Keith Hahn of Dealbreaker.com has a hilarious recount of CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo‘s recent appearance on “Jeopardy” that made me laugh out loud several times.
Hahn wrote, “Category: The Mole, for $200
“A: Most moles destroy gardens & lawns searching for insect larvae or these ‘global’ worms.
“Q: Maria buzzes quickly and spurts out ‘Computer worms! What is computer worms.’ Both are incorrect, and suggest recent head trauma. The correct question, especially with the ‘GLOBAL’ hint, is ‘What are EARTH worms?’
“Category: N’AA’CP, for $800 (the category was a stupidly irrelevant shout out to Mfume that meant all questions have a double A in them, like the word aardvark)
“A: ‘Blah, blah, blahâ€¦the nation’s first fashion magazine.’
“Q: Maria buzzes, ‘What is Vogue?’ Alex shoots her down. Anderson chimes in with the answer ‘Harperâ€™s Bazaar,’ because it is the only fashion magazine with 15,000 ‘A’s in its title. He is, remarkably, correct. Alex reminds the contestants that all answers must have those two As in them. Maria acts as if the mysteries of the universe have just been unveiled to her.”
