Nomination for you my friend. This one was super fun, the answers aren’t obvious but when you get them it’s pretty cool. Only one I didn’t get was Limpopo river, I knew it was something river but I hadn’t heard of that one

Thanks! The main reason I know of that river is Rudyard Kipling's story of how the elephant got its trunk, which talks about "the great grey-green greasy Limpopo River." I loved that as a kid.

Great quiz! I tried to look at the clues for as short time as possible, so I'm not distracted by the typography. Saying them out loud worked like a charm, even for the river I didn't know. I'll be happy to see more of this series. :)

You could have given me also a random "Limpopo River" as clue. Wouldn't make it easier! :-D

Jan 13, 2020
Damn that was hard. Especially when the words are divided so differently from how they are in the clue (Passive Echo Shin), that one I just couldn't get. Especially when an accent where E->I and I->E is not quite the norm. Also places I hardly ever hear about like the Limp Pope Or Ever and Fluoride Up And Hand Doll took a while to decipher. Nice quiz though!

I was able to get 'Fluoride Up And Hand Doll' because 'Fluoride U' only corresponded to one place I knew, so I focused on 'p And Hand Doll'.

Thanks for making this. Great quiz. Do you know the origin of "mondegreen"? I can't remember the name of the song but the line "they laid him on the green" was misinterpreted as "Lady Mondegreen".
+2
Level 80
Jan 22, 2020
Yes! I had no idea about that until I made the quiz. From Wikipedia: American writer Sylvia Wright coined the term in 1954, writing that as a girl, when her mother read to her from Percy's Reliques, she had misheard the lyric "And hae layd him on the green" in the fourth line of the Scottish ballad "The Bonny Earl of Murray," as "And Lady Mondegreen".

I had never bragged about my 100%-score quizzes, but this time I have to do it since I would consider English my third language only and I have never lived in an English-speaking country. Well, it seems that having to speak English with people from all around the world, with plenty of different nationalities and accents, might help to complete this quiz. And I didn't even know that Florida Panhandle existed... :)
