consider private investigator for gumshoe and nude for starkers

Added nude. Private Investigator is not a single word.

You would never say, "Have you got some quid?". We do say, "Have you got a quid?" Or, "It cost me ten quid".

What about "money" for "pound?"
+1
level 75
Aug 29, 2015
You can't say, "have you got some quid?" and mean currency? In the same way an American might say, "I spent a few bucks on bibimbap in Seoul this morning"... meaning... a small amount of money... even though one buck is usually understood as one US dollar.

Yes, you can't say "have you got some quid?". I'm not sure "have you got some bucks?" sounds right either, does it? But you can say "I spent a few quid on bibimbap in Seoul this morning".

Quite right 'Metope', some punkers don't realise that every alternate answer has to be entered in by the quiz maker when building the quiz. Sometimes the alternatives can be 10 or 20 different entries, and then someone else will comment 'How about so/and/so for this question!

I'm not sure "body part" is really an accurate description for mustache. I wish I could think of something else with which to replace it (one that doesn't give it away), but I think that's the main reason the % guessed correct is so low on that one. Arms, legs, organs, muscles - those are all integral to the function of the body. A pile of hair and toenail clippings would never be called a pile of "body parts".
+2
level 75
Apr 2, 2015
Agree - while you can't deny that hair is part of the body, it sounds weird (in American English, at least) to call a mustache, or any other human hair, a "body part."

I think banker should be accepted for accountant.

All I could think of was quality control. They really tighten production, whereas an accountant just keeps track of money no matter how poorly spent or erratic the record keeping is.

i never knew that's what 'giving up the ghost' meant
+1
level 29
Dec 12, 2012
Me neither, I always thought it was a term that meant to give up trying something because you know it's not going to work. I don't think I've ever heard it used in a context where it would mean to die.
+1
level 50
Jul 18, 2014
Well, take 'ghost' to mean, say, 'soul'. When you die, most cultures believe that it leaves your body. So, you're giving up the ghost.

Fresher for freshman?

level 59
Jan 25, 2015
Also "First Year" or "1st year". The answer given is kind of slang itself.

level 75
Apr 2, 2015
Freshman is the standard term in the US; "first year" is unheard of, or yearly so.
+1
level 38
Jan 21, 2019
In the USA (at least in the North) a "first year student" is generally referred to as a student in his/her first year of law school. A freshman is a first year college or high school student.

Kept typing in "pound" but for some reason it wasn't working. Also "the clap" means chlamydia in the UK.

You have to add 1 before pound... Which is odd as it's technically not 'one word' for the answer.

The first thing that came to mind for "the clink", was CenturyLink Field (home of the Seahawks) considering that it goes by the same name in Seattle. Probably too specific to one city, but maybe consider adding it as an acceptable answer.
