Cyborgs and angry bees!

Dear Associated Press,

I have been an avid reader of Ken Jennings' blog for a whole month but I never even got how eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil he was. Silly me, when I read the blog post about Jeopardy! last week, I thought it was a joke. Thanks for clearing that up, Associated Press. When Ken said:

First up, the categories. Maybe when Art Fleming was alive, America just couldn’t get enough clues about “Botany” and “Ballet” and “The Renaissance,” but come on. Does every freaking category have to be some effete left-coast crap nobody’s heard of, like “Opera,” or, um, “U.S. History” or whatever? I mean, wake me up when you come up with something that middle America actually cares about. I think it would rule if, just one time, Alex had to read off a board like:
  • PlayStation
  • The Arby’s 5-for-$5.95 Value Menu
  • Reality TV
  • Men’s Magazines
  • Skanks from Reality TV Who Got Naked in Men’s Magazines
  • Potpourri

I thought it was a brilliant satire and a funny little post from the man who said "What is a ho?" on national television, then went on to create a funny, trivia-laden blog. BUT NO! Apparently you, Associated Press, have dug through the lies and discovered that Ken really would prefer to answer questions about Arby's than about art and actually wants to encourage the Jeopardy! Crew Clue to start eating each other. Thank you for opening my eyes!

... Either that or you're slandering¹ Ken's name to cover up that you're all a bunch of cyborgs yourself, just like that Alex Trebek.

¹ When it's in print, it's "libel." But no one ever says "libeling his name." Why is that?

Is this Ken trying to be funny? I...I don't know what to say. I would like Alex to say, "Skanks" or "get/got naked" though.

Dude, it's funny. Go read the whole post. I like it when the Clue Crew has to eat one of its members. I hate them!

Personally I liked the part where Alex says "Legalize cannabis" at the end of every episode. Maybe it could fill up that 8 minutes at the end of show when we're just watching credits and seeing Alex pretend to talk to the contestants. Why is it that it takes like 9 minutes to watch a 30 minute show when you fast forward through all the worthless garbage???
