Count me in for 'right author, wrong novel'. Do I smell a poll question?

Re: Monday, October 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wasn't assigning blame, but it was at least somewhat implied that engineers were responsible given Kirk's comment. Interesting. I read Kirk!'s comments exactly the opposite: that engineers are involved to make sure the architects' pretty designs don't fall down. Exactly. So when the pretty design...

Can we not use this message board to facilitate episode piracy?
This is like one of those gestalt images. I keep flipping back and forth between reading this as 'please let's not facilitate piracy,' and 'hey, let's use this board to facilitate piracy!'

Yeah. I felt pretty good about it while totally blowing past the Roebling clue. John and Washington Roebling being the architects Ahem, engineers. What's the difference?

Ahem, engineers. What's the difference? (I'm hoping for at least one punchline supplied by each side here.) An architect could design a pretty bridge, but without the help of a civil engineer that pretty bridge could end up in the river rather than spanning it. :D But only if it's used incorrectly .

Has anyone ever done a meta-analysis of these poll results?
Your read on the room may vary, of course, but I think a better question might be 'Has anyone on this board updated their meta-analysis of the poll results since breakfast?'

Welp. That's disappointing.
The FJ! clue going 0/3, the winner's total, the winner herself, the leader not winning? Other?
Clearly I was unclear. After getting my rear end kicked on FJ! lately, I thought for sure this one would score higher. Hugo’s point is well taken.

I didn’t hear ‘verboden’ or ‘verbodem’, but I distinctly thought I heard ‘Carrie BRONstein‘ instead of ‘BROWNstein‘. Is that really close enough?

Thanks for hosting, clt013, and sorry to Larry Wilcox. I waited a solid week to submit, hoping I'd recall that name, but nuthin'.

That clue started a medley of 'Biko' and 'Sun City' in my head that lasted far longer than the think music. I knew neither was the correct answer, but it's hard to think with the music blaring.

I also thought this was harder than last week, on par with a regular 'adult' contestant quiz. 42/50. Count me in also for Doberman (I thought, just maybe, pinsch-ing would be something done with the forelegs...).
