As you know, I am an avid Jeopardy! watcher, not a Johnny-come-lately-for-Watson watcher, but a bona fide fan. I watch it every night. Not for Alex Trebek’s shockingly consistent cardboard personality or even to make fun of the lame ‘story time’ with the contestants – You named your dog after your mother-in-law? Hilarious! What a trickster you are! – but because I think there’s something pleasingly masochistic about shouting the wrong answers at the television to very distant people who are undoubtedly faster and smarter than I am. Monday night, however, I was vindicated. During the teen tournament, this annoying teenage girl Raya, who would practically high-five herself for every correct answer she gave, did this weird thing – and the heavens sang. Not only did she lose, but she’s also forever going to be known for slowly muttering the words, “Pussy furry,” on national television. Watch the clip below. Seriously. You need this.
Watson is pissed. Consider his 15 minutes over.
