“Jeffpardy” Is The Gameshow We Deserve, But Not The One We Need Right Now



Many of us know and love “Jeopardy,” whether we watched in the early days, or recently started testing our trivial expertise. A YouTuber combined his love for “Jeopardy” and the name “Jeff” for our viewing pleasure. Enjoy.

Jeff. It’s a name. A first name. Wikipedia says Jeff is the short form of the English given name Jeffrey and Jeffery. It also derives from a medieval variant of Geoffrey. In German, the meaning of the name “Jeffrey” derives from an older German name that means district, traveler, or peaceful pledge. That’s right, Jeff is super cool.

“Jeff” is gaining popularity. In fact, Jeopardy is riding the “Jeff” train lately. Not actually, but a “Jeff” and “Jeopardy” super-fan combined the two together to make “Jeffpardy” and the Internet, especially Reddit, thanks this individual dearly. Please, will someone make “Jeffpardy” an actual show? On the other hand, let’s not because Jeff.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Jeopardy and comedy came together. We must not forget the brilliance that is Saturday Night Live’s Celebrity Jeopardy series

Oh, right. We also received the magical gift of Alex Trebek cozying up with Shaquille O’Neal inside a telephone booth on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
