Ken Jennings is the 99%
byJames FurbushonOctober 27, 2011
Never let it be said that Ken Jennings doesn’t have a wicked sense of humor. This is my favorite line: “Then a huge multinational corporation poured millions of dollars into a computer that would demolish me on national TV, robbing me of my livelihood as a quiz show contestant.”
Well played Mr. Jennings, well played. At this point, Jennings is probably more like the 30%, but we’ll let it slide, because he’s still technically part of the 99%. And also because he run on Jeopardy! remains one of the five greatest human achievements in the last decade. That’s not hyperbole either.
