Reasonable inference.
Given the playground rhyme, you might think Lizzie Borden was 16, but she was 32.
They grow so quickly in Fall River ...

Yes, but given the playground rhyme, you might think that Lizzie Borden had something to do with her parents' deaths.
...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.

FJ: Instaget. Anthony's $100 fine for voting has come up at pub quiz at least once. 10 in a row for me.
Pavlovs: 5/7. I added some response filters today, which identified Clio as the only muse to fit the category. It scored some Lach Trash for me. Edwin Moses and Bergman were my misses.

Keyword: 400-meter hurdles = Edwin Moses
Keyword: muse = Clio ([response is length 4, response starts with "c"])
Name: Charles VII = Joan of Arc
Keyword: Japanese Prime Minister = Tojo
Keyword: artificial bait = Lure
Quote: Rashomon = Kurosawa
Quote: Fanny and Alexander = Bergman

Did I mention this would've been a good game for the now-defunct ZergCam?

Is there evidence that it is defunct, or just assumed based on 3+ years of non-use. I'm not doubting you, just wondering, as I don't recall hearing of this before.

Yes, someone please tell me, because I was praying for ZergCam.

I found the ZergCam in the dumpster outside the studio on West Washington Blvd. It was stamped "defunct." Still works, though, except if you point it at a person expecting to win. Jennifer, if you want it, it's yours for $37,000.

The ZergCam is best when it is used infrequently. But has it really been three years? That's a bit too long.
