Trebek: ‘Whenever people to go temple… they sing Kinky Boots!’

Oh, wit. Your bite can be so luscious, especially in the land of Jeopardy!
On yesterday’s episode, Alex Trebek posed the following question to his three contestants, including defending champion Choyon Manjrekar:
A CHRISTIAN HYMN & A JEWISH HOLIDAY HYMN ARE BOTH TITLED THIS, ALSO THE NAME OF A 2009 TONY-NOMINATED MUSICAL
Have at it. I’ll wait.
The answer: What is “Rock of Ages?”
And yet, champion or not, Manjrekar didn’t know it. So he erred on the side of humor, which rocks.
