How Final Jeopardy Made Me Think: "Dumb And Dumber"

Today I was watching Jeopardy tonight and the final Jeopardy category was “Brand Names” and the clue was:

To feature it’s “Strong Enough To Stand On” product, in 1965 Shwayder Bros, Inc changed it’s name too?

The way it was worded made me think of Brawny paper towels, but unfortunately it was wrong. The correct answer was “Samsonite”. I thought, “Samsonite, I was way off”. The reference was to the movie Dumb and Dumber.

Harry: What’s her last name? I’ll look it up.
Lloyd: You know, I don’t really recall. Starts with an S! Let’s see. Swim? Swammi? Slippy? Slappy? Swenson? Swanson?
Harry: Maybe it’s on the briefcase.
Lloyd: Oh, yeah! It’s right here.
[He reads the manufacturer’s name, which is Samsonite]
Lloyd: Samsonite! I was way off! I knew it started with an S, though.
