Anyone ever figure out what Robin meant by "Who is Pon?" on Jeopardy?
I've been working on it and almost have the answer.
Not a fucking clue...
But she has an IQ slightly below HPE, so she probably doesn't know either.
Something to do with "corn pone", but couldn't spell pone correctly. Corn pone had no relevance to the question, don't know why her feeble brain went there.
Someone who has never been in my kitchen
She was going for "pone," as in "corn pone." The question was:
His work of the 1930s & '40s is so associated with sentimentality that his name is often combined with "corn"
She didn't know the director, so she guessed at the term they were referring to. Julie Bowen did the same thing, guessing "Ball," as in "Cornball." The correct answer was Capra, as in Capra-corn.
My daughter's actual first grade homework.
Arguably a dumber Final Jeopardy loss for Robin was in 1997. The Category was 'Mountains' and the question was:
Range of mountains where Danny Kaye, Alan King & Rip Van Winkle gained fame
Remember that Robin lives in New York and works in comedy. Her answer: "What is the Alps?"
The "answer" was "Critics often paired this director's name with the suffix -corn to describe the kinds of movies he directed in the '30s and '40s."
The "Question" was "Who is Frank Capra". The "answer" is alluding to the fact that people used to make fun of Frank Capra's movies for being corny, so they derided his movies as "Capra-corn".
In Robin's defense, it was a strangely worded, and difficult question.
Robin misunderstood, and thought they wanted a descriptive word for a movie itself. Robin was trying to suggest "Corn-pone". But she either spelled "Pone" wrong, or lost confidence in her answer and didn't finish writing it. That is why she wrote "pon".
She also doesn't know the difference between prefix and suffix. Because she is stupid.
Remember the weakest dink crew game?
She didn't know what 199 + 199 was or who the first man on the moon was.
