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.

I never knew 'bob' was specifically a shilling, but here in Ireland people use it as slang for money in general (a few bob).

You obviously missed the 2000 US presidential election between Gore and Bush. We learned more about hanging chad in Florida than we ever wanted to know. (The controversy was over whether or not to count ballots in which the voting machine hadn't completely punched through and had left bits of the chad "hanging" on the ballot.)

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.

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.
