OK - most women that I've known over the years love to watch soap operas (or as the ladies called them way back when, "my stories"). My wife, on the other hand, is an exception. She's more of the movie buff.

Me - well, I'm a guy, but...
For most of my 40-some years, I've always loved and still love game shows. Amongst my favorites were Family Feud, Celebrity Sweepstakes (how many remember that one?), Password (one of my all time favorites in the 70's), Match Game, Jeopardy (remember the old NBC version with Art Fleming?), and (how many remember this one?) the Who, What, and Where Game.

I especially love the game shows that bring out the true dips**t in people. I've recently subscribed to a channel on YouTube which features some of the stupidest answers and funniest bloopers that you'll ever see on a game show. Many of these include Family Feud, Newleywed Game, Match Game, Wheel of Fortune (one can only imagine how many people I've called a dips**t on that show), and the many species of Pyramid ($10,000, $25,000, $100,000, etc.). Here's one video clip just to show you what I'm talking about. I'm speculating (and Jason will probably agree) that some of these people eventually grew up to be liturgeists.

STOP at a whammy!

Whammy on a dollar bill squeaks: "I cannot tell a lie! You lose!"

The Elvis whammy was cool too. :)
