'Jeopardy': Alex Trebek Laughs Over Pygmy Goat Death (VIDEO)

It takes a lot to make "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek lose his cool ... a lot being a pygmy goat's death.

In the "Jeopardy!" episode that aired on Thurs., July 12, 2012, Trebek did his obligatory check-in with the contestants, and learned one is dedicated to Dana Scully from "The X-Files." However, being super into a fictional character wasn't what made Trebek breakout into laughter, it was learning about one contestant's pet pygmy goat from college.

Trebek questioned Laura on her reasons for having a pygmy goat -- she had it for the cuteness factor -- and quickly learned the goat was all about eating inappropriate things: cat's fur, chocolate, candles and the thing that did it in, Quikrete. After asking the amount of Quikrete, Laura calls Trebek insensitive and then, giggles ensue.
