Jeopardy is an American game show in which the host reads out an answer, and the contestants need to buzz in to say what the question is.

On Friday's edition, a contestant named Tom gave what we assume to be one of the creepiest answers in the show's history in response to this definition:

Tom quickly buzzed in and said "what is the age of consent?" - the answer is actually the far less worrying "what is puberty?"

The slip-up was almost as bad as the time a contestant on American game show Family Feud buzzed in with the answer "gerbil" when she was asked to name something a doctor might pull out of a person.
