As I’ve mentioned in the past, I watch very little TV. It’s a form of protest. I’m mourning the wonderful game shows we had in the 1970s. It seems they’ve been replaced by reality shows. Boo. Hiss.

My favorite (although the original Family Feud is a close second) game show of the 1970s was Match Game (marketed as Blankety Blank(s) in other countries). The object of the game was for a contestant to match celebrities’ answers to fill-in-the-blank questions. As Wikipedia points out, the show was known for its 

statements…written with bawdy, double entendre answers in mind. A classic example: “Did you catch a glimpse of that girl on the corner? She has the world’s biggest _________.”

I’ve often thought the show should be updated for modern times. So, here’s a Match Game question of the day.

Charlie the Caterer said, “Oy. The daughter of the guy who owns Chick-Fil-A is getting married. For the reception, they want a thousand pounds of chicken shaped like ________________.”
