Blanked on humanity Tuesday, went with “Oh the horror”

Did not see the casino clue, probably would have gone with New York, New York.

If I were being snarky, I might say a librarian should know how to spell Austen, even if it was the wrong answer.

I agree “Iberian Penninsula” should have been negged.

The Handmaid’s Tale was also made into a mostly forgotten 1990 movie with a cast including Robert Duvall, Faye Dunaway and Natasha Richardson.

Did not realize The Seven Year Itch had been a play, which sent me in the wrong direction and I guessed Hay Fever, which was about 50 years too early. Never saw the movie.

I didn’t know which island RLS died on, but I knew it was in the South Pacific, which coupled with Scotland made this pretty much an instaget.

NHO the memoirs and have not seen the recent movie, so I was lost for FJ. Guessed Christopher Tolkien, but was pretty sure he didn’t qualify as famous.

Amstel wasn't a bad guess. The Amstel River flows through Amsterdam.
Heineken also produces Amstel beer.

NHO Santa Claus Indiana

Prefer to see people win a couple of games to one and done, but not a fan of uncompetitive games and long winning streaks either.

Have an entry in the sweepstakes.

NHO garbanzo beans, swiss chard, bearnaise sauce, or tarragon either. HOW do you know all this ultra-fancy food?!
I’d be willing to bet that canned garbanzo or chickpeas are sold in every supermarket in the U.S., and Swiss Chard in most of them.

Instaget FJ in my worst category. I've learned if I just remember Egypt = Aida and Japan = The Mikado, I'll get there quite often. When Egypt/Japan aren't mentioned, just sprinkle in random guesses of Carmen, Magic Flute, and Marriage of Figaro :lol: You might also consider Japan = Madame Butterfly...

The FJ! clue had my coin fall on the wrong side as the ghost of Kate Smith must have been influenced the toss. At least it is one of those misses when I know I will have company before the day is done. God Bless America? For me, the two that came to mind were Star Spangled Banner and America the Be...

No J! In NY due to football. I was living in Montreal in 1976, so that was easy. My recollection of Munich was jogged by watching part of The Little Drummer Girl on cable this week, in which the Munich massacre was referenced. Moscow was the one that didn’t immediately come to me, probably because o...
