I know that Mahaloth has already apologized, but I misread the question in the say way - I just thought that Juan was probably the most common name in Spanish speaking countries, and there are a lot of them.

More thought would have led me to Mohammad - good thing I wasn't thinking very much.

And I second the note about Flipper - the additional points only move me up one slot though. Quick mental addition makes it look like that was the only category that was missing one or more answers (total answers look to be the same for the others).

W00T! Highest placement yet for me.

I was the only one who said plastic surgeon for #2. Is it even a term any more?

Flipper was already added into the scores. The list of answers is just cut and paste, and I must have left out poor Flipper.

The two different spellings of Mohammed was just me, combining the spelling in the outcome so they would match.

I also thought that "surgeon" and "plastic surgeon" were two different specialties, so I separated them.

I suspected as much. No worries, we have faith in your scoring skills!

Labtrash, the mods created this thread in the Game Room for notifications.

You can send a submission if you'd like. I might or might not use all or part of it. I've been trying to pick questions that have very simple one or two word answers.
