Round One MONDEGREENS - "Hey smilin’ strange / you're looking happily deranged" Purposefully left a mystery by songwriter Mark Mulcahy, what is the third line to the first verse of "Hey Sandy", the theme song of the 90's coming of age sitcom Pet and Pete, confirmed in a 2012 Reddit AMA by actor Danny Tamberelli, who played Little Pete Wrigley the show? ROCK LYRICS - The character Gollum from Lord of the Rings is referenced in what Led Zeppelin song?

LEXICON - What Latin phrase translates to "occasion of war", and describes an event used to justify war? AGRICULTURE - In what country is most of the world’s coffee produced? Missed Corrections and KnowNotes Stephen Webster says : In episode 74, the question was asked "what 3 action movies did future state governors of California and Minnesota costar in” The final movie, Batman and Robin would be incorrect to me, based on the wording of the question. A cameo as a guard does not rise to the level of "costar" which could be misleading I would use the phrase "appeared in", just to be safe. This might be a nitpick, but if a team at my local trivia missed the question do to this phrasing, there definitely would be complaints. Rachael supports Marc, saying ‘Spy Kids 2’ as an answer is sufficient. Elyse wants us to know the lyric “Rita Hayworth gave good face” is from Vogue and not Express Yourself. Gil wants to clarify that Theo is from The Cosby Show, not The Facts of Life.

COLORS THAT END IN URPLE - What ancient Mediteranean civilization got its ancient Greek name from the purple cloth exported from the region?

GEOGRAPHY - The Democratic Republic of the Congo was formerly known as what country?

Rate My Question MOVIES - In 2006, the movie 'A History of Violence' became the last major Hollywood film to do what? - submitted by Jon Lane Final Questions SINGERS & TECHNOLOGY - What song, which was named after an eatery located under a NASA space lab, but is perhaps better known for being an exterior stand-in for a popular hangout on the sitcom Seinfeld, earned a singer the distinction of being named the “Mother of the MP3,” by audio enginners, as her warm vocals provided a control track for testing the effects of compression on the format’s encoding algorithms? MEDICAL TERMS - Syncope is the medical term for what? ALSO KNOWN AS - By what title is Arthur Wellesly otherwise known as?

Love the podcast, but I feel like this impeachment concept is still not being communicated accurately. It's pretty simple though...The House of Reps impeaches (the Senate does not). You can think of this part of the process sort of like a criminal indictment that yields formal charges. If the House passes impeachment articles (charges), the process is moved into the Senate where they try the case (which is presided over by the chief justice of the SCOTUS). There are several options the Senate can take, but the ultimate outcome is conviction and removal from office. This is how a president can be impeached but not convicted or removed. Basically all that means is that the House was really pissed off at the president, voted on some charges, but the Senate didn't do anything concrete about it. - “submitted by Evan Tishuk Shout out to Dan Lundberg and Chuck Grovenor for educating us further on the process of impeachment in the Know Nonsense Trivia Facebook group.

Missed Corrections “New to your podcast, so you may have already heard this. But listening to Ep. 29 right now and the answer to your Earthquake question is indeed Alaska, not Oregon.” - submitted by Travis * Magneto’s Real Name - “I said his name was Erik Lessnar. I suppose I was thinking of the wrestler Brock Lessnar. In the movies, Magneto’s real government name is Erik Lehnsherr. In the comics it is Max Eisenhardt.” - submitted by Quizmaster Lee * Erin Sullivan and Andrew Fiffick wrote in to inform us that the classic Disney animators name is pronounced Ub, like “chub” as Andrew puts it. He adds that Ub Iwerks “isn't one of Walt Disney's 9 old men because he had left the company in 1929 and the 9 old men, who were all animators, came about in the mid 30s. Ub did return to the company in 1940 and pioneered many special effects used in their films.” * “Let me start by saying, that I am a religious listener of the podcast. I get a good laugh each and every episode. Keep up the good work. But...as a North Carolinian, a NASCAR fan, and a general trivia enthusiast, I am cringing every time I hear you say “Carl” Yarborough. The man’s name is Cale, which is short for Caleb.” - submitted by Dan Lundberg in our FB group. * “Ahh no, with Seth's impressive plethora of knowledge it actually makes me a bit sad to have to correct him. While "sussing" during the lil pacs episode Seth made the statement that the only disease to have ever been fully eradicated was polio and as a virologist I had to say something. The only disease to have ever been fully eradicated was smallpox, which was officially declared eradicated in 1980. Efforts to eradicate polio did not actually start until 1988. Since 1988, polio cases have dropped 99%, however, the disease is still present today and unfortunately is still not eradicated. In fact, in September of this year the Phillipines declared a polio outbreak. Love the podcast, and especially get excited when you guys ask virus related questions!!” - submitted by Brittany * “Alright guys, I'm officially confused. I think every time you do the Everybody Loves Raymond voice impression, you mention 4 kids. They only had 3 kids. Where is this 4th kid coming from? This actually screwed me up at my local trivia night a few weeks ago, when they actually asked how many kids they had on the show. I answered 4 because I thought I remembered it from the podcast. I figured I had just heard wrong, but in this week's episode, there's a 4th kid again!” - submitted by Kevin Round Two PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING - Which WWE superstar has had the most title reigns?
