Four elephants standing facing outward on a circular thing, yes?

This season has been very feast/famine for me, as I've gotten 6, 0, 2, 5, 1 right answers so far.

I want to luhbahguh babum gum (Leee), Wednesday, 11 November 2020 18:28 (three years ago) link

3 and 2 so far; basically getting 3-4 questions right every day

Four Seasons Total Manscaping (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 11 November 2020 18:39 (three years ago) link

Ohhhhh, I was 100% thinking of that Laos flag.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Wednesday, 11 November 2020 20:41 (three years ago) link

Hope you all got Whale, one way or another

An Andalusian Do-rag (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 12 November 2020 14:36 (three years ago) link

not a clue on that one

Guayaquil (eephus!), Thursday, 12 November 2020 19:43 (three years ago) link

I totally got it due to "Hobo Humpin' Slobo Babe" which means I got 2 questions in 1 day due to teenaged watching of Beavis & Butthead.

justfanoe (Greg Fanoe), Thursday, 12 November 2020 21:40 (three years ago) link

whale was a random guess because the only WHA animal team i could think of was hartford

Kompakt Total Landscaping (Will M.), Thursday, 12 November 2020 21:43 (three years ago) link

im having an awful season defensively & strength of schedule-wise; last in correct answers against, DE at .636 (aside from a couple of bad seasons i'm usually around .780)... really hope i regress very soon

Kompakt Total Landscaping (Will M.), Thursday, 12 November 2020 21:48 (three years ago) link

WAIT were they called the Whalers because WHAlers???

Guayaquil (eephus!), Thursday, 12 November 2020 21:57 (three years ago) link

oh damn that never even occurred to me

Kompakt Total Landscaping (Will M.), Thursday, 12 November 2020 22:16 (three years ago) link

If I'd thought of that I might have gotten the question right

Guayaquil (eephus!), Thursday, 12 November 2020 22:19 (three years ago) link

if you're not a universal monsters nerd, james whale is memorable for being the subject of the film Gods and Monsters with Ian McKellen and Brendan Fraser in one of his last films before he went action hero

Four Seasons Total Manscaping (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 12 November 2020 22:32 (three years ago) link

G&M is exactly how I got it.

I want to luhbahguh babum gum (Leee), Thursday, 12 November 2020 22:39 (three years ago) link

Dare I praise na for reaching the top of our rundle?

I want to luhbahguh babum gum (Leee), Friday, 13 November 2020 16:46 (three years ago) link

i don't really feel like i'm dominating. it's early days yet and i'll likely fall back into the middle of the group before season ends

na (NA), Friday, 13 November 2020 19:01 (three years ago) link

Part of me wants to comment upon my experience working on the 60s Music ML now that it is over and I have some distance from it but maybe I should just let it pass.

An Andalusian Do-rag (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 16 November 2020 19:23 (three years ago) link

My first 9/6 yesterday!

Four Seasons Total Manscaping (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 17 November 2020 16:04 (three years ago) link

hey i got 9/6 yesterday too. still pretty rare for me.

na (NA), Tuesday, 17 November 2020 16:15 (three years ago) link

there's always a 9/6 in the banana stand

Four Seasons Total Manscaping (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 17 November 2020 16:34 (three years ago) link

lol

Indieland Phil and Indieland Don (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 17 November 2020 16:38 (three years ago) link

That's the only one I missed.

Indieland Phil and Indieland Don (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 17 November 2020 16:38 (three years ago) link

9(6) yesterday for me! not counting minileagues obv, this is only my third sixpack in 11 seasons (I've had a 9(5) as well). yaaaaaay!

Kompakt Total Landscaping (Will M.), Wednesday, 18 November 2020 19:10 (three years ago) link

i lost on a 3/3 vs 7/3 yesterday, annoyedface.emoji

Four Seasons Total Manscaping (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 18 November 2020 19:24 (three years ago) link

I was gifted a 3 on the Eswatini question even though I made explicit mention of it in the Djibouti thread.

I want to luhbahguh babum gum (Leee), Wednesday, 18 November 2020 19:25 (three years ago) link

Which was enough to give me a tie instead of a loss.

