Final Jeopardy category: National Songs
Final Jeopardy clue: “Originally performed in 1745, this National Song occasionally has had to change its pronouns.”
I would have listened to the Jeopardy “think” music, scratched my head, and written on my answer screen “What is…???”
The allegedly correct response: “What is God Save The Queen” (or “God Save The King.”)
ATTENTION JEOPARDY STAFFERS: Ask any 5th or 6th-Grade student; “King” and “Queen” are nouns, not pronouns.
I guess the fact that I’m a grammar Nazi does not always serve me well, and would have cost me big-time here, but still….
The world is going to hell.
