Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I LOLed at the MCWA for the 1921 Oldsmobile: "The Dukes of Hazzard." I guess people that put that down were really banking on the "highly modified" part of the question. That would be highly modified all right! For my guess at the "highly modified" part, I put down Inspector Gadget. I figured it wa...

I thought Tuesday's might have something to do with Vienna, but I wouldn't have guessed "Congress of" in five hundred billion years.

Re: Friday, December 8, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

When the FJ category was revealed, I was terrified it was going to be someone from a sitcom like Modern Family. Fortunately, it was something I actually knew.

I also got The Doors, and I've read the book.

Re: TPH on WoF 12/8/17 discussion [SPOILERS]

This was the first full episode of WoF I've watched in well over two decades. Great job, especially with those letter picks in the final round! I also got IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE with no letters. I thought DOING A BEAUTIFUL JOB was a plausible guess for "What are you doing?" once BEAUTIFUL was obvious...

Re: Wednesday, December 6, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got hurdy-gurdy thanks to Arcade Fire (I'd heard of the thing before then, but I didn't know what it looked like until that song) and cock-a-leekie thanks to Jeeves and Wooster . FJ was less a WECIB than an IINTISINHO (If It's Not That, It's Something I've Never Heard Of). I vacillated between add...

Augh, that could have been my first 6-correct day since I started playing along if I'd paid a little more attention.

Re: FJs for the 11/27/17 week

I would have guessed the puffy shirt if it were a DD, but I clammed because I didn't know there was a (and still don't quite understand the) connection to the low talker. My recollection is that the "low talker" was a fashion designer and asks Jerry to wear the shirt. Jerry doesn't understand her (...

Re: Thursday, November 30, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thought FJ was describing a flag with two things in the central image. Eventually I just went, "There's a tree on Lebanon's flag, isn't there? Maybe there's something else, too. Whatever, it's better than nothing." This is one of those games that makes me wis...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Several years ago, I watched some videos of someone playing a video game called Nitronic Rush. It's a driving game, and if you crash in such a way that your vehicle is destroyed, a random message appears -- something like "BUMMER" or "TOO BAD" or "HOLY TOLEDO". My favorite by far, though, was "IT KE...

Another Greece & Iraq here. I was just looking at Armenia on a map Tuesday night, and I noticed that Iraq extended farther east. But I failed to notice Iran sitting right there between them. When deciding between Iran and Iraq, I went with the one I was 100% sure borders Turkey. :roll: I think I wou...

I know the rule, and figured it wouldn't be accepted when I saw his answer, but I don't like it one bit in this case. That's just too much to write and he wrote enough to identify the album. I agree. The writers need to cool it with these novel-length FJ responses. But since they only seem to be ge...

I was already writing off a whole week of FJs when, about halfway though the think music, I realized it was just "name a famous Albanian" and, having already dismissed King Zog, instantly came up with ol' Agnes Gonka-Bajonka. The channel I watch on because of WABC's habit of preëmpting J! whenever t...

Based on a certain other thread, I assume I wasn't the only one who laughed when the MONSTER MASH category was revealed. I spent all the think time on this FJ wandering around the midwest and Louisiana Purchasey areas. Because there are only so many states, I paused it after time ran out, and about ...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

One downside of playing along as a nonmember is seeing the category on a question like the Fisher one. It was a bit of a giveaway. I remember one like that sometime in the last few seasons, too. Until I started listening to Comedy Bang Bang regularly, I thought ALW was the lyricist. Now I know bette...

2007 seemed a little early for the iPad, but I remember a common criticism when it was first announced being, "Who would want this giant thing?"

I have a first gen iPod Touch, which is the same size as the iPhone. It's tiny.
