Back in 2004, JEOPARDY! contestant Ken Jennings became a game show phenomenon: over five months, he won 74 consecutive games, and answered over 2,500 questions correctly (both U.S. records). Which got us wondering… could he handle your etiquette questions? Turns out he’s pretty good at that, too.
In his new book, Because I Said So!: The Truth Behind the Myths, Tales, and Warnings Every Generation Passes Down to Its Kids Ken demystifies and debunks all matter of parental “wisdom.” For us, he offers tips on when it’s appropriate to be a smart-Alex… and then throws down his game show gantlet.
We’re always looking for new etiquette questions. Would you be so kind as to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org? Thank you very much.
