The only other possible response was Bigfoot, but as long as you have the slightest clue where the Daily Mail is at, this is unmissable.
He first stated Tomlin, and then Alex restated that there were two of them, and I think that when Asim then said Lily Tomlin that Alex was expecting to hear Jane Fonda and just negged him. It's only speculation, though.
Alex should not have prompted him when "both women, please" was in the clue - a pause is all right, but not the prompting.
Given how quick it went from "both women, please" to "wrong" I think TPTB agreed.
I'm okay with either, though. We accept BMS as a nudge, but in this case 'BMS' would sound pretty stupid.
e.g., "Lily Tomlin." "Be more specific."
Anyone who frequents this board and did not get Manzanar...take me off ignore.
