When Alex Trebek isn’t being a bully, he’s practicing Future’s flow. Last night’s episode of Jeopardy! gave us this little gem as Trebek recited a clue:

Trebek: This Canadian rapped, “Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman, them boys up to somethin’/ Uh, uh, uh, I think I need some Robitussin.”

Contestant George: Who is Drake?

You almost want George to be wrong, because of how smarmy he was in his answer. The humbling will have to come some other time; those were indeed bars from Drake and Future’s “Jumpman,” which appeared on last year’s What a Time to Be Alive.
