The number of comments regarding this question is mind-boggling. Before you comment, just look at the state and see if it shares any letters with "Mackerel". It's really quite simple; there's no subjectivity. It's as black & white as a question can be. You don't need to Google it or Wikipedia it. It's right there in front of you.

Mackerel.... I write pub quizzes here in UK, have 8 or 9 sheets of questions, 20 to a sheet, questions with answers that contain no letters of Mackerel... types of fish, dogs, birds, fruit, veg, TV/film characters, songs, bands, olympic sports, towns, cities, countries, there are loads... because of the nature of the "question" i usually have one or two answers just to prove there is an answer, and ask the quizzers for their suggestions, as long as it fits the criteria, it's ok.. dont really know how to actually make a quiz on here, so if anyone wants any of these mackerel things, message me on here with your email address and i'll send you a couple of dozen at random.... and send some answers a week later...

"The city of Calexico lies on the U.S. side of the California / Mexico border. What, appropriately, is the name of its sister city on the Mexican side of the border?" Logically, the answer should be "Mexifornia". Saying "appropriately" suggests that the naming convention on the US side is also used on the Mexico side.

So now I know it's correctly spelled "Aston". But when I was taking the quiz, it made so much more sense to spell both words with the same ending ... Astin Martin. And yeah, sadly I also tried typing it more than once. Oh, the pressure!! LOL
