This is Jeopardy!

Grape and I were watching Jeopardy! last night when one Alex said there was a twist. Hmmm… What could it be?

In this case there was a category that had to be taken last because those items related to items that had been on the board previously.

One of the categories here was Geography. The clue was a picture of a peninsula and the description was “… a peninsula between the Bering Sea and the Sea of Okutsk”. I recognized it immediately as the Kamchatka peninsula and commented to Julie that all my years of playing Risk payed off.

In the ‘last’ category, one of the first clues was “In the Geography category, all the clues were related to territories in this world domination board game.”

Talk about irony.

Talking about irony, on Meet the Press on Sunday, Tim Russert showed a clip of when Dr. King was on that program in August 1967. The moderator asked Dr. King what responsibility the Negro (sic) had to better his station in life.

Dr. King responded that it was a cruel irony to tell a bootless man to pull himself up by his bootstraps.
