Wabbit Wholes

(A Not-So Wordless Wednesday

In Case You Were Wondering)

  

 

I am a long-time fan of Jeopardy! dating back to the days as a child when Art Fleming was the host and Don Bardo was the announcer of the long-running quiz show.  I admit I don’t have any delusions of achieving either fame or fortune but it can be somewhat entertaining(and educational too) nonetheless.  The increase in trivia knowledge as well as the brain-flexing that are tested whenever I watch can't be a bad thing as far as I am concerned.

 

 

Recently there was a contestant who racked up some pretty impressive winnings.  After his successful run on the show he revealed that he had acquired quite a bit of information from reading Wikipedia.  

 

 

I have done the same on occasion without those stellar results.  Doing such reading is akin to a rabbit hole hunt of sorts.  You may never be certain where it will lead.  And speaking of rabbits, you may be aware that Elmer Fudd was known for wabbit-hunting. And if that Bugs you, so be it. . .  That's All Folks.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - the show is a longtime favorite of many.

 

Endre Barath, Jr. - the mirror provides enough reminders but thanks for pointing out the "obvious".  🙃

Michael, I still have a couple wabbits living under my bridge out back, and still come to the back door for their carrot.

I have not learned enough on Wikipedia to be considered for Jeopardy.

Joan Cox - your bunnies seem to be multiplying like err, well, rabbits.  😃

 

Roy Kelley - it was an interesting strategy and not one I have learned either.

 

Endre Barath, Jr. - reminders of this fact are all around me.

Hannah Williams - I don't recall a show called Whammys.  Was that Elmer Fudd's take on the Grammys?

 

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! - thank you.

We also enjoy Jeopardy. Wondering if you're referring to the most recent champ we really enjoyed, Matt Amodio?  Interesting tidbit about Wikipedia too. Wonder if they encouraged him to donate. :)

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - yes, he was the Jeopardy! champion with the Wikipedia searching technique big reveal.  I like seeing the different strategies from the players on the show.  Category selection is key.  And sometimes the knowledge displayed seems quite random.

 

Hannah Williams - you might be right about movie-going.  This is about the time there is typically a big release of award-contenders but I still enjoy the smaller under-the-radar films that are released throughout the year. 

 

Unfortunately my attendance has been marked as a "no show" for far too long.  It will be interesting to see how the industry evolvesn because that seems to be given.

Oh, what a cute post that put a big smile on my face, Michael! We are also Jeopardy fans and have been for years as well. Loved the wabbit hole reference!

 

I too, have gone down that wabbit hole and what is so annoying about Wikipedia to me is that I always question whether what I'm reading is true or not. Since anyone can change the information there, I worry that it's not factual. After all, there's a large population of Americans who are dying to rewrite history!

Debe Maxwell, CRS - Wikipedia definitely has its issues and those issues can certainly lead to chasing rabbits and "bugs" of all kinds.  I wish people were smarter-than-the-average-bear.  And that is part of the message in a post that is currently in "draft".

Debe Maxwell, CRS - it's not a Yogi Bear(or even a Yogi Berra post entirely) but your comment had my mind "going there".  Maybe that was a boo-boo.  🙃

Thank you for taking me on yet another word scramble. Every time I start to read one of your blog posts, I end up both puzzled and amused at how you see our world

Michael; 99% of the time I agree wholeheartedly in your conclusions🤓.
