Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Maybe we should poll the "jimmies" issue. Like the poster above, I've always considered the dk. brown ones jimmies and the multicolored ones sprinkles. https://youtu.be/EkdvIVyuO8U I've never heard of them called jimmies -- they're all sprinkles to me. Same here. I'd need the the poll suggested by ...

Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not in love with this pure trivia, no-TOM Final. It's basically "pick a non-traditional Christmas song". Not sure what prevents it from being "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" or "Silver Bells" or "Frosty The Snowman" or "Holly Jolly Christmas" or a variety of others. Can't disagree. I thought "Montg...

$10,000 even. Responded with "raptor" and "operetta," even though I've never associated personally associated vultures with raptors -- I think of them more as scavengers.

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 12/3/2019 (SPOILERS)

Got all but "latitude" (said "relief" instead) and Margo Channing, for $15,000 using the base value of the DD. Don't know what I would have wagered in the category. Correct on FJ, but again don't know what I would have wagered. With a tie, would have either gone with zero or everything, depending on...

Re: Monday, December 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

DD3 had me at a loss also; I never would have gotten to mummy in time. Cheops + "worm" got me to "nasty Egyptian worm-like creature" and left me floundering with "asp." But I couldn't imagine that being the topic of a novel. But I can imagine the film version: Snakes in a Pyramid. LIKE Ditto with t...

Re: Monday, December 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

DD3 seemed problematic to me with "worm" pointing toward "dragon" but "Cheops" pointing toward something more explicitly Egyptian. I thought about the correct response ("mummy") but it seemed odd to refer to a mummy as a "creature". I assume the mummy becomes animate and causes trouble, which makes...

So am I the only one who doesn't think of "deal" as a one-syllable word? We definitely agreed with you at my house, especially when Alex clearly pronounced it with two syllables. I remember marveling in my younger days about the ability of Southern Baptist preachers to pronounce many one-syllable w...

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Seemed unnecessarily vague for an FJ clue, maybe they thought "battlements" would steer people in the right direction? That has to be the intended TOM; knowing that a "battlement" was part of a castle. I admit that I did not know the term. I focused on "broken", trying to think of characters living...

Different spelling but Gabrielle's last name of Merken made me think of the, ahem, movie-making item whose definition I would only know from Whoopi mentioning it more than once on The View . It was also mentioned in an episode of "The "Simpsons" that caused a water-choking moment for me -- Wille th...

Re: Wednesday, November 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Incidentally, the quote "Stella! Hey Stella!" is on the list, so it was a good guess...except for the 1951 part. If it hadn't been a decade off, and they hadn't given the years, it would be cheap, because most people just go "Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" when remembering the quote. (Or, at least, that's ho...

And a little-known variant of the same riddle that some may not know: A man walks a mile due south, a mile due east, then a mile due north. He ends up back where he started. He sees a bird. What color is the bird? Er... did you mean a mile due NORTH, a mile due east, then a mile due SOUTH? Or am I ...

Re: Thursday, November 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That reminds me of an old riddle - that most here probably know already. A man walks a mile due south, a mile due east, then a mile due north. He ends up back where he started. He sees a bear. What color is the bear? White. It has to be a polar bear. That actually describes a triangle with two righ...

I know it's a stretch, but, thoughts on "pommel" for "An 8-letter Olympic game of horse"?
Um, "pommel" is six letters...
Wow, good point! I was so focused on the double letters in the middle that I glossed right over that.
"Ppommell," on the other hand.....

Amen. She won't become a super-champ or make it to the ToC, but IMHO she was both a very competent player and a pleasure to watch. Congrats, dear lady, and sorry to see you go.
Darn -- the "like" button is still missing. Very much enjoyed watching Elise's episodes.
