Game shows back when were not athletic. They were mostly question and answer or some sort of puzzle. They were usually fixed too. No one was as smart as those contestants acted. Now the games have gone athletic. They have a pool with three balls. The object was to bounce off the three balls and reach the end. No one can do that. As soon as you hit a ball it turns and throws you off. Sort of like the bulls in bars years ago. They left the end of the pool as gravel. No one was going to gt that far, why waste the money? There’s the contest where the contestants decide what amazing thing they would do. One guy set his nuts on fire. That amazed the judges. He couldn't repeat the stunt so he was disqualified but given a Blue ribbon A woman came out and farted the Star Spangled banner. The guy with the burning nuts set off a methane explosion. One of the firemen said. “It was a good thing she wasn’t fat. Then the whole neighborhood would have gone.” They had a guy who claimed he could hold his breath underwater for 7 minutes. He would do it in a glass pool to show he wasn’t cheating. He jumped in and went down. Five minutes later, the medics noticed no bubbles had escaped. They didn’t see any sign of life. They went in and pulled the guy out, They did CPR and got an ambulance there. After The judges were furious, They yelled that the medics hadn’t given him the seven minutes. The ll gave the guy a zero, eliminating him. One judge said, “He didn’t hold his breath for seven minutes so to hell with him.” One of the judges said this was the best job he’d had since that bit part in “The Gallant Women” where he played one of the women. “Man, I ’d do this show for free.” One of the producers overheard this and told him his new contract would be a lot lower. The other judges patted him on the back and sniggered.

Please take the time to rate this writing once you have read it. Our ratings system allows people to know both how popular the writing is, and how well the general populous of the site thinks it is written. This also allows the writer to have feedback about their writing, so they know if they need to improve their technique, or if they're on the right track.

The system allows you to vote on several aspects on the writing. Refer to the help text below each aspect for an explanation. Consider the different aspects carefully, and submit your vote using this form. It will be instantly weighted with the other votes given.

Depending on the writing type, give your opinion on the overall plot if it is a story, or the concept of the writing if it is abstract such as a poem. Does it seem to make sense, strike a chord with you or seem a well chosen concept? Did the author stick to the concept or did they change mid-thought?
Did the author use words and descriptions that allowed you to visualize the scenes portrayed in the writing? Did the feelings of the work stir your emotions as you read it?
Were the words spelled correctly? Was proper punctuation and grammar used? Could you easily understand sentences or did you have to re-read lines several times to understand what was meant?
Depending on the writing type, how did the writing flow? If it's a story, did it have a smooth, easy to follow flow? Did the flow of events make sense? If it's poetry, did the author stick with the syllable flow for that writing type? Did the lines rhyme properly if a rhyming device was used?
Did the author use the same words over and over or did they use a broad vocabulary to get their exact point across? Could better wording be chosen then what they have used?

  • lol How true, Don. The game shows are crazy, except for Jeopardy. But, please, never go to a game show in Japan. They are even crazier then we are.
