7K: I, not knowing the song, would figure it had been done by Dexy's Midnight Runners which the show was giving me as a pun/clue, & been out here.

Let's pretend I ATA'd instead. So I can keep playing here.

20K: Italian name implies NJ but could be meant to mislead. I know this hideously relies on stereotypes, but that's how "Real Housewives of Wherever" franchise works (the "Jersey Shore" series went to town on stereotypes). 50/50. To be sure its still there.

Since I've already used ATA, I'm hosed - the 50:50 won't help and none of my potential +1s would know either.

"Male Home Sapiens" is no more precise than "Men."
"Pronators" is less precise than "Runners."
"Craniums" is less precise than "Heads."

Since the collective noun for seagulls is "colony," that is the only possible answer here.

Estonut: I seriously doubt the Q writers really meant actual precision as a clue. The whole Q was just very punny.

I don't see a pun there at all.
