"Fresh Off the Boat"
While you were busy playing your
sousaphone next to a bunch of white supremacists flying the rebel
flag, we were playing games for fake points and fun. Tonight's #HashtagWars:
#BabyJams. We end in a three-way tie with 800.
Next up, we have Poli Sigh
(presidential coverage) and tonight's Live Challenge, Trump Card.
Troll-in-chief frontrunner Donald Trump just gave out Lindsey
Graham's phone number in a stump speech. Come up with an outgoing
message for said number. The grand goes to Randall for a message
involving certain foliage on the human body that we won't repeat
here. Because we're classy like that.
Time's running out with The
AA-Team. Randall goes from first to worst.

ate Chipotle for lunch 153 days in a row. Share an entry in your
Chipotle journal. The winner: "Day 1: This is a good idea." HARI
KONDABOLU wins the Internet with his brevity!

Scott capped a win yesterday by being
the only one with the correct response in Final Jeopardy!. He'll
try and prove himself again up against...
Santa Monica, CA
Scott starts with $200 Americana.
At the TV timeout, Scott's got some stiff competition with $1400
to Jake's $2200. Out in front: Eliza on $3600.
Jake finds the Daily Double
under $600 Lighthouses. Trailing by $600, he bets $3000 on this:
all US lighthouses come under the jurisdiction of this branch of
the armed services. "What is the Coast Guard?" Right for $8000,
where he ends the round against Eliza's $5800. Scott, on $1600,
will get freedom of the board to start Double Jeopardy!...
... with $400 "Born" to Be a Song.
Jake finds the first Daily Double under $2000 Sophocles, Euripides
& Aeschylus. He halves the level on this: in Sophocles' play about
her, revenge is on the mind of this daughter of Agamemnon. "Who is
Antigone?" No, it was Electra, dropping him to $11,400.He'll try
again with $1200 Peninsulas. He fronts $1000 again on this: the
southeastern Mexican state of Quintana Roo is on this peninsula.
"I wish I had made it a True Daily Double. What is the Yucatan
Peninsula?" Says the man who's now up to $22,400. He ends with
$22,800 to $13,200. Eliza has $6200. Everyone's still in it, but
Scott and Eliza need a LOT of help.
FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Historic Names": in 1909 this Oxford
student surveyed crusader castles in the Mideast; a few years
later he returned for less peaceful activities. Correct response:
who was TE Lawrence?
Scott doubles up. Jake... is wrong.
Scott wins again with $26,400, giving him a two-day take of
