This is probably one of the most controversial quizzes I've seen on this site... the radio star getting "killed" in a PotUS song is as much a crime as someone stealing the spotlight!

OBJECTION!! It was The Buggles, and was the first video ever played on MTV. You know, back when they played music and not pregnant teenagers.

I'd forgotten that the Buggles performed the original version; the PotUSoA version is just more mainstream. My bad.

I had no idea the Presidents covered this song. I'm gonna have to track that down and check it out. @NekroNeko and anyone else who's not familiar with the group, they had a few hits in the mid-90's such as "Peaches" and "Lump" (which Weird Al parodied as "Gump"), and they also did "Cleveland Rocks" which was used as the theme song to the Drew Carey show for awhile.

Apollo should also be accepted for the killing of Achilles. Many myths say that he was killed by Apollo who disguised himself as Paris. Others say that Apollo guided the arrow that Paris shot to hit Achilles' weakness. Either way, Apollo was critical in the death of Achilles by most accounts.

David killing Goliath is taking someone's life so is definitely a crime

ddddan has a point. They were fighting a war, and David took up the task of fighting the "giant". This was no different than killing a man in battle during a war.

I did try just Gretel after "Hansel and Gretel" didn't work, but I wonder if changing it so that any answer that contains "Gretel" would be a good idea.

"Wanted for Crimes Real and Fictional"... Yet the Hamilton question is the only real crime on here? I can envision a "Fictional Crimes" quiz that wouldn't take too long to make.

I conjecture that @QM only put that one on there so that the quiz could accurately be labelled in a way that would avoid complaints from people who think that the Bible is entirely and literally true (when it isn't). There was no need in my opinion, but it's @QM's quiz, so I'm not going to complain.

Mrs. O'Leary's cow did not cause the Chicago fire. The press made it up and destroyed this woman's life. it was an early example of fake news.

Fake news was a term coined to describe the "news" stories wholly fabricated by Russian intelligence agents and trolls and then spread around on social media to try and confuse people into thinking that Hillary Clinton was as much a criminal as her opponent, or to convince minority voters to not vote, and so on and so forth.

Later, because Trump is pathologically insecure and can't handle the idea that he might not be responsible for his own election win, he started calling honest and fair media coverage of him "fake news" for two reasons. 1. to confuse his base into thinking that fake news meant biased, dishonest, partisan or misleading news stories, when that's not at all what the term meant, in order to distract people away from the real meaning and the conspiracy behind it that was the Russians conspiring to undermine American democracy, and 2. to confuse his base into thinking that the honest media could not be trusted.
A poorly fact-checked news story isn't the same.

Phil: it hasn't. Not in the sense that was meant by the term as originally intended. Biased, partisan, misleading, propagandistic, or misleading news? Yeah. That's been going on for a long time. But that's not what everyone was talking about in 2016 when Trump started calling CNN fake news to confuse and misdirect you.

At first, I could only think of Oliver Twist for the porridge clue. Also, I don’t think that Pandora committed a crime in any sense. What she did was not a good idea, but no laws were broken. Adam and Eve are stretching it, but at least God had just told them not to eat it. I could see David vs. Goliath’s Surviving Family Members playing out in an episode of Law & Order: BC, with David’s additional charge being war crimes.

Only Adam and Eve aren't wanted any more, they got caught, indicted, questioned, convicted, and punished! Case closed.
