Re: Friday, June 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

There was a professor I knew in college and the first time I met him in his office he asked me if I wanted to write about somebody's oeuvre and he pronounced it ehhhhhhhv complete with exaggerated French pursed lips. Pursed lips. I wanted to fall apart laughing but managed to suppress it. Under his ...

What a way to name check a band that nobody has thought of in 45 years.

Re: Thursday, June 10, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was big news that Roberts, who was originally nominated to replace O'Connor, would be serving on the Supreme Court with the Justice he clerked for, Rehnquist. This would be the first time a Justice would serve with one of his Clerks. Then Rehnquist died and Roberts's nomination to replace O'Conno...

The FJ! category had my precalls all over the place from Lulu, Little Eva, and Lesley Gore to Elvis, Motown and Cher. When my thoughts went to Barry Sadler and "The Ballad of the Green Berets" followed by William Shatner I figured it was time to stop early thinking. The way I was going I'm surprise...

Re: Friday, June 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I certainly know what you are talking about if you pronounce it with the ending as if it were spelled itis instead of itus, but I would never pronounce it that way myself. That has been my policy since I was corrected on the pronunciation by an audiologist who frankly reminded me very much of Mayim ...

Re: Tuesday, June 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The correction of "metal" to "heavy metal" was bizarre. The latter term is rarely used anymore. How to start a fight in a room full of music nerds: 'Metal and Heavy Metal [or Rock/Rock and Roll; Country/Country & Western; Punk/Punk Rock; Alternative/Alternative Rock/Alt Rock...] are different names...

Strangely my wife and I both thought of the contract negotiation angle and both said "cooling off." I didn't like it at all, but that I was all I could think of.
I have no idea what that has to do with food and drink.

She didn't. Between Blossom and the Big Bang Theory, she worked at the National Car Rental counter.

Was Julia the most awful contestant! Has she never seen the show before? Where did she get the idea that we she was supposed to interject after every answer and comment on her own Answers by saying "nice" or something equally banal? We viewers need to demand that they screen out people like that. An...

A lot of triple stumpers tonight. Nobody on that stage is TOC Worthy.

If Mayim is going to refer to herself as a neuroscientist on every episode, her hosting gig is going to get old very fast. I think it already is.

I knew about the Lemurs in Madagascar and the continent Theory, so I am done.

Celsius is a temperature scale for water. Kelvin is a temperature scale for atoms. Fahrenheit is a temperature scale for people.

The entire game turned on Ryan not knowing Salk and Sabin. Ask me a nuanced question about which one of them did what, and I will have to make a wag, but I definitely get them both if you're asking for them together.

A compendium of Alexisms

That FJ was a severe anticlimax. All the two leaders had to do was stand Pat and they both were in the semi-finals. There was really no reason for the man in the middle to do anything. And then he botched it with a British author. She did so well at mythology I'm surprised she never returned to it. ...
