Today's One Cup Question "Delivers" (Pun Intended)

Today's One Cup of Java Challenge question:

It was on this date in 1973 that FedEx, then known as Federal Express, delivered its first package. In the world of trivia, FedEx has an important honor. "What is FedEx?" was the incorrect question that ended Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings 74 game winning streak. The answer that day on Jeopardy! was "Most of this firm's 70,000 seasonal white-collar employees work only 4 months a year." Your One Cup challenge this morning, on April 17th: provide the correct Jeopardy! question; that is - name the company where many of the seasonal employees only work 4 months a year.

Your One Cup answer: H&R Block

Bonus Blog Trivia: After Ken Jennings lost, FedEx ran newspaper ads, claiming it was the "only time FedEx was the wrong answer."
