Final Jeopardy Question: Who is Ayn Rand?

July 13th, 2010

Tonight on Jeopardy, Alex Trebek posed quite an objectivist answer to the Final Jeopardy Topic of “American Novelists”

Question: An advocate of Capitalism, in 1982, she was laid out beside a six-foot dollar sign made of flowers.

Answer: Who is Ayn Rand?

All three contestants got it right.

Were I on the show, I would have instinctively thrown the match, just to answer “Who is John Galt?”

H/T Josh N. for the tip.
