The Salt Lake City engineer was finally beaten in 2004 by challenger Nancy Zerg after one of the longest winning streaks on the show & was able to leave more than respectably with his cool $2.5 million.Â And now after all that time, Jennings is doing a bit of Jeopardy! & Alex Trebek bashing.
He posts, “I know, I know, the old folks love him. Nobody knows he died in that fiery truck crash a few years back and was immediately replaced with Trebektron 4000, I see your engineers still can’t get the mustache right, by the way.”
“You’re like the Dorian Gray of syndication. You seem to think ‘change’ means replacing a blue polyethylene backdrop with a slightly different shade of blue polyethylene backdrop every presidential election or so.”
After a brief spell, Jennings added a half-hearted apology stating, “We regret the insinuation that Mr. Alex Trebek is a robot, and has been since 2004.
“Mr. Trebek’s robotic frame does still contain some organic parts, many harvested from patriotic Canadian schoolchildren, so this technically makes him a ‘cyborg,’ not a ‘robot’.”
Ken has the ability to tickle one’s funnybone, but I wonder why he’s concentrating on this particular Canadian cyborg situation & not vacationing alongside a beauty in St. Tropez.
Alex Trebek is a robot, not a cyborg & I do miss the old stache.
