Jeopardy denies Sonic clue, Dankey Kang was Photoshop'd, not available at Best Buy

Believability is the key component to a good prank - even if it's perpetrated with PhotoShop. When I first saw the Dankey Kang image allegedly from Jeopardy, I wondered how someone could confuse Sonic and Donkey Kong... and not even know it's not Dankey Kang! Not everyone is knowledgeable about gaming, but I would think that anyone who made it onto the TV show, would possess such knowledge.

I don't watch Jeopardy and have only seen it a handful of times, but it's such a pop-culture thing that this meme works across a lot of boundaries. I've also seen a similar one with a Zelda slant. I love that it's take off to the point where someone might be seeking this rare Dankey Kang NES game. Can't complete your NES collection without it! ;)
