A contestant on the popular game show “Jeopardy” was asked Friday to name a flower pictured that shares a disparaging name with “people on the political left.”
Her answer proved to be incorrect, but some will argue that it was the most hilarious answer ever on a show that first aired on March 30, 1964.
Here’s a video of the hilarious moment:
And while “pansy” was the wrong answer, the consensus on social media suggested it was still a winner!
Here’s sampling of responses from Twitter:
Best jeopardy ever! #pansy
