Re: Wednesday, June 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm surprised a name that Hawley Smoot-esque hasn't shown up on my radar before...

Can I make a poll request? One question: Can you differentiate between reality and fantasy? Yes or no?
Doesn't matter. Insults are a terrible form of entertainment in either realm.

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

Because it's a performance that no one takes seriously? ...but it's still insults, and having them exist at all tells people that it's okay to insult each other. Which it's fucking not. There should be literally no reason for anyone to insult anyone ever. Am I insulting YOU for liking the show? No,...

I'm beginning to feel a bit insulted myself. You've made your point. We disagree.
Why do you think it's okay though?

Just couldn't connect the dots here. I kept thinking the other work was literary for some reason.

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

Maybe I should mention at this point that since I've been watching lately I fast forward through some of the preliminaries (it's easy to do), so I may have missed something appalling. But I doubt it... :) It's still plying insults as a valid form of entertainment. It doesn't matter that you get to ...

Have they bleeped words on the show? I doubt it. I detect a sense of humor in most of the repartee I've heard, though I haven't regularly watched earlier versions of the show.
Because saying "just kidding" after a filthy insult makes it right?

The tone and spirit are not at all close to The Weakest Link. For one thing the contestants have ample opportunity to fight back.
So it's okay to call someone a [bleep] if you can call them a [bleep] right back?

What joy is there in a show that hinges entirely on insults and trash talk?
Are we watching the same show?
You mean the show where the smartest people on earth bully the contestants before each round? Yeah, sounds like the same show to me.

I have the same question about The Weakest Link, btw.

Savannah is quite good. A bit stilted at times, but other than that she has a good presence.

Not even a WAG on FJ! I literally never would have considered animated movies.

Not even a guess. None of the words in the clue pointed me anywhere. Second day in a row where I have a name stored in my head, but literally zero facts to go along with it (other than "married to JFK", which is of exactly zero help here).

I noodled this one for a good give minutes and couldn't think of anything that fit. I've literally never heard it called a "coffee break" in my life.

:( :mrgreen: :( :( :(

I cycled through various words on Monday and Wednesday but couldn't land on either answer. "Bravo" didn't register as an Italian word to me.

Didn't know Leviathan referred to a specific work. I thought it was just another word for sea monsters in general.
