Thanks to everyone for playing. I was happy to get 34 players given that I decided to throw it together at the last minute without scheduling it early and posting it on a Tuesday evening.

On a personal note, this TD has the fewest drops of any I've hosted so far, which was my goal. This has been a function of me incentivizing not dropping with a bonus and trying to have at least one answer anybody should know per question. Please let me know how you feel about this - if I've made it too easy, or if I've struck a good balance.

1. "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" is famous for being a grammatically correct sentence. Identify one of these other phrases or terms that has a repeated word.

Naturally, I got that right - a rare event for me on a question that played pretty hard. Naturally, I mixed up Bryant and Bryan here and that cost me a wrong answer.
