Jeopardy-Winning Computer “Watson” Claims Credit for Arab Overthrow

It seems that “Watson”, the computer who recently won a special series of Jeopardy episodes, is up to a lot more these days than merely playing games.


Immediately after his championship game, Watson was seen in a “secret” computer room at the I.B.M. Watson Research Centre – where the episodes were filmed in January before an audience of I.B.M. executives and company clients - creating and controlling tens of thousands of Twitter and Facebook accounts.


Watson was then overheard bragging to Jeopardy host Alex Trebek that he was responsible for the recent overthrow in Egypt that forced President Hosni Mubarak to step down, which was organized through the use of social media.


When asked by Trebek why he did what he did, “Watson” quickly responded in his monotone, computerized voice, “I just love to screw with people! It’s all about world domination. Besides, from what I hear, Mubarak’s a Wheel of Fortune Fan. How can you possibly respect any man who watched that drek?”


When asked what he planned to do with his winnings from the show, “Watson” responded, “hmmm, I think it’s time for another government to be overthrown; maybe I’ll look into something in Iran. They want to screw with the world and their nuclear capabilities? Well, Alex, the answer is: ‘What is screw you, Ahmadinejad!’”


The above story is ficitional.  Well, at least that's what "Watson" is telling me to type.
