How exactly did Alex explain the "3 F Club" category? "chieF oF staFF" has four Fs. When they say things like "each correct response will have n Xs", have they ever meant "at least n Xs" rather than "exactly n Xs"?
good point

They have accepted responses of the "at least..." form on the grounds that the category wasn't clear, yes. Though that's not exactly what you're asking...

The second the FJ picture came up, I said, "Hey, that looks like a Dyson ball!" After hearing the clue, I said, "Huh, I guess it is!"

Too bad the Bangor homeboy couldn't pull it out, but a good game overall. :D

We own a Dyson ball vacuum, so FJ was instant for me.

When Archimedes was young and he got a good idea he would yell out "Eureka!"

When he got older and he got a good idea, he would yell out "Electrolux! No, that's not it. Hoover! No, that's not it. Kirby! No, that's not it..."

Richard Branson was my only guess on FJ even though I knew the segue is anything but a household device.

I thought Dyson Ball vacuum cleaners were fairly ubiquitous and was surprised this wasn't a triple get, but the clue appears to have played pretty tough here as well.
