True, I have heard it used by some French and Belgians & French speaking Canadian, but not by a native (UK, USA, New-Zeland, Oz etc.) Interestingly the 'Jack Of All Trades' the quote Jack of All Trades master of none. I always understood it as 'Jack Of All Trades, master of none, more use than master of one'...
I've actually seen that one
And I could care less is very common as well, come on people, how hard is it!?
That said, I didn't recognize about 90% of them, but the ones I did recognize I recognized correctly (except the thing/think)
Emperor leaves behind rotten pelt found by Spanish river dog (9)
HINT: Not every culture would consider this food.
PEKINGESE = Dog*KING = Emperor
ahead of = leaves behindPE = Pelt - lt (rotten = deletion indicator)
ES = Spanish (i.e. language)
E = River E (in Scotland)
*Dog meat is considered a food[^] in some countries, thus still follows the theme of food named after a location. The Pekingese dog breed[^] is named after Peking(Beijing) which is the capital of China (which also happens to consume the most dog meat of all the countries).
McDonald's? It doesn't entirely fit the clue but it has 9 letters and certainly fits the hint, added to which it's pretty rotten, it may well contain leaves, it's just about good enough for a dog and the bread has probably been soaked in a Spanish river and you could probably pelt someone with it ... Emperor sounds more like Burger King, though, and that hasn't got 9 letters, so I'm stuck!
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
English: what are you doing?
American: getting rid of "u".
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
