Two points about Jeopardy! tonight

Cézanne's Leda with Swan
Cozying up to? Leda is "cozying up to a swan"?

Clue crew or Alex or whoever writes these things: Leda was raped by the swan.

Okay, looking at Cézanne's actual painting, I guess you have to know the story and maybe it's the painter I should be annoyed with.

But still. Geeze. "Cozying up to".

(ps: hippotigris = ... elephant? rhino? Hippo is a bit opaque, I guess, but tigris should have suggested stripes.And if you know "Hippodrome" or "Philhip" or even that hippopotamus = river horse, then "zebra" should have come to mind, as it did for one of them...)

Well, lucky ol' you! Our "Jeopardy!" was preempted by a second half-hour of network news, which didn't really tell anyone anything they didn't already know :-(((
