Best. Finale. Jeopardy. Answer. EVER.

And it’s not even close.

During a recent final round of this classic game show, a contestant named Talia Lavin did not know the answer.

So, with the category Oscar-Nominated Songs, Lavin wrote down the following response:

"What is the love ballad of Turd Ferguson?" throwing in a "p.s. hi mom" for good measure.

Turd Ferguson, of course, is a name made famous by Burt Reynolds on the Celebrity Jeopardy skit from Saturday Night Live.

It’s unclear whether or not Alex Trebek gets the reference, but it is clear this is now the best final Jeopardy answer ever. Sorry, this other answer!
