Well, let's go by elimination.

Before-and-afters go like this: the answer (answer 0) has two sub-answers (we'll call them answer 1 and answer 2).  Each sub answer has a multiple-part question where the last part of the first question is the same as the first part of the second question (correspondingly "AB" and "BC" ) in such a way that answer 0=ABC.

To make it less confusing, format the B&A like this:

The full name of one of the characters, and their favorite Navajo food (I assume those are the combined answers you're looking for).

No, no, I'm not looking for two answers, I'm looking for one compound answer.  The second part of the compound answer is intrinsically tied to the first part.  Navajo cooking never came up in Futurama (let alone a character's penchant for a specific dish), so that part has to be suggested by the first part.

Consider "Regnal name of the third Bishop of Rome who is the father of Brittany, Caitlin, Cassidy, Chloe, Cody, Dermot, Dylan, Heather, Hunter, Ian, Jordan, Kendell, Kyra, Lauren, Max, Morgan, Noah, Phil, Q-Bert, Rumer, Sascha, Scout, Taylor, Tiffany, Wesley, and Zoe on The Simpsons."  The correct question would be "Who is Pope Cletus the Slack Jawed Yokel?"  If I asked it the other way, I'd essentially be asking two questions, which is not how Jeopardy is played.  That and most people wouldn't know who the third Pope was, but most people here would remember Cletus' roll call during "The Twisted World of Marge Simpson," so the second part suggests the first.

Ah, now I remember how it goes. (After watching Jeopardy a few days ago.)

"I have no clue Alex."

[And I don't remember any of the main characters mentioning Navajo. Also, for some reason, nachos come to my mind when I try to figure out what the answer is.]

So, if I understand correctly, the answer will be something along the lines of Fishy Joe's Popplers? Proper noun, possessive, word that also happens to be a Navajo dish. I think something that made it confusing was your use of the word "favorite". And, unless I'm wrong (which is very likely), you worded the sentence incorrectly; the way it's worded, the answer would be the full name of a Navajo food.

How is bread a favorite Navajo food? (I'm not really familiar with them ,except knowing that their language was used as a code in World War II.)
And just to make things straight, when you say "One of the main character's favorite Navajo foods", you want an answer along the lines of the following?

Who is Amy Wong pastrami?

Still wrong, Eyedol.  The point of the question is that the two answers share a common word or phrase.  In this case, a main character is "Philip J. Fry," and a common Navajo food is a food called "Fry Bread"

Hence, DrT asked for a main character's favorite Navajo food.  The question he asks is a combination of the two base questions, just as the answer is to be a combination of the two base answers.

Example:

I ask: "A song by Elton John about a ship-py episode"

I want:  An famous Elton John song that shares a word or phrase with a "ship-py" Futurama episode.

A ship-py episode = Love and Rocket (It's shippy and involves the ship)

With that in mind, you can deduce that the song I'm looking for is 'Rocket Man', since that is a famous Elton John song, and the two answers would share the word 'rocket.'

Thus, you splice your two answers into one phrase, making your answer "What is Love and Rocket Man?" and you would be correct.

I can't really explain it any better than that.

Hey, want me to kick you out? Kidding...kind of. I know my Jeopardy and take that comment as an insult. Besides, up until yours, no other question has required knowledge outside that of Futurama, let alone something as obscure as Navajo food, and your wording didn't help. Something like "The first man on Mars' favorite Navajo food" would have been better. In other words, the only actual clue in your question was about Navajo food; for someone not in the know about the Navajo, they'd have to work backwards, looking for a Navajo food that has part of a main character's name in it. While if you had included a clue about which main character it was, they could figure that out, then try to find a Navajo food with "Fry" in it. That's how it's done on Jeopardy, and that's how you did it later in your example of Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel. We weren't confused because we're stupid, or because we don't watch Jeopardy, we were confused because your wording was weird.

While I concede that I shouldn't have assumed people would automatically relate "food" to "Fry," I stand by my decision to use non-Futurama trivia, however obscure it may be.  After all, the Jeopardy B&As' elements are barely related if at all, and trivia wouldn't be trivia if it weren't obscure.

Sorry if I was affrontive.  It seemed like the more things were explained, the more confusing things became.

I only objected to the obscure trivia because of your wording. I didn't say you couldn't do it again, just word it properly. The way it works on Jeopardy is that there are two clues for two answers, and you only gave one clue. If you want to do more "Jeopardy!" categpries, you're more than welcome if you get the chance to ask a question. Just make sure you word it properly, and don't be so condescending if someone doesn't understand it. The reason I was confused was because you only gave one clue. It made you look like the one who didn't watch Jeopardy, because the question (as posted, not intended) was, grammatically, asking for the full name of a Navajo food. Now let's please carry on with the game. You're up, JBERGES.

DrThunder88: Now hold on. I watch 'Jeopardy' everyday, and know how most of the categories work. Your phrasing of the question (or answer, if you want to talk in 'Jeopardy' terms) was kind of confusing. I think all questions (or answers) should be related to Futurama, and if anyone does any B&A categories, try and keep it like that other game thread specifically created for B&A.

As for JBERGES, 'what is motza'? Oh yeah, thanks for explaining that stuff.

It's easy people. Go to Google and type in Shakespeare comedies.

Here's a hint. The last word in the play is the first word in the Futurama episode. (If you ignore the 'a', which is technically the first word.)

And Kloudes, you're wrong.

Why are you asking Eyedol? And no, there won't be a tournament of champions for two reasons:
We're not keeping track of points and it's against board rules to have an exclusive game.

lol, I'm not in charge of this game X-Periment. Guy Caballero is the on who created it.

As for your question, Guy Caballero is right. As much as I disagree with the rule, you aren't allowed to have exclusive games.

This game if formatted like Jeopardy, but we don't keep track of scores. Someone posts an answer, and if the next poster gets the correct question, they get to post the new answer.
