The next two players share The Mirror Image Consecutive Award for not only having identical scores but having scores that kept increasing by one as the weeks went on. Those astral-twin contestants are @peeayebee and @Trey.

😊 😊 

Thanks!

Seems a little strange, not checking in.  However, seeing these shows a second time around didn’t help me get a perfect FJ score! 😊

Nice! Me too! 5 plus 1*. The luck of the Irish I guess.

Oh, you went to Notre Dame too?

No, just born Irish. I don't have to pretend on St. Paddy's Day.

I'm glad the contest isn't going on during the tournament. I was 2/5 last week.

Started off the week a woeful 0/2, but recovered to reel off three straight! 3/5.

Week 37 (or is it week 35, since we didn't count the GOAT weeks): four of five with the asterisk for Swiss Family Robinson. On Monday, I got hung up on the Federalist Papers (it's an Alexander Hamilton thang), and could not come up with the Articles of Confederation.

WEEK 35 • May 18 — ONE asterisk *
171. America in the 1700s. “Every state shall always keep up a well regulated and disciplined militia, sufficiently armed and accoutred” is in No. 6 of these.
 * 172. Adventure Novels. In this novel the surname of a pastor, his wife & 4 sons is not given in the text; the title was meant to evoke a 1719 novel.  *
173. Classic TV Sitcoms. “I Love Lucy” used the French word “enceinte” in a 1952 episode title because CBS didn’t want this word used.
174. Military Slang. This word for high-ranking officials comes from a metal used in 19th century military insignia.
175. Ivy League Geography. This state borders 3 other states with Ivy League schools, but doesn’t have one itself.

I think I forgot week 34 which was 4/5.

Week 35 was also 4/5.

2/5. I'd like to say it was because I was out of practice (didn't watch the old tournaments), but that would be a lie.

The scores are in, folks, and Week 35 has claimed three winners. First award goes to the steady and unwaivering @Clanstarling for consistently achieving the same score for three weeks straight. We like players who are dependable. So, congratulations, and enjoy this high honor. This is YOUR week.

Our second and third winners are the brainiacs named @Driad and @Good Queen Jane, both of whom achieved the remarkable accomplishment of being the only players to score a perfect FIVE week. AND an asterisk. Well done, my very oh-so-smart friends. Bragging rights belong to both of you. Congrats.

I want to thank my father, my mother, my brothers and sisters, and my subconscious, which apparently knew more than my conscious mind, because I have no idea where I came up with at least three of the questions.

Well, I am known for my dependability. Though I'd like to be known for my brains...alas, some things are not meant to be.

WEEK 36 • May 25 — ONE asterisk *
176. U.S. Geography. Touching Canada at Boundary County, the northern part of this state’s Panhandle has been referred to as “The Chimney.”
177. 20th Century Metaphors. If it had physically existed, it would have stretched some 500 miles from the Baltic Sea to the Adriatic Sea.
178. Fairy Tales. A familiar chant in this fairy tale continues, “Be he alive or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread.”
179. Word Origins. P.T. Barnum, whose traveling shows carried musicians, coined this word that now represents something growing in popularity.
 *180. Presidential Libraries & Museums. Of the 15 U.S. Presidential Libraries or Museums, 3 are in this state, more than any other. *

3/5.  I was doing well until P. T. Barnum pointed me to the egress.

2/5. Damn my inevitable consistency! I guess I have to resign myself to being a smartass, rather than smart.

I would be aggrieved if someone took over my title of Biggest Dumbass.
