Ken Jennings: "I was only kidding!"

    You'd have to be pretty moronic to think this was anything other than tongue-in-cheek. Look at the categories Jennings "suggested"


    "Among the highlights of Jennings' "suggestions" for what Jeopardy! could do to improve its hipness quotient:

    * Employ categories that "middle America actually cares about," such as PlayStation, Arby's 5-for-$5.95 Value Menu, Reality TV, Men's Magazines, Skanks from Reality TV Who Got Naked in Men's Magazines, and Potpourri. (Ha ha, Jeopardy! already uses that last one. Zing!)
    * Throw in a few physical challenges (hence the mention of angry bees).
    * Face facts that the exclamation point is too kitschy. "It just seems like you're trying too hard. Face it, it's a '60s relic. Sure, all my parents' favorite movies end with an exclamation point: Oliver! Hatari! Support Your Local Sheriff! But this is a subtler time. Do you really think that, today, Best Picture
    Oscars would have gone to Million Dollar Baby! and Crash!? Certainly not."

    I'll take Jap Anus Relations for $100.

    That's JAPAN-US RELATIONS, Mr. Connery.

    I think I actually fell off my bed laughing so hard at that one.

    What's the difference between you and a mallard with a cold? One's a sick duck and I can't remember how it ends, but your mother's a whore.
