Someone sent in this interesting question:
\"I wonder how many of the 10 people who make it onto each episode of the \"Who Wants To Be a Millionaire\" game show as semi-finalists are librarians? I have yet to hear any of the persons who make the final cut, landing in the \"hot seat,\" identify themselves as librarians, but when they introduce the semi-finalists, I always play \"Spot the librarian\" (calling out, \"I bet she\'s a librarian. And she looks like a librarian.\"). It is, after all, a trivia game, and as a reference librarian at Arizona State University said, doing reference is like playing Trivial Pursuit for a living. \"
I think I remeber this question somewhere involving the contenstants on Jeopardy as well, anyone seen that one?
