Jeopardy! – Moses & the (formerly) Mustachioed One

Last time I caught Jeopardy! [airdate 6/23/09], there was an entire category as a biography on Moses, which I was pleased (as a stand-up theologian) to have gotten the entire category (“It’s All Coming Up Moses”) save for the last question which was: “As the rest of the Jews entered the promised land, Moses died aged about 120 on this mount.” The answer would be “Mt. Nebo,” but how the hell was anyone supposed to know that? All three contestants got it wrong, and I felt vindicated.

Because I can’t find the episode in question, here’s a clip of the first three-way tie, circa 2007.
