Francesco reminds me of Jose Canseco.
Ha! I immediately flashed on Weird Al in the I Lost on Jeopardy! video. Your comparison is more flattering and, as it turns out, more apt.
more flattering? i would rather be compared to weird al...canseco is not so well liked...dude is a steroid using, snitch, shooting off his finger, attention seeking douche

In fact it was exactly two weeks ago! I believe this is called "going in one ear and out the other." :)

I just had no idea what to even guess. There are like, four trillion countries in Africa and I see no way to noodle your way through this in 30 seconds unless you're inhumanly fast.
It would help to realize he clue specified that it was a country associated with (read "colonized by") Italy, which distinguishes it from about 3.9 trillion of the other countries. So there's that....

Aaaannnnddd….buh-bye to the one-time champ. Too bad, as I enjoyed her games.

Ran the categories: eponyms, eternal.

LT: morphine, Nietzsche, Inferno/Divine Comedy.

I saw the FJ category and started to pre-call. Got as far as Addis Ababa and stopped, thinking how far down that list of increasingly obscure capitals will the writers go? Probably not too far. Right again.

Just like Jupiter/Saturn/Uranus/Neptune, or which of Romeo and Juliet is Montague or Capulet, or which of AK/HI was the last state to join the union... I have seen these facts about a billion times and they WILL. NOT. STICK.
They don't stick to Uranus?

how many 2 word african capitals are there? i believe there are 3 others besides the answer to that final jeopardy clue
São Tomé, Cape Town, and Port Louis?
cape town isn't the national capital of south africa...turns out 2 others...i have never seen porto-novo in print...didn't realise it was a hyphenated word and not 2 words
You said "African capitals," not "African national capitals" (and does that mean that South Africa has no national capital, or that only the executive capital counts?).

And how does one learn of Porto-Novo without seeing it in print? I haven't gotten the impression that you've been to Benin. (I'd count it as two words anyway, even with the hyphen.)

the category was "2 word world capitals"....that suggests national capitals

i do a lot of my studying aurally...and that is how i learned the capital of benin

i have been to many places in the world...though benin was not one of them

hyphenated words count as 1 word according to a search i did earlier

Nice one, Kirk. I can't say Pretoria without singing it as the The Kinks' Victoria.

Okay, but you said "2 word African capitals" in your post (well, except for the capital A).

And Bloemfontein has shown up as a response in a J! category titled WORLD CAPITALS twice.
