Quiz Description

Once upon a time, when people wanted to make sure the world knew they had a problem with, or funny story about, one of the day's questions, they started a "placeholder" thread. That tradition has gone the way of the dodo, but in honor of the practice I've put together a set of questions regarding other famous placeholders, stand-ins, and substitutions across the LL canon.

TL;DR Version - this was one of my 1DS proposals that I don't plan to resubmit, so you get it here.
