On Jeopardy last night there was this nerdy little girl with a completely pathetic look. Stringy, limp hair, dorky glasses, perma-white pasty skin, etc. She had a smart ass attitude though, so I didn't like her. But one part of the show totally cracked me up.

Alex: Blah blah blah, Led Zepplin song, blah blah hobbitses, blah blah mountains?
Dork Girl: MORDOR!

LOL! The answer was Misty Mountains(of course), but it was so funny hearing that out of her...

That's odd. I watched Jeopardy last night for the first time in years (literally), but I didn't see her at all. I guess they showed a different one here.

Did she pronounce it with the rolled Rs and slight break between syllables?

Locutus of Borg would be so proud ...
I watched it last night for the first time in years, too. And I did see her. Apparently I missed the "MORDOR" part, though, and I shall never cease being filled with regret, dammit.

Too funny that so many of us were watching last night. Hive mind, anyone?

WHAT IS Mordor?

What was the actual wording of the answer? Because the song title isn't "Misty Mountains." It's "Misty Mountain Hop."

It was not looking for the song title.

It was something weird like 'Tolkien fans might also know something about these mountains featured in a Led Zep song'

Not quite, but that was the general idea. They were looking for the word Misty. Definitely not Mordor. ;)

I tuned in for about ten minutes last night - strangely enough it was the ten minutes that featured this post. The answer wasn't to give the song, but the mountains that LZ did the song about. I don't remember the exact wording.

It was something along the lines of, "Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings are very familiar with these mountains from a Led Zeppelin song." It wasn't referencing the song title, but the mountains.
