What would be your 'jeopardy' story?

For those who don't watch jeopardy Alec introduces them all at one point of the show where he says something like, 'next we have john who is a computer programmer from Dallas, who ran the boston marathon for the first time this year... tell me about that' then the guy talks about it for a few seconds.

So if you were on national tv tomorrow, what little tidbit would you share about yourself?

I honestly have no clue what i would say, i lead a pretty dull life.

I once defended 4 high school girls against a rabid dog using only a trombone.

Alex: "Our next contestant is Tom. After an illustrious Navy career he spends his money collecting DVDs and spends his time in an 'otter farm'. What exactly IS an [finger quotes] 'otter farm'?"

Tom: "Alex, a better question would be 'What exactly is an [finger quotes] 'otter farm' NOT?"

Alex: [confused look]

Tom: "I'll take 'worst.intro.ever' for 100, Alex"

Alex: "Uh, our next contestant is Geoff...."

"Next we have Otto, a computer programmer who appearantly once shot a man in Reno. Why did you shoot him, Otto?"

"Just to watch him die, Alex. Just to watch him die."

"Well, that's awfully disturbing sir, I wish you good luck in round 2."

"You'd better hope so, Trebek."

My Jeopardy story would be that I actually passed the test for Jeopardy when they were in Portland a few years ago.

My family was on vacation in the Netherlands and we were at this tourist trap called Madurodam - the Dutch Queen, Beatrix, happened to stop by for a visit. They cordoned off the pathways for her as she walked through and when she was w/in about fifty feet of us my dad said, "Son, this is as close as you will ever get to royalty."
