From some set last year (house written I believe, perhaps a Maryland tournament and Henry might know):

A tossup's first sentence mentioned that he was born to Hasidic Jews in Belarus and studied art.

Buzz!

Hitler

We stopped and laughed for a few minutes. Then we discussed why the Freshman Method of buzzing is not a good idea.

(The answer was Marc Chagall.)

Resurrecting due to an amusing neg at practice today on an '02 IS set (32, I think):
Question: something about it being treason for anyone but a sultan to own one
My teammate: Mamluks?
Correct: Elephants
The next clue involved the first domestication of them.

What makes this especially bad was that it came after the clues "hanged a kitten" and "joined the Communist party"

On Tuesday, playing MCMNT 2008, the one freshman we've recruited so far made his first collegiate practice buzz.

Wrong: Dalai Lama
Right: John Roberts

Luckily this came just before "Fred Thompson" and not after.

If you're going to have a memorable first buzz, it might as well be a bad neg. That said, he seems eager to have fun and learn stuff, so I predict he will be making much better buzzes soon (in all senses of the word "better").

In middle school practice today:

Answer given: Melanoma
Correct Answer: Melatonin

The question asked for a neurotransmitter secreted by the pineal gland. I was somewhat impressed that a 7th grader sort of knew what he was talking about, but the idea of a cancer-secreting gland amused me.

During EFT, I negged with "Jedi Council" for "Lutwaffe" at some point in the question were it had almost certainly established that it the answer was something involving Germany. It ruled. I think Evan also negged with "Tie Fighters" for "Sentinels" after a clue about them gaining the ability to teleport after flying into the sun.

Not a neg, but sort of funny in a similar way (from some old ACF or mACF packet):

Clue in a question about John Cage that listed some of his works: 4'33"
