#5304: NO, you dildo!

Mrs. Fungus and I have been watching old game shows. It's mindless entertainment, it's fairly inoffensive, it doesn't take a lot of time, and we get a lot of laughs out of it.

Yesterday it was Match Game 78. The setup went something like, "So-and-so was so dumb when a politician asked him for support, he sent him a [blank]." When the contestant was first asked for his answer, the man answered, "A duck!" Most of the celebrities on the show answered "jock strap" or "athletic supporter" which--it must be said--was not exactly a match for "a duck".

Tonight we first saw a couple eps of Card Sharks, hosted by a very, very young Alex Trebek. Then came Sale of the Century. One of the questions was, "At ninety degrees north latitude, you will find..." and the guy answers, "The Equator!"

Me: No, you dildo!

Mrs. Fungus: AHHHH HA HA HA HA HA HA

The all-time best one, however, comes out of the mists of time. I was eating dinner at a friend's house and they habitually had the TV in their dining room tuned to Wheel of Fortune so they could root for "Bankrupt", and this one woefully confused woman attempted to solve "YO_R _OOSE IS COO_E_".

My friend: "She'll probably say something like, 'Your moose is cooked!'"



Everyone in the dining room: ... HAAAAA HA HA HA HA HA HAHAHAHAHA

I like how Al seemed almost embarassed to continue playing.

Nothing else to report at this time, other than "tired"...as usual.
