Odds and ends

Reality bites: No one knew TV reality show “Vanderpump Rules” is a spinoff of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”, or that MTV’s “The Hills” was spun off from “Laguna Beach”.

Ken’s Korner: He revived the phrase “no harm no foul” for a clue about the Arctic Ocean’s bearded seal on which everyone took an incorrect guess (otter, walrus, polar bear).

Correct Qs: DD1 – What are the Bahamas? DD2 – What are noble gases? DD3 – What is “man, my son”? FJ – What is “Rent”?
