Clue of the Day

FYI, we don’t reveal the answer outright but hint at it. It is okay to give possible wrong answers.

Alert: The first 11 words of our comments will show up on the homepage sidebar so we should try to preface our hints with a short observation, on how hard or easy the clue is, for example or, perhaps, the weather.

Any comments with the actual answer will be deleted. All comments and predictions on the CotD posts are deleted after about a week, so be fearless!

Thursday Sporcle Challenge: We’re getting historical today– and modern, too. They give you a past event and you have to pick the current-day country it happened in.

    I’m not really a comic book guy, so my first take was a “badger”, BUT since I don’t recall any “Badger-ish” super heroes ever being depicted on the silver screen (although I truly believe Melissa McCarthy would make a GREAT one!), I was able to figure out the right answer fairly quickly. (I spent some time in Ann Arbor, MI, in my younger days, so maybe that helped.)
    I’m still shocked that only 1 out of 3 got last night’s FJ, I’ll go slightly conservative and predict 2 of 3 this evening…

    Happy 70th birthday to Stephen King! (He is missing from a seemingly comprehensive list that includes Danny Cox lol). Seriously though, thank you VJ for including the list and all of the other fringe benefits .

      Speaking of birthday lists, VJ, would you consider doing a birthday balloon for Bruce Springsteen, my if only husband lol. His birthday is on the 23rd.

    • VJ says:

      @Eric, Oh my, we can’t have that — I just put Mr. King on the list :)

      @Rhonda, sure will make your “if only husband” a balloon. That’s so cute. I’ve never had one — just “if only boyfriends.” Must be because I’m fikkle. lol

    This is a good clue for comic book fans as well as University of Michigan students, alumni, and fans. The W—– is its mascot.
