    Good morning everyone! This is so well known that I just have to agree that the only way it won’t go 3/3 is if there’s less than 3 in FJ

    I’m real curious to see if anyone writes saint

      @ VJ – …and good afternoon to you! (And to all of the others, of course!) – You are SO right that this woman is so well-known, but the “3 for 3” has been a bit of a rarity lately, I’m just playing the hunch that someone might freeze or choke and come up w/ nothing. And when three AMAZING players like the “3 Monkeys” (hilarious!) from the ToC went 0 for 6 on two questions that, to most of us, seemed like slow-pitched soft balls, it’s just more proof that when the camera is rolling, it’s not always easy to come up w/ even the most obvious… Have a great night, y’all!

    If this is a fj I predict 3 correct or however many left standing. If there is a miss all I can say is OH MOTHER. lol

    Melania Trump?! No… she was born in Slovenia. Hillary?! Rats, wrong again. She’s was born in the same home town as Frank Gallagher. Hmmm – then it has to be that selfless, charitable & saintly women most recognized for being from Calcutta. Let’s go 2 for 3!

    Hey, if I got this one on my own right out of the chute, all 3 will get it too. 🙂
