    A contestant named Julian from Indiana University must be feeling pretty stupid right about now. And Hoosiers can't be feeling too proud. Julian had the chance to win $1 million Friday night, had the puzzle fully solved, and then lost because he pronounced Achilles like “A-chill-us.” Because of that mistake, the show decided not to give him the victory and instead, one of the other contestants who know the “mythological hero” got the chance to steal and did. (To win the full $1 million he would have had to overcome some other hurdles as well.) But alas, poor Julian' disastrous...

    Move over, political pundits. Even game show hosts are stepping out to poke fun at Obamacare. Chicago's Pat Sajak, famed host of "Wheel of Fortune," finds the confusion regarding the Obamacare law both maddening and hilarious. After Kathleen Sebelius testified before Congress yesterday, Sajak took to his Twitter account to have some fun, cleverly relating it all to a new method of buying vowels on his show.

    A BATTERED shoe worn by a Hungarian tourist in Sydney has sparked an investigation into a syndicate cheating top casinos across Europe. Two Belgian police officers will fly to Sydney later this month to study the shoe design which they suspect could be behind the multi-million dollar European fraud. Four years ago, Sydney detectives arrested Hungarian tourist Laszlo Sendor Kovacs after he won large bets at a Star City casino roulette wheel. Casino security personnel became suspicious of the then 59-year-old gambler constantly tapping his right foot under a roulette table. Police found a Maxwell Smart-style microcomputer hidden in the...

    Was anyone else watching Wheel of Fortune Thursday night? The phrase on the board was completely exposed except for two letters. It looked something like this: CNN ANCHOR _OL_ BLITZER What happened next was hilarious. The contestant guessing letters couldn't figure it out and guessed "D". Now that's pretty bad, but it gets worse, the next contestant didn't know what it is either and guessed "S". After the second person couldn't figure out the puzzle, host Pat Sajak (who has a show on FOX News) chimed in "well, I guess that confirms the ratings!
