There's a fine line in comedy.

Ebony and Ivory? Funny. In fact, I'd give you, *very* funny.

Living in perfect harmony? There, you stepped over the line. Not so funny.

Real reason for Vinson Mastiff showing up on Google Trends last night? At 8pm Eastern last night was the Jeopardy online audition and one of the questions was "Vinson Mastiff is the highest peak of what continent?"

Although you only had about 15 seconds to answer, I still think two people could have worked as a team and speed googled the main term and got the answer in during that time.
