Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Re: Tuesday, April 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I really don't think "gypsy" is a slur in American English. Well that’s great for you, I guess? :roll: :roll: :roll: I don't think it's one thing or the other for me. It's just my understanding. It would appear to be the understanding of TPTB at Jeopardy at this point as well since they're willing ...

#HireKenJennings
Hmmmm. I don't know who the new Green Bay QB will be. But I'm pretty sure Ken's not even under consideration.

Re: Wednesday, April 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I feel like it's worth mentioning in passing, I am a gentile living among a significant Jewish population. Many of my Jewish friends were astonished to learn that other people thought of The Ten Commandments as an Easter movie. It seemed perfectly obvious to them that the story of Passover was show...

I noticed earlier this week, since I'm from Boston, that Johnny Gilbert was mispronouncing Winthrop, although Anderson wasn't. I'm sure Johnny has a bigger job than I think he does, but does anybody tell him how to pronounce these obscure Town names?

But obviously no one has to explain the difference between what I can say about my people and what you can, vice versa.
Definitely. It's kind of sad, though, since I only know 3 Gentile jokes. I feel as though my community is under-served.

Mel Gibson certainly wasn't a bad guess, but would they really refer to him as a "director?"
Maybe. I mean, it's not wrong. "Actor-director" might be more likely though. I might throw another descriptor or two in there, but Jeopardy! probably wouldn't.

Re: Wednesday, April 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Having to look up names like DeMille, David Lean, and my incorrect guess of Victor Fleming is not the same as experiencing their works growing up. How old do you think we are? :shock: DeMille, Fleming, and Lean (except for A Passage to India ) are before my time. I learned about them by listening t...

Re: Tuesday, April 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Your question on the chronology of the shift in acceptable usage is interesting and I do not know the answer. I do not interact with the one particular friend I discussed this with in depth in the way I once did, so I'm not sure when I will have an opportunity to pick her brain on that piece of thi...

I really don't think "gypsy" is a slur in American English. I have American friends of Roma descent who strongly disagree. When you know better, you do better. Do they believe that Americans who use the demonym are consciously using it in a derogatory manner? Or do they think most of us are unconsc...

But I don't think he's obligated to do anything since he did nothing wrong. And he's already paid dearly by having to face a savage mob with torches and pitchforks intent on lynching him before hearing what he had to say. Every single person who publicly accused him should post an equally forceful ...

I was cheering for Leah so I am glad she won but I don't like the way she won. Hari made what seems to be a wag. I got final instantly. Gibson directed The Passion of the Christ , so probably one of the better wrong answers, honestly. I thought so too. I felt bad for Hari that there was laughter fr...

A post to Kelly's Facebook states the following. (It doesn't address the Sinatra pic.) I’m truly horrified with what has been posted about me on social media. I absolutely, unequivocally condemn white supremacy and racism of any kind. People who know me personally know that I am not a racist, but f...
