Norm McDonald must be so pleased with himself right now. Last night, a Jeopardy! contestant named Talia Lavin finally did what the world's been waiting to see since the 90s and made Alex Trebek say "Turd Ferguson" by way of her Final Jeopardy answer: โ€œWhat is the Love Ballad of Turd Ferguson?โ€

The name, of course, comes from a 1996 Saturday Night Live sketch in which Norm McDonald as Burt Reynolds changes his name on his podium from Burt to Turd Ferguson... because it's funny.

The question that we have to assume she did not know the answer to was: "This song from a 1999 animated film about censorship had a word censored from its Oscar performance."

The answer is "What is 'Blame Canada' from South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut. Still, guesing correctly couldn't have felt as good as bringing SNL's version of Trebek and real life-Trebek that much closer together.

Jeremy Glass is a writer for Thrillist and wouldn't mind hearing Trebek utter the phrase "The Penis Mightier."
