Game show time

Alex: Well here we are on the set of Jeopardy and we are ready to start. Mirth, since you lost the last round, we'll let you start this one. Choose a category.

Mirth: Thanks Alex! You don't know how excited I am to be here. I think I'll start off with "Seriously? WTH?" for $100.

Alex: Okay Mirth, here you go...These people tend to cover the entire back side of their vehicles with religious stickers, especially ones saying things like "WWJD?" and "Do unto others"

Mirth: Who are the people most likely to cut me off in the line at school pickup?

Alex: That's right! Mirth, choose again.

Mirth: I'd like "Seriously? WTH?" for $250.

Alex: This large bank has a particularly bad habit of changing their minds at the last moment, causing heartbreak and headache for people trying to buy a home.

Mirth: Who is Bank of America?

Alex: Right again! Go ahead Mirth.

Mirth: I'm going to stick with what's working Alex. I'm going to go with "Seriously? WTH?" for $500.

Alex: Sounds good! Here's the clue...This is the only spot in the yard that has been painstakingly planted with beautiful flowers.

Mirth: Where is my dog most likely to dig?

Alex: Awesome! You're on a roll! Next category!

Mirth: Well, again, I'm just going to stick with what I know Alex. So, "Seriously? WTH?" for $1000 please.

Lots of bells and whistles go off.

Alex: Looks like you've hit the daily double! And this one is a picture...

Mirth (looking closely): Hmmm...what did my dog eat last night and then throw up at 5:30 this morning?

Alex: Great job Mirth! You got it! Looks like we've got a sweep this round. Stay close, we'll be right back with even more great categories!
(turning to Mirth) Is your dog really so dumb that she ate a bunch of rocks?

Mirth: Yeah Alex, she really is that dumb. Oh wait, was that supposed to be in the form of a question?
