Jeopardy fail

Yikes

Teacher’s night on Jeopardy, & one of the categories is “alphabetically second.” Meaning the correct answer is the second item in an alphabetized list.

Question: What is the second book of the Pentateuch?

Answer: What is Deuteronomy?

Three teachers onstage, and not one of them knows the sequence “Genesis, Exodus.”

  1. Was “What is Deuteronomy?” the answer the teachers gave, or the answer that was purportedly correct? I get Exodus no matter whether I go alphabetically or in the usual order.

    Were they elementary teachers?

    1. You’re right !

      I think they were high school teachers ….

      The wrong answer a teacher-contestant gave was “What is Deuteronomy?”

      I assume she (I’m remembering a female contestant … ) didn’t know that Exodus comes after Genesis — but now that you bring it up, it’s a strange question, isn’t it?

      Genesis
      Exodus
      Leviticus
      Numbers
      Deuteronomy

      IN alphabetical order:
      Deuteronomy
      Exodus
      Genesis
      Leviticus
      Numbers

      Good thing I’m not on Jeopardy….
