Let Me Tell You About My Dream

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.

  1. The world DOES need this.
    Can you write a script and I’ll shoot it (no pun intended) as a short film?
    (I really just want an excuse to dress up like a college professor and run around in the woods.)

  2. I love how Trabek got just a little bit of a stab to the jugular. I’m just glad that Will Ferrell as him got destroyed by Sean Connery in Celebrity Jeopardy. I never laugh harder than watching those old skits.

      1. Yeah, it was pretty fun to dream. And then towards the end, it was down to 5 people and it started to look like How to Train your Dragon.
