab," "food," and "fast food restaurant" before getting Mr. Krabs with simply restaurant.

Skylar also helped run her husband's meth business.

Surprised J Peterman is so low down, given that it's a real company (and therefore doesn't really fit in this quiz anyway).

Should magazine also count for Mr. Peterman?

You should add Trump to this quiz. His life as a successful businessman and real estate developer was total fiction. The only thing that man has ever been successful at, other than winning the electoral college, is losing obscene amounts of his daddy's money.

I couldn't get Willy Wonka because I kept typing "candy factory". In my defense, gopstoppers are not chocolate. And neither was that gum that blew up Violet. Not to mention the burping drink.
