NAME WP

This one should have been a no brainer but THIS no brainer was not up to the task. After 12 extra moves for bad guesses, I bailed, spooking the dog and pissing off my wife with my colorful language and highly animated gestures.

my first one took me far too long to get the name; but it was a fun puzzle and most enjoyable.
I like it when there is no direct link to google (the 18Jan for example puzzle would have been a breeze if you just turned to the wiki page for that date, instead of trying to find hurricane KYRILL -- who knew?)

Hey Don, were you separated from my husband at birth?

I'm holding my breath. I've never been in this position with so many players. I'm usually happy to hit my average of 10 letters per puzzle. Today I think I answered 2 of the puzzles using no letters (and no Google... I confess, I Google), so the 24 total is only slightly below my average.

I really enjoy these - but one I had more moves than I should of simply because I purposely block it from my mind when I hear it - fingernails on a chalkboard!

I really enjoy these mystery name WPs. I was doing great on this one, till I assumed a word, with no letters to support that assumption. Well, ya know what they say. I think I got 3 guessing maybe 2 letters each, and then the other two took too many letters.

But please, keep them coming!

Nelly,,,,,I don't think so. I guess I'm just another dumb, stereotype Irishman.

That must explain it Don, he does have Irish ancestors. S'pose it goes with the short temper!

No - it was spongebob - I knew what it was when I saw the clue - but I'm still horrified that they actually turned it into a movie.

What a world, what a world.

I tried one with no letters, too, Foogs. Turns out the difference between "also known as" and "best known as" is also the difference between sixth place and 13th!

That's the one that got me - I thought it was "well known as". The scoring didn't agree with me!

Don't blame me. I voted for "Just Known As".
