Robin Yount would fit very nicely as Y.

He used to be here but people whined about having an American sports figure on the quiz.

Who the heck is Robin Yount????
+2
Level 73
Nov 13, 2017
I mean, I don't think there is any way he is more obscure than the answers for RI or RQ...

So better to not have any "RY" person than to have one that a number of people don't know?

"Whew! Glad I didn't learn anything new on THAT quiz!"

BTW, Robin Yount is too obscure, but Thorstein Vebler on the "T" quiz isn't? *rolls eyes*

I don't understand. There are people in the world who didn't follow Milwaukee Brewers baseball in the 80s and 90s?

I've definitely heard of the Isley Brothers and Randy Quaid. No idea who Yount is. But the fact that I don't know who he is is not a good reason to exclude him from the quiz.

Just put the most internationally known "y" on the quiz, even if the most known is not very known.

As Im writing this I thought ow! (Thom) Yorke! (Radiohead) But then remembered the first name needs to begin with an e. His full name seems to be Thomas Edward Yorke though ;)

Some people (including myself) weren’t alive in those years.

Level 82
Aug 29, 2019
So because you weren't alive is a good excuse to not learn anything historical? No one who takes these quizzes was alive during the years of Genghis Khan, Charlemagne, Napoleon...

Kind of a bad example. You think this guy will still be known in a couple of hundred years? If not you cant claim he has historical importance. Some people can be extremely famous in a certain time period, but not relevant and forgotten a generation later.

Took me a while to spell RV - maybe some alternatives?

What did you have difficulty with: "Valens"or "Valenzuela?"

Could you not find a better clue for RO then "lesbian comedian"? Is that really what defines her the most? I mean, would you give "Gay actor who played a wizard" as a clue for Ian McKellen?
+6
Level 85
Mar 19, 2018
I don't know if it defines her most, but I can say there's no way I would have known it if the clue were "Comedian and talk show host".

I mean, not for nothing, but Ian McKellen is by far the best answer for that hint.

That is not his point, the point is if that is the best clue for ian mckellen. You switched it around

These are CLUES, not autobiographies! Nothing says it has to "define" the person, just nudge you in the right direction (along with the initials, of course).

The real issue is referring to RO as a "comedian"...

@bks961 and for that very reason, I missed the question. I didn’t know people thought of her as funny.

Let's get offended by describing someone as a lesbian shall we?

Jeez, there was no derogatory implication, just a description

Normally I'd agree with you but in Rosie O'Donnell's case that's the most flattering set of adjectives I can think of.

Read Rafael Nadal as Ralph Nader. Time for bed.

I'd have had a better shot at getting Nader if he WAS the answer.

It always makes me sad that RA is remembered more as Mr. Bean than as Blackadder.

Johnny English.

Level 59

That guy from Not the Nine O'clock news.
+3
Level 82
Jun 26, 2018
I think he's remembered as Blackadder, but just better known for Mr. Bean. He doesn't speak, so an audience anywhere can be easily entertained, and therefore it's seen more widely. I love Blackadder, but it's not as accessible for most people as Mr. Bean.

Saw the word drummer in the clue and automatically skipped it. I never know specific musicians in these quizzes. Then I saw the answer, reread the clue, and now I'm so ashamed. I was a fan when they first invaded the US and I missed that one???
