Darn it, I was going to ask the judges here if "Who is some pig?" was acceptable! :lol:

Well, it is in the form of a question ...

I was actually going to Be Less Specific and reply "what is the other animal in the Charlotte's web story". My guess was pig with 80% confidence. I would never have picked Wilbur off a list of names, but it seems vaguely familiar from some other long lost J! question.

Essentially, "do you know what spinnerets are"?
Yep, this does seem to be the case, and unfortunately I did not.

This game had some howlers in it to say the least: Orpheus instead of Morpheus, Dubai when asked for a wealthy CAPITAL, Barbershop instead of just Shop, and then finishing it off with Pancho Villa for what I can only hope was supposed to be Sancho Panza. Yikes.
I understand the Little Barbershop of Horrors answer; it is a Simpsons reference, and Andre no doubt got them mixed up in the moment.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Spinneret --> spider --> Charlotte --> Wilbur.
Same. Surprised to see so many say "NHO spinnerets".

Oliver Twist :P

DVR issues so played from the Archive and found these boards a bit rough

It was painful to watch Andre play himself into Oblivion. Oddly enough, he didn't wind up in third place. The middle contestant managed to prevent a runaway, which oddly enough cost her $1,000. Real dollars.

I got final instantly and even heard the clue read in my head in the voice of Debbie Reynolds.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.
