I agree that it is a poor clue. "Texas Tech" would have been a better one.

Definitely. Plenty in Lubbock more than cotton, and plenty of cotton elsewhere in Texas.

Lakewood has got to be the most boring name for a suburb ever.

Several suburban neighborhoods outside of Baton Rouge, La incorporated in 2005 and named the new town Central City. Now that is one of the most boring names ever. It sounds like a soap opera or comic book town.

Got all of them surprisingly, considering I don't even live in a city, let alone a town! I'm stuck out here in the country, out in Illinois.

So you live in a village? I believe that's the only thing smaller than a town in Illinois.

Denver has way too many suburbs that begin with the letter L. We eventually just started calling all of them "one of the L towns".
