Annika's Journal Jeopardy, 2006

It's July, and that means it's time for the second annual annika's journal version of the popular game show, Jeopardy!

I'll be your host. As last year, I pick the answers, you guess the questions, and you must remember to use the signalling device and phrase your response in the form of a question.

I'll start it off with the first category: "American Skankwomen." Like last year, the first couple of correct responders will get to name the rest of the categories, until all the category boxes are filled. (Of course, I'll reserve the right to veto any categories i think are lame.)

So here's the first question:


Good luck!

Update: Controversy on the first question already! Drake Steel's response, which was accepted by the judges, was 54 hours. According to Wikipedia, Brittany's marriage to Jason Alexander lasted 55 hours. Just to be absolutely certain, I looked up the annulment certificate, which bears a time stamp of 12:24 p.m. on January 5, 2004. I then determined the difference between the reported time of marriage, 5:30 a.m. and the time of annulment. The result is exactly 54 hours and 54 minutes. So, therefore I would have accepted either 54 or 55 hours as a correct response. So big congratulations to Drake, who participated last year but never got on the board!

What is "if hours were IQ points, it would be a tie".

What is "we don't know yet because it's still ongoing."

As you'll remember, the event in Vegas was annulled. So the KFed hoohaa is her first marital menage.

What is until the buzz wore off?

"What is when he sobered up?"

Oh no Shell, I know. In every legal wrangle there is a winner and a loser, and both parties have lawyers. In the end, even the winner at least suspects that the lawyers fucked him.

The thing that gets me is how some people can blow right past my flawless reasoning as if it were not fact. I suppose that most of us are at least a little drunk today.

Ouch. What is... Hey. Casca, who you calling "a little drunk"? sheesh

After much discussion, the judges are going to give it to Drake Steel! Nice job, Drake! You may now name the next category, or you can continue with "American Skankwomen."

Posted by: annika on Jul. 4, 2006

Wow! Even my 16 year old son, who like knows all this stuff (admittedly he can't stand BS) was stumped. So, Ms Trebek, lets go with American Skankerwoman for $200.00!

Also concerning lawyers, Abraham Lincoln (my personal all time hero) won a lawsuit for the railroad vs steamship companies in what was like a landmark case, had to sue the railroads to pay him. Lawyers have the most thankless job!

Fuck That! I'm not playing. This shit is fixed, just like last year. Whoever heard of Drake fucking Steel.

I want a bell that goes "Ding", like Drake's.

Heh... anyone realize that my first draft read "I want a Ding, like Drake's"? Gawd, the responses that woulda produced...
