Yeah, it's not on my NatGeo wall map of the world.

Wasn't going to get FJ ever-geography was never my strong point, and I thought it was clumsily worded as well.
I'm more amazed by the wagering in FJ. That. Was. Interesting.

There’s been talk recently of recognizing Zealandia as an “8th continent,” so I went with that.
Me too.

Ended up with Antarctica, counted the letters wrong, concentrated on the dry land vs. non-dry land (ice, iow) part of the clue and thought they were being clever with the phrasing. Oops.

Even if I had managed to get clear of thinking I'd deciphered the clue, I would not have come up with Polynesia. I think of it as a region made of independent island nations and colonies, not a collective entity.

So count me as a FJ whiff. I thought it was one of the hardest FJs in years, FWIW. The rest was pretty accessible. Had several Lach trash answers.
Pending...

I initially had Antarctica for the same reason until I recounted. Then I settled on Indonesia because of the number of letters and to have something, althought the only thing I was confident on was that it didn't otherwise fit the clue.

But the real reason I'm linking this is the fanart in the comments regarding the incorrect Garfield response...

I didn't remember his name either. I said, "It's the one who's not Maguire or Garfield."

Was stuck on Oceania for FJ. Since it was Canada Day, finally responded " What is Oceania eh"? to get to nine letters. :P

Add me to those who drifted around non-nine lettered places and ultimately had no clue.

My best guess was Antarctic (no -a).

I said Caribbean but I knew it didn't have as much area as the clue asked for. At least it had nine letters.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.
