A contestant who appeared on "Jeopardy!" Wednesday night gave a final answer that has "Saturday Night Live" (SNL) fans going crazy on social media.
For the "Final Jeopardy" question, host Alex Trebek asked contestants to name the song "from a 1999 animated film about censorship."
Talia decided to dedicate her answer to a well-known SNL character from the show's "Celebrity Jeopardy" skit, played by Norm MacDonald.
"What is the love ballad of Turd Ferguson. PS Hi Mom :)," she wrote.
As his job requires, Trebek read the answer out loud, and the crowd laughed along.
MacDonald, who plays Burt Reynolds for skit, calls himself "Turd Ferguson" because, "it's a funny name."
Talia may not have won the game, but needless to say, SNL fans loved the answer and took to Twitter to praise her.

Someone on Jeopardy didn't know the final answer so they answered it "Turd Ferguson". That's got to be the best answer of all time #SNL— Michael (@Eager_Beaver29) September 17, 2015

Apparently, Turd was part of the GOP debate Wednesday night, too.
Hands down, Turd Ferguson won the #GOPDebate last night.— Jules Li (@FabFreakaNature) September 17, 2015
