emanciptation proclamation

Watch This Unfortunate Final Jeopardy! Loss

In second place, with a wager of $3,000, Thomas was surely confident in his Final Jeopardy! answer. Just one problem: In his haste, he added an extra t to the words "Emancipation Proclamation," making it "Emanciptation Proclamation" instead. This makes us sad. He knew the answer! From those of us who continue to make typos every day (specifically yours truly), this should count, Alex.

* This post originally stated that young Thomas (who we originally misidentified as Skyler) could have won had he answered correctly. That was incorrect. We still think the poor kid should have been cut a little slack.
