I'm surprised 2/3 had Warren but not Warner. As soon as I saw "Warren + ?" I said, "well, the other one must be Warner, because that's the only other name I can make out of those letters."
:shock: I think he's got it. By George, I think he's got it!

Still didn't help me, because I had neither one within the 30 seconds.

Also, I have a lot of relatives with the last name Warner, so spotting the anagram was easy.

I blanked on Warren's name thanks in no small part to our crude POTUS' insults which dominated my retrieval process.
On a side note, a Trump press conference wiped out the show here.

Why did the use a euphemism for "Hell" in Hand for $400? I've heard far saltier language not get bowdlerized.
Probably not for the sake of censorship but rather so as not to give the saying away as easily.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

If you are going to miss FJ based on the category, then wagering 0 is the most reasont bet, no matter what place you are in.
If you have zero chance of answering correctly you wouldn't have been there in the first place.

Zero wagers have merit in certain situations, this is not one of them.
No smiley for my anagram? ;)
Oh man, I even noticed that spelling and it didn't click. Plus I had used my allotment of smileys yesterday.....

Very nice
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D

And now I'm all out of smileys for today.

Did Lindsey remind anyone of Sarah Huckabee Sanders?

DOUBLE TALK $1200: would “no-no” be good for “matchy-matchy”?
Haha, I also went with "no-no", but was pretty sure they wouldn't have accepted it.

OMG 100% NO! NO! NO!

Also negged with napalm, thanks to recent viewing of The Night Manager - (shakes fist at Hugh Laurie)

Guessed wrong with Geek Love on the traveling circus book clue. Never read Water for Elephants, but in hindsight this was not a very good guess. According to J-Archive, they've asked for this book not once :(

Wonder if just Lindbergh would've been accepted for Anne Morrow Lindbergh, since just Custer was accepted earlier in the category

On that MARQUEE NAMES category, I was burned 3x by only coming up with half of the pair

I know Robert Redford but I always confuse him with Paul Newman - it's a faulty brain thing

Unless you subscribe to the Zombie Reagan theory.

I got an idea, why not start a Republican president bashing thread?

Uhh, are you aware of what the Tecumseh Curse is? It’s supposedly a curse placed by Native American Chief Tecumseh that ill will befall presidents elected in years divisible by 20, the first being Tecumseh’s foe at Tippecanoe, WH Harrison. This surprisingly held true in 1860 (Lincoln), 1880 (Garfield), 1900 (McKinley), 1920 (Harding), 1940 (F Roosevelt) and 1960 (JFK), all of whom died in office (as well as all four assassinated presidents). The next two (Reagan and GW Bush) both beat the curse (if there ever was one). Note that it’s a complete coincidence these two are Republicans, and boardies are humourously extrapolating that maybe they did fall victim to the curse and we just saw zombies and androids. If the 2020 President also lives through their term and they are a Democrat, would you assume we were Democrat bashing?

Thanks DHK for the wacko conspiracy theory refresher - I'd forgotten about this meme. I couldn't tell if Cat13 was for or against a GOP POTUS bashing thread, but my statement was apolitical. I blame myself for letting "Pocahontas" dominate my cerebral cortex, but even after stopping and rebooting I negged on the acronym for Warner. That said, I did place the adjective "crude" where it belongs :). If the stable genius shoe fits, then own the s**thole. :lol:
