    From @chessiegal's Lobster Day link: "Lobsters can also regenerate limbs" So one could keep a tank of lobsters, cut off their hands/claws/legs and eat them, wait 'til they all grow back, then do it again. Eh. Reminds me of the old three-legged pig joke.

    S06.E12: Bastien Moreau: Conclusion

    Maybe they aren't even half sisters or even partly sisters. There's always that. I'm guessing Jennifer is with Agnes and the dogs now, and I haven't even seen the episode yet.

    S06.E12: Bastien Moreau: Conclusion

    I was gone last night and figured to watch this episode online. But reading here, I'm not sure I care enough to see how Red got out of prison. Although Dembe playing charades would be interesting, maybe the only good part?

    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    WEEK 28 — ONE asterisk 134. Best Picture Oscar Winners. These 2 films, recent back-to-back winners, both have 9 letter titles that end with the same 5 letters. 135. Countries of the World. Because its overseas empire was dwindling, Spain declared war on this much closer country across the water on October 22, 1859. 136. Royal Houses. Family name of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s brother Henry, whom his supporters called Henry IX of England. 137. American Authors. Alfred Hitchcock wrote, “it’s because I liked” his “stories so much that I began to make suspense films.” *138. Holidays & Observances. This day created in the U.S. in 1872 is observed in Florida & Louisiana in January, but Maine & Alaska hold it in May. *

    Since I've never gotten a day off of school or work for Arbor Day, I didn't have a clue what HOLIDAY FJ referred to. Okay, so it's an observance, but so is Pi Day and National Pancake Day. I briefly thought Fat Tuesday. Then had nothing. At least Pi and Pancake Days are talked about on national and local news; Arbor Day, never. So we observed Asterisk Day Friday. I think Lobster Day should be a real thing.

    The category was TV Doctors and they showed Kelly's picture. I don't remember the clue, but either "Bones" was in it or Trebek called him "Bones" after the TS. I'm guessing someone else here remembers better than I do. I never saw the appeal of Kirk, even though he was the "sex appeal" guy. Spock was my man. And yes, Picard over Riker!

    Lunchbox is the name of one of the guys on Bobby Bone's radio show.

    So crazy that McCormick was a TS (which I answered easily) since I was uploading a tractor magazine to the printer while watching the show. I also live near the headquarters of Deere & Co., and my house is in the middle of corn and bean fields. I'm tapping my fingers waiting for a tractor/farming category. Kate got a GFY! It's been a while since we've had a drink, if you ignore the drunken stupor from all the "genres" the other day. Jonathan is a mountain climber! Okay, so I'm liking this guy. Shared interests and all. Hilarious that DeForest Kelly was a TS. What's up with no Trekkies on this panel? I just got done watching the original ST, and Next Gen is on now. Love me some Picard. Hilarious No. 2 was the shout out to Doc Martin after we talked about that show here today. Marie Antoinette was a TS. I know I'm not THAT smart. Those players must have just been tired by the time that clue came up. I got a laugh from Rodan's The Thinker being a clue/answer since it is in the Jeopardy! opening credits every day; it even "dabbed" during the College Tournament. I got FJ instantly, which shocked me and now makes me nervous for tomorrow. I'm already having one of my best FJ weeks for ages, and if I get tomorrow, I'll tie my high FJ score ... which I've only gotten once in the half year we've been having the FJ contest. Oh, the PRESSURE! ETA: LOL at Trebek's (really poor) Hitchcock imitation when reading the FJ clue. At least it had absolutely no bearing on the answer, thank goodness.

    Let me translate that for you: Wrong answers are not good answers. And "long story short" means just that. Even my short story was too long. *cough*

    There was a show on PBS (when I had those channels!) about Van Gogh's ear, trying to determine if he really cut it off and if so, what part was left and what part came off. The answer was revealed in the final minutes of this 60-hour "investigation." The other 58 minutes was a bunch of jabber. Still, I watched the entire thing!

    Oh, I didn't notice that. The clue/answer for that category in J6 was not a B name. But maybe B names was the theme for the show category. None of the answers had much to do with dog names, they were just random questions, like left-overs, and writers are tired of using Pot Pourri as a category title. Another Doc Martin fan here, except I've lost my PBS channels. But Martin was getting pretty insufferable anyway so I don't miss him personally.

    Bean is the call name of GCH Kamand Full Of Beans @ Erinhill, the Sussex Spaniel that won the Sporting Group at Westminster this year. (Side note: He's a grandson of "Stump" that was the oldest dog to win Best in Show at WKC.) However, in all my years in dogs and knowing, quite literally, thousands of dogs, I've never heard of any other dog named Bean. So, to answer your question, no, it's not a common name and that was a stupid clue. My guess is one of the J! writers watched WKC and thought Bean was cool because he knows how to sit up. You know, like no other dog can do THAT. *sarcasm* Yes. Long story short, he was the heir to the throne, and the Jacobite Uprising (1745) in Scotland was the attempt to put him back on the throne. The bad part is, the uprising failed, all the Scottish clansmen were either killed on the battlefield of Culloden (1746) or banished to the wilds of America, it was made illegal to wear tartan and Scotland was put under British rule. The Bonnie Prince (Charles Edward Stuart) escaped to France, and that was the end of the House of Stuart. And why I'm in America and not Scotland, the land of my ancestors. And also why a lot of Scots are quite testy about being under British rule to this day; there even was a vote for independence a few years ago. (Failed.) We Scots can carry a grudge for centuries.

    I said Bergman Gooddorf for the answer of Bergdorf Goodman. I said "Moulin Rouge" for Lindsey's missed DD, then thought no, that movie was Nicole Kidman swinging on a swing and falling in love with a poet. Turns out that was correct, and also turns out Toulouse was in the movie too. I did find out there are five movies titled Moulin Rouge; three of them did not have a Toulouse in the cast. I laughed with everyone else when Jonathan answered "My Left Ear." Did anyone count how many times Trebek got to say "genre"? Or did you pass out drunk before the end of the game. I got "mattress pad thai." Maybe because I love me some pad thai. And I have a mattress pad. Good on Karen for going for broke on FJ. If she had been correct, she would be the new champ. When I saw the FJ category, I thought, "Oh, cr*p, big fail for me, and I'll have to read all those PTV posts from people who love British royalty." Then I saw the clue and couldn't believe it. Instaget. Thank you Diana Gabaldon. It's been 88 games since the last five-time champ. Congrats Lindsey on your $101,000-plus pay check. Well done. You're the best. Hope you make it to the TofC.
