Hi Quizzy, could you please allow the non-American spelling of lightening? I.e. with an e.

There is no non-American spelling of Lightning. We spell it like that in Britain too.

Never heard of 'chutes and ladders', only snakes. Please accept snakes.

So according to you the answer is chutes and snakes?? accepting snakes as an answer makes no sense at all..

Metes and bounds is a commonly-used expression regarding land measurement, and it is the right size to fit the blank as well.

Level 82
Feb 9, 2015
Metes and bounds is far more common and technical than leaps and bounds. It should count.

I agree that it should be allowed. However as an civil engineer and surveyor I could be prejudiced,

Lamb and mint sauce in the UK, but close enough to have guessed it right.

I'd never serve lamb w/mint jelly...but then again, I'd never overcook lamb to the grey stringy mess that it's often served as (w/mint jelly).

Great quiz, but could you accept "hair and nails." Nails has two meanings, and this would also work.

is it a common expression though? otherwise so many things would fit, like fingers and nails..

I did too, although I tried "qs" and "q's" first before I realized that the fact that pEAS being spelled out didn't fit with where my little brain was going. It would have been a good one to have on this quiz though!

he means fish and fries for all you 'mericans out there

Not US "chips", UK chips that would be called fries in US (though not in the fish and chip places I know are there) They should be thicker and chunkier than fries to be good and proper chips though.

They are then served with fish dipped in batter and deep fried.

That is how fish go with chips, salted of course. Vinegar, Mushy peas and sauce optional.

I got Chutes and ... as a guess. Something about it sounds like a game. But if you think about it, it's possible to imagine "Chutes and ..." as an alternative version of the board game for British people, but what do Americans think when they hear that we call it "Snakes and ...."? The answer to your question is, yes, we draw various snakes on the board which you slide down.

really? I seriously never have been more surprised ( no offence). I don't think there are many pairs that are more, I dont know, taguht/wellknown/gong together. Cant really describe it butmit is one that is allways said in the same breath. Unlike black, that can be used in many ways. But with flora the fauna is allways there ( even if it is not mentioned).

sorry for the bad explanation :D

never heard of the lamb peas and beans ones. Must be a regional thing. But peanutbutter and jelly and tea and crumpets is regional too I guess, but I did guess those. But they are more talked about/mentioned in popculture I guess.
