Nice. It is Montgomery, with two rather than three "m"s.

Tough quiz! I love analogies. Got 15/20, should have gotten 17. Couldn't spell Hieroglyphics for some reason and typed Sparta for Leonidas because I didn't read the question correctly.

Thanks for playing! That you even know what cuneiform is and that Leonidas was a Spartan diarch is worthy of two honourary points right there!

Strange since I did the same. I tried Hierogliphics before finding the typo and also went to Greece and Sparta before Persia.

Could you please add marrow and maybe squash also for zucchini? Just couldn't think of courgette. Thanks.

If you relate General Patton to President Roosevelt, you must relate Field Marshal Montgomery to King George VI (his supreme commander), really.

Not so sure about your Robin, Maurice and Barry link. They are all brothers (Brothers Gibb) so I was trying to think of a band with 3 brothers, two of which were John and George - couldn't do it. This might have been better if another siblings band had been used instead of the Beatles.
Level 55

Not to mention, what about poor Ringo?

Goiters affect the thyroid. The eye is an organ; the thyroid is an organ. The neck is not an organ.
Level 46
May 25, 2017
I typed thyroid, but wasn't clever enough to get neck. But I spelled "corgette" instead of "courgette," too. And I misinterpreted the Leonidas question...but my failings all seemed reasonable when the truth was revealed.
Level 66
Dec 13, 2018
I agree with Susie222, it should be thyroid, not neck.
Level 57
Feb 9, 2022
Robert de Niro also played Frankenstein's monster
Level 53
Feb 9, 2022
Please allow "close" spellings of hieroglyphics. Also, would suggest that Spielberg is also to dinosaurs and aliens in the same vein as Melville.

Peter Boyle? Young Frankenstein, but still a Frankenstein's monster

14/20. Fun quiz, thanks.
