Shakespeare said that the betrayal of Brutus was the “most unkindest cut” but for social justice warriors the cruelest cut might be puns.
On Friday, the popular game show Jeopardy excited leftists when it announced a “Stay Woke” category, but their excitement quickly became scorn when they found that it was a play on words.
“Stay Woke” is a category on @Jeopardy tonight… S/o to the culture! ✊?

“Stay Woke” is a term used, mainly by millennials, to describe their supposed struggles against white supremacy, the patriarchy, homophobia, transphobia, the police and, essentially anything that has them feeling aggrieved.
And when they found out the category was a pun, and was actually about stimulants that help people stay awake their anger was apparent.
#Jeopardy is like, “Let’s do a category called ‘Stay Woke’ and then only ask the three white, male contestants about sleep habits.”
