Jeopardy! and Wally Byam

Ok, I heard about this..... night of Jan 29th I believe....

"Very funny thing of Jeopardy! last night. The question (answer) was about which brand of trailer was related to the Wally Byam Caravan Club. All three contestants stood in shocked silence and didn't have a clue!"

Ok, now this was a $1,000 question and they are supposed to be difficult.

I will love the light for it shows me the way....yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.

Yes, except if you are a "white box" friend of ours. They get the "benefit" of hearing all about Wally Byam, his caravans and fantastic Airstreams from us.

I was out in my trailer watching the show as allways, it is my favorite gameshow. I was very surprised, but I got it correctly. I even formed my answer in the form of a question.

Either that or said something like "What is the Land 'Yatch'" Wally 'Bynam' of course!

Ooohhhh, sorry...that answer is incorrect!

How many Airstreamers (and indeed Forums members!) could Jeopardy stump if they asked about the Great Gyam? FYI -- a now closed eBay Airstream where the seller was trying to build up the brand and its inventor, the great Gyam... Many books short of a library if you ask me.

More Jeopardy -- how many know of southern comedian Justin Wilson's butchering the pronunciation of "yach-it", like in "the hoidy-toidy types down at the yach-it club." I really can see the word without smiling inside.
