Exactly one of the seven tiles on the bottom will go in each of the seven curved regions formed by the overlapping circles. Two additional tiles have been placed for you - but the question is which tiles go where and why?

  • $\begingroup$ I think I've got ROT13{HF cerfvqragf (Gehzc, Bonzn, Zbaebr, Ebbfriryg, Erntna)} and ROT13{fhowrpgf bs Jneuby neg (Zbaebr, Ryivf, pnaf, Jneuby)}, but not sure about the third category or the last member of the second one. The second category would also fit with the first half of the title. $\endgroup$ Aug 13, 2022 at 9:59

Here's how you can resolve this Venn diagram:

The three ellipses represent:

Top left: Surnames of US Presidents

(James) Monroe, (Barack) Obama, (Ronald) Reagan, (Theodore/Franklin) Roosevelt, (Donald) Trump

Top right: Andy Warhol artwork subjects

Campbell's Soup Cans
Campbell's Soup Cans

Elvis Presley
Elvis 1 & 2

Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe

Teddy Roosevelt
Teddy Roosevelt 386

Andy Warhol himself!
Warhol self-portrait

Bottom: Shot in failed assassination attempts

Pope John Paul II, Ronald Reagan, Theodore Roosevelt, Andy Warhol

The name appearing in all 3 categories is thus 'Roosevelt' - what a colourful life!

Re the title:

Andy Warhol once said that one day everybody would be 'famous for fifteen minutes', and 'shot' suggests gunshots.
