cnn's anderson cooper goes 'up in smoke'

***
YEP! YET ANOTHER CNN ANCHOR GETS DEMOLISHED ON JEOPARDY
... THIS TIME BY THE TALENTED CHEECH MARIN!

You can post your own punchlines if you'd like! :-)

Cheech Wipes Out former CIA Trainee Anderson Cooper



Or here:

Cheech and Anderson on Jeopardy

One hundred points to anyone who can tell me what Cheech character said this in what movie?

"Weigh the anchor? How much does it weigh? I don't know, I forgot! Ha, ha! I saw that in a movie once!"

Two hundred points for anyone who who can tell me what the original movie was that Cheech's character saw that in. :-D

Loved the exchange between Anderson and Cheech (who, btw, is freakin' brilliant: too many people, Anderson included, confuse him with the character he created).

Isn't the quote from The Corsican Brothers, their ill-fated Alexander Dumas interpretation?

That was me, btw. Don't know why, but the damn net logged me out.

Yes, I could tell it was you. Your exact and erudite style is unmistakable. :-D

Yes, a talented and intelligent guy, much underestimated and underappreciated as are so many of us because of the way we look. :-D

No, good guess, but the answers were actually hinted at in my subject line and icon.

The character was Pedro La Parcas (at least that's what it said on his driver's license - ha ha) in his C&C debut film Cheech and Chong - Up in Smoke and the line he was quoting was Stan Laurel's from the last true Laurel and Hardy movie, produced by Hal Roach, Saps at Sea.

No cheap shots at Cheech - the guy is an icon... and so often people don't realize that it can take a brilliant mind to portray slightly dim ones convincingly. From interviews he comes across as rather sharp.

Jeopardy is great at these celebrity mix ups where they mess around with the audience perceptions of the players.
