Out of the Blue

I and many others are saddened today at the news that Jeopardy host Alex Trebek is dead after his battle with pancreatic cancer. It seems unlikely to feel such an attachment to a game show host, but Alex was an institution, and a welcome guest in many of our homes every day. Condolences to his family. RIP Alex, you will be sorely missed.

Obituary: Alex Trebek, beloved 'Jeopardy!' host, dies after cancer battle at age 80.

Mournful Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

SNL’s Jeopardy spoofs are wonderful.

I'm guessing something from the SNL parody?

You guess correctly. The fact that the real Connery died first fits in to the theme of it hand in glove.

In the SNL parody, Sean Connery's character hates Trebek. It's ironic and kinda sad that they both passed away in a short time frame.

If I may underline the stance that Biden has chosen:
Facing adversity, forbearance and graciousness is the humane way.

He did it to get out of a family session with a therapist because his live-in daughter's marriage is falling apart, and instead of imperiling his own relationship with his daughter by staying home he is instead thrust into an adventure fighting sewer rats as a cyborg rat-pickle before eventually battling a drug lord in a mansion alongside Danny Trejo.

That's why it's top-tier comedy. Family Guy would have stopped with Peter turning into a pickle in a five-second flashback bit.

Army helicopters get anglicized native names. The Comanche, Apache, etc. don't call themselves that in their tongue. Still it seems bizarre give how they basically tried to wipe out the natives entirely more or less. They still have it the worst of any minority today in the US - and here. Huh, I guess Red Lives don't matter.

Three years ago, a “Rick and Morty” joke about szechuan sauce led to McDonald’s bringing back the sauce for a non tie-in promotion that ended up being a bit of a fiasco after demand easily outweighed supply.

Really? I had heard McRaunchy's was going to do that but I never heard it had actually materialized. Must have been limited markets because I never saw or heard of it around here. Did anyone actually manage to try it?

Cool shots of the ISS. Wish I could walk on the sun like Supers or Doc Manhattan.

That was an outstanding shot. Good on those wildlife officers!

I had a ton of Kenner Star Wars toys as a kid. Shoulda hung on to those.

Yeah, they really just need to change that to the Music HOF as it really hasn't anything to do with Rock'n'Roll in a very long time. I know I couldn't care less.
