Even ‘Jeopardy’ Is Using Taylor Swift as a Punchline Now [PHOTO]
Wow, long-running game show ‘Jeopardy’ is basically giving away the answers these days. Particularly when one of their questions threw some shade and made it apparent that the name they were looking for was oft-lovelorn Taylor Swift.
Just cut the contestants a check already, Alex Trebek.
The joke, which appeared on the March 13 show, gave the contestants the clue:
2009’s Best Female Country Vocal went to her for “White Horse”, where (SHOCKER!) she goes off on an ex-boyfriend.
We eagerly await T-Swizzle’s next magazine interview to see if she’ll rail that there’s a special place in purgatory for game shows that use breakup songwriters as a punch line.
But for what it’s worth, this is not the first time ‘Jeopardy’ has referenced pop-culture. The program previously had a whole board dedicated to Carly Rae Jepsen‘s ‘Call Me Maybe’ and a category that mocked Mitt Romney’s “binder full of women” comment from the 2012 presidential debates.
