Well done, Prof. P. It's been awhile since I've read OOTS, but I remember the character.

IQs:

Were you Harriet Tubman's landlord for awhile?
Did a character based on you cite the work of Bishop Ussher in a play?
Did your partner mispronounce the name of a notorious French writer?

Vercingetorix was the Gaulish commander that Julius Caesar fought in what is now France. Out of all my IQs to get wrong, naturally I screwed up the one I teased Knowed Out about not knowing. Some form of Gaudere's Law, I'd say.

[I notice in the news that Franky Zapata appeared on a flying board over the crowds in Paris on Bastille Day, and plans to fly across the English Channel on July 25th, 110 years to the day after the first airplane flight across the Channel. Expect to see him in an IQ on the Z round.]

Yes, thanks, Prof. P., "X" middle names are fair play in this round if the person always used the initial, like Bushman did.

X.

2. female
3. first name starts with X
4. created after 1899
5. created in part by an American or Americans
6. created after 1959
