A contestant on Jeopardy decided to get creative when he didn't know the correct response during the final round on Monday.

The question (or really the answer) was "A Christian hymn and Jewish holiday hymn are both titled this, also the name of a 2009 Tony-nominated musical." The contestant cleverly wrote, "Kinky Boots" as his response. Kinky Boots is a Broadway musical with lyrics and music written by Cyndi Lauper. It is about a shoemaker and a drag queen.

The correct response was Rock of Ages, which none of the contestants figured out. Luckily, Mr. Kinky Boots won anyway.
