from the this-is-patentable? dept

theodp writes “Microsoft was granted a patent Tuesday for “conducting an interactive competition” that pits a player against a celebrity in a head-to-head trivia game in which a player tries to gain more points or answer more questions correctly than the celebrity to win a prize or be designated a ‘true fan’ of the celebrity. An exemplary embodiment of the invention is showcased at MSN’s Outsmart site by Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. “
