I have never come across the word rube in over 50 years of speaking and reading English, so I've learned a new word today.

You know what you look like to me, with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube. A well-scrubbed, hustling rube with a little taste. Good nutrition has given you some length of bone, but you're not more than one generation from poor white trash, are you, Agent Tolerated?

It is a nickname for Reuben, but no idea why that name was connected to a country bumpkin. Back when 98% of the population lived on farms, I'm not sure why a popular given name was singled out to disparage.

The German word for turnip has the "rube" sound in it. Considering the phrase seems to have become popular at about the time a lot of German/Germanic immigration to America, non-German speakers might have used to mean "dumb as a turnip".

This was a challenging one. It's hard to guess the wanted word when you don't even know what the definition means. I'm not complaining though, it's always nice to learn something new.

I love the quiz (I got a perfect score! Words are my thing), but I gotta ask: why did you accept "yahoo" for "yokel"? Yahoo, not ending in "L", doesn't chain onto "lunar". Yes, I am accusing you of being too lenient. Nice change of pace, eh?

The least-guessed answer was tough for me (shocking, I know). "rascal" and "scamp" both gave me the impression of a child, but the answer is not a word I associate with children.

After Tryst, which I never got, I completely lost pace and it made the quiz much harder.

I was IRATE that I could not get the angry question, and I just read the comment that this was a Chain quiz. Double face palm for me.

"Zip" is neither five letters, nor ends in H. Otherwise, good point.
