Seems as though he isnt really that fond of the show, or Alex Trebek.

I've read the original blog post; Ken was joking. Whoever reported this blown it out of proportion.

(He also suggested that Trebek use a Bob Barker-like signoff but for marijuana instead of pets :D)

EDIT: Read his post that I pulled from Google's cache.

Even reading that article should be enough to realize this isn't real. He claimed Trebek was replaced by a robot, for God's sake!



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

I hope that his website was hacked into and someone else posted that. I can't believe this fellow could be that back biting.

It seems no one is picking up on the joke, seeing as I've seen the story both on CNN and the Comcast homepage as "Jeopardy" Champs Jabs Show. Good Lord.

Add Yahoo to the list.



They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

It's a series of tubes.

Yahoo! is now talking about how it is a joke.

Huh. I read it originally on CNN.com, and it was the exact same fucking article, except for between these two paragraphs:

----

"You're like the Dorian Gray of syndication," he says. "You seem to think `change' means replacing a blue polyethylene backdrop with a slightly different shade of blue polyethylene backdrop every presidential election or so."

A call by The Associated Press to "Jeopardy!" spokesman Jeff Ritter was not immediately returned Tuesday.

----

Was this:

In a posting Jennings made Tuesday, he calls the entry "a humor piece."

So Yahoo can go screw themselves on this one as far as I'm concerned. What's more, Yahoo's article says that Jennings "blasts" Jeopardy, whereas CNN said he "jabs" it.
