Another problem with FJ, besides the Blue Rider debacle, is that, if you remember high school art, Impressionism was named for a Monet painting: Impression Sunrise. This doesn't square with Jeopardy's account of the origin. But, then again, I guess there's always more to the story.

The full name of the establishment they're referring to is The Original Hot Dog Shop.

But when you go to Pittsburgh, your first fry experience should involve a Primanti Bros. sandwich.

I've been to Pittsburgh (several times) and have never heard of them. Now I see why. They are not within walking distance of my hotel.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

I heartily second the Primanti Bros. suggestion. :)

I'll be the fourth. Primanti's is all over the city, while the O is only in Oakland (frequented by college kids).

True, though the only REAL one is the dirty one in the Strip.

Somehow never made it the O, though Primanti's in The Strip (as well as Benkovitz) was a regular destination. That and Chiodo's in Homestead.

I hate to tell you this, but Chido's is gone. It's now a Walgreen's and Subway.

Wasn't happening here either. I have no idea why they thought that quote would or should lead us to the correct response. I figured "blue" was the TOM somehow and followed it to Picasso but didn't know where to go from there. I ended up saying Cubism even though I knew Picasso's blue period was not the same as his cubist period. I thought Mark's guess of Fauvism was terrific and Salvo's of Modernism wasn't bad either. Anne's guess of Impressionism was by far the weakest. Except for the part where it was right.
I used the same thinking to arrive at Cubism. I still don't know what about this clue was supposed to lead to a correct answer, other than, perhaps, you know it or you don't.

alietr wrote:I have no idea where they pulled that from, but I'd hardly call it how the movement was born. I know a fair amount about Impressionism, and had never heard this one. In fact, if you Google the quote (in quotes), there aren't an awful lot of references to it on the Web. Nope, this was a real stinker of a clue with very little pointing you correctly to the response. Boo, hiss. (FTR, I responded Fauvism to have something regarding color.)
How the movement was born? IIRC it came from the single work "Impression: Sunrise" or something to that effect. Nothing whatsoever to do with which color they had or ran out of.

That's exactly right. It's was Monet's "Impression, Soleil Levant" that lent its name to the movement. While color is obviously an important factor, it is not a defining characteristic.

Would you believe I listened to Dynasty just the other night? Ace did some good singing on that one.

But what if they want to team up against you for Trivia? Better invite Watson!
