Hey ever-bo-dee

A couple of things of note. First off, Fark's a category on Jeopardy on Friday, Jan 9th again, it's an all new episode. That's pretty much all I know about it. Check your local listings for times, it's syndicated so no telling when it's coming on that day. Last time no one got any of the questions (answers?) right. Apologies for the short lead time, I've got knee surgery pending on Friday so I've been distracted with that.

Secondly, it seems the 10th Anniversary Fark Party is a tad more popular than I expected. I figured we'd get maybe like 10 people there. Didn't realize people would be organizing caravans from Tampa, Chicago, etc. As it turns out, I have to travel around that week anyhow so I'm gonna try to extend my trip and hit a few extra cities. Tentatively:

Vancouver
San Francisco-ish
Vegas
Lexington (as previously announced)
DC

Dunno where else. Stay tuned

Anyhow sorry that was so short but I gotta dash. Coming soon: more on bad ads (short version: we didn't authorize it, Fark isn't the only site it happened to, and we're going to kill whoever's responsible and I'm not exaggerating), and the continuation of the discussion of how Fark's ban system works. Got sidetracked on a bunch of things but expect both of those soon. Rock on peeps

Rogh-sensei: Someone rock the google-fu and find the Fark category answers from last time.


Found a snippet

Naturally, two of the questions dealt with "potent potables." The first was "Noodle shop accused of aiding drunk driving; that's because nobody left this place (this buckwheat noodle)." ("Soba!" Ha, ha!) And the second, "After one of these 'feral' birds was released into a park, alcoholics...hunt it down and try to drink it," had the obvious answer of "wild turkey." Guess the "feral" keyword steered the contestants away from Grey Goose.
