Dear Quizmaster: not all of the clues made it 100% guaranteed that I would get the answer, so I'm going to be a typical JetPunk user and complain. After all, it's not as if these are quizzes, which are meant to be challenging...

Sawbones must also be an Australian thing. My wife is a surgeon here in the US and she's never heard that term before.
+2
Level 74
Sep 21, 2014
She's probably not old enough :) -- first recorded use of the term is from 1837. It's slang all over the English-speaking world but it's fairly antiquated. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=sawbones

I've heard the term all my life, too, but the last time I heard it was in a West Wing episode. Donna said to Quincy, "So, you're our new sawbones?" Quincy said, "No, sawbones are doctors. Lawyers are shysters." Donna looked at Josh and said, "I got him to say it."

Stop complaining about Macca's....the quiz does't say these are THE nicknames, just that they are among them. Australia/NZ it's very common, the Quizmaster has thrown it in as a challenge. Plus us non-Americans have to put up with 'mericanisms all the time on this site ;-)

People arent complaining.. they are just saying they never heardit. Complaining is saying quizmaster you got it wrong. Or this shouldnt be on the quiz it is the wrong answer etc (in different phrasing, im not good at complaining so cant make it sound authentic hsha)

Is it possible to accept Sylvester Stallone instead of Rocky Balboa?

Level 58
Sep 14, 2015
Yeah, people call him the Italian Stallion in real life as well.

Level 37
Nov 17, 2018
^ Agree. Stallone is/was referred to as the "Italian Stallion". It might have started because of "Rocky", but was transmuted to real life.

I got Macca's by guessing. But I think the Italian Stallion refers to Stallone not the character because of the last name.

Never heard of Macca's but heard of "Maccy Ds", here in England.

Can you accept Rafa Benitez for Rafa too?

My first thought for Boy Wonder was Jimmy Neutron but it turns out he was a Boy Genius instead

Level 95
Dec 18, 2017
Italian Stallion is Stallone's nickname. I think he wrote it into Rocky because he liked it for the character. I guess it works, but it really is broader than just the character.

Level 76
Apr 21, 2018
Sure, but the question is "Fictional character nicknamed 'The Italian Stallion,'" to which "Rocky Balboa" is the only correct answer.

Accept Jughashvili for Man of Steel?

Level 65

Except that, as with Stallone, Stalin is real and the clue indicates a fictional character.

Always thought psychologist = shrink as psychiatrist is essentially a legalized pusher. Or maybe I've studied the stuff in wrong schools/books...
+1
Level 37
Jan 31, 2019
A Psychiatrist is referred to as a 'legalized pusher" pusher because, as a Medical Doctor, he is authorized to prescribe medication; a Psychologist is not and is, therefore, not allowed to prescribe.

As a theater kid I was nervous even typing the M-word for the Scottish play. We did that play in our Shakespeare club in high school and my theatre teacher left the department under mysterious circumstances.

It's not a superstition to mess around with.
