"I remember seeing a clip of a guy who was attacked by a deer after he put deer urine on his clothes. That was great television.”
If that's the clip I'm thinking of, he's not wrong.

Missed Managua because I didn't RTFQ (RTFC?). I thought it said South American and went through all of the capitals without finding it.
I thought it said Central African. I'd have missed it anyway, but still... :oops:

Re: Thursday, July 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I missed "Song of Roland" with "Marseillaise." I have Roland very strongly associated with Stephen King and I'm going to struggle to get "Song of Roland" clues. Browning clues about Roland aren't as bad. I mentioned in last Friday's thread that the book that FJ was about was one of four I've read m...

Re: Friday, July 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's so hard to believe that the music that came up in that category is already 20 years old! Just last night, I was thinking about how the albums I listened to a lot in high school (a little older than the ones in that category) are now older than the Beatles albums I listened to as a kid were at ...

Is it a 50/50/100 choice when I'm sure it's one of two things, pick one almost at random, then find out they were both wrong anyway? A soon as I saw the orangutan, I thought, "I hope this clue is about Sumatra." LT: police, Nathan Hale, reckoned (a) second, diving, and I thought of emollient but cla...

I really appreciated Ray's Sean Connery cosplay. It's too bad there wasn't an "S" WORDS or AN ALBUM COVER category. I was just completely on the wrong track for this FJ. For some reason I was only thinking of those who left office and tried to think of the latest one, and I didn't even think of VPs ...

Not sure if I'd heard of Westerbork. I haven't read or seen The Joy Luck Club, but I used to do a lot of crossword puzzles.

Texas Hold Em - 1 (singleton!) Kirbstar Aw, I could've been all alone at the top. For some reason I thought people would expect Hearts to sheep and avoid it, but maybe they all thought that too.

When have they accepted "Who is Caesar?" I agree that shouldn't happen. HISTORIC TRIOS $200 MURDERED TO DEATH $200 QUOTATIONS $1200 PARDON ME $400 And so on in that fashion. They've used just "Caesar" to refer to Julius in clues a lot, so it's kind of consistent, but they also acknowledge there wer...

Re: TD 385 - Old School (Questions 1-8 revealed)

When I said I came here to ruin singletons, I thought those would be Gossamer and Earl Scruggs. I guess the old plucker was more popular here than I thought. At least I chose correctly on Gossamer vs. Michigan J. Frog and Obadiah vs. Ezekiel.

Re: TD 385 - Old School (Questions 1-5 revealed)

Hey, I just came here to ruin some singletons, so being (ever so briefly) in the lead is a pleasant surprise. Until right before I submitted, I had Stan Lee for Q2 and DROP for Q5 because I wasn't 100% sure about any of those songs. Then I said to myself, "If 'The Old Apartment' is BNL and you don't...
