Good morning! Today is Friday, April 9, 2021 (Season 37, Game 140). $88,825 has been raised thus far for the North Valley Community Foundation, thanks to Aaron Rodgers’ guest hosting stint. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category American Literature):
One edition of this 1930s novella shows a farm within the silhouette of a rabbit
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Dennis Chase, a biotech project manager originally from Hyannis, Massachusetts
|Jennifer Leong Evans, a stay-at-home mom from Camas, Washington
|Pasquale Palumbo, a financial services professional from Hawthorne, New York (1-day total: $6,799)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Pasquale took down a 3-day champion in Brandon yesterday; if Jennifer or Dennis were paying attention, they’d have noticed that Pasquale didn’t bet to cover second place in Final Jeopardy yesterday. That might make for a more interesting Final Jeopardy! today.
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to abide by physical distancing guidelines and when you are not able to do so, properly wear a mask. Ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

Rabbits feature prominently in John Steinbeck’s famed Of Mice and Men; Lennie, one of the main characters, has a dream of being able to tend rabbits on his farm. The novella in general is told from the perspective of Lennie and George, two displaced migrant ranch hands going from farm to farm in search of work in Great Depression California.
