Look that up in your Funk & Wagnall's.
Not only do I get this reference, I had a set of Funk & Wagnall's when I was in school.

Damn, I'm old... :lol:
So am I. We got our set one volume at a time, once a week, as a supermarket promo premium.

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was just a trifle surprised that "My God" .... "It's Full of Stores" elicited not a trace of a chuckle from either the contestants or the audience.

David Bowman would be disappointed.

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'll confess that the triple stumper on Negro Leagues had me yelling at the TV. Gotta admit, I missed it, too. "Negro Leagues" seemed too late; MLB had been integrated by 1952. I had to go with "American Association." There was an AA team in Indianapolis when I was growing up watching the Denver Be...

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

I think the problem is that said gypsum mine is in Alabaster Township, which fools my brain into thinking that the material is called "alabaster" long enough to distract me from pulling up the actual word. The township is probably named after the mine -- alabaster IS a form of gypsum. Maybe knowing...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 2/18/2019 (SPOILERS)

Would not have rung in on "humane society" or "Norton's Anthology" (went down the path of "organization for prevention of cruelty to animals????" and knew it was wrong, so would have clammed), but answered the rest correctly. Would have had $13,600 from the misses going into FJ, and would have bet t...

Re: TD 412 - SenseiCAY's birthday Mini-TD (Q6 and final standings revealed)

My abysmal performance suggests that those things I think "No one is going to say that" are exactly the things that (almost) everyone does remember...and submit as their answer. I don't remember who said this, but I was told to "take the answer you most medium suspect." I've seen it mentioned on th...

Re: FJ Poll for 2/8/2019

"Taming of the Shrew" and "Much Ado About Nothing" were my top two choices. Went with "Much Ado" since much of the play consists of musing soliloquys by the leads, and lines quoted fall into that pattern, along with fitting into the theme of being in love but either not recognizing it or not admitti...

Re: Monday, February 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My biggest "had no clue" of the game was in regards to web archives; did not know "wayback machine" related to that and was unfamiliar with the nomenclature for SUV seat rows.

If they had asked about Mr. Peabody and Sherman with a 1960s station wagon, however, would have had it in a heartbeat.

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Missed with "Much Ado About Nothing," another play where what was displayed outside didn't seem to match the feelings inside. They could do it billions and billions of times, and "Cornell" plus "astronomer" will always = "Sagan."

My first exposure to Balzac came after wondering just who, exactly, Mrs. Paroo was talking about when she was singing to Marian during Winthrop's piano lesson. Not to quibble too much, but I think it was Mrs. Shinn in "Pick a Little, Talk a Little" Who else shouted out "Who is BALZAC?" in the affro...

Re: TD 412 - SenseiCAY's birthday Mini-TD

Thanks for a quick, fun one, even though my over/under for wrong answers is two.

And happy birthday. Our first grandson was born yesterday; nice to know he's in such distinguished company.

Just remembered I said habañera when the correct response was habanera. They might have let me get away with that but they really shouldn't. As to why I made that mistake, I blame Decca Records. They use that misspelling on the track listing for my CD of Lalo and Chabrier pieces. I didn't realize i...
