Fans of “Saturday Night Live” will remember Turd Ferguson on its parody version of “Celebrity Jeopardy!”
Fiction finally became real life on Wednesday night, as the real Alex Trebek was forced to say Ferguson’s name during “Final Jeopardy.”
The Category : Oscar Nominated Songs – “This song from a 1999 animated film about censorship had a word censored from its Oscar performance.”
The answer was “Blame Canada” from “South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut.”
A contestant named Talia, who had only $600 left, didn’t come up with the right one. But she did offer the next best thing: “What is the love ballad of Turd Ferguson?” followed by a “hi mom”.
This forced Mr. Alex Trebek to finally say ‘Turd Ferguson’ on the real Jeopardy! The Twitterverse blew up and the internet has been raving about it all day long!
Ferguson is a pseudonym for Burt Reynolds, or at least as he was played by Norm Macdonald on “SNL.” You can check him out at the 3:40 mark in the video below!
