Re: TPH poll for week of 6/1

Missed hot rollers (no idea), Nevada (clammed, but guessed California) and tax (couldn’t come up with anything I was confident in).

I’m most surprised that House managers is polling so low.

Re: RIP Herb Stempel

Can you elaborate on the significance of this a little? Was there a problem of a domineering sponsor dictating what should happen on the show? Yes, that was a big part of what led to the scandals -- the sponsor putting direct pressure on the producers. Did they dislike Stempel specifically? The rat...

The corrects were all instagets or close enough. I knew Wednesday’s was the Percy Jackson guy, but never bothered to commit Riordan’s name to memory.

Same with Sinclair Lewis, much more egregious.

Re: Friday, April 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wasn’t paying too much attention to the scores when DD3 came up, but looking back now...ye gods. Might have legitimately cost himself $100k with that wager.

England + engine + famous duo = quick get for me. Finally had a decent night after a miserable week.

Couldn’t get my brain in gear for whatever reason, and the disjointed play didn’t help. +1 looking for a ruling on idiom. With scores so low, if I’m Ben I’m YOLOing it on FJ. I guess he thought...

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

Not even the slightest bit of a WAG on FJ! I pored over this clue for a good five minutes and nothing stuck out as a TOM at all. What even WAS the tipoff, anyway?! You needed to make the connection that her grandmother’s last name was also the last name of the protagonist in To Kill a Mockingbird .

Hearst for Friday. Had to think a minute for Wednesday, but realized AB was too far west to border Nunavut.

Didn’t know the miniskirt-Mini Cooper connection previously, but seemed like a reasonable guess.
