Highlight between the brackets to see the "question"........

[ what is a rabbit's foot? ]
2. ($1200)-The utilization of this at weddings is supposed to ensure the couple's fertility ...
[ what is rice? ]
3. ($2000)-this man founded a religion, so go ahead and rub his tummy for luck ...
[ who is Buddha? ]

Double JEOPARDY- Fruits and Vegetables
4.($800)- It's a "cooler" and more common name for Crisp-head Lettuce ...
[what is iceberg? ]
5. ($2400)- The Satsuma, a nearly seedless variety of this, is typically canned and goes
great with Chinese Chicken Salad ...
[what is (mandarin) orange? ]
6. ($4000)- The name of this vegetable and pie ingredient may come from the Latin for
"root of the Barbarians" ...

It took me a while but I finally got Final Jeopardy along with the rest. Save one for the Gipper?

BTW did anyone watch the final for the teachers? Who won? I had company and missed it. Can't folks stay home and watch Jeopardy?

FYI - the clue was the Latin ...............

"The Common Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) is a species of rabbit native to south west Europe (Spain and Portugal) and north west Africa (Morocco and Algeria)."
