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".

It's a round table. What else was I supposed to guess?
Well, see Johnny's cross out above.
Yeah, that was my guess too. Nevermind those people obviously aren't knights. Well, except for the knight, I suppose.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Props to the 40% who knew de Fermat. I've taken a lot of math classes in my life and never heard of him that I can recall. It could be something non-math people are just as likely to know. "Fermat's Last Theorem" is almost pop culture--or at least as pop culture as something involving math can be! ...

The CC said his last name was Scharff. That wasn’t in the archive, either.

Another Minotaur here. Poll request for that?
Okay, Scharff, thanks.

Yes, I expect that wrong beast to be on the poll.
Good piece on his recent retirement here.

The FJ! clue had me thinking two things immediately. The week is off to a good start with a no doubt solve and who (turned out to be Ashley) would go a certain wrong way. I’ll call now it will be a poll choice as Ashley will find company on the board.
She sure will. Darn it.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Do you think "Ziegfield" was accepted for Ziegfeld? I see PT Barnum as the MCWA, so I'm suspecting it was. I was that close on Q1. Went with "get naked" even though it seemed ungainly to have the word "get" used twice. Not sure why I didn't think of "be naked." Oh well, still managed a tie. I put Z...
