Who is Norman Mailer? Because that's who I answered with instead of Norman Lear.
I said Norman Fell, so you have company in the Wrong Normans Club.

Got yew correct.
Remarked she resembled Pink, but clearly wasn't her, and had no guess.
Said Jefferson City, but would've easily switched to Cleveland if I'd thought of it.

Re: Thursday, April 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Limited knowledge of Shakespeare got me there. Could only think of 4 plays related to Italy, and could rule out the other 3 (Romeo and Juliet, Merchant of Venice, Two Gentleman of Verona), so settled on The Tempest. I'm sure he has a ton more in Italy but, oh well, I'll take the FJ get however I fin...

Re: Monday, April 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Posting for the first time to answer the second question: R2 is specifically an Astromech droid, while Threepio is not. That seems like an oddly specific detail that only superfans would know. Or anyone who has watched the movie ... I saw a couple of the Star Wars movies like 20 years ago, and even...

The only Z store I've heard of is Zappo's.
Anyone remember the Canadian discount store Zellers?

They were kind of sort of taken over by Target. Closed Zellers stores reopened as Targets after a delay of a year-and-a-half.
And then they closed after a minute and a half.

Re: Friday, March 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That goalie clue was bad. 1) They asked for a player, not a position and 2) not that we'll ever know, but I wonder if they would have taken "keeper" or "goalkeeper". The book's title uses "Goalie". I almost never hear them called a goalie. I wouldn't have taken goalkeeper. The clue specifically ask...

Easiest FJ in recent memory. I might be biased as a sports fan though. Nice to have an instaget in what has been my worst FJ month of the year. February has been kicking my butt :evil:

That definitely felt easier than normal. I'm generally around 32 every year and feel like I easily passed that. Although I'll have to wait to review the questions and answers to know for sure. Edit: 36! I believe that's my best ever, and totally choked under the pressure on a handful I should have ...

Re: FJs for the 1/6/20 week

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.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I've tried to memorize William Henry Harrison a billion times. But it's always "I know there was a president who only reigned for a month. I think it was a month. Maybe two months? A day? A year and a half? 47 days?" and my thought process just completely unravels from there before I can even get h...

Do you not know anything about any of them? Not the names, but maybe what their famous for? Hint, look at the years. Jefferson 1801-1809 (3rd President) Monroe 1817-1825 (5th President) William Henry Harrison 1841 (9th President) Lincoln 1861-1865 (16th President) Garfield 1881 (20th President) McK...

I suspect that contestant Alex is a ham radio operator, because her unusual bet of 1312, which host Alex even called unusual, left her with $88 after missing the extremely easy answer of Buenos Aires. 8 8 is the ham radio code for love and kisses, and especially affectionate way of signing off.

This was another garbage clue on a hyper-obscure fact. Why are we getting Liederkranz'd this week?
Hardly. One of the easier FJs on the year. Triple stumper was certainly surprising, but Vichy France is in no way obscure.
