“Jeopardy!” champion Ken Jennings is back at it on Twitter. This time, he’s got a joke for all of the introverts out there.
It appears that Jennings recently made a trip to a restaurant or an otherwise service-oriented establishment. That’s what we’re led to believe by the picture he posted, at least. In any case, there was a sign that requested guests limit their interaction with the staff to “one party at a time.”
Ken Jennings being Ken Jennings, the “Jeopardy!” icon made a fun observation using the polite request.
“I’m always saying this!” Jennings wrote in the tweet.
He’s leading us to believe that the request is literally asking people to limit their schedules to a single party at a time. It’s especially relevant given the nature of the holiday weekend. People often have several obligatory stops to make at a handful of barbeques before Independence Day is through.
Now, we already know that Ken Jennings is an introvert, given his long history of Twitter revelations.
So considering his personality, it makes perfect sense that he’d want to limit his exposure to a single party at a time. The social demands of a single party, let alone a day full of them, can be tough on people. This is apparently the case for “Jeopardy!” star Ken Jennings.
Of course, some of his Twitter followers took their own cracks at the “one party at a time” prompt.
“The party is wherever I am, so I can only attend one at a time,” one Twitter user wrote.
“I also dislike divided government,” another added, taking the joke in an entirely different direction than Ken Jennings initially intended. The political spin works nicely, however. Credit where credit is due.
The ‘Jeopardy!’ Star Had a Busy Weekend Singlehandedly Winning the Seattle Mariners Game
The “Jeopardy!” legend himself was honored at his hometown Seattle Mariners game over the weekend. The franchise had him come in to throw out the first pitch at the game. And Jennings came ready.
He was suited up in a Mariners jersey which, of course, had his name emblazoned across the back. But the real power move came from the number he was sporting. He was rocking jersey number 74. The very same number of consecutive “Jeopardy!” games he won on his legendary streak in 2004.
It’s his lucky number. And if you asked him, the jersey pulled more than its weight.
“Absolutely taking credit for this,” Jennings tweeted following the Mariners’ dramatic comeback victory on a walk-off.
Ken Jennings was in attendance, adorned in his lucky number that night. Maybe it’s not so crazy to think that he helped manifest the victory? The only way to truly test the theory is to have him throw the first pitch out, wearing that jersey, at every home game.
