Ah, I'm so angry at myself for missing great balls of fire - for some reason my brain decided to say goodness gracious in a Julie Andrews voice rather than a Jerry Lee Lewis voice. There's a hilarious and well-loved commercial in Australia where a father tells his son that the Great Wall of China was built by 'Emperor Nasi Goreng' to keep the RABBITS out :D ("too many rabbits, in China...") That prompt cracked me up =D

Awesome quiz, but just one thing. The Great Wall wasn't built to keep barbarians out. The word barbarian refers to non Greeks as they thought all other languages sounded like barbarbar, especially of those in eastern Europe. Greeks used different words for people outside of Europe as barbarian majorly represented the nomadic tribes of Northern and Eastern Europe. The Greeks referred to the Mongols as the Mongols and used the word barbarian primarily to describe the Boeotians.

Not that I'm advocating this, but you could make the clue "nonsensical and derivative slogan put on red hat worn by racist orangutan" and the answer "Make America Great Again"- that would fit

emcee, they only seem pompous because they have to spend time correcting people who think the word "great" appears somewhere in the name "Donald Trump" and it's hard to do that without coming off as condescending.
