Jeopardy! categories: "Joy" Division, Warsaw, She's Lost Control, C/D?

My mother and I are watching Jeopardy! and it's the second round and the last three categories are, well, "Joy" Division (where the answer has "joy" in the title), Warsaw (question about the city), and She's Lost Control (about female characters in literature and cinema going nuts).

Utterly classic, very subtle. Neither of us realised those were the topics until the contestants would say, "I'll take 'Joy' Division for $600" or "I'll take She's Lost Control for $200, Alex."

Wait wait, there are five categories on Jeopardy, so what are the other two?

Haha, I also revived a Joy Division thread because of this:

Am I the biggest Joy Division fan?

The other two were "flower names" and I don't remember what the other one was.

I SWEAR this is not an April Fool's joke. My mum witnessed it, too...I wasn't hallucinating...

Having been waiting for a guy to come and take me by the hand I can only assume this is a dodgy joke. Which bit of San Fierro should we meet, kid?

It's not a dodgy joke. The programmers for the show were probably being funny. It was great...

There must be some hep writers on the show, because they did the same thing with Smiths references about a year ago; I think it was only two categories, and one of 'em was "The Queen Is Dead."
