LOS ANGELES, June 27 (UPI) -- Ari Voukydis went out with style Thursday when, in the face of defeat, he gave the most comical answer of the night to a question in the game show "Jeopardy".

The final clue of the night was, "In 1891, this European said, 'Perhaps my factories will put an end to war sooner than your congresses.'"

Voukydis, a teacher from UCB and a writer for Buzzfeed, knew he was not going to win so he decided to give a great response.

"Who is this handsome man?" he wrote next to an arrow pointing up at him.

The answer was Alfred Nobel, the engineer and businessman who established the Nobel Peace Prize.
