I had to google the spelling of Honah Lee. Wikipedia states that the original author, Lenny Lipton, spelled it Honalee. The lyrics search turned up additional spellings of Honali, and Honnah Lee, and there is an actual place in Hawaii named Hanalei, which is how I kept trying to spell it. I realize that's probably more than any of you care to know about it.

Actually, I appreciate it! I tried it so many different ways before googling it myself. The first result showed it to be "Honali", but when I tried that, it didn't work. The next result showed "Honah Lee", which did, obviously. Would be nice to have some leeway on that, especially since it's not a real place with an official, need-to-know spelling.

Honalee - that's how I spelt it too. Since it is a lyric in a song, is there a 'correct spelling'? I think you should accept some leeway as others have said!

I've been to Hanalei. It was like stepping into a hippie time-machine. Volkswagen buses with flowers painted on them. The whole enchilada. Has GOT to have been the inspiration for the location in the song, regardless of how the lyricist spelled it. And if so, anyone who thinks "Puff the Magic Dragon" isn't about smoking weed, is......smoking weed.

The battle of Hastings didn't actually happen in Hastings, it was about 7 miles away in a town called Battle.

So....was it actually the Battle of Battle? Or did the Hastings happen at Battle? Or was it the Hastings of Battle? Or the Hasting Battle of Hastings, at Battle? Okay, I'll stop....

However, the town didn't exist at that point, and the nearest standing town at the time was Hastings, as William I razed Crowhurst. So, in the history books, the actual location is technically hastings.

I imagine most battles actually took place a short way out of the towns that gave them their names. The only exception I can think of is St Albans (1455), which I think was a direct attack on the town.

Don't forget the infamous Battle of Bunker Hill from the American Revolutionary War, which was actually fought on nearby Breed's Hill. Of course, the immediate environs of Boston has no more hills, as they were all leveled for landfill to build an airport, but I digress.

Hey, this is not my own nitpick, but I just did a quiz earlier today (naturally I can't remember which one) where the clue referred to voodou. There was a discussion in the comments about the spelling of voodou vs. voodoo, and the explanation given was that voodou is what is practiced in Haiti, whereas voodoo reflects its form as practiced in Louisiana. I can not speak to the veracity of that information, only that it's JetPunk canon on some other starred quiz.

Wife: "New Shimmer is a floor wax."
Husband: "No, New Shimmer is a dessert topping."
Wife: "It's a floor wax!"
Husband: "It's a dessert topping!"
Wife: "It's a floor wax, I'm telling you!"
Husband: "It's a dessert topping, you cow!"

Unexpected Spokesperson shows up, interrupting: "Hey, hey, hey, calm down you two. New Shimmer's a floor wax and a dessert topping! Here, I'll spray some on your mop....and some on your butterscotch pudding."

Husband: (taking a spoonful) "Mmm, tastes terrific!"
Wife: (as she mops floor) "And just look at that shine!"

Unexpected Spokesperson: (addressing audience) "New Shimmer. For the greatest shine you ever tasted!"
