Pressure Can Break Down Even The Nerdiest And Most Composed Of Us

Teen tournament champ drops the f-bomb on Jeopardy. I have to imagine his internal dialogue was something along the lines of "Damnit! I've fantasized about her thousands of times, but when it really counts, I can't remember that her name is 'Natalie Portman?' AUGH!" Also, how did this make it to air? CBS is getting all loosey-goosey with their profanity censors lately. F*ck.

That's pretty friggin funny! Hang it up Daddy!

Bella Rossa said...

Isn't that awesome? And BTW, Dale, I've been listening to April March for the last hour straight. I LOVE that song.

Bubs said...

I know just how that kid feels.

Good stuff!

Bella Rossa said...

You dropped the f-bomb in from of Alex Trebek, Bubs?

Chancelucky said...

If he had said,

What the fuck?
Who the fuck?
or Why the fuck?

Then it would have been acceptable on the show.

Bella Rossa said...

Exactly, Chance! That was his real mistake, not phrasing it in the form of a question.

I TiVo Jeopardy usually, but never watch the teen tournaments because it's seems mean. Now I wish I had.

Bella Rossa said...

I'm always impressed by the intensity and tenacity of the teen tournament contestants. Some of those kids, nerdy or not, girls are boys, are serious about wanting to whup some trivial ass.

I'll take four letter words for two hundred please.

"This anglo-saxon term can be stirred, faced, or taken."

"What is *#$*#$*?"

That's correct.

Four letter words for 400 please Alex.

Ding Ding ding, it's the Daily Double.

"Oedipus was one."

"Mo@#$@#%47" I knew these white people had this thing fixed, don't you think?"



"I'm sorry that's not in the form of a question."

"Go blow it out your honky @#$ Alex."

Cuts to Charmin commercial.

"I'm sorry to report that Mr. Richard Pryor has been disqualified from dead comedian Jeopardy. Lenny Bruce, it's your board."

"Okay, let's try famous junkies for two hundred Alex...."

Bella Rossa said...

A ha ha!! Chance, thank you for the biggest laugh of my day. A day that includes writing several fruitless e-mails to real estate executives who are making far too much money to care about the deadlines of a struggling Chicago writer. God, I needed that.

Dale said...

I only watch the Teen Tournament because then, I have half a chance.

Bella Rossa said...

Dale - I only play during Celebrity Week. I have a better chance of keeping with the pretty and dumb.
