Nice quiz. I don't know if it's named after a person but a Pyrrhic Substitution is a thing as well.

A few comments: (1) I believe Miranda warning should be accepted; (2) for Rube Goldberg, how about contraption or device; and (3) George Foreman grill is not a generalized thing, but a commercial product that we're effectively advertising.

Agreed about Miranda warning being accepted as an alternate answer. In law, it is just as common as Miranda rights.

Was going to request Marshall Law.

Then remembered it was named the U.S. Centric version of the quiz.

Then I remembered it's Martial Law.
