Watch Jeopardy! Contestants Flunk a Lizzy Borden Question
Man, those goddamn Jeopardy! contestants, they think they’re sooooo smart. Well, this oughta take ’em down a peg or two: the June 19 episode of the long-running gameshow included a question (well, an answer, but you know what I mean) about Lizzy Borden’s 2018 album, My Midnight Things, and not a one of ’em could so much as venture a guess as to the answer (or, er, the question). WHAT A BUNCH OF DUMB LOSERS!

In the contestants’ defense, the question was part of a category called ‘Music I’m Not Familiar With,’ so they weren’t really expected to know who the hell Lizzy Borden is.
This is not the first time Jeopardy! has dipped into the metal well for material. Artists ranging from Slayer to Slipknot to Mötley Crüe to Rob Zombie to Five Finger Death Punch have all been featured on the show before. Somebody who works on that show must like metal.
