Re: FJs for the 1/15/18 week

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( :( Have both read the book and seen the movie. I thought it would be harder (for people who don't recognize the quote) to puzzle out than it seems to have been. Considered Remembrance but ruled it out. I have almost certainly eaten at least one...

I'm trying to think of a way to miss this FJ. Maybe if you don't know what Algonquin is? That clue practically highlighted the US and Canada on a map.
I nearly overthought it; surely it couldn't be that easy. But I couldn't come up with anything better, so I get to click the 5/5 box tomorrow.

At home, I got Casablanca. But if I were keeping any sort of score (let alone if i were playing for real), I'd have clammed, because I thought Casablanca was one of the big ones on the "What the heck was the Academy thinking not giving it Best Picture?" list.

Clammed on hockey, and said "testimony" only to realize a moment too late what the correct answer was. Baden-Baden was an "oh, of course" moment.

As for Friday's FJ, I said the full name, but if I was writing it down I would have just said "Mormon Church."

Instaget. Also precalled during the music that someone would guess Berlin for the other one. They didn’t.

I thought IPhone was the very obvious answer, and the easiest FJ so far this week. I do wonder if we benefit from some recent 10th anniversary publicity that might not have been around when this was filmed.
Yeah, with the hubbub over the X and the 10th anniversary, this was an instaguess for me.
