You'd have to be very quick to get all these in that time frame! Wasn't aware of some of these sayings. Good quiz.

Thank you. I try to mix well-known pairs with less well-known ones, but I am constantly surprised by some of the ones that people miss. Perhaps that has something to do there not being enough time. I will consider raising the time limit on future quizzes in this series. I am usually accused of allowing TOO much time, so your feedback is refreshing.

Update: Not sure how this quiz got set to 2 minutes, as all the rest in this series are set to 4, and I would have copied this one from the previous quiz in the series.

In any case, I have fixed this one so it now allows 4 minutes.

Thanks very much for letting me know!