I want to luhbahguh babum gum (Leee), Wednesday, 18 November 2020 19:25 (three years ago) link

how many days in a row can I get 5 out of 6 and lose I ask you

Guayaquil (eephus!), Thursday, 19 November 2020 14:51 (three years ago) link

It's happened to me the last two days!

(Annoyed at myself because I literally typed in Raphael and then erased it and put Donizetti, who isn't even an artist.)

jaymc, Thursday, 19 November 2020 15:02 (three years ago) link

Never delete your first answer and replace it with something less famous is the lesson o keep learning over and over and not remembering somehow

is right unfortunately (silby), Thursday, 19 November 2020 15:05 (three years ago) link

Yup. I think changing the answer is OK if there is actual logic behind it, but not because "this kinda sounds right?"

jaymc, Thursday, 19 November 2020 15:49 (three years ago) link

yeah, i did that with raphael/michaelangelo

Four Seasons Total Manscaping (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 19 November 2020 15:49 (three years ago) link

raphael is my stock answer for anything involving italian renaissance painting; finally it paid off

mookieproof, Thursday, 19 November 2020 15:57 (three years ago) link

cowabunga dude

Four Seasons Total Manscaping (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 19 November 2020 18:57 (three years ago) link

btw is there some reason those prizes are specific to the newlywed game? idgi

mookieproof, Friday, 20 November 2020 23:11 (three years ago) link

yeah that was terrible. also i voted for The Price Is Right, which is correct.

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Friday, 20 November 2020 23:16 (three years ago) link

I don't think the prizes themselves are notable. The clue was the phrase "special prizes chosen just for the winners."

I was all set to submit "The Price Is Right," but that phrase kept nagging at me, and "The Newlywed Game" came to mind. It was a guess, but it turned out to be a good one.

jaymc, Friday, 20 November 2020 23:17 (three years ago) link

Aargh

Indieland Phil and Indieland Don (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 21 November 2020 00:08 (three years ago) link

ya boy is like last in his E division, but we carry on

unashamed and trash (Unctious), Saturday, 21 November 2020 01:05 (three years ago) link

Okay, I will spill the beans. It was a lot of work but I really enjoyed helping write the 60s Music recaps.

Indieland Phil and Indieland Don (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 21 November 2020 02:18 (three years ago) link

shocking beans

mookieproof, Saturday, 21 November 2020 02:45 (three years ago) link

James Redd in Recap Shockah

Indieland Phil and Indieland Don (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 21 November 2020 03:15 (three years ago) link

I said "The Price is Right" but the crucial clue is that it was an all-expenses paid cruise FOR TWO, i.e. the couple. Good question!

Guayaquil (eephus!), Saturday, 21 November 2020 03:16 (three years ago) link

Learned League really makes you realize you don't know what other people know. I thought Flannery O'Connor was a gimme but wrestled with mimosa; I got them both but I really wasn't sure about mimosa. And like 90% of people got that right!

Guayaquil (eephus!), Saturday, 21 November 2020 03:17 (three years ago) link

Yes, defense is a mug’s game. I thought everyone would get the game show except me, hah. Also thought Fatima might be easy but was hoping more people would fall into the Leila trap.

Indieland Phil and Indieland Don (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 21 November 2020 03:22 (three years ago) link

Think people who are really into it maybe have a better idea of what is a “Pavlov” or things like that.

Indieland Phil and Indieland Don (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 21 November 2020 03:25 (three years ago) link

an all-expenses paid cruise FOR TWO

idk, it's not like showcase showdowns suggested you go on cruises or live on a camping trailer by yourself? feel like there was a general assumption that all game show contestants were married

if the newlywed game adjusted its prizes according to whether it thought the winners would better appreciate a BC cruise or camper, then okay i had no idea

mookieproof, Saturday, 21 November 2020 04:12 (three years ago) link

Yeah, it wasn’t quite enough to hang one’s hat on. There is a thing about looking for those kind of clues or ins, but this one was a little too, um, subtle.

Indieland Phil and Indieland Don (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 21 November 2020 04:22 (three years ago) link

I put Canadian Jeopardy

is right unfortunately (silby), Saturday, 21 November 2020 04:28 (three years ago) link

Lol
