What does news aggregator Fark have that Digg, Twitter and all the other fancy Web 2.0 sites lack? Aside from actual profits (which is no small feat), Fark has appeared as a category on Jeopardy twice. In November 2007, contestants had a little trouble with the headline-based questions, but tonight, when the second installment aired, one contestant (perhaps a Fark reader herself?) managed to get 4 out of 5 questions correct. How about you?

The questions — all chosen by Jeopardy’s producers — were quite funny, although Fark owner Drew Curtis told me the question taking a crack at the Pope was “a little stronger than I would have expected Jeopardy to go, considering their middle-America audience. But good on ’em, I would have picked it.”
