But I've never heard the Sesame Street character referred to as "Elmu" or "Elmi." It's a chain game which means that the next answer starts with the last letter of the previous answer. So although Utah and Iowa are states with four letters, those answers would not work given the previous answer.

First, please accept Utah for the state one. Second please accept nice for kind because both are four digits and the same meaning. Great quiz, I wish I would have thought of this!

This is "word chain" game, not a 4-letter word quiz, so the first letter of each word must be the last letter of the previous one. Since the previous word ends with O, only Ohio is accepted. Utah and Iowa are 4-letter but do not start with O, so I will NOT include these, never.

Would you PLEASE read the instructions at the beginning of the quizzes and STOP with the asinine suggestions (such as asking to include an obviously inappropriate clue because it has the same number of letters as the proffered clue)

If I were "British" (always code for the England section of the Isles) and tube were an American term, here is where I would ache and cry like a confused Alzheimer's widow aged 97. Being here to accept the world as diverse, I wouldn't complain, even if I didn't know the answer.
