Actually it isn't a stroller which is usually called a buggy over here. A pram is a baby carriage with 4 wheels and carries the baby lying down like a cot, a cot on wheels. Oh a cot is called a crib in USA, I nearly forgot. As said already 'pram' came from perambulator which is a very Victorian sort of word.

Pram or buggy are pretty much interchangeable these days for any contraption with wheels that you push babies around in, and get your fingers sheared off by if you’re not careful folding/unfolding it. My mum used to refer to the type you’re describing (and which she carted me and my sister around in) as a bassinette pram (don’t quote me on the spelling). Although anyone seen using one of those these days is almost definitely shoplifting frozen turkeys.

The first "s" in "Comic Sans" should be capitalized. Nobody prints in "Times roman" or "Courier new". Failing to capitalize the "s" makes it a somewhat deceptive clue for anyone who doesn't immediately recognize it as the name of a font.

It would be like using "Famous Miami dolphin" as a clue. With the "d" lower-case, instead of thinking of a famous football player, you try to think of an actual aquatic animal that was somehow famous in the Miami area, like Flipper maybe.

Comic sans is a typeface, not a font; comic sans 12pt bold, or Times New Roman 72pt standard, would be a font.

I've almost always heard it "to each their own."

Sep 27, 2017
Actually, it should be "to each his own" - Each is singular, therefore, the noun should be also.

But "each" is not necessarily a male. In fact, half of them are female.

@AnnikaKim - interesting case, but the grammar rules changed rather recently. Generally, singular they only just started being recognized by mainstream linguists around 2015, and not by a majority until around 2020. Prior to that, the majority of English linguists used the masculine third person pronoun when gender was non-specific, rather than what was more common in vernacular, which was listing both the masculine and feminine pronouns with a forward slash between them, for example "his/her."

Freddie Mercury's illness?

Really?

C'mon QM.

Is that really what he is remembered for?

Is there nothing else you could have used? I would suggest AMOS, ALAS, AIRS, AIMS, ALMS, ACES, ACTS, AGES, AGAS, APES, ARES, AXES.

Some might find the clue in bad taste. Imagine if you were Freddy Mercury's sister or nephew and played this quiz. Even keeping the answer as is, I think there are plenty of other options. I'm not personally offended by this just caught a little off guard.

I'm a huge Freddie Mercury fan, and while it's incredibly sad that he's no longer with us, I don't think the clue is offensive. Mercury is probably the most recognizable person who had AIDS, so if there is anyone acknowledged in a clue about AIDS, it should be him. Also, the fact that he had AIDS does not, in any way, diminish his musicianship and showmanship. He is, and always will be, primarily remembered for his life, not his death.

What do you look forward to the most?

Is it your birthday? Or maybe your favorite holiday? How about the day when you see Jesus? We are going to see Jesus very soon, and you better hope you're ready. Once you see Him, there will be no second chances for you. If you feel as if you aren't ready, don't be afraid. Pray to God for guidance, and read the Bible so you know how to be ready. Remember to always look forward to Jesus.

"Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect."
