^ Same here. Also, I never heard of a well-to-do farmer being called a yeoman. I've only heard of a Yeoman as a navy seaman being tasked with signaling.

Guinea pig? A type of pig? Hmm, I don't think so.

Not as great as the previous two, and it seems Kestrana isn't around to improve it any more - pity.

Some of the clues seemed a little lazy (e.g. 'Where fish and reefs are') and/or too easy (e.g. 'African desert').

for most of my lifetime, australia was considered a continent. it has only been in the last 20 years or so, maybe less, that "oceania" has come to mean the continent that used to be referred to as australia and the surrounding island nations.

No, before Oceania, it was Australasia.

There is not, and there has never been since the middle ages, an universally accepted definition of continent. Different models are taught differently at different places of the world (the main divergences being whether America is a continent or two, whether Europe and Asia should be merged in one Eurasia, and whether Australia or Oceania should be considered)

I don't know how many times it will get for Americans to understand there's a whole continent outside of Australia in the "continent" they call Australia

The 'continent' was Australasia, not Australia. It's now Oceania.

Bad clue. Australia isn't a continent. Oceania is Australia's continent.
