I know, I know. You’re thinking “Jeopardy’s still around?!” I thought the same thing. Yes, even Jeopardy gets political these days, but this one’s actually pretty funny. The Final Jeopardy answer was, “The flower pictured here is called this, also a disparaging term for people on the political left.”
The question will…cause you to squirt milk out of your nose or whatever…

“I have a feeling that you may have found a way to insult liberals in this country,” host Alex Trebek predicted before revealing the response from Becky Sullivan.
“What is a pansy,” she wrote.
“Yep, you found a way to insult liberals in this country,” Trebek said.
The correct response was a bleeding heart.
What makes this even funnier is that the woman in question is also a producer for NPR.

Expect her to have a meeting with human resources at NPR on Monday. Receiving massive amounts of federal funding and government grants, NPR has never been a bastion of Conservatism. I’m sure some of their
audio-ambien hosts have been triggered and requested a sit-down. It would be the educational thing to do.
SIDENOTE: Anyone else find it hilarious when SJW hipsters complain about the “corporate media, man!” and instead decide to rely on a news source (like NPR) which entirely relies on big-government in order to receive continued funding? No conflict of interest there. Sure corporate media has its problems, but you know what’s even worse? Government media. Just ask Canada or Venezuela. Or, listen to NPR for about half an hour. Then try to avoid the urge to swallow a large, sharp knife.
