Game Show Boo-boos


A couple of nights ago, I was focused on the evening news on TV when I heard my younger brother, Josh, laughing to himself while surfing the net. My focus broke away from the telly and shifted to my brother.

You see, Josh isn’t the laugh-out-loud type of guy when he’s all alone, nor is it often that he breaks into laughter while facing the computer.

Initially, I didn’t give it much thought—I figured he was probably reading a really funny post on Facebook or Failbook (I pointed him to the site because I had a lot of laughs while reading stuff there)—though I did get curious.

I decided to take a peek at whatever it was that he was reading and saw a list of questions and answers.

Right then I thought, what could be so funny with Q&As? Then I read the title: “Real Answers from Wowowee contestants. Sad but true.”

I decided not to read the rest, certain that the text contains the same idiotic type of Q&As as featured in Wowowee. I thought if I read it through and through, I would waste five or ten minutes of my life that I couldn’t possibly get back.

And that was that. Or so I thought.

Last night, while playing NBA 2K11 on my PS2, it was my younger sister’s turn: Ann was laughing to herself while surfing the net.

I sat beside her, looked at the monitor, and there it was. The exact same page Josh was viewing just a few nights ago.

I decided to join Ann in reading the list of Q&As from start to finish. As expected, I found the questions completely idiotic and poorly thought out. But that’s beside the point. It’s the answers that are really interesting.

Well, not just interesting—hilarious too! I got a ton of laughs out of them (and I still do), so much so that I thought I’d post some of the really funny Q&As right here!

Below are some of the really funny answers heard in a local game show—the now departed game show Wowowee (please ignore the imbecility of the questions and just focus on how funny the answers are):

Josh, Ann, and I had a great time laughing at these Q&As, during which I was reminded of a Gloria Vanderbilt quote:

That is the best—to laugh with someone because you both think the same things are funny.”

I hope I was able to share the laughter with you. 😀

      Oh dear. The last thing I wanted this post to do is hurt someone. 😆

      Better get your laugh organ fixed real quick—because, what is life without laughter, right? 😀
