The Culture Of Now

    I live in West Philadelphia. When people discover this fact about me, they usually make some joke about me spending my days on the playground or guys that are up to no good making trouble in my neighborhood. What a perfectly hilarious and original joke that doesn’t get funnier every time I hear it! Having said that, Alex Trebek can rap the Fresh Prince theme song to me any time he wants, as he did on last night’s Jeopardy!

    Forget the summer of George.  It’s the summer of Alex . The Jeopardy! host continued his tradition of singing hip-hop songs with this wonderful rendition of Rihanna’s “Umbrella.” Eh-Eh-Eh.

    For over 30 years now, Alex Trebek has been a constant presence in our homes as the host of Jeopardy, where he acts as the world’s most lovable know-it-all. In that time, contestants have given him some pretty funny responses. Since Trebek celebrated his 75th birthday this week, it seemed like the perfect time to look at some of the funniest responses of all.

    On Wednesday evening, a Jeopardy! contestant named Talia won the hearts of the internet with her Final Jeopardy answer “What is the Love Ballad of Turd Ferguson?” referencing Norm Macdonald’s swaggering  Saturday Night Live impersonation of Burt Reynolds to a straight-faced Alex Trebek and laughter-stifling audience. As we  pointed out last night , it was “one of the finest moments in the history of this or any other game show.” But it gets even better because the reason why Trebek didn’t have a reaction to the joke was because Alex Trebek does not know who Turd Ferguson is.

    John Oliver took some liberties while onstage at Sunday evening’s Emmys ceremony . Oliver presented the award for Directing in a Special Movie or Limited series, but first  took a moment to fire  some amusing shots at Alex Trebek:

    “A limited series is, of course, a series that only runs for a limited time. Although, let’s be honest.

    The last time we played this “Phone Booth” trivia game on The Tonight Show , Kevin Spacey took on Jimmy Fallon and ended up being trapped with a wide selection of guest stars, including NBA star Karl-Anthony Towns, Mae Whitman, and Big Bird. It must’ve been a success because it came back tonight with Shaq and Hugh Jackman stepping inside the booth for some trivia.

    Sometimes game show contestants are the only truly funny people on television. Case in point: Becky Sullivan, a contestant on an episode of “Jeopardy!”, couldn't think of the right answer to a Final Jeopardy! clue about flowers. Her response might be the funniest answer in the show's history. The clue: “The flower pictured here is called this, also a disparaging term for people on the political left.” Sullivan's guess: “What is a pansy?” Nope.

    In what may have been a preemptive strike at The Simpsons , Stephen Colbert’s final Colbert Report sign off closed with a classic Colbert toss back to Jon Stewart, who then closed the show with a nostalgic Moment of Zen.
