Alex Trebek Is Clearly Not an 'Arrested Development' Fan

I’ll take “Members of Dr. Fünke’s 100% Natural Good-Time Family Band Solution” for $800, Alex.

This blue man from “Arrested Development” was a clue on last night’s “Jeopardy.”

Who is Tobias Fünke?

You’re never going to get back the two seconds it took to read that terrible intro gimmick, and I’m really sorry about that. Honest. But yes, everyone’s favorite Frightened Inmate Number Two was a clue on “Jeopardy,” and now the Internet is upset. Why? BECAUSE THAT WALKING OLD WOMAN’S DRY DREAM TREBEK PRONOUNCED HIS NAME WRONG. (I’m more disappointed at the umlaut being left off “Fünke” than I am about the mispronunciation, though.) Gee, he really Britta’d that! Oh wait, wrong show. Trebek, um, really pulled a Homer? D’oh! If only there was an “Arrested Development” reference that could succinctly define this situation, and how much Trebek BLUE it, man. He’s sure got a mess on his hands. Come on, Josh…I guess I’m just distracted thinking about how he would have said “analrapist.”
