Oh, how I love “Jeopardy”!
I love playing along, I love yelling at people to “bet the farm!’ during Double Jeopardy.
I even love the theme song, and I may have some inappropriate feelings about Alex Trebek. (WITH the moustache, thank you.)
There’s just one problem.
The “Let’s get to know the contestants!” portion of the program.
The contestants give the producers a story about themselves. Alex gives them a lead-in: “So, Ted, we hear you like to read phone books.” And then the contestant tells a 30 second story.
Tonight’s three offerings:
1) I gave aloe vera to a sunburned (Z-list) TV actor.
2) I give my grad school friends rides in my car.
3) The reception tent fell apart at my wedding.
Come ON. This ain’t the Teen Tournament. You’ve lived a whole life, for the love of Pete, has NOTHING interesting happened to you?
So I’m putting it out there. If you were on Jeopardy, what would your 30 second story be? (Keeping in mind it would have to get past the censors, so nothing involving two girls and a cup, pervs.)
Leave your answer in the comments, or make it a post for your own blog. But I’m sure we can do better.
