Clam chowder to have something (hasty pudding unfamiliar), no guesses Tuesday/Wednesday.

I have set a mousetrap.
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?

"Dish" + "Harvard" = hasty pudding
Clothespin instead of mousetrap. D'oh.
Three Cabelleros
"Title character with spinnarets" + secondary character = Wilbur the pig (and I included 'pig')
"15th century book" plus "cardinal's library" = Gutenberg Bible with 75% confidence

I have set several spring-powered mousetraps over the years. A lump of peanut butter wrapped with thread works extremely well. Needs the thread to make the mouse tug on the trigger; without it, the peanut butter can be licked and nibbled without triggering. Tried a live trap a couple of times. The only time it worked we found a dead mouse in it. May have given himself a heart attack frantically trying to escape?

Would have gotten Krebs if it was an FJ, but I needed a few seconds to dredge it up.

No guess Tuesday or Thursday, Three Little Pigs Wednesday.
Almost went with Mona Lisa Friday, but felt the year was too early

Fri - (blank) I kept thinking along the lines of manuscripts or codex

Zero idea what dusty synaptic crevice I managed to drag Krebs out of

Never set a mousetrap...and I wasn't willing to cheat by going to the garage and setting one before filling out the poll. I'm way too accident prone

Camera seemed plausible on Tuesday, and I never thought of mousetraps (though I have set them). I have heard and forgotten Volstead before.

Cameras and Douay Bible.

I'd have got Krebs had they mentioned Maynard G.

Never even played Mousetrap, though I've always wanted to. I started to read the play, but I misplaced the book.
I'm smart and I want respect.

Not familiar with Krebs. I thought Linus Pauling was a good guess there... :oops:

Same here. By the time the clue had ended, it had dragged a lot of other dusty terms out with Krebs -- phosphorylation, ADP, ATP, tricarboxylic acid. Things I hadn't needed to think about since Johnson was president.

Stop smirking, TFB. Lyndon. Not Andrew.

;). That's pretty good - I think I will start using pre-Johnson, inter-Johnson, and post-Johnson to fix historical events from now on :lol:.

That' quite a laundry list of chemistry to produce in regular J! time :). The question was over before I processed the clue, but I would not have gotten Kreb's. The timeline and apparent significance sent me to the Haber process which changed the world (by making ammonia production viable, ergo fertilizer and probably bombs :(), but seems to be in the 1900's (in the IJE - interJohnson era).
I think that "cycle" was the trigger word for the neural connections. And Krebs (eta 9 correction) fits George Eastman's definition of a memorable name. Good job by the contestant and the boardies that got it.

All I got this week was the Hasty Pudding clue. Sticky traps have supplanted old school snapping traps. Our outside mice are handled by Taserface and Emily, as well as our barn Owls and black snakes.

No apostrophe; his last name is Krebs.

Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.
