Jeopardy! Round

(Alex: And finally, a new category for us on the program, [*]. Now, what this means is that you will say, "How do you or how do we make a sound?" For instance, if it were the sound Lawrence Welk used to make at the beginning of his program, or the sound Cork makes as it's leaving the champagne bottle, you would say, "What is [pops] that?" [Laughter] Okay? This may prove to be a great embarrassment to you and to us, but we'll find out.)
