Jeopardy : The Bardfilm Category

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

Good luck!

  1. All I know is that I ran directly to a copy of the play about an ancient king of Britain.

    You could say I made a Cym-bee-line to that play.

    Also, I don’t get the Toyota one. Troilus and Corolla?

    p.s. I’m not that bad, am I?

  2. The Toyotas one makes no sense! The only thing I can think of is Coriolanus = Corollas …

  3. David Bogie says:

    $200: Hamlet
    $400: Comedy Of Errors
    $600: King Lear
    $800: The Tempest
    $1,000: Coriolanus
