What are the Hugo Awards?
So last night I got a message from my sister. She’d been watching Jeopardy and I guess this one kind of took her by surprise. Thanks to her heads up fans got screen shots and video when it aired in the next time zone. (it was the first time in years that I’ve regretted cancelling cable)
Originally, because my sister didn’t have a chance to catch the exact wording, fans were asking on Facebook if the question was biased. My response was that I doubted it, because unlike most of the news media, Jeopardy still has fact checkers.
Some Puppy supporters didn’t like how it was phrased, with “scandal” having negative implications. Personally, I like it. Especially the part where they used “Rocked”. Damn right. Rocked you like a hurricane. The scandal was the part where the CHORFs ran a lying media smear campaign, and handed out wooden butt holes, while block voting No Award to keep out barbarian Wrongfans having Wrongfun.
But the awards totally aren’t biased. They’re prestigious. Move along. There’s nothing to see here.
Someone else on FB wondered if former Jeopardy champ, Social Justice Warrior, and all around douchebag Arthur Chu would have something stupid to say about this? Probably… But everything Chu says is stupid, so that won’t be surprising. Luckily this happened when he wasn’t on, because then Chu would’ve had to call in a fake bomb threat against Alex Trebek or something.
My original goal was to expose the bias, insular, cliquish realities of the supposedly prestigious awards to the rest of the world. We’re on Jeopardy… Yeah… Going to say that worked. 😀
But did the contestants get it right?
EDIT: Oh look. Our inevitable link back from File 770, as Glyer-50-Hugos hopes desperately for relevance and traffic. Hey, everybody. Wave at the doofuses.
How many doofi… Let me check the stats… Top 10? Keep scrolling. Top 20 referrers? Keep scrolling. Holy shit. How lame is your traffic, Glyer? No wonder you keep linking to everything I write! 😀
