Alex Trebek and the Apocalypse

Answer: a member of Mensa, this trivia guru hosts a quiz show and will be involved with the Apocalypse.

Question: Who is Alex Trebek?
Trebek, before the Great Schism in which he shaved his 'stache.
Trebek has brought the world close to disaster before; after shaving his mustache in 2001, the four horsemen of the apocalypse took note of this unnatural phenomenon, mounted their steeds, and began riding to Earth. Luckily, Pestilence checked his calendar and realized that the world was not actually supposed to end until 2012.

Now, Trebek is hosting a showdown for man vs. technology, with IBM's Watson. Watson is a Jeopardy playing computer that makes Deep Blue look like Deep Purple. Smoke on the Water is also a sign of the Apocalypse.
Deep Purple, a popular chess team
Watson is expected to defeat champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, who are humanities best adept trivia masters in categories like Potent Potables. Another war of the nerds.

See for yourself!

If computers are taking over our game shows, it won't be long before they send robot Arnold Schwarzeneggers to the past to destroy humanity... and turn us into human batteries. Just like the Mayans predicted.
