Tuesday said The Red Badge of Courage--wrong century! Friday the best I could do was "spiny anteater". I''m usually pretty good with Greek and Latin roots, but I've gone this long without ever realizing that melli->honey. Now that I think about it, I knew the Spanish word miel meant honey.

I got fireside chat wrong, and everyone was saying how easy it was. But I haven't heard of it and I couldn't have guessed it even on a good day, so there's not much I can do about that. Didn't like how that went.

These FJ clues are a bit too easy with the possible exception of the Napoleon clue, which I could see younger teens not having enough info to suss that one out, and honey badger, which relied on a YouTube video that would have been pretty inappropriate for these kids at the time it was released.

I don't know if the writers are concerned with having them be too difficult and the kids looking bad or what, but it seems like it would be a lot more interesting if these clues actually had some relevance.

Anyone among the 89 million who have watched this video would likely remember how bad-ass the honey badger is.
