Re: Wednesday, April 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Am I the only one who watches Late Night with Seth Meyers? The resemblance to writer and occasional segment host Jenny Hagel is uncanny:

Re: Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Had Delaware for FJ. If one does not consider the coast along Delaware Bay as "ocean" then it is not too far off the mark (apart from not matching an English county). NH was obvious in hindsight.

Re: TD 442 - 11 Assorted Questions (1-3 revealed)

I had a really hard time deciding how to score the answer of "beer". It didn't fit the theme, the category on the form did specify that there was a theme, and the respondent did get the bonus question right. Still, I didn't explicitly say that the answer had to fit the theme, so I decided to send h...

WHAT AN IDIOM! for $200: "It doesn't affect me adversely, so it's "No skin" from here".
Accepted response: "off my nose".
My response: "off my back".

I assume this is just a regional difference?

Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm not familiar with that warning but "prejudice" led strongly in one direction.

If the week is not too busy, I would not mind seeing a poll question along the lines of "I would not have gotten FJ! without the word "predudice" in the clue".

Another for Condoleeza Rice although I could not tie her to Chile and the timing just seemed wrong. Had to write something though.

Add me to the chorus of those who got FJ! but was wondering if there was something I was missing. Apart from all the blah blah blah that is almost the definition of missionary but it seemed way too easy so I considered other options - even a clarifier like Jesuit or Franciscan. Surely the contestant...

Had Cash before Alex finished with the question. Briefly considered Frank Zappa but decided I was thinking of his PMRC testimony and also that he was probably too obscure without a better TOM in the clue.

Re: Friday, February 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was absolutely INFURIATING me that they were letting Jon get away with the lack of "What is" as long as they did. Did they ever give someone that much leniency before? Like misspelling in the FJ! round the show has rules. You can botch phrasing in the J! round and Alex will remind you more than ...

Frustrating FJ for me as I instagot as far as "Not Churchill, the other guy" and then spent the next 29 seconds trying to remember his name. Classic brain freeze.

Re: Friday, February 7, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Literature is not an especially strong suit of mine but I loved this FJ category and clue. It took me a full 25 seconds following various trains of thought before I shouted out Jane Eyre in triumph, only to realize they were looking for the author. Got as far as Bronte before time ran out but doubt ...
