    Fewer letters to type. 🙂

    Drunk History

    Taran and Colin are so good. I was living in San Pedro at the time of Lawnchair Larry, but I don't remember that story. You'd think it would be pretty big. I'm probably just forgetting. Old age and all.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    For the longest time I couldn't believe that 'segue' was pronounced 'segway.' I always thought it should be longer. I hope you don't mind, but you got me curious, so I looked it up. If I typed this correctly... For Queen Victoria (Jun 20, 1837 - Jan 22, 1901) there were 17 Presidents (Cleveland twice): Van Buren – Mar 4, 1837 – Mar 4, 1841 Harrison – Mar 4, 1841 – Apr 4, 1841 Tyler – Apr 4, 1841 – Mar 4, 1845 Polk – Mar 4, 1845 – Mar 4, 1849 Taylor – Mar 4, 1849 – Jul 9, 1850 Fillmore – Jul 9, 1850 – Mar 4, 1853 Pierce – Mar 4, 1853 – Mar 4, 1857 Buchanan – Mar 4, 1857 – Mar 4, 1861 Lincoln – Mar 4, 1861 – April 15, 1865 Johnson – Apr 15, 1865 – Mar 4, 1869 Grant – Mar 4, 1869 – Mar 4, 1877 Hayes – Mar 4, 1877 – Mar 4, 1881 Garfield – Mar 4, 1881 – Sep 19, 1881 Arthur – Sep 19, 1881 – Mar 4, 1885 Cleveland – Mar 4, 1885 – Mar 4, 1889 Harrison – Mar 4, 1889 – Mar 4, 1893 Cleveland – Mar 4, 1893 – Mar 4, 1897 McKinley – Mar 4, 1897 – Sep 14, 1901 For Elizabeth II (Feb 6, 1952 – present) there were 13 Presidents (so far): Truman – Apr 12, 1945 – Jan 20, 1953 Eisenhower – Jan 20, 1953 – Jan 20, 1961 Kennedy – Jan 20, 1961 – Nov 22, 1963 Johnson – Nov 22, 1963 – Jan 20, 1969 Nixon – Jan 20, 1969 – Aug 9, 1974 Ford – Aug 9, 1974 – Jan 20, 1977 Carter – Jan 20, 1977 – Jan 20, 1981 Reagan – Jan 20, 1981 – Jan 20, 1989 Bush – Jan 20, 1989 – Jan 20, 1993 Clinton – Jan 20, 1993 – Jan 20, 2001 Bush (jr) – Jan 20, 2001 – Jan 20, 2009 Obama – Jan 20, 2009 – Jan 20, 2017 Trump – Jan 20, 2017 – present

    No it wasn't. It was Salem. (Sorry. Couldn't resist.) I hope we all get 5/5 FJs this week. I never thought about it, but I bet koalas have great breath.

    He gives me that vibe on Weekend Update, too.

    S06.E15: Impeachment

    I noted that one, too. Excellent. Great show about impeachment. Frankly, I don't watch the evening news, or local news, so I wonder how many news shows have explained what impeachment actually is. Like Pelosi said, it's not vote and bye bye birdie. Sadly, many Americans (most?) think that's what it is, as if the Democrats want just to have a vote to boot him out without a hearing. And, yes, so many Americans think the Mueller Report really said Trump did nothing wrong. Arg. Impeachment employed as effective hospice care. Hee. I hope Duncan's wife takes him down. They both deserve to go down. Love John referring to him as a blue ribbon dingdong dipshit. I do love the name Eggburt, and also a book called Why Do Bad Men Name Bunnies Good.

    Match Game

    I never thought of rock the cradle. That's another good one. Here's an article from the LA Times interviewing Alec about Match Game and other stuff.

    Match Game

    Wow, lucky you! That's never happened to me, which is why I hate watching shows on network sites. I also thought about Rock the Casbah, but I went with Rock the Boat... and had the song in my head afterwards. "Rock the boat -- Don't rock the boat, baby -- Rock the boat -- Don't tip the boat over -- Rock the boat... " I thought Kermit the Frog was THE answer, so I was surprised by all the other answers. I also thought Apple iPhone was THE answer. I guess I'm all alone. I know, as Jason said, they're encouraged to go low, but that really bugs me. I mean, I thought Alex Baldwin was known for his hairy chest. I don't know how to play Words With Friends. My answer was "F U." I didn't care for the two women celebrities who were not Constance Zimmer. At least we got a warning from the one that she would be going blue as much as possible. And I still hate the looooooooooong pause the show does before revealing the answer in the Super Match.

    I wasn't paying attention at the beginning of the sign language clue, but when I saw "manualist" I thought of this guy who called himself a manualist. With this in mind, I was trying to think how to answer when I noticed Gaulladet and figured this DD was actually easier than I thought.

    Baskets

    I can't remember if Penelope said why she came back to California.

    Baskets

    I'm not a fan of Penelope either. Maybe if a different actress played her she'd be more tolerable. I don't mind a character that's supposed to be unlikable, but she just really grates. Loved all the stuff with the cats, particularly when Ken and Christine were voicing the cats talking to each other. I got a big chuckle out of Chip telling Martha's mom (wearing those big optometrist sunglasses, "Good luck with welding class."

    Yes, as Toothbrush said, it was probably the "Is God dead" comment that led Becky to Nietzsche. I was glad to see that EJ didn't do any cutesy-obnoxious stuff during the contestant intros. TSs I got were Pony, The Lovely Bones, and As I Lay Dying. I also got the DDs of Phnom Penh (though I don't know how) and sign language. For FJ I guessed polio. Oh well.

    Ugh, is what I said. If I keep telling myself he's just having a bit of fun maybe I'll be able to tolerate it. I got it from seeing the movie. Judy Dench was fantastic. Oh... right. I said gremlin -- I was actually picturing the gremlin on the wing in that Twilight Zone episode with William Shatner -- and I was so sure I didn't even try to come up with anything else. In addition to Iris, I got Lessing's blessings.

    Season Three Talk: FFwSB

    OMG, those leggings! Who designed those? I loved how Sam could barely keep it together when the designs that looked like a penis and a vagina were on screen. I really like the new correspondent. Penny?
