Anderson Cooper + Kelly Donohue = Extended Credits roll again

The most important moment of the show was Anderson getting his shot at this:
Spoiler
The cool moment of the episode was seeing a game clip for the Stern sidekick clue.

Anderson gave an alternate response for the "slur" word response that might make zakharov a bit happier?

The FJ! category had me struggling for precalls as I had nothing better than Rome for the twins or prisoners in Sydney.

The FJ! clue had me connect all the dots to copy Kelly & Lyrka while Nick completed a nightmare appearance with only connecting two dots as a follow-up to the two missed DDs.

Kelly's Coryats are improving each game, so he may be getting on the buzzer with each dose of experience.

This game is a draw for the Weak Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "small." --Bob

Woo! Our biggest winner since John Focht. He stands at 279th on the all-time leaderboard at the moment. Will update the leaderboard whenever his run ends, or when he reaches 4 games.

That alternative was Roma. Would they also accept Romany? I feel safer sticking with the slur. Erm... no offense?

It should have been. There's a whole song about why.

"now known as this city" makes Istanbul the only correct option.

I actually wrote down "What is Istanbul, not Constantinople?" as a joke response. Think they'd have taken it?

You mean, "If you left your girl in Constantinople, she'll be waiting in...."?

Good, solid win by the champ. Many congrats and all props.

My long-ago good friend explained to me that in the music conservatory (she was a graduate) they had lots of "in" jokes most likely to be "gotten" by musicians. One of them:

What's the difference between a violin and a viola?

Answer 1: A violin burns longer.

Answer B: A violin holds more beer.

She could go on like that all night, esp. if she had a violin-full of beer. Ah, good times.

Of course. The added information is correct so you don't get penalized.

I don’t see why not.

I also figured this one out.

I'm pretty sure you could have said "What is Istanbul, and not a football jersey stuffed with squirrel fur and chocolate chip pancakes?" and it would be acceptable.
