I had a dream a few months ago that The Hunger Games were mixed with Jeopardy.
The competitors had to survive in the wilderness, of course, but they also had to know a lot of random information about rivers in Europe and Chopin’s favorite food and how many toes Marie Antoinette’s cat had.
Alex Trebek was the first to go, obviously, because he’s a massive twit and kept correcting one of the competitors’ pronunciation of French words. “It’s leviOHsa, not levioSAH.” After that he got a bit of a stab in the jugular, and the games continued.
I don’t really know what happened next, because I never remember much after Alex Trebek dies in my dreams (it happens a lot, people). I just wanted you all to know that this is a thing that could happen. We could mix Jeopardy and The Hunger Games and it would probably be rather fantastic. Though I do wonder what would happen after we slaughtered some of the more intelligent people in the country.
Maybe we should just leave it as a dream. The world doesn’t need this.
