This is the best Final Jeopardy response ever Ari Voukydis on "Jeopardy!" (Credit: Screenshot)

There have been some inadvertently humorous (and brutal) moments on game shows like “Wheel of Fortune.” But last night’s comedy factor on “Jeopardy!” was of a different caliber.

Ari Youkydis, a comedian, UCB performer and instructor, and BuzzFeed writer, was stumped by last night’s Final Jeopardy clue (as were the rest of the contestants). His answer, however, was priceless.

The category was “Science and Industry,” and the clue was: ”In 1891, this European said, ‘Perhaps my factories will put an end to war sooner than your congresses.’”

    Sonic calls this a "gourmet twist" on a classic. I am not so, so fancy, but I know that sprinkling bacon and cheddar cheese onto a tube of pork is not gourmet, even if you have made a bun out of something that is theoretically French.

    Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Bites Pizza

It is a smoked cheese bratwurst, covered in butter Teriyaki grilled onions, Maitake mushrooms, Wagyu beef, foie gras, black truffles, caviar and Japanese mayo in a brioche bun.
