    I was trying to get Megan Clair was on auditions to the show will earn a spot for champion to win a lot of money, Maggie Speak said. It was on the news.

    I think the only other choice besides Dodgson in the 19th Century would have been Edward Lear (1812-1888), the nonsense verse guy and artist, but he wasn’t at Oxford nor a mathematician. Has there ever been a question on Edward Lear? I never used Cliff Notes for the simple reason they didn’t exist when I went to school. Yes, sometimes we actually had to read the book(!) How soon we have forgotten who Fred Mertz was. On the other hand, we had 3 teachers last week who couldn’t identify Lake Huron(?) Eleven years ago I stayed overnight at Parry Sound on Georgian Bay, and the next day visited the Stephen Leacock Home and Museum in Orillia on Old Brewery Bay. I love those names.

      @Taiwan Bill, there was an Edward Lear clue in the 3/31/2017 match that was worth $400 in the category European Artists. ” Although best known for his nonsense poems, such as “The Jumblies”, he was an accomplished landscape painter”

      Lear was born the same year as Charles Dickens and Robert Browning. Lear and Browning were both born in May.

    Excellent play by Jon and I still hope he will get into the toc if he wins tomorrow. he could get closer to Hunter appler’s lead since he is also an attorney. I would love to see those two face off later on. Alice in Wonderland had a disney movie based on the book.Wasn’t there a live action movie of alice in wonderland and a tv series called Adventures in Wonderland?

      Wouldn’t it be cool if FJ was about the legal system tomorrow? Or at least a category. LOL!!

    Well, looks like I was too optimistic on FJ, but congrats to Jon on getting it and his big win today. Well done in astronomy and lakes, and he also nailed some good ones in art and that rebound in Arlington.

    Still, despite his early lead, Megan was keeping up pretty good there till Jon saddled up and rode off with the game :)

    Here’s the old FJ from 4/10/2013 — His works include “Sylvie and Bruno,” “Phantasmagoria and Other Poems” & “Algebraic Formulae and Rules”. The category was 19th Century Authors so they didn’t narrow it down to Britain that time and it produced one response of Jules Verne. Oscar Wilde and Lord Byron were the other 2.

    Jon’s wager on the second DD in DJ! would have kept the game from being a lock if he was wrong. He got the clue right and got FJ! when the other two players didn’t so it didn’t matter in the end, 41/61 here. THey completed the full DJ! board despite the players not saving the all-video category for last. Many times not saving such a category for last means all 30 clues in the round do not get played. The category not being in the first round helped to get all 61 clues seen on this episode.
