At the end of DJ alluding to the lock game

Alex: What a great way to start the week!

Kirk: Depends on your point of view you bleeping Canuck!


Material seemed to be unusually basic making the game a buzzer contest.

I'm very interested to see today's show. I can remember the FJ clue but not much else.

Apollo -> the Sun -> the Sun King -> Louis XIV, the longest-reigning monarch in European history. He lived so long that his successor, Louis XV, was his great-grandson.

Instrumental Rockers threw me. I didn't know they wanted the instrument, so I said "Cream" on $200. Is it SO freaking hard to EXPLAIN?!? I went 0/5 in the category.

Got only $200 and $1000 in Mangia! No idea where gnocchi came from, other than my affinity for weird-sounding words. Held off on alfredo as too obvious, no clue on the other two.

NHO the bottom two Cats proverbs. I said "blind" on $800.

Should've gone 4/5 on Curtains, but I saw no way to figure out $400 was shower, brain-farted the next two, and said Iron on $1000.

0/5 on Famous Names. Misread the Zuckerberg clue, so I thought it was someone meeting him.

Evergreen State was there but wouldn't come out.

4/5 in Call Triple A, missing only charlatan, but got only 3 other right. Clammed on Madison County, Vatican, India, and Mandarin, and blanked on Louvre.

"This 17th century king—" "No clue." Heard of Louis XIV = Sun King, but couldn't piece it together.

The guy who won seems extremely sharp, but he's got to drop this hipsterish "J" affectation. I kept thinking of that soap opera actor A Martinez.

Did anyone else find Jay's obsessive sleeve shuffling both annoying and distracting?

Sorry to see a boardie like you Kirk depart...

For me, knew it wasn't a Greek king or an English king... then thought Apollo, Sun God... Sun... Sun... Sun King and then Louis XiV.

So there you go.

Alex did explain the "Instrumental Rockers' category, but thanks for posting your Daily Drivel.
She caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride.

Me three! But I've been bothered by much worse before.

...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

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

I've got to recognize when I've locked myself into a dead end in FJ!. Wound up with nothing because I figured it'd be a king with an interest in astronomy.

3/5 Cats. Said black instead of gray for $800 and had my head in the gutter for the $1,000 clue and thought that a cat in heat caught no mice.

4/5 Asian Languages (Persian instead of Hebrew), as well. I figured it'd be a category about East Asian languages specifically, being a part of the world I'm interested in, but I was able to rebound quickly when I realized it was broader than that.

Well, my FJ streak remains intact. Apollo = Sun god= Louis Quatorze. Near-insta.
Kirk, I'm almost relieved you missed it and J got it, that means your brain cramp on "Castaway" didn't cost you the game. I just sensed you had it rattling around in your grey crevasses, just couldn't spelunk it out.

Yeah, I was starting to wonder about J's sleeve adjustment after each response. I wonder if he plays pro baseball? Their batting gloves never seem to hold their fit for more than one pitch.
Between boards, a producer should've approached him with a stapler. "Want me to tack those down to your wrists?"

I'm sorry you lost, Kirk. J seemed to be really fast on the buzzer.

I was about to reach through the screen and throttle him. So I guess yeah, I did.

Plus he dissed Trebek and got away with it. I thought he was going to be toast.

Sorry to see you go, Kirk. Hopefully you enjoyed your day in the Sun King. Ouch, that was terrible ...
