In a lightning round, we asked for something beginning with the letter I that you might buy in case you had a car accident or a health emergency… and someone said “icepack”. Which is not… wrong. It just indicates some unusual health priorities..
We asked about a three letter word and were looking for “LED”. One team came up with “LER”, and it fit all the criteria. We checked, and “LER” IS a word. It’s a personification of the sea in Irish mythology, and we gave them a point for it. They were technically right, even though we’re pretty sure they didn’t know that.
Three teams mistook a cropped photo of Posh Spice for a cropped photo of Michael Jackson. Have you ever seen them in the same place at the same time?
When we played She Bop by Cyndi Lauper, one team said it was “that song from the flashback in Never Been Kissed.”
One of our hosts was trying to give hints about a bonus question where the answer was Libya… and he said it was in Asia… because he mixed it up with Syria. Naturally, there were team names including “an American finding Libya on a map”, and “an American who knows geography”.
See you next week.
