Didn't know this thread existed, so catching up on it! Same thing with me yesterday -- one clue had a typo, so I figured that was a subtle hint to it being the wrong answer. I was obviously over thinking, as in fact it turned out to be the correct one (said Mistfits when it meant Misfits). When I clicked on the corrections tab, it took me to another page where it wouldn't accept my login.

Great job ECK!
I should have known the one I got wrong, but overthought it.

I'm not a real doctor, but I may have told a girl that at a party once. I suspect the Funtrivia Oath is somewhere in the terms and conditions thing everyone just clicks on.

I'm speechless. Well, almost. I'm #3 so far and the third of three to get 10 correct this morning. Be still my heart!

Way to go Rete! However, unless you speak more languages than I'm aware of, you didn't get the Vietnamese language question, LOL! Or even the NATO aircraft code!!!

I clicked on em, then deliberated and changed it to co, costing both time and the question.

I'm currently riding high at number 2 in the ratings, but after a disastrous showing this morning, felt for sure I would be toppled, but looks like Nutmegger didn't fare so well either.

That's the highest I've ever been.

Still no hope of catching LizzyQ

How on earth am I supposed to know about some random comedy group in Canada? Answer is obviously that I don't. It was New Kids on the Block or something.

New Kids on the Block was a musical group. I feel the same way about questions that deal with entertainment from other parts of the world.

Before there was Kids in the Hall, there was CODCO! It's a little payback for expecting us to know which city the Murray River flows through.
