• One man every night only one? Trivial? or Metaphorically used? – Techidiot Mar 3 '17 at 13:28
• Mmm I don't wanna give it away too much so I won't say more than: in what I am referencing, just one man... but the title may require you to be from a certain country but it's not necessary for the other clues. – n_plum Mar 3 '17 at 13:34
• @n_palum If the clue is specific to one country, then should this question have the trivia tag? – MikeQ Mar 3 '17 at 18:44
• @MikeQ I added it, again still not familiar with every tag.. but it could be helpful for the title as I mentioned to techidot, but the rest do not require it. – n_plum Mar 3 '17 at 18:45
