Re: Friday, March 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's a chestnut that FDR was the first president to appear on television, so I figured he must be the trap response and went one president later. I unfortunately reasoned the reverse way, thinking that Truman was probably the negbait since TV was pretty well established in households by the late fo...

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? I'd think so. I'd also imagine that "commissioning" would be an acceptable alternative response for "pro...

It took me a beat to come up with the literal translation of “cul-de-sac” and I needed another minute to come up with “Bag End” The pangolin is one of my favorite animals! And it may not be well known, but pangolins can be found on Cul de Sac.... https://www.gocomics.com/culdesac/2010/09/13 https:/...

I've always understood the rule on Jeopardy to be that you are not penalized if you fix a grammatical error for example by changing Singin to singing but you are in trouble if you drop a g, such as changing Waiting for Godot to Waitin' for Godot. Heaven Help me if I ever get on the show and Final J...

Have not seen Moana, and even though it occurred to me I dismissed it thinking it was an older movie.

The director of the 2017 film Thor: Ragnarok , Taika Waititi, is half Maori, not Tahitian. New Zealand is one-third the width of the Pacific away from Tahiti (seven and a half hours by air), but since it's still probably the closest major land mass, and Maori and Tahitians had common Polynesian anc...

OK, judges: granting that "fallacious" was the desired response, I came up with "specious". Close enough?

Contestants can hear the airdate when Johnny reads the slate. I think they are given the air dates when they get the call because I know Wheel does that. When I got the call, Lauri said the episodes taped on my day would air "the week of XXX". Since the exact show is a random draw on taping day, th...

I can understand the hesitancy with the DD3 bet - I don't know how much time they give you to think up DD wagers, but I can't imagine they give you a full minute and give you a piece of paper and a Sharpie to come up with your wager for a DD bet, even if it is the last clue of the game.
