Re: Reretaken Down

Page 3 is unusual to have to find this thread. To bump it up it's bad news as I only found out today that Denise Nickerson (Violet Beauregarde in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory ) died on July 10th at age 62. Besides the iconic film role I also remember her in the "Two Petes in a Pod" episode o...

Re: JBoard Demographic Survey

When this poll was first posted, there were no respondents in the 70+ bracket. I am now over 70, and I would not be surprised if a few other boardies are, as well. I hope so, anyway. Being the oldest person in the room is not something I relish.

Re: Your Screenname: What inspired it?

I've used "pinkfreud" as a screen name ever since the days of dial-up computer bulletin boards. I used to be an aptitude testing specialist in a government office, and my co-workers called me "Doc Freud." When I was trying to think of an online nickname, I didn't want people to think I was male, so...

Re: Messages will return to Final

I'm betting they would not do digital editing, for legal reasons. If they are known to have ever digitally edited anything that a contestant has written in FJ, that might open the door to the possibility of (false) allegations that something has been altered if there's a dispute over what someone ha...

Re: Thursday, June 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which has both a park and a museum named after Woody Guthrie, so this FJ was a "gimme" for me. I assume that Emma was thinking of Arlo, who is better known these days, thanks to the enduring success of "Alice's Restaurant."

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

With all the discussion of the game's outcome there hasn't been much discussion of any of the clues. I got FJ, but had to cross out Chaucer in the final seconds. Marlowe dying young wasn't something that I could dredge up in 30 seconds, but I finally realized Chaucer was unlikely to be the answer t...

Re: Andy's Millionaire Experience

I really enjoyed reading this! I had considered trying for Millionaire (before my cognitive decline), but never did so. It is surprising to learn that they give such short notice. Many people would have had to turn down the offer because they just couldn't make all the necessary arrangements so quic...

Most of us have some tics or quirks that are likely to appear in stressful situations. When I was a contestant, I picked my nose more than...

Re: RIP Charles Van Doren

I remember watching Van Doren's amazing performance on 21 with my family, on our old black-and-white TV. We were mesmerized. Like much of America, we were rooting for this handsome, personable guy to win big. When the truth was revealed, it was like a betrayal by a friend.

You might have better luck trying for The Joker's Wild, hosted by Snoop Dogg.
I didn't know that this one had been revived. They should've changed the show's name to The Smoker's Wild.

$100,000 Pyramid casting call

I just became aware that this show is still around. I haven't watched it since pre-inflation days when it was The $10,000 Pyramid . I received this in an email today: The $100,000 Pyramid is currently casting nationwide for season 4! And the show's producers are looking for smart, dynamic, and energ...

Re: Wednesday, January 30, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Dorothy Parker was an instaget for me. I am indebted to her for numerous witticisms. My favorite: when a youngish person gestures that I should precede her through a doorway and says (snarkily) "Age before beauty," I graciously flit through the doorway and murmur "Pearls before swine."

Aside from Jackie's current run (and celebrity games), has there ever been a better chance of a contestant herself being the response/subject of a clue in a game she was playing?

...I can't hear the word "garbanzo" without recalling the days (80s, IIRC) when Skip Bayless was writing a regular column in one of the Dallas newspapers under the pseudonym Joe Bob Briggs, in which "garbanzos" had an entirely different meaning. Yeah, those were the days. Are you sure about this? F...
