It depresses me that more people haven't heard of "To think that I saw it on Mulberry Street." That was one of my favorite books!

maybe you should talk to somebody about that

Remember when the leader of the Mushroom Kingdom was "Princess Toadstool?" I was trying like hell to figure out how the heck a toadstool was a tree.

Also isn't it "balsa" tree and not "balsam"? (apparently both exist)
Level 74
Jun 3, 2015
That's what I thought. Balsam is a product of various trees, but not a tree itself. There's a Himalayan Balsam, but that's not a tree.

I'm ashamed that I tried to put "Sesame Street" in there...
Level 59
Jul 4, 2015
I'm not ashamed I tried that. After all, many of these trees (or their names) are so rare, who could've known, maybe even sesame trees exist.

Fun quiz even though I missed mulberry and rubber.
Level 73
Jun 7, 2015
That was good. Spaced on a few that I should have gotten and flat out couldn't figure out the ______ Golightly. Knew it started w/ H but also knew there isn't a Heidi Tree out there anywhere.
Level 75

Did anyone else try "Chewing Pine," or am I the only Leo Kottke fan here?
Level 72
Jul 16, 2016
I tried "tobacco" first, even though I knew tobacco was a small shrubby plant.
Level 58
Jul 4, 2015
I'd never got the Ohio State one, even if I'd looked it up. I would have thought, "No... not that, whatever it is, that's not a tree". It's a tree?
Level 78
Jul 4, 2015
Not sure what you were seeing when you looked it up, but it is definitely a tree with nuts that look like chestnuts. Don't eat the nuts, though, unless you're a deer. They are poisonous to humans.
Level 79
May 24, 2016
Note that this IS a local confection, also called buckeyes - due to their resemblance to the nuts. Those, you can definitely eat - yum!

Wasn't the Spruce Goose the world's largest wooden airplane?
Level 70
Jun 9, 2016
I recommend changing this to aircraft with the widest wingspan. "Largest aircraft" has no single definition. The Spruce Goose is definitely not the largest by length, weight, or lift capacity.
Level 25

I'm amazed only 21% got mulberry street, it was one of my favorite books.

This really needs a question about the European and Asian varieties of cypress.
