who is President Rushmore?

George Mason University made it to the big time last year when the men's basketball team reached the Final Four. Further glory was bestowed upon my alma mater tonight when the following answer appeared on "Jeopardy!" during their College Championship: "A 7-foot statue of this colonial statesman overlooks the campus of GMU, the university named for him." Appropriately, the answer was in the category "Big Men on Campus."

Making fun of absurd Jeopardy responses -- one of my favorite pastimes. The most preposterous one of all time would have to be this one from a Final Jeopardy round a year or so ago:

Clue: On Aug. 6 & 7, 1961, Gherman Titov did this 17 times; the previous record was one.

One contestant's response:

What is Swim the English Channel?

Think about that for a moment; let it sink in.
