Wouldn't have gotten this with 50 guesses. Nothing in the clue was of any help.
I might be able to get it in 50 guesses if I figured that the writer was a woman.

Re: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Comic Title Characters" + "Two Names" = only Calvin & Hobbes came to mind for me. So, instaget. Good point. What other comic strips even meet that criterion? Hi & Lois? Mutt and Jeff Arlo and Janis At the risk of going off topic, I'll stop now. (Also, that's all I could think of.) Kit & Carlyle, A...

Had it as soon as I read "theologian"
Expected somewhat more challenge, my precall was "Sally Forth".

I wasn't getting Regis out of that clue. Decided to cater to the LCD with a guess of Jerry Springer. :|

Ironically, people seem to do fairly well with the “dreaded” Opera category. Or at least that’s my perception.
Not ironic at all. "classic" opera is pretty much codefied with what one needs to know, but who can keep track of movies every year?

An '80s category? More, please!
A Contemporary Art FJ? Never again, please!
What was with Frank's bet in DJ? He had to bet it all to keep it from being a runaway.
Lots of trash for the taking in DJ. Yeoman, Shogun (how?), Decameron, ammonia (NH3 is chem 101), and shoulda got Dominican Republic.

Re: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't see FJ as a coin flip. The quote very strongly outlines Hoover's policy of non-intervention. It's the policy that lost him the election against FDR. It's the polar opposite of FDR's policy of extensive government help to end the Depression. If that quote had somehow come out of FDR's mouth...

I considered Ellis island for FJ, figured the Statue of Liberty was more of a landmark. Wondering how many missed because it seemed too obvious. :)
Fibber McGee & Molly were definitely a nod to us older viewers. :geek:

Kool-Aid aTS? Seriously? Also got the horseradish clue.

Couldn't think of anything for FJ. Finally guessed The Lone Ranger because of the William Tell Overture. :?

Couldn't puzzle out the Latin. Roosevelt pointed me to New York, and I tried to decide between the Hudson River & the Erie Canal.

Couldn't think of anything else but the Berlin Airlift for FJ, but thought it was in the ’50s.
LOL for the game:. answered skunk for chipmunk in the squirrel category, so guess what comes up later in 'What's that smell?' :lol:
