Is that actually a thing? Never heard of it. Where does it come from? When all the lights go out it turms black, what does the brown refer to?

The clue "to suck up" is a bit too ambiguous for my taste. If I had gone down the road of ingratiating oneself to a superior and not toward vacuums and straws, I surely would have gotten it.

Nah, that'd put him on guard. Merely attempting to humorously use another version of suck up to add to the ambiguity.

No. Apart from white collar being two words, Aristocrats don't work for a living - well not many of them.

A great quiz, thank you, however, I was perturbed that "white horses" was not accepted for "Wave with a crest of foam".

I didn't think it would be wrong. "Whitewater" is acceptable as far as I'm concerned, so would match the one word requirement.

Whitewater is too rough to have distinct waves on which one can make out a crest. Come on.

Could Evergreen have a clearer clue? There are many types of evergreen, of which conifer is one type...so I was thinking of species rather than a broader definition.
