For the third Not My Job question, Kristen Kish chose all three choices as her answer. It was another instance where all three choices for the third Not My Job question were correct.
The story referenced by the second limerick was based on a potential Internet of Things attack scenario and not based on an actual attack. Bleeping Computer has more information on the scenario and how it was mis-reported.
For the third Not My Job question, Carrie Brownstein wanted the answer to be "A" but wanted to go with "C". Carrie asked what Corin Tucker thought. Corin said that it was either "C or B". Tom Papa responded with "You're right, it's A" and they received a bell ding. When Tom asked how well Carrie and Corin did, Bill Kurtis said that they had answered two out of three correct, even though they had answered the first two questions correct and got a bell ding for the third.
Dulcé Sloan initially answered her first Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "Defense", she changed her answer to "Homeland Security" and got credit for it. For her seventh question, Dulcé answered "Corn Pops", then asked the audience to tell her the answer. The audience shouted out "Pop Tarts", which Dulcé changed her answer to and got credit for it.
Amy Dickinson answered her fifth Lightning question with "boa constrictor", which Tom and Bill accepted her answer. The correct answer was "three Burmese pythons".
