Jeopardy With Annika, Round 7

Shelly gets the first Daily Double of the year! In the category "Dicks."

Let's go over the Daily Double rules.

Just like last year, the rules for Daily Double are almost the same as on tv, with an important exception. In my game everybody gets to play the Daily Double.

Every response must have a wager in it. The lowest you can wager is $100 and the highest you can wager is either $500 or however much money you have earned already, whichever is higher. Or you can wager any amount in between.

One caveat. Since Shelly picked the Daily Double, his response gets priority. So if you guess before him you run the risk of tipping him off to the correct response. If Shelly either guesses wrong or does not respond by the expiration of the time limit (10:00 p.m. Pacific time on Monday) the rest of the responses will count in order of their posting.

The competition is wide open. Here are the standings. D-Rod is in the lead with $500; Matt and Shelly have $200 each; Drake Steel, TBinSTL and SkippyStalin have $100 each.

Here's the clue. Good luck.

(For $500) What are conical rock formations (aka "Fairy Chimneys" or tufa rock)?

Also, a note to Turning Spork: Learn to read instructions.

I'll take Dicks for $500 next.

Shelly, I was looking at Sporks answer and thinking, "hmmm, he's got the right answer, he buzzed in, he gave his wager, he phrased it in the form of a question. What's up? Shelly's going to be mad when I give it to Spork."

Then I re-read my own instructions, just to be sure I didn't miss anything, and I totally bust out laughing!!! I almost blew it, that would have been embarrassing.

Shelly is correct, and now leads with $700.

Oh, by the way, the last category should be "Great lawyers".

D'OH!!! That'll teach me.

And I vote for "'70s Top 40 Hits" as the last category. :)
