I'll take 'My Favorite April Fools' Day Joke' for $1000

Posted on

Happy April Fools’ Day, PopWatchers! I’m going to leave the hoaxes and whoopee cushions to you guys and instead present an example of my preferred method of April fooling: totally harmless pop culture shenanigans! Like when Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek switched hosting duties for the April 1 episodes of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! back in 1997. I’m more of a Jeopardy girl, so behoooooold:

After the jump, double and final Jeopardy, because I’d hate to leave you hangin’:

Not that it matters much, but I think Pat Sajak does a pretty good job. Anyway, as anyone who has read Prisoner of Trebekistan knows, Jeopardy! looooves holiday-themed episodes. Study hard, PopWatchers.

What’s your favorite pop prank?
