Not bragging, I'm not American, and I had no clue what the question was about. Just messes with the scores when locally famous or infamous people are mentioned on the quizzes.

Well, I've never seen / read Harry Potter, so you can imagine how that messes with my scores. It's just part of the game.

I'm not American, but I know of Newt Gingrich. A name like 'Newt' tends to stick in the head.

Not American, but I do remember him being in the news quite a bit over here in Britain in the 90's. Now Ron Swanson on the other hand, has me totally baffled.

My dad listened to her all the time. She was the only jazz singer I could tolerate, and as a result, that song is STILL stuck in my head for all this time.

On every quiz with names I don't know I always guess Smith, Jones, Johnson, Jackson, Brown, Davis, Williams, Wilson, and Thomas. They often give me at least one correct answer. Worked again this time, too.

I just finished watching an episode of Spaced, so it was a bit of a coincidence having the Nick Frost question in here.
