Charlie seemed to bring his pornstache game. I approve.
Had he worn a bolo tie I'd have been convinced it was a Turd Ferguson impression. :lol:

Soledad is certainly a cognate for "solitude." (And Witwe for "widow.")
I couldn't make the leap because the translated title was unfamiliar to me. The rest seemed entirely cognate-free.

I’m going on a Lindblad expedition to Svalbard soon so I was pretty pumped to see those clues. Easy FJ; nice game to watch.

I am prepared for pornstaches to return and will not be a curmudgeon. But I'll be glad when the current facial hair fad goes out of fashion, not for the looks, but just because I have disdain for the religions that impose beards and veils and head coverings. If your teachings are so damn good, why all the fashion and dietary rules? No offense intended to any devotees here or anywhere else but these restrictions are not entirely voluntary in many parts of the world to many many people, especially the females.
Amen. I'm particularly put off by the women wearing beards. (...grouse, grouse, grouse....)

Surprised "Benedict" didn't get a BMS, though I can see the argument why it wouldn't need it (there's only been one since the Euro has been A Thing)
For at least the last few seasons, the ordinal number hasn't been required unless the question specifically asks for it.

"Birth of Venus" rings no bells for me.

:lol: "I probably shouldn't have eaten that packet of powdered gravy I found in the parking lot."
I would prefer not to.

37 R/6 W
Coryat: $28,400
DDs: 1/3 (Got fortitude, missed the other 2)
FJ!: :mrgreen:

My highest number of correct responses and coryat since I started keeping track. My 18th birthday is in a month :)

Ran Exotic Wildlife, Terms Of Endurement, and They Got The Memo.

:oops: brain fart on lab coat DD, completely missing the medical school part of the clue and guessing a tuxedo

I can thank last year's Spanish class for getting the $200 in Found In Translation

Somehow came up with FJ!

LT: Austria-Hungary
