    On his show last Saturday, Svengoolie said to be sure to watch Jeopardy Thursday for “a special laugh for Sven fans” in the DJ category Characters in Books.

    I thought, “Don’t tell me it’ll be about the hypnotist in ‘Trilby’ and someone will say ‘Svengoolie’!”

    And that’s just what happened. I didn’t see it. Did people laugh? Did Trebek seem to know who Svengoolie is, or did he think it was just a mispronunciation?

      @Tom, There wasn’t any laughter from the audience. After Grant gave the right answer, Trebek did a Dracula-like: “I am Svengali… not goolie.” So he didn’t really give any indication that he knew Svengoolie and neither did my closed captioning. LOL. I turned it on and they had it as Svenguli.

      P.S. Svengoolie tweeted a video clip of the clue. LINK

      I forgot to mention that Gretchen giggled at Trebek’s impression but that’s cut off in Sven’s video.

    That rhyming Category was so funny. I nearly fell to the ground laughing at the response Steve gave on the final clue in that category. Do you remember what that response was, VJ?

    • VJ says:

      @Lou, I thought that category was funny, too, and put it in the extra clues. The answer to that last one was Virgo Pergo.

    That parrot in the “A” for the Win category didn’t look too colorful to me. LOL. The way that clue was worded, you were supposed to figure out that it had a continent and a color in its name, even though it wasn’t a very colorful color.

      I hope we FINALLY hope tomorrow will be the first Friday FJ correct response by the leader.

      • VJ says:

        I hope so too, Dalton. Wasn’t this the first game this week where the leader didn’t get FJ? I thought that must mean Dalton will get his wish and the leader will get it tomorrow.
