When Alex Trebek Says That Death Is Coming For Us All

By 

Steve Brightman

A reasonable

first impulse is

to yell “what is

shut the fuck up,

Alex?” at the top

of your not-pink-

any-longer lungs.

Then, much like

every other time

that smug bastard

opens his mouth,

you realize that

besides having a

damn fine research

team, he also has

the answers right

in front of him.

And I don’t care

how many TV

dollars you have

in front of you,

no daily double is

going to bring you

back from that

deficit.  

Quiz question:

What is the first thing you probably feel like yelling at Alex Trebek?

Shut the fuck up!

Shut the fuck up!

Suck it, Trebek!

Suck it, Trebek!

All of the above, with tears in your eyes.
