If it had actually been French and the correct response, you would have complained that you considered it but rejected it because it didn't have a pile of silent consonants.

Oh, I was going to mention, hebdo is short for hebdomodal, which is in fact an English word as well (meaning the same thing). The "hebdo" root is the same as the "hept" of "heptathlon," meaning seven.

The innominate situation was a factor again today. The male Challenger desperately needed to get Within 50% of the Champs total. He was frustrated by the female Challenger repeatedly eating his lunch. Even though she was not in a position to win. If the female Challenger had stayed clam on that $12 final question and the male Challenger had gotten it, he could have prevented a runaway. As it turned out, it wouldn't have mattered because he didn't know that very easy final; none of the contestants did.

Really should have pronounced it "Oscuh."

And "Victuh."

David looks just like Fred Armisen.

Given the way he pronounced "Charlie Hebdo," I think David's going to start off with "From the French."

I knew the Cisco Kid. I served with the Cisco Kid. The Cisco Kid was a friend of mine...

Yup.

As my edition of Mostly Harmless calls it, "The increasingly inaccurately-named Hitchhiker's Trilogy."

Joe Hill never died, though the GOP has been doing its damndest to kill him for decades.

Coryat: $47,600

J: 25R4W1P. Got DD. 5/5 in African Capitals, Phonetic Alphabet, and Between the World Wars. 4/5 in Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. 2/5 in Song Title.

DJ: 27R3P. Got both DDs. 5/5 in Fiction, From the French, Some Science, Love & Marriage, and Madliberals. 2/5 in Comic (Got "Photon" and "Sauron," the two you could get while knowing jack shit about the category).

FJ: Got it just in the nick of time.

LT: bistro

In France the word is spelled bistrot.

Anyone else think David kind of looks like (present day) Jeff Goldblum?

Maybe it's my intensified interest in WWTBAM, but this was an instaget. I can see why people might not have gotten it, but the TS surprised me.
It was an instaget for me because I was on BAM in 2000 with Regis.

I wonder if
SpoilerShow
the reason Steve Oppenheim is playing next Friday is because they were trying to have John and he on separate episodes, but a Jacob/Blish event happened.
Did they know each other beforehand?
Now I'm less sure about that than I had been. I didn't realize that Presloid was old enough to be someone I faced off against in high school, as opposed to someone who participated in tournaments that I volunteered at.
