I’m flipping through the 80-something channels that we have trying to find something entertaining to watch, and the only decent thing on is Lingo. Although the Spanish channel was a close second, I decide to watch Lingo.
The teams go back and forth for awhile with puzzles like “chair”, “cough”, and “retro”. Then comes a puzzle starting with an “S”. I won’t bore you with their guesses because the best part came after the answer was revealed – “screw”.
The host (Chuck Woolery) had been making comments about his staff influencing the puzzles – including his staff making a mistake on spelling “adieu” wrong. His co-host (Shandi) makes some comment that I didn’t catch, and Chuck responds with something to the effect of “it’s not the verb, it’s the noun.. as in the object”.
I guess the producers realized where the conversation was headed and the microphone levels are turned down, so Shandi’s last comment is inaudible.
I’m sure it was a good one too.
