A Jeopardy contestant was flat-out hosed this week because of his accent, specifically the way he pronounced "Elaine" as in Elaine Benes from Seinfeld.

The question in the "Name TV Role" category was essentially "Julia Louis-Dreyfus' character on Seinfeld," and Fidelito Cortes responded, "Elaine."

Host Alex Trebek said this was incorrect, however, and moved on to another contestant who guessed "Benes." The other contestant was deemed correct.

Trebek then corrected Cortes on his pronunciation. Check it out:


Viewers took to Twitter to bash the show. Some choice Tweets:

The first government shutdown in 17 years, which is in effect as of this morning, has people everywhere pointing fingers and/or scratching their heads.

House of Turds

In a nutshell, the federal government is closed after Congress could not reach an agreement on the funding to keep it running past September 30.

The GOP-controlled House passed a short-term funding bill conditional upon a repeal of a medical device tax and a one-year delay in the implementation of Obamacare.

Clever way to block policy labeled as toxic since it passed in 2010?

Pointless, desperate political gambit? All depends who you ask.

The Democratic-controlled Senate and President Barack Obama weren't having any of it, and with both sides at an impasse and no end in sight, here we are.

A couple in Missouri shared some huge news last week. Literally. Jessica Helmers, gave birth to a 13-pound, 8-ounce baby girl named Karsyn on Friday.

"I was tickled," said Jessica. "I still can't believe she weighed over 13 pounds."

Doctors confirmed it as well. Karsyn Raleigh Helmers was born and weighed in at 13 pounds, 8 ounces. She was delivered by c-section right on time.

The new father, Wesley Helmers, said he still can't believe the numbers.

"They called me in there and did all the other measurements," he said.

"They wanted me to see the weight and as soon as it said 13 pounds, 8 ounces I was like, 'Umm, how am I going to explain this one to the bunch.'"

A good question. As for Jessica, she says she's looking forward to arm workouts with Karsyn. That should help shed the baby weight quickly, if it's any consolation ...

In a harrowing new viral video, a group of bikers chase down a man out for a Sunday drive in Manhattan, dragging him out of his vehicle and beating him up in front of his wife and child.

The ugly incident started when 33-year old Alexian Lien accidentally struck a biker who cut him off on the Henry Hudson Parkway.

From there, a four-mile chase ensued, with as many as 30 riders on sport/dirt bikes going after Lien down the highway.

They catch up to him at a red light in Washington Heights and the video - taken by a biker with a helmet camera - clearly shows one of the men smashing the driver's side window of Lien's Range Rover. His two-year old daughter is in the backseat.

Lien, who works as director of the e-commerce firm Skrill.com, was punched and slashed in the face with a knife, according to police.

If the following report is true, Octomom has met her match. An Iraqi woman in her 40s, who is already the mother of seven, is expecting 13 more babies.

Yes, she's pregnant with 13 babies. Six sets of twins plus one. A baker's dozen of buns in the proverbial oven. Thirteen fertilized eggs inside her, people!

Positive Preg. Test

The unnamed mom of seven is said to be in her early 40s. Octomom Nadya Suleman, for comparison, was in her mid-30s when she birthed children 7-14.

The woman's husband, Fadhil Al Azawi, a farmer from central Iraq's Salahuddin province, said medical tests and images clearly show(ed) 13 fetuses.

You're only as young as you feel. At least that seems to be the attitude of one grandmother, who is very much alive on the dance floor in the video below.

She moves her hips. She humps the air. She thrusts like a madwoman possessed and gets LOW like an octogenarian Miley Cyrus ... fittingly, to "Blurred Lines."

We're not just being nice to an old lady, either. She's got skills!

You have to admit, her ability to salsa dance has remained undiminished with the passage of time, and the same is apparently true of her taste in men.

Watch what happens as she fixes her eyes one guy seated at a table and moves in on her target, who seems confused, amused and a little perplexed:

Wilson Kipsang didn't just win the Berlin Marathon this weekend.

He set a new world record in the distance, shattering the old mark by an amazing 15 seconds.

However, the Kenyan star was unable to totally celebrate the achievement at the finish line because some idiot ran out of the crowd and broke the tape first.

Even worse? The moron was wearing a shirt that promotes an online escort service, as you can see in the following footage:

It's unclear at the moment whether German police arrested the rule-breaking attendee.

In semi-related news, Pamela Anderson will be running the New York City Marathon this year. We doubt she'll break any record, though.

Unless... is there a mark for Most Jiggles Over A 26.2 mile Distance?

Marina Shifrin recently quit her job in the coolest way ever - with a video of her dancing around the office and describing exactly why she needs to quit.

The 25-year-old, who previously worked at Next Media Animation, posted this to YouTube with one simple message for her boss: I'm outta here!

In the video, she dances around the offices of the Taiwanese animator (you've seen their hilarious news reenactments) at odd hours of the night. She laments:

"For almost two years I've sacrificed my relationships, time and energy for this job. And my boss only cares about quantity and how many views each video gets."

"So I figured I'd make ONE video of my own."

Almost every girl who dreams of getting married envisions her father walking her down the aisle, but no one ever envisions such a scenario as this.

Just moments after Alan Bates, 65, escorted daughter Charlotte Galbraith, 36, to the waiting arms of her husband to be, he died of a massive heart attack.

Father and Daughter

Even more tragically and incredibly, Bates was in the middle of giving his speech to the newlyweds when he fell to the ground and could not be revived.

The bride was quickly rushed from the room as a group of wedding guests, including an off-duty firefighter, did what they could to help revive Bates.

Unfortunately, they were too late. The family accompanied Bates to a nearby hospital and he was declared dead. For Charlotte, there are no words.

This is even crazier than the Miley Cyrus pregnant rumor ... and actually true.

A Texas woman was recently arrested for pretending to be her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend on Craigslist and soliciting sexual encounters for her ... seriously.

Samantha Weber, 38, faces a felony charge of online impersonation for the alleged Internet hoax she perpetrated against her former man's squeeze.

Crazy Woman Mug

Authorities say an account registered to her was used to place a fake ad on Craigslist that solicited men to come to Heather McCarthy's home for sex acts.

An investigation was launched after McCarthy complained to police about a series of men arriving at her home on April 18 for the sexual encounters.

A Harris County (Tex.) Precinct 4 Constable’s Office detective “obtained subpoenas and search warrants from Craigslist, AT&T Wireless and Google.”
