Jeopardy has gone viral: This show might have a following!

So, the correct final Jeopardy answer for, "What flower is a disparaging term for Lefty Liberals?" (sic) was Bleeding Heart. But this NPR producer wrote Pansy.
She got some chuckles in the studio and then it went viral.

I am laughing that she is with NPR of all places. This makes it ok that she used that term.
In my opinion.
At first when I watched the video I definitely thought she was an uptight righty.
See people!
Don't judge a person by their final Jeopardy answers!

What is it like to go viral on Jeopardy?!

Last week's Jeopardy

After Matt Jackson's reign for a few weeks, I though Josh Silverman was going to kill it-- he did but in a normal way. Not in a 'I am the smartest person alive!' way. Though, entertaining. And now that the Georgia Dean is gone (she was not that much fun but still solid), we're just going through contestants like water.

This is boring. But I can do blogspot still. Wheeeee! I'm a prolific blogger as you can tell.

Are you not sure what to think?

There surely has been a rush of posts lately. Two in one year!
So I just saw this commercial for IBM with Ken Jennings and I thought Yay! And that guy! Go him!


I also wanted to record that my children are now Jeopardy fans. We've been watching nightly and they ask for it. Sure they get to stay up late and that is probably the main reason for their interest. But a few times my daughter has told me I should definitely get on the show so it's a nice ego boost for Mom too! I'll take what I can get!

We've been watching so much that I wrote a list about it on the new List App.

Reasons I love watching Jeopardy with my kids. 

  1. I'm the smartest person alive!
  2. The happiness each time my 7 year old gets a correct answer. 
  3. "I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!"
  4. My 4 year old pretty much doesn't get the show but earlier today he gave me an exact quote from a contestant interview. "Happy Birthday, You're Fired!"
  5. "Mom, you should go on this show!" (Oh, dear, I have tried) 
  6. Math: They love "watching the numbers go up."
  7. Everyone under the age of 8 gets into their PJs sooo quickly before 7 pm.

Oh really?

Yes! A new post.

Matt Jackson is Killing It!
(I have yet to actually watch him play but I have read two articles about him so there is that.)
