Which MeFite will be on Jeopardy! today? October 9, 2013 9:09 AM   Subscribe

Pitrified (aka Theresa Warner). Cheer her on as she makes her hometown of Alton, MO proud. Check your local listings. Sorry for the late notice!

Yay! The only thing that can make Jeopardy better is having someone specific to cheer on. I am seriously okay with being notified if any of your friends or family are on the show.

(I don't watch Jeopardy every day -- 2:30 in the afternoon is not that convenient unfortunately -- so this is also an excuse to DVR it without feeling kind of silly.)

Awesome!

excuse to DVR it without feeling kind of silly

Evidently we're super-silly, then, because mrs ozzy and I have been DVRing Jeopardy! every day for the last 5 years or so.

(But we're a few days behind, so ... no spoilers, I guess? Or something.)

What is Jeopardy?

Yay! I feel silly saying "Good luck" because, since the show has already been taped and I am not a time traveler (as far as you all know), saying "Good luck" would not change whatever outcome already occurred back when the show(s) were taped.

Still though, I will say "Good Luck" because I don't know what the hell else to say.

Good luck!

I just want to ask you, "What is good luck - we're all counting on you?"

Done and done. Though it will have to be updated, once a J-Archive link is available for Theresa, and if she goes on to appear on successive dates.

To repeat jessamyn's jingle: ♫ the wonderful thing about the wiki is that anyone can edit it.

Well you think going on Jeopardy is impressive, one of our mild mannered Mods by day kicks some butt! Wednesday nights on TV.

Oh yeah, I hope you spend your winnings on fun things! Buy a pony!

I feel like I've heard from at least 3 or 4 other MeFites that they've been on Jeopardy. It would make a nice MeFi Wiki page if they didn't mind outing themselves.

Hi Miko. There is a MeFi wiki listing the many MeFites who've been on Jeopardy! I didn't know about it till after this post went up.

MeFites in Jeopardy! would be a great name for a web-based soap opera.

"Oh, scarabic! Whatever will we do?"

"First, be smart from the very beginning...."

Imagine the Jeopardy MeFite Round.
Welcome to Jeopardy. Here are your six topics, each with five questions:

Should I Eat This?
Relationshipfilter
Poster's Remorse
The Mod Squad
Ne'er do Wells
The Banhammer

Let's get started....

Did she pick the "Penis Mightier" category? Say "yes."

J-Archive still isn't updated, and I didn't catch the episode, but Fikkle Fame appears to have a quick overview of the episode, nothing that Pitrified did not continue on to the next round.

She didn't, but she did fine, and she has an awesome smile as well as plenty of smarts.

Horace Rumpole and DiscourseMarker were on Jeopardy within a few months of each other! That's neat.
