Can we use "subway" instead of "underground railroad?" My mind immediately went to freeing slaves from the deep south in America.

Unfortunately a "subway" in many (esp. British & formerly British) parts of the world is a pedestrian tunnel underneath a road or tracks.

I'll third this sentiment, although I eventually got the right answer. At the very least, let's make "Railroad" lowercase.

ya underground railroad is probably not the best term... Perhaps "underground transit system" or something like that would make it easier to tell what you are talking about.

Love the quiz. But perhaps the "underground Railroad" clue could have been "London underground"? Or even just railroad, underground?

Underground railroad is fine as clue. Its a railroad that goes underground, what's the problem. (even if Brits would call it a railway)

The problem is that in America, "Underground Railroad" is a proper name refering to a system of safehouses for rescuing escaping slaves. Nobody would ever use the phrase in connection with subways. (I just tried Googling it. The top hundred hits were all in this context; not one of them had to do with subways.) Changing the clue to "Underground Railway" would be a perfect fix for the problem.

Har har. Think about this. Women have one more rib than men do. Hmmm... could this mean something?

level 66
Feb 18, 2016
Umm... no they don't. that is a myth, based on the story of adam and eve. go ahead and count your ribs, you most likely have the same number as any female that you compare with. Some people do have one more or less rib, but this happens to both men and woman and it has nothing to do with the creation story

I knew "bite, frothing, vaccine," but I couldn't get tetanus out of my brain. As for the subway, try "underground railWAY" to distinguish it from the slaves' way to the north.

Two suggestions: Replace “too legit” with “can’t touch this” and make it King Richard I. I was stuck on it being famous exclamations, so I was working on how King Richard III’s “a horse” could possibly line up with Dorothy’s “lions, tigers, or bears.”
