Re: FJs for the 4/16/18 week

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( Wed - truth, life. Probably needed another 3-4 minutes for way, even if the clue was correctly rephrased. I'm Watson-level confident I've heard the 'If you have time to lean...' line in real life, but much too long ago to make a difference w...

Re: Friday, April 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm accepting "Stuart Little Bear" for that one. Anyone else disappointed that Flacco wasn't in the Elite Athletes category? Or is that too niche?... Instafinal. Made more amusing by the news that Terry Gilliam's 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' is getting released at Cannes. Flacco isn't elite. <B...

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

Uh... even if you DID include animated, I doubt I could get to 5. I haven't been paying attention to the animated ones either, There is absolutely no way you can't name 5 movies to come out in the past 4 years. Seriously, just put forth the minimum effort here. La La Land, Deadpool... uhhhhhh.... G...

Re: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I found this FJ clue to be awkwardly worded, as if they literally wanted a three word phrase - no more, no less. And again, if the writers were trying for equally difficult FJ for each of the three semi-finals, this one seemed much more difficult. Yesterday, it's basically a Kids' Week clue and tod...

I found this FJ clue to be awkwardly worded, as if they literally wanted a three word phrase - no more, no less. I thought the same initially until I pieced through the Latin and remembered the Bible verse. My gut feeling tells me Twitter rage will be high on this one. Yeah, very clunky wording. I ...

Also All the King's Men.

I would argue that the word "King's" is not the same as the word "King", in both your example and "The King's Speech".

But the word 'King' still appears in 'King's' even if they're different words.

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

You like to have hundreds, thousands and millions of possibles in your FJ! clue Rolodex while the show itself does not. Yes, because everyone who played along knew the flight simulator one, right? Or swan song, Liederkranz, "Wall Street lays an egg", Bratt/Blatt, golden spurs, Carabelli & Durazzo.....

So what were the keywords on this FJ! anyway? There's lots of immortality and there are lots of warriors in Greek mythology. Attempts. So, before we go any further, are you familiar with Achilles' origin and demise? Because otherwise I'm going to be spinning wheels here... I am, but "immortality" a...

I can happily say that my mom never tried foisting a 'snack' based on celery onto me during my childhood. :)
Celery makes a wonderful peanut butter delivery system.
