I don't really know what sort of people are working in the writer's room at Jeopardy!, but I sort of think that someone must have known that someone would have answered "donkey punch". There's a Wikipedia article for the (hopefully) imaginary practice and everything. However, this does start preparing the game show world for more R-rated content, including a seemingly inevitable future for Wheel of Fortune when they run out of phrases to use as puzzles and have to open things up to profanity.
