Didn't know Paul Revere was a silversmith but there are only so many professions with the word silver in them so it wasn't too hard to guess.

and how is Silver Bells the most-missed answer when this goes up the same day as the Christmas songs quiz?

@Kal, RE Silverbells being the (then) least guessed, I'm a Brit and I had never heard if it. I just googled the song and the version I listened to I don't remeber ever having heard before. It may well be a song that is very well known in the US. but that didn't make it across the pond. That would explain the low score a little.

Fair enough. Though in my travels one of the surprising discoveries I've made is how American Christmas songs and decorations get used all over the place... for instance in Palestine, Bahrain, and the Philippines.

In my travels I have noticed the opposite, i.e. in most of Europe, Australia, Malaysia, Bali, Singapore, Thailand, New Zealand, Morocco and the Isle of Man

Never ever heard of it.

after reading algernon i realise it is a song (thought maybe decoration, or the name of a period, or what a town is called during xmas..

and several song obviously did make it across the pond. Im dreaming of a white xmas and jinggle beIls, and the horrible songs of wham and mariah carrey...

Wham was British, so no blaming the US for that.

Never heard of silver bells. A Christmas decoration in your part of the world perhaps.

I'm sure these songs have been played in Thailand as well as the UK before.

Silver Bells charted in the top 40 in the UK in 2009, peaking at #27. But once again, Algernon assumes that any answer he doesn't know the answer to is unfair and it must be that it was impossible for him to know.

On the other hand, you could accept that it is hardly known in the UK, and that Algernon has a point. Have you any idea how few sales get you to number 29 in the UK charts?

If that's the picture I'm thinking of, it makes Revere look like a ringer for...Bob Hope. Had a pic like that in my high school history textbook.

And does "Harambe" have the word "Silver" in it? Then I guess it is not the right answer for a quiz where every answer has "silver" in it.

Besides the fact that every answer contains the word silver, Harambe was the name of a Gorilla. By that logic every male Gorillas name ever would have to be accepted.

I had no idea there was such a lively, ongoing debate about whether the Lone Ranger was saying hi-HO or hi-YO. In fact, I never thought of hi-yo as even being a possibility!

Since Mercury was capitalized, I thought you were referring to the planet. I wouldn't have gotten it anyway though!

Please don't capitalize mercury. It's not a proper noun in this usage, as other people have pointed out. I'd have got quicksilver as quick as quicksilver if you'd got your orthography right
