Clue of the Day

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

We also need to be mindful that the first 11 words of our comments will show up on the homepage sidebar. So prefacing any hint with a short observation is the best way to go.

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!

An old category: These clues are from a category called “Darth Vader, D.D.S.” that might remind you a little of a more recent one with Tarzan reviewing books. This one was in the first round of the match played on 4/29/1999.

$200: “Use the floss, Luke”; & don’t whine about it–the ADA says you only have to do it this many times a day
$400: Referring to the sticky film that turns into tartar, Dr. Vader’s practice is called “The Empire Strikes” this
$600: Vader jokes that D.D.S. is “Dictator of the Dark Side” as well as “Doctor of Dental” this
$800: I wanted these “royal” tooth-shaped caps on my teeth; instead he gave me a mouth full of tiny black helmets
$1000: The force is strong with this one– the hard, outermost layer of the tooth show

    The big one would be my guess, too, but I wasn’t at all confident of it.

    I’m not giving up. lol. I’m predicting 3/3 or however many left standing.

    Hint: Frank Sinatra sang “They’ve got an awful lot of coffee in …”

      I’m on board with that prediction, too. This is the easiest and if all of them get it, that Wild Card list is gonna change.

      Yesterday, it cracked me up that they were calling the old timers “Snuff-takers.” You don’t hear that one anymore. lol

      • Jlane says:

        I hope I’m wrong, but I’m not as optimistic as you folks. Yes, the “coffee capital” does seem incredibly easy (and when you think of South America, isn’t that the country that more often than not is the one that comes to mind first?!) but I thought “WHIG PARTY” was a slam dunk last night, yet one of the players overthought that clue, as well…If you two are right, however, I’m w/ VJ… there will be some BIG TIME scores that could change the landscape for the finals!
