I'm still waiting for Bob and Art to show up. And it took me a while to realize you didn't mean "Dot" for waste paper; I once gave my mother-in-law a birthday gift hidden in a box of "Dots" (the candy) filled with those little round whatchamacallits. She liked it, believe it or not.

Since this is an American-based site it's probably safe to assume when in doubt, try the American answer. If that doesn't work try the British answer.

I'm assuming he isn't British, as we don't use dollars, so that would be obvious to us.

It's a High School Musical reference. Two of the main characters are named Troy and Chad and they're both stars of the basketball team.

I have two younger sisters who made me watch this movie back when it was popular and I'm still amazed I remember those guys' names.

A few decidedly ambiguous hints there. Does anywhere else in the world call 100 dollars a Green Fin? Although i suppose the note needs to be green....

I think nearly every flower is used for girls names. The list is rather big actually (some feel very weird, cause it is so uncommon you still just hear the plant, but with many others people have already "forgotten" it is a flower name)

For Decorative Christmas plant, I would suggest accepting Ivy, as well, as it also fits the category and clue. It was what I tried first, and it wasn't until I thought of the song "The holly and the ivy" that I thought of Holly.

I don't think Garland is a plant. Garland can be made of plants, like flowers, or pine, etc.... Garland should have been the next SCOTUS Justice.

Benjamin doesn't quite fit this quiz. All of the others are names which are homonyms with words that have other meanings. Benjamin is a meme from our lifetime referring to the Benjamin on the U.S. bill, no homonym at all. No other words in the list were named for a person.

So what? I didn't get it (I tried many other founding fathers in vain), but I had no problem with the question. Certainly not worth getting upset about.

Indeed, if 90% of the commenters on this site used their energy more productively than getting in a tizzy over trifles, humanity could achieve so much more.

And if anybody dares to point out that it's actually 87.2%, I'll scream.

Whhaat? there are people called confetti???? (the holepunch question. That is the only answer I know it to be)

I thought penny for the shilling. I really don't know the meaning of all the penny, shilling, pence, farthing etc and the dozens of other names for coins/values.

I actually thought bob was pound.. there is so much slang around money..does a few bits and bobs have a connection with it? I looked it up and indeed it is the same thing

For the strong wind, could be storm, though I don't know it it fits the exact specified knots. I checked, it puts storm just above gale, but calls it equivalent with fresh gale. Elsewhere it says this:

"A strict meteorological definition of a terrestrial storm is a wind measuring 10 or higher on the Beaufort scale, meaning a wind speed of 24.5 m/s (89 km/h, 55 mph) or more; however, popular usage is not so restrictive"

Btw I have never heard of the name gale personally
