Lawrence Welk.

Also Jesus is King by Kanye West, although not completely surprising that they didn't get that one.

Also, at the end, Brad wrote "you're the best Alex" which was polite and appropriate, but given the question called for a name, I would have gone with "Who is a person who has never been in my kitchen?"

I took the Jeopardy! online test last night, I got 44 or 45 out of the 50 questions right, so hopefully that's good enough to get me an audition.
Anyone else taking it this time around?

I don't know enough pop culture/fine arts trivia (nor care to know) to have any shot on the show. They need more math categories.

I'm taking it... the fine arts questions are always my downfall. Going to have to take it tomorrow night at 11, so I should be fresh

I'm not going to bother taking the test unless I'm in a place where I feel confident I could actually win one or two games live. My knowledge base is just not strong enough in Jeopardy categories at the moment.
