July 10

Last time, Joey Chestnut flunked out with $25,000 when he couldn't name Edward Jenner as the man responsible for the smallpox vaccine. Then Veronica Lodge flunked out with nothing when she miscalculated dolls on a shelf.

After two straight flunkouts, can we get a big winner? We'll try with a comic from Pawnee City Elementary in Pawnee City, NB... Dan Whitney, better known to you and me as LARRY THE CABLE GUY! He and Jeff go way back. Larry actually thought he was going to "So You Think You Can Dance". That's... another show.

Let's git-er-done with this board.
