Re: RIP Carl Reiner at 98

I first encountered Carl Reiner in the 1950s, when he was part of Sid Caesar's comedy team on Your Show of Shows. I announced to my parents that when I grew up, I was going to marry Carl Reiner. I was a fickle little girl, though, since I later made the same announcement regarding Don Herbert (Mr. W...

Re: Friday, June 5, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Do they accept "the Scottish play" for "Macbeth"? What if they get an actor on the show? I have a background in amateur theater. During my orientation in the Green Room, someone (not me) asked Maggie whether "the Scottish play" would be accepted for "Macbeth." She laughed and said that Alex would p...

Re: Favorite Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host?

I chose Terry Crews, but I admit that my choice was heavily influenced by the fact that I am a big fan of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Re: Boardie Poll About Taking The Test

I took the test once (in 2008), got an audition, and sixteen months later I got The Call to be a contestant. After that, I ran out of luck and came in second.

I haven't been to Chicago in many years, but in the 1970s I used to travel there often. At that time, hot dogs sometimes included sliced tomatoes.

Re: Monday, January 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Welcome, Traci! This was an enjoyable game to watch, and your enthusiasm was one thing that made it so. I stood at the same podium many years ago, and upon watching my tape, I realized that I had a grim expression on my face as if my dog had just died. (I came in second, too. Curse of the Third Podi...

Re: What Alex Has Been Asked

In 2008 an audience member asked Alex "Boxers or briefs?"
The answer was "boxers." A few times he has even come onstage sans culotte.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 2 (1/8/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

History is not my strongest area, but sometimes I get some unexpected help from a pop culture source. The Napoleon/Madison connection instantly came to mind because I am a fan of the Bruce Campbell television series Jack of All Trades, in which Napoleon was played by the incomparable Verne Troyer.

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

See, what gets me is that the only way to make things "easier" is to splinter them into a bunch of smaller problems, which just sends my brain running in the other direction from the heaps of work that have just been added. I think many trivia lovers would not view this as "work." Teasing out infor...

I am sorry to see Elise go. She had elegance and wit, and her wardrobe demonstrated both. When I heard her anecdote about the "Miss Boris Karloff" cat, I feared that she had sealed her doom.

I don't know where my brain was vacationing during Final Jeopardy!, but my response was "Goth." If I'd been a contestant, maybe my sloppy handwriting could've made it look enough like "Gath" to get me the win, but I doubt it.

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.
