Daimyo; of the three I considered, samurai was the one I thought was least likely.
Have never seen The Beverly Hillbillies, but I think I have an MP3 of the theme song.
Unfamiliar with "perambulator."

Re: Tuesday, February 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Sometimes it helps to remember the category: ENTERTAINE”D”. I did not know it, but figured out which team to guess since I always start recalling teams with the NL West. I thought of the Diamondbacks but clammed, because why would the Diamondbacks have a bobcat mascot? (A quick visit to Google reve...

No guess on "Purple People-Eaters." Got stuck thinking "Four Horsemen," which I knew wasn't right.

"Mardi Gras" is not a good answer for some other phrase in French. :oops: Hey, you were only one day off. No guess on FJ! I considered Daedalus, Icarus, and Pegasus, but couldn't connect any of them with a character and the idea of picking a mythological name and hoping for the best didn't occur to...

Mary Poppins, ending a streak at 10 correct.
I'm not sure if I've received anything from PCH. I usually don't look at junk mail.
Also not sure if I've read a full Longstocking book. I might have for school.

I'm trying to think of a way to miss this FJ. Maybe if you don't know what Algonquin is? That clue practically highlighted the US and Canada on a map.
I nearly overthought it; surely it couldn't be that easy. But I couldn't come up with anything better, so I get to click the 5/5 box tomorrow.

Re: Monday, January 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

At home, I got Casablanca. But if I were keeping any sort of score (let alone if i were playing for real), I'd have clammed, because I thought Casablanca was one of the big ones on the "What the heck was the Academy thinking not giving it Best Picture?" list.

Clammed on hockey, and said "testimony" only to realize a moment too late what the correct answer was. Baden-Baden was an "oh, of course" moment.
