3K: I'd have gone with Hakuna Mutata & been out of here

And yes, I completely ignore "chant before" in clue & know "simba" is lion in Zulu & isn't Hakuna Mutata. And no, I've never seen show.

7K: WBUR broadcast a TED Talk segment where the talker tells how the co founders were arguing about what name to give their co for say 6 months & hadn't even built their web site yet. Even though bid date for investors was a minute away. He talked as though you couldn't both argue & build. He thought they were crazy at the time. Now he doesn't because they chose Warby Parker.

TED guy never bothered to tell, in that segment anyway, where name came from.

I *did* know the stuff they sold. Warby Parker was TED guy's punchline; everybody in audience was supposed to know it.

10K: Prolly Carson. 50/50

20K: ATA Vegas audience
