I had "bill cash" in mind for some reason and typed that. Accidentally typed a random sequence of maybe two-three letters on top of that and got Benjamin Netanyahu off the back of it. How strange.

Not on here anymore, but I know it was Brian Eno (though I'm not sure whether he is Brian or Bryan). I sincerely hope that neither ABBA nor Zoolander replaced it (the two I missed).

Yeah, so? That's true of lots of different historical figures. Stalin, for example, was Ioseb Besarionis dzе Jughashvili.

I enjoyed this quiz but as always, I bemoan that nearly all the answers are from pop-culture, sports, or politics. Would be nice to see a few answers from the fields of science, literature, art, etc.

A minor correction – David Bowie judged the 'walk-off' in 'Zoolander'. Billy Zane was present, supporting Derek, but did not judge the competition.

The type in is pretty lenient, thankfully. I went with something like Ulvyeuoiueas and got it.

I admit I won't commit that ABBA answer to memory.

I just retried it with uvula, which doesn't work. I may have remembered that.

Computer didn't accept Bjorn :( PS I thought the o had a strike through it, not an umlaut over it?

It's Swedish, hence the umlaut. The slash is Danish or Norwegian.

That ‘Sultan of Swat’ clue is bloody tricky for those of us not from north America. The sport in question has virtually no presence in Europe and whilst I knew the answer when I saw it, I have never heard him referred to by those nicknames. I dare say I’m not alone.
