Talia Lavin was asked a Final Jeopardy question on Wednesday night's episode which she clearly didn't know the answer to. Rather than taking a wild guess, or even just leaving her screen blank, she decided to troll the game show host. 

 

The category was Oscar-nominated songs, and the prompt was, "This song from a 1999 animated film about censorship had a word censored from its Oscar performance."

First of all, it's funny that a song from a movie about censorship had a word censored for the performance. Second, Lavin's answer was awesome. Trebek read aloud her handwritten response, "What is the love ballad of Turd Ferguson. PS Hi Mom :)."

Turd Ferguson was the name used by Norm McDonald in his Celebrity Jeopardy sketch with Will Ferrell on Saturday Night Live in the 90s.He called himself that because it was a "funny name."

The audience seemed to appreciate the joke, and burst into laughter. Never one to be phased, Trebek took it in stride and moved right along.

As for Lavin, she may have walked away with nothing from the game show, but she still feels like a winner. She told HuffPo (where she used to work as a staff writer, "I love Norm Macdonald, and think giant styrofoam hats are funny ... I'm honored to be trending on [Facebook] with my homeslices Iggy Azalea and Jeb Bush."

"I won the Internet," she continued. "Which is way better than many thousands of dollars."
