Hidden Insults:
Name the famous person, given a somewhat-insulting word hidden in their name. For instance, VIEW can be found in "SteVIE Wonder."

The hidden word always spans a space in the original name, but there are no extra letters added or removed. You'll get 10, 7, 4, 3, 2, or 1 points depending on how many hints you've revealed. There may be more than one famous person with the hidden insult, but I've tried to pick the most famous one in each case. The first clue is always the (main) profession of the person.

How to Play.
Simply type your guess in the box. Spaces and capitalization don't count, but spelling does! You can try as much as you want without penalty. You can also switch back-and-forth between puzzles without penalty (assuming that the new Google Gadgets User Preference code holds up).

Answers / Solutions: Answers are usually (and will be) posted in the comments section. Full answers will be posted on the solve puzzles page.
