Re: THE "J" EFFECT $1000 clue 12/5/19 [SPOILERS]

Correct for me. I’m a Canadian who always says sprinkles, but familiar with jimmies as a term. I thought they were interchangeable.

Bad week. No instagets, a couple of No Freaking Clues, and Wednesday was the only one where I had confidence in my answer. Almost said Austria on Friday.

What was the TOM for Stevie Nicks or Afghanistan in the top box? I saw "name that sounds like Rihanna" and guessed that, and then "total word salad abuot war that I couldn't make heads or tails of".
Rhiannon is a Fleetwood Mac song.

Golf - Tiger and Nicklaus are locks while good luck figuring out the third.
Hockey's kinds like that, too. Gretzky and Howe are 1 and 2, but who's 3? Orr? Richard? Lemieux?
That’s funny, I always had Howe fourth behind Gretzky, Orr and Lemieux.
