There’s clever and then there’s crossing a line.
Jeopardy! doesn’t often go into sports categories, and when the program does … the contestants can be hilariously inept.
But there’s nothing funny here.
The program included a category Wednesday simply entitled “Golf.” That’s pretty nice for golf fanatics who rarely get to use any golf trivia skills when watching Jeopardy!
But the clue for the $200 answer turned out to be a really messed up play on the concept of slitting one’s wrists (which is used as a method of suicide).
That’s not cool. At all.
Maybe next time, there should be a little more thought put into how these clues are phrased.
