Re: Wednesday, October 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Hmm, so you're familiar enough with the poem to completely dismiss it but have never heard of "that outgrabe thingy before"? I only found out about "that outgrabe thingy" by Googling, but yes, I am extremely vaguely familiar with the poem's existence. And I hope I never actually have to read the bl...

Re: Wednesday, October 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

TPH: The "word" in the Out! category for $2000 was "Outgrabe". From that incredibly stupid nonsense poem by Lewis Carroll, "Jabberwocky". I never heard that outgrabe thingy before, either. I doubt you're missing anything (except a few correct J! responses) by not knowing this work of "literature". F...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Just FYI to Brett Lazer or anyone else who wants to have or even just pet a cat but is allergic... If the cat in question is a Maine Coon, go ahead. VERY unlikely to have an allergic reaction. The breed is known to be non-allergenic. I knew a woman that LOVED cats, but was allergic. However, her hus...

Can count me in as one who nailed the Neiman Marcus clue right... well, almost right...

Knew Leroy Neiman from sports telecasts where he showed up... (Hate his "art", btw), but stumbled and said Neiman AND Marcus.

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

I gotta go with Hammer's take on this one... Absolutely zero clue what this movie was, and the parodies don't do anything for me either. Not even after watching the original scenes so I had a reference point.

Re: TD 397 - SS

Another clarification question for Bonus #1: Are men's and women's sports separate? ie. if someone said "Women's Tiddlywinks and "Men's Tiddlywinks", would those be counted as one answer or two? (Provided, of course, that tiddlywinks was a correct answer...) :)

Re: Friday, September 28, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wouldn't have had a clue on FJ! without Alex's impression of Dracula impersonating Vito Corleone... However, based on the content of the line quoted, I thought it would be the sequel and said "Godfather II". Um, Hammer... Lifetime piano player and never heard of stride? Ever heard of Fats Waller?

That card doesn't describe me this week. Tuesday was the only one I got right.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

For me, the bottom line is: This team format seems pretty gimmicky, BUT having eighteen of the greatest J! players ever to grace that stage, all in the same tournament is can't-miss TV, plain and simple! I have no clue what teams are best at what aspect of the game and don't have any inkling who may...

Re: Monday, September 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

... That was the eephus pitch of FJs, and it totally got me. I thought of Brazil first, but I figured that was too easy and that the Amazon was north of the equator. Ended up going with Argentina. In related news, TIL that the Rio de la Plata is actually fairly short (180 miles). I fell for the sam...

Well, the link does say "THE Band Of Renown"...

I thought of maybe going with Glenn Miller Orchestra, but figured the "The" would kill it.
