It’s all good vibrations after this hilarious “Jeopardy!” mix-up.

On Wednesday night’s episode, contestant Halley Ryherd shocked fans by stumbling on a clue in the first-round category “Chuck D, Times 3”.

While most of the questions centred on Charles Dickens and Charles Darwin, one seeming gimme was all about rapper Chuck D.

“In the 1990’s Chuck D began fighting the power in this hip-hop group with Flavor Flav, a man who always knew what time it was,” host Mayim Bialik read.

Despite many viewers knowing the answer to be Public Enemy, in a moment heard round the internet, Halley went with the Funky Bunch, the group led by Marky Mark, better known today as Mark Wahlberg.

Clips of the flub quickly went viral, with many laughing at the idea of the group being called Chuck D and the Funky Bunch.

Halley joked on Twitter that she thinks she’s “ready to forever by the person who mixed up Public Enemy and Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch,” adding that it’s “#mylegacy.”

She even got some comfort from other former “Jeopardy!” contestants who made very obvious mistakes on the show and have been living the moment down for years.

But if it’s any consolation, Chuck D himself took to Twitter to cut Halley some slack, saying “Everybody don’t know everything,” and adding, “But the sad thing is not knowing those other Chuck Ds,” referring to Darwin and Dickens.

That, of course, didn’t stop the memes and jokes from flowing on social media, where “Jeopardy!” and hip-hop fans alike had plenty of fun with the gaffe.
