Badly devised Jeopardy categories

Last night, on the teen tournament, there was a category called, "An 'F' in History". All of contestants shortened the category slightly when they asked for it. So, this is what it sounded like:

Overconfident Boy #1: Let's go with effin' History, Alex.

Overconfident Boy #2: I'll take effin' History for 400.

Quietly confident Girl, who eventually trounced the boys: Let's try effin' History for 1000, please.

I think to get more kids to take history as an elective in high school, they should change the course title to something like this. ("What you got next period, dude?" "Effin' History." "Awesome!")
