Alex: North Korea is very much in the news this year. And this young lady, Andrea Korte, from Washington, D.C., is one of the few Americans to have visited that country.
Andrea: Well, not very far into the country. But I visited South Korea last march, and when I was there, I took a tour of the DMZ.
Andrea: And it's a great tour. They bring you into a big conference room and they let you scatter around before telling you that, "Oh, hey, everyone over there on that side of the room..."
Alex: You're in North...
Andrea: "You're in North Korea."
Alex: Oh, yeah.
Andrea: But they let you come back, though.
Alex: Okay. And then they show you the flags that they had the big controversy over. We put a bigger--
Andrea: Yes. The battle of the big flagpoles, yes.
Alex: "My flag is bigger than yours."
Alex: "No, not today, 'cause we got a bigger--"
Alex: Been there, done that.
Alex: Matt Johnson is from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It's kind of nice if you can work to pass a law about a holiday, right?
Alex: And you did that. Was it a holiday named for you?
Matt: Uh, I wish. No. Uh, it's a holiday--Lancaster was the capital of the nation for one day during the American Revolution.
Matt: So our friends did what every god-fearing American should do--we marched down to the mayor's house and demanded that he declare it a holiday, and then the next year, they passed a law to make it an official holiday, so...
Alex: So it's a local holiday?
Matt: It is.
Alex: And are, uh, all of the government offices closed on that day?
Matt: We're working on that right now.
Alex: Oh. Okay. With pay, of course!
Matt: Yes, yeah. That's right.
Alex: Yes, all right.
Alex: Cindy Vanderbur from Indiana is our champion. What's this about--you were once a chicken... tester, or taster in a lab?
Cindy: Yeah. I work--I live really close to Louisville, Kentucky, which is home of a pretty large chicken franchise restaurant thing.
Cindy: And, um, they have a taste test lab, where they bring people in to try all the new products and rate them.
Cindy: And for about a year, I got to--to work in that lab.
Alex: I hope you voted for the original recipe. The old original recipe. That was the--
Cindy: We never knew what was what.
Alex: Yeah. I can tell. I can tell.
Cindy: I still don't know what's what.
Alex: The old recipe was the best one.JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
