Maybe it's my intensified interest in WWTBAM, but this was an instaget. I can see why people might not have gotten it, but the TS surprised me.
It was an instaget for me because I was on BAM in 2000 with Regis.

All this composer talk reminds me of a M*A*S*H episode where Radar is taught to pronounce Bach as "Baaah". As edgy as it was, that is one sitcom that didn't age well. Sort of a period piece inside a period piece. And crossdressing schtick hasn't been funny since evah! Mmm, Bach... Actually, it's "A...

I'd love to trade his $50K question about popular vote winners / election losers for my Sesame Street question. Just not ready to let that one go ;)
Trust me, it's hard. After 18 years, I still can't let my $125K question go.

(Took me a while to comprehend they said "Otis" instead. Still got the clue.) Also, why were "Siamese twins" accepted in the clue? No, I'm not ...

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".

All but "Doddering" in 3 Consonants. I said "wobbling" which I wonder would've been enough for an overturn.
No, because "wobbling" doesn't fit - the category was 3 consonants, and "wobbling" only has two.

It was interesting that they called Noel a man's name. The first Noel I thought of was Noel Neill.
I thought of Noel Coward.
