Re: "I dunno"s before "Ho(e)"s?

I've done it before, I'd do it again: Make a Joke. I'd wager that my ability to make a joke is at least partially the reason I got asked back for the BoD. (I'm not saying they're always funny, but your delivery can be funny even if you're presenting your best guess.) On my latest miss, I sure enough...

Re: Thursday, July 17, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

For the Woody Allen question, I thought of another Woody Allen film "Manhattan" which also had three a's and later found out was also in the 70s I said, "Going Bananas". Then upon hearing the correct answer, I said to myself, "Oh, "Going Bananas" must've been that stupid Donny and Marie movie." The...

Re: Trebek's replacement: short bench

I threw my hat into the ring during the Battle of the Decades, even going so far as to ask Alex himself if he'd endorse me as a replacement during our post-game chat. As I recall, he said, "sure," then went on to talk about playing backgammon with Lucille Ball, so I'm not too hopeful. I'd be in favo...

Man, I've been on a hot streak of FJ gets; where were these clues during my run?!? I'm quite surprised this one wasn't a triple get, especially when spotted "13." I'll forgive the non-Americans, but c'mon, the rest of you! (After grumbling about this clue and the easiness of it, Mr. Dr. J pipes up: ...

Re: Friday, June 27, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Benedict Arnold was AMERICAN?!? Ummm, yes? If he were British, he wouldn't have been much of a traitor, would he? I had absolutely no idea what era he was from. For some reason I thought he was Roman or something. That dislocated my jaw. My parents may have thought that watching all those episodes ...

Instaget FJ, just hard to believe it was ten years ago! Lach trashed Victoria Woodhull. Folks, if you don't know about her, do yourselves a favor and look her up; her story is too crazy to be fiction. Thinking about Chris's sad DD bet (and resulting loss), I wonder how the show would handle stalling...

Jumped for joy at the Rodgers & Hammerstein category (BTW, it's pronounced HammerSTINE, not HammerSTEEN). Would have gone all in on the DD in half a heartbeat. Long before I discovered Gilbert & Sullivan, R&H were my guys. Loved hearing Alex saying "I Enjoy Being a Girl". Somebody's got to excerpt ...

Actually NOT a laundry- or laundromat -- in the basement of a Lutheran family camp :) I wouldn't actually waste quarters on such a thing! I'm pretty sure that if I didn't have access to free industrial dryers and tipsy friends, none of it would have ever happened.
