Not to quibble but Isengard isn't the country either. It's a region in Calenardhon, which in turn was a part of greater Gondor until...

Too bad he didn't say he wanted to "poll the audience" (as many contestants do). :mrgreen:
The producers specifically ask you NOT to state it that way. Always say "Ask the Audience".
I know, but some still do.

NHO a fireside chat.

All but "Doddering" in 3 Consonants. I said "wobbling" which I wonder would've been enough for an overturn.

As for FJ, I guess I'm the only one who has never heard of paramnesia - if it hadn't been for the "sound familiar," I might not have gotten it. I really don't believe I've ever seen or heard "paramnesia" in any context so I'm curious how it was so commonly known by everyone else. I feel like, witho...

This author whom Helen Keller could identify by his cigar scent was the first to call Anne Sullivan a “Miracle Worker” Got it because I literally couldn't think of another author who was famous for smoking cigars -- of any time period -- which I guess was the pure tease-out intention.

Charleston just never crossed my mind on FJ. I doubt many people knew this one cold, I knew it cold and so did my mother, having read the book. In fact, related to MarkBarrett's post, it's a very easy FJ if you've read the book and quite a difficult one if you haven't. I wouldn't say that - I got C...

$50,000 prize pool tonight. I'm sure they're going to make us suffer through plenty of "The Voice"-related nonsense but 50k is 50k.
