What is "embarrassing"?

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar recently appeared on the TV quiz show Jeopardy! during a set of "Power Players" shows, where 15 celebrity contestants faced off throughout the week.

Abdul-Jabbar appeared to be doing pretty well against Dana Perino of FOX News and David Faber of CNBC.

He was fine, that is, until Perino picked a new category and host Alex Trebek read what seemed to be an innocuous question.

Abdul-Jabbar's answer prompted Trebek to say, "Remember, Kareem, this is a family show."

Watch the clip below to see Abdul-Jabbar's answer and what the audience thought, with a nod to Yahoo! Sports for posting the video.
