“What is mustard?” That was the ‘question’ to the ‘answer’ on the iconic syndicated game show, Jeopardy! The episode that aired Tuesday, December 4, 2012, featured that golden question-answer.

The category was “A Bit of Honey” and the question-answer was worth $800. The contestant who answered it correctly was a lawyer named Jennifer.

“I’ll take A Bit of Honey for $1,000, Alex…”

We are asked from time to time how things like this come about and how we know we’ll be on shows like this.
