* One clue made reference to the St. Louis ''Globe-Democrat'' no longer being printed. The problem is in between the episode's taping and air date, the defunct newspaper had been revived. An angry article forced the show compensate by having a clue citing its return. By the time ''that'' episode aired, the ''Globe-Democrat'' went belly-up again!

* In general, any category where announcer Johnny Gilbert reads off lines from a work (usually songs) in a deliberate tone. Examples include [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5NbDpYen00 Johnny Gilbert Does Shakespeare]] (January 13, 1999, with a rare Daily Double on the top row), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MsRw2x-NCg Johnny Gilbert Rocks]] (November 29, 1999), and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfi4l4Vrj0Q Johnny Gilbert Raps & Rocks On]] (October 7, 2008). You haven't lived until you've heard a man in his 80s deadpan his way through the likes of "Livin' la Vida Loca", "Hollaback Girl", and "I'm Too Sexy" with that Tidewater accent of his.
