As a sewing professional and word geek, I'll just mention that "sempster" is a valid (and older) alternate spelling. Also the not-very-p.c. "sempstress", but that doesn't fit this quiz.

Did you hear about the man who fell into the upholstery machine? Don't worry, he's fully recovered.

It's really surprising, upsetting and disturbing that I neither knew what a seamster is nor had heard the word before, and that so few people got "roadster", "imposter" and "headmaster" right...

All monostaries are for religious seclusion, it's right there in the name 'mono'.

It is spelt monastery not monostery, so FractalDoom's comment makes no sense.

The 'mon' part comes from monos which is Greek for alone, so the comment actually makes sense.

Surely you've heard of a seamstress? And you can probably figure out how the male counterpart would be named (actor-actress, mister-mistress, adulterer-adulteress). I'd never heard the term before either, but that's how I figured it out.

Red Leicester is also a type of cheese. Better, IMO, than either Muenster or Munster (2 different cheeses), especially if aged properly

And there is Beemster, after Edam and Gouda the biggest dutch cheesename (though might be close to maaslander depending on region)

Muenster is apparently a semi-soft cheese while Munster, a different cheese is soft. Beemster is also semi-soft (look on their official website, the English wikipedia page has incorrectly called it a hard cheese)

I would say a cheese is soft when you can smear it and semi-soft when you can poke your finger in/through it without it crumbling.

A truck driver called a teamster? I have never heard that before. Suppose it must have come from the old days when a man who drove the animal-drawn wagon was called a teamster.

So I tried reupholster time and time and time again. Could not figure out why it wouldn't work. I guess something needs to be upholstered before it can be reupholstered. Doesn't help that I'm sitting on a couch that needs to reupholstered
