Teehee.

I had several non-farker friends call me.

"Did you see Jeopardy??"

Of course I did. Silly non-farkers. Don't they know I live here?
 
2007-11-12 06:58:09 PM  
Hell, I was just excited to be homr for Jeopardy! for once. I nearly peed myself when I saw that. Then I called all the contestants assholes for avoiding the category.
 
2007-11-12 06:59:35 PM

2007-11-12 06:59:46 PM  
Ours starts now.

LlamaGirl: Silly non-farkers

There is so much to that simple, three-word phrase.
 
2007-11-12 07:01:22 PM  
Coolness, whatever TF-er arranged this rocks a pony!
 
2007-11-12 07:01:59 PM  
But what are the questions for those headlines? I'm not sure how to word a question related to them.
 
2007-11-12 07:02:46 PM  
holy shiat! Is this for reals? If so, headline #1 is mine!
 
2007-11-12 07:04:07 PM  
ok so, if the answers were the healines, what were the questions?

what is the BBC?

or what tag?

i don't get it.

dgc360: holy shiat! Is this for reals? If so, headline #1 is mine!

It's for real.
 
2007-11-12 07:05:00 PM  
dgc360: holy shiat! Is this for reals? If so, headline #1 is mine!

It was for real.

To answer the question on how it was phrased. They would leave a key word out of the headline.
 
2007-11-12 07:06:05 PM  
That's awesome :)
 
2007-11-12 07:11:54 PM  
Wow my tivo should be taping that tonight, as it always does. I'll have to make sure not to miss it, as I always do.

dgc360: holy shiat! Is this for reals? If so, headline #1 is mine!

That's awesome!

I just saw the episode. Does this mean we've made the big time? What's next a category on TF Discussions or Anon-DITs?
 
2007-11-12 07:14:53 PM  
Thanks, submitter! We may have new Farkers if the players' reactions are any indication.
 
2007-11-12 07:15:17 PM  
damn, none of them were mine
 
2007-11-12 07:16:24 PM  
dstanley: Thanks, submitter! We may have new Farkers if the players' reactions are any indication.

The "soba" question got a noticeable chuckle from the guy who answered it
 
2007-11-12 07:16:56 PM  
Dang it, missed it!
 
2007-11-12 07:18:35 PM

I still think UFIA would have made a great video Daily double

THIS.

Although Alex had a jab at Canadians...so it wasn't all bad
 
2007-11-12 07:41:30 PM  
So whose headlines made it? Anyone know?

I just saw the category.
 
2007-11-12 07:43:33 PM  
They really did try to avoid the catagory.
 
2007-11-12 07:44:15 PM  
sweet, mine was the $600 answer.
 
2007-11-12 07:45:54 PM  
jaylectricity: absoluteparanoia: So whose headlines made it? Anyone know?

I don't know...some funny ones, I guess


See JonnyG's post at 2007-11-12 06:57:36 PM

That was them.
 
2007-11-12 07:50:10 PM  
dgc360: sweet, mine was the $600 answer.

Congrats..
 
2007-11-12 07:53:00 PM  
That guy in the middle is the most obnoxious, pompous bastard I have ever seen. If I were Alex, I'd punch him in the throat and remind him he's NOT Ken Jennings.
 
2007-11-12 07:53:11 PM  
the look in Alex's eyes after that round was priceless. You could almost hear him say "Give the writer's ANYTHING they want! Just get them back!"

bahahaha

/btw dgc360 congrats!

fiddlesissy: Congrats..

mr lawson: /btw dgc360 congrats!

Thanks!
 
2007-11-12 08:04:38 PM  
How did this work? I'm confused and intrigued.
 
2007-11-12 08:06:12 PM  
mr lawson: You could almost hear him say "Give the writer's ANYTHING they want! Just get them back!"

Wouldn't this episode have been recorded well before the strike started?
 
2007-11-12 08:07:02 PM  
dgc360: fiddlesissy: Congrats..

mr lawson: /btw dgc360 congrats!

Thanks!


Yes. Most definitely congrats ;)

Don't know since this is the ToC.

The contestant in the center looked like Truman Capone's gayer brother!
 
2007-11-12 08:23:26 PM  
the best part was the guy in the middle giggling at the headlines. made my jeopardy night.
 
2007-11-12 08:23:28 PM  
Ha, that's great!
 
2007-11-12 08:23:50 PM  
Nice work, JonnyG
 
2007-11-12 08:23:57 PM  
I demand a youtube link of every question.

2007-11-12 08:24:40 PM  
I submitted this with a better headline for double Jeopardy.

/I'll get over it
 
2007-11-12 08:25:02 PM  
Here's the audio, they held out until the end so they all got asked right in a row.

Fark won't let me link mp3s so you'll have to cut and paste.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: I just wish that they could've found a way to use THIS as an audio-related answer somehow...

If only man, if only...
 
2007-11-12 08:27:02 PM  
Deuteronomy?


lpswich clams?
 
2007-11-12 08:27:04 PM  
I guess my headline with an Ironic tag saying "Jews build large oven" was a bit too controversial for the Jeopardy crowd...
