Tough quiz! I love analogies. Got 15/20, should have gotten 17. Couldn't spell Hieroglyphics for some reason and typed Sparta for Leonidas because I didn't read the question correctly.

Thanks for playing! That you even know what cuneiform is and that Leonidas was a Spartan diarch is worthy of two honourary points right there!

If you relate General Patton to President Roosevelt, you must relate Field Marshal Montgomery to King George VI (his supreme commander), really.

Not so sure about your Robin, Maurice and Barry link. They are all brothers (Brothers Gibb) so I was trying to think of a band with 3 brothers, two of which were John and George - couldn't do it. This might have been better if another siblings band had been used instead of the Beatles.

Goiters affect the thyroid. The eye is an organ; the thyroid is an organ. The neck is not an organ.

I typed thyroid, but wasn't clever enough to get neck. But I spelled "corgette" instead of "courgette," too. And I misinterpreted the Leonidas question...but my failings all seemed reasonable when the truth was revealed.

I agree with Susie222, it should be thyroid, not neck.
