In regards to demonyms- I live in a small town in the Canadian Rockies, Canmore. That makes me a proud Canmoron!

Any chance you guys could post the artists and track names for those amazing foreign "cover" songs (for lack of a better word)? Those were awesome!

Hi guys, loved listening to this week's podcast on my way back to Nottingham UK from London. I loved the demonym info, but was I've never heard people from Newcastle being called whatever you called them.

In the UK people from Newcastle are famously called 'Geordies' and people from Birmingham are called 'Brummies'.

Another one you might like is people from the county or Yorkshire are called 'Tykes'.

Lovely the fabulous facts guys.

Love the show, and especially enjoyed the demonyms. I think I have one of the best demonyms out there. I live in the small town of Chemainus, on southern Vancouver Island. A resident of Chemainus is known as a Chemainiac. Always felt it suited me well.

Greetings from Norway

I usually listen to GJB when I go for walks with my dog. Couple of pictures from a trip this summer.

Catching up on old episodes and caught the demonyms quiz. Unfortunately Edinburgh does not rhyme with Pittsburgh, but is pronounced "Edin-burrow" so the joke is kind of lost. A small but distracting error.

I finally finished Episode 75 and was surprised and delighted to hear my name (Jonathan of Fargo, ND) referenced by Karen! I am the registered patent agent from Fargo that Karen referenced! I didn't know she used my stuff to create a quiz! This is awesome!

Here are a couple of fun patents for you to look up:

Go to Google/patents and search for these patents.

Patent 5,901,666 Pet Display Vest
Patent 5,255,452 Anti-Gravity Illusion (inventor: Michael Jackson)
Patent 6,293,874 User-operated amusement apparatus for kicking the user's buttocks

There are many, many more.

Thanks, GJB!
