Do you know the difference between being completely blind and being legally blind when not wearing glasses? Good. You know who doesn't? Lysette Tidwell, a contestant on tonight's episode of Jeopardy! Tidwell? More like Tid-LOLWAT. All aboard the fail boat!

Before it came crashing down on her, Tidwell was on top of the world—she was the reigning champion; she sat comfortably in second place, with lots of time left to catch up; she had a first name that was almost as fun to say as "whilst." Tidwell was swell.
