Jeopardy has been on the air for 50 years*, and it’s really nice to know that some things never change. Oh, wait. Did I say “nice”? I meant “rage-inducing.” (Sometimes I get those confused. Stupid lady brain.) Because while we all love to bask in some nostalgia on occasion, nothing can ACTUALLY stay the same for 50 years without ending up a total dated embarrassment. Last night Jeopardy seemed to have misplaced the cards for their “Embarrassing Sexist PR Nightmare” category, so they went with the next closest thing “What Women Want.” Surprisingly (to no one), the category was not full of questions about access to health care, societal respect, or Mel Gibson movies. Instead, we got clues about vacuum cleaners:

Levi’s jeans (because they make our butts look good, duh):

and Pilates (see above, double duh):

And don’t forget Sleepytime tea! We love that shit.

(The clue here was “Before bed, a cup of this herbal tea from Celestial Seasonings; that’s the logo, seen here.”)

The problem, obviously, is that everyone involved in producing Jeopardy seems to be 100% focused on Alex Trebek’s mustache, with no brain room left to realize that this is REALLY FUCKING OFFENSIVE. Not to worry, though, Twitter was at the ready, prepared to immediately go totally, appropriately ape shit.

I’ll take Go Fuck Yourselves, Jeopardy for $1000, Alex.

*Okay, yes, 30 years in its current incarnation, which is still a long-ass time.
