I recently learned that there’s a database of over 200k actual Jeopardy questions floating around the internet, just waiting for a geek like me to download it and search it for Shakespeare.
And guess what! I found the Bardfilm category! No, not a “Bard on Film” category (though I’m sure that’s in there). I’m talking about bad Shakespeare puns.
I was going to do a post on Shakespearean questions that didn’t really have anything to do with Shakespeare, but then I saw this category and thought, this reminds me of someone.
I HAVEN’T READ SHAKESPEARE, BUT…
For $200, ‘This tragedy has got to be set in a small village, hence the title‘.
For $400, ‘Obviously, it’s a funny play about bad baseball players‘.
For $600? ‘It sounds to me like it’s about the leader of lascivious oglers‘
Now the $800 answer… ‘It’s about this guy who hires non-permanent secretarial help for his office‘
And finally, for $1000, the answer: ‘Toyotas! Yeah, that’s it; it’s about Toyotas‘
