Oh dear, I do believe I have the vapors.
This page contains content that is not safe for work or other locations with the potential for personal embarrassment.
Such as: Foul language in the description and content of the revised audio section.


The irreverent trivia party game that launched a global phenomenon, rereleased ad nauseum in various multi packs.

Revised Audio

In most YDKJ games, typing the response "Fuck You" to a Gibberish Question causes the host to react in a number of ways, insulting the player, removing money, changing the player name etc. The original, unexpanded release features the host Nate Shapiro swearing back, but the question pack expansion (later sold all in one merged in as You Don't Know Jack XL) has all of the offending audio rerecorded to remove this.

File (original) Description File (Version 1.05 (Question Pack/ XL)) Description
The first time in a particular game session the easter egg is triggered, these play in order (although the sample 3 doesn't play in all cases, leaving the playername unchanged).
The same basic themes here, but only referring to 'flipping off' the host.
The second time around, it's acknowledged, but ultimately nothing happens.
Still nothing, but a profanity free nothing.
Third time around, the game is killed off to a black screen. Keep trying to hit the keys, and the last clip will play.
It's a sorry state of affairs that a game can't give as good as it gets, but that's the business for you.

A patch to restore the original response to the new releases has been made. Just replace gibber.srf in your files with the version here: mega:///#!7o9W2KLJ!u-EYmsc7dGh2kmRewLHi1aXaWbyWOJJmooQ9vCfgGGU
