    Well,that was kind of entertaining.That Penn is a riot of sorts — when he got out from behind the podium I thought he was gonna hug Alex.

    In the end, it was all good — 15 charities got some bread, and that’s something.

    Now back to normal people on Monday. :)

      Yeah, and hopefully the CotD will be back to normal too.

      Penn was one of my favorites in Celebrity Apprentice 12. He played for Opportunity Village back then, too, but he didn’t win.

      He’s lost over 100 lbs in the last 5-6 months!

        Now that’s a disappearing act!

        • VJ says:

          LOL! Good one :)

        • Cece says:

          That’s funny, Eric!

          I didn’t know of him; just saw how fat he was on the picture you provided on the link, VJ — wow!

          Off topic, I just read an article on fivethirtyeight website titled “Why Ken Jennings Jeopardy! streak is nearly impossible to break.”. LINK Interesting piece, in case you haven’t seen it yet.

          Thanks, Cece, I put in the link to the article.

        • Eric S says:

          Thank you ladies!
          I hope it read like: *best Groucho imitation*. Speaking of Groucho, a contestant said she bumped into him, literally, in NYC one day, and he said, “hey, why don’t you watch where I’m going!?!”.

        • Eric S says:

          Interesting take away from the link (attn: Doris): a too early of a buzzer gets a half-second delay.

        • VJ says:

          Read it again with your best Groucho imitation :) I love Groucho!!

    What a fitting fj clue imho. Bill Medley (one of the blue eyed soul brothers) will always be connected with Patrick Swayze musically in the movies Dirty Dancing and Ghost (Swayze’s biggest hit with Demi Moore) and then, of course, the similar book titles.

    Brought back some good memories for me.

    Back to Andrew on Monday! I hope.

      except that it is only Bobby Hatfield singing on “Unchained Melody. LINK. I saw the Righteous Brothers in Atlantic City 2 years before Bobby H died and he was fantastic, even though my all-time favorite “Unchained Melody” is by Vito & the Salutations — the fast doo wop version LINK :):)
      I know I am in the minority on that

    I guess nobody saw THAT coming (Strikeout). (Funny that Penn found the DD in “The Pen is mightier”..}
    And there IS a Santa Claus. Twice this year.

    I literally could not have been more
    I just wish the wrong response of Leonard Nimoy would have been given by Zachary Quinto

      Don’t you fret. These celebrities – or so they are called- were unpredictable.At least nobody came up with Wilhelm Tell or Greta Garbo… I think yesterday’s Prague/Vienna/Stockholm clue took the “Cake of the Week”!
      Yet Spock is rotating in his grave….
