Endless Jeopardy is a Twitter bot that hosts a hilarious trivia game where everything is procedurally generated and the money doesn’t matter.Endless Jeopardy was created by Neil Cicierega, known for the irreverent Potter Puppet Pals in the early-mid ’00s (Dumbledore!), the video game Monster Breeder, an album consisting of Smash Mouth mashups, and various other bizarre Twitter bots like Tim Allen Quotes. It is precisely as obnoxious as it sounds.

The Endless Jeopardy bot algorithmically generates a new, nonsensical question every hour that somehow sounds just like Alex Trebek in our heads. For example: “Peacocks are known in Austria by this Marxist Name.”

Whoever’s comment receives the most likes wins $2,000 (in fake money) and the next four most liked answers earn progressively less fake money. At the end of the week, the account tallies up who earned the most fake money, presents it in a leader board, and resets the playing field.

Check out some of the sillier questions and responses below.

Endless Jeopardy has been around since February of this year, but it’s recently grown in popularity on Twitter, catching the attention of outlets like Kotaku. We recommend jumping in the game and testing your comedy chops on complete strangers for no tangible reward.

If you have a strange Jeopardy itch that needs scratched, check out our 2008 Jeopardy! review for PS3. Hint: it’s a bad game, and doesn’t even feature Alex Trebek for some unholy reason.
