"Mike and Jon, Jon and Mike—I've known them both for years, and, clearly, one of them is very funny. As for the other: truly one of the great hangers-on of our time."—Steve Bodow, head writer, The Daily Show

"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

Bob! Harris! On! Jeopardy!!

Amy Goodman and Alex Trebeck don't have much in common! There is one thing, though! Both of their shows, Democracy Now! and Jeopardy! use an exclamation point as part of their official title!

I don't think it's possible to beat this joke into the ground!

Seriously, though... Bob Harris, longtime valued friend of this site, is competing today on Jeopardy! in round one of their super-duper giganto all-time championship. Tune in and cheer Bob on.

UPDATE: Bob won! He now advances to the second round. Then hopefully to the third and fourth. If he wins there, he would face Ken Jennings and the other survivor in a three day long battle. I believe the winner of that match receives the right to consume the brains of his competitors, thereby absorbing their souls. (There may also be some money involved.)

I see Bob has been too modest to mention this so far on his site. Where he gets this self-control I'll never know.

Bob Harris is a trained monkey and nothing else. I guess that's better than an untrained monkey. It's appalling to watch this manic moron win money. Oh, well. Hehehe
