Yeah, ironic that someone who got all defensive about a mention of non-capitalization would himself go correct someone's usage error.

Grammar nazis Nazis always say more about themselves themselfs theirselves than whoever whomever they are calling out :).
Anyway, I'm pretty sure LSV meant to say he eats AND smokes salmon every day. Damn that auto-incorrect!

Had an uncle who heard that salmon was good for you, so he tried to smoke one. Too hard to keep it lit, so he went back to cigars.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

They had an Amuse-Bouche question this week for those who remember that we were talking about Amuse-Bouche on J!Board about a year ago.

I knew the Levi Jeans question on Thursday's episode straight away. Phonograph-1877, Telephone-1876, Levi Jeans-1873.

Ep. 18 - Softball Crew vs. Book Worms

It is a great episode and worth watching. GSN should be replaying it later tonight or early a.m. tomorrow.

Why?
SpoilerShow
The winning team knew the spread made with capers, anchovies & olives after the other team missed with hummus. I would have lost a side bet on that one getting a correct response. The winning team completed their victory by knowing the holiday with the most flowers sold.

The bonus round was even better with the first player getting two correct before missing. The second player missed her only question. That left the closer needing to take it off the sheet with five right for the money. Not all of the questions were gimmes.

I certainly agree that this was a great episode. I am so happy that the Book Worms won. It definitely makes up for the Classical Musicians' loss who I think were robbed(If only you were there with them. :lol: ).

Both teams missing the Karaoke question was I thought unexpected. Opera is Latin for works. Acapella is Italian for "Without Instruments".
The flowers question is also in the Battle of the Brains topic of QuizUp, so no way I was missing that.
Two questions about New Jersey in the Final. I got them both.

A cappella (two words, double p) is Italian for "in the manner of the chapel."

Yep, that was a big boo-boo on my part. I literally just watched a re-run of a University Challenge episode where they had a question that started, "Literally meaning "in the manner of the chapel"." One of the contenders got it right away.

"Without Instruments" is what I used to think it meant for quite a while. I posted this late at night when my head isn't as straight. But I did recently learn that it meant "the manner of the chapel" but I forgot it. I feel so ashamed. :oops:
But at least I didn't need to know that to get Karaoke. :D

I mean, it does mean that. It's just not Italian for it.

"The manner of the chapel" was to sing without instruments, so that's what the phrase means, even in Italian. "Without instruments" just isn't a literal translation of the Italian.

2/27 bonus round - :o

The first player got the first six right. He then missed. The second player missed. The third player missed. The pass was not used. Three chances for the $10,000 and they went 0/3. Ouch.
I don't it's been mentioned anywhere so I'll do it now. The host is Joey Fatone of NSYNC fame and more recent unmasked as,
