No guess on martinet though I have come across the word previously
No experience with the Heller work
Fogy as I have come across the 4-letter spelling previously. (Probably a crossword puzzle)

No guess, Messi, Vatican City

Monday and Friday I had trouble coming up with anything. Both correct answers were "Oh, of course" moments (along with "1979, genius" Friday).

Never read/seen Catch-22.
I've only ever seen "fogey."
Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaut of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong?

Only seen it spelled "fogey", but convinced myself it must be right anyway.

That damn Instagream FJ still annoys me.

Had "Ronaldo," was going to count it as incorrect since I was thinking of the wrong Ronaldo -- but the judges accepted it on stage so I'm going to take it.

Gotta keep brushing up on geography and capitals.

Read Catch-22, saw the movie in the theater, have the DVD on the shelf. Good movie, though the book reads MUCH funnier than the movie plays. For some reason, lines in the book that leave me gasping for breath elicit grins and chuckles when said by an actor.

Have described myself as an old fart many times. But I don't consider myself a fogy. Or a fogey. Or a fogie.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

Yay, my first perfect FJ week in over a year :mrgreen:

It was quite the trip watching the Goat episodes first, then the regular ones, each night. Felt like a horse stepping down in class. Went from feeling dumb to feeling smart lol.

Saw the original Catch-22, but I can't seem to recall any of it.

Got 'fogy' even though I initially doubted myself because of the five letter variant, but...WECIB?

Couldn't come up with any credible guess for the 1960 novel question; guessed LeBron for the Tuesday question because he's an athlete I associate with Instagram.

Lost a long post. Damn it.

:( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen:
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I wasn't sure how to answer regarding Monday's FJ, because I feel I did solve it correctly; I just didn't give the right answer. I was very proud to have connected "rational mind" to "clockwork orange" and my pride was scarcely diminished by the twelve hours it took me to get there. Within the 30 seconds, the best I could manage was "Looking out for #1", though i was pretty sure it was the wrong decade and the wrong type of book.

"Photographic" on Thursday; I just didn't think of fingerprints. Though 1892 may seem fairly well into the history of photography, I don't know when the first important "action shots" were taken, rather than the old slow-exposure portraits or battlefield aftermaths that made Mathew Brady's name.

I was lucky to pick Ronaldo over Messi, though the clue did have me looking for a soccer player from Latin America. I didn't know Ronaldo's first name, but I knew that he had one. Maybe i'd have added "Sr." in front for safety.

"Dendrochronology" would fit into a double dactyl ("higgledy-piggledy...") verse, so it's a word I keep in mind, though a good subject to combine it with has been elusive.

I have read and watched the circa-1970 movie of "Catch-22". Though I think the second world war lacks a clear international champion novel to compare to "All Quiet on the Western Front" for WWI, for America's candidate I think its only rival is Slaughterhouse-Five.

I think I'd eventually have rung in for "fogy", assuming the old neurons could have bridged the synapses in time. But that's very iffish.
I'm smart and I want respect.

Mark, thank you for the last "fogey" option on this poll. I never could have gotten this right because I have always seen it as "fogey" and never as "fogy". "Fogy" doesn't even look like a word to me. It looks like a 5-year-old's misspelling of "foggy".

My only excuse for missing Iran is that I was trying to play a free FleetWit race that started at 7:25, and I didn't finish before FJ, so I wasn't devoting my full attention to it. (This happened during the first GOAT FJ too, but I got that one right.) I have less compunction about missing Ronaldo; for some reason Selena Gomez's name led me to Rafael Nadal.

I got fogy; I play the game Puzzly Words extensively and I've seen that spelling there. (The same made it possible for me to get "boccie" in that I BEFORE E, AFTER C category almost a year ago.)

I checked the box for Catch-22 exposure even though I've only seen it as a stage play.

I mentioned it in Monday's thread, but I was stuck on The Feminine Mystique for a good while till I reminded myself of the category and clearer heads prevailed. It would have sucked to miss that, since I've read Catch-22 at least twice.

No guess Monday. Somehow never seen the movie or read the book.
Messi on Tuesday

Always thought fogey was spelled with an e. Can't ever remember seeing the other spelling.
