Lisa: Calling all Brainiacs.

What should I ask Ken Jennings when I interview him for the library newsletter? Should I try to do something humorous (like the Onion's A/V Club) or high-concept (like questions in the form of answers, Jeopardy-style)? I'm afraid I will come across as either too boring or too dumb.

So...what do you want to know?

I think you should find out how fame has changed him. Also, what products he would endorse if the opportunity should arise.

Deal or No Deal. FOR OR AGAINST!!!

You should ask him what Bob Saget is like in real life since he appeared on his new game show 1 vs 100. Which from what I observed is a combo of Deal or No Deal plus Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

I want to know if he's gotten a lot of fan mail. Or marriage proposals.

I think we all want to know answers to the classic questions (that have plagued mankind these many years). Things like: What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow? And: How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

row vs. wade?

None of you people are helpful. At all.

The thing is, we are. We really, really are. How about this: ask how he's able to answer questions about, e.g., R-rated movies like "40-Year-Old Virgin," what with being a teetotaling, church-abiding, scripture-reading good boy.

Didn't he get beaten pretty quickly on that new 1 vs 100 show last week? What was up with that? I'm jealous that you get to interview him, that would be so fun.
