Distraction

Probably the cruelest game show ever.

Round One : 4 contestants and a simple buzzer round, answering questions on the subjects of Cowboys and Indians. Sounds simple, right? Each buzzer in front of each contestant happens to have 4 large catci surrounding the buzzer. And then halfway through, they blindfold the contestants. And start the catci revolving...

Round Two : Three contestants and a simple round where all the answers to each question is a number. Each contestant must run, grab the number and take it back to their starting position. Only problem is : each number is attached to a middle aged nudist's body. And they have to take it off with their teeth. As the host said, "It's amazing how far you can let your body go without actually dying".

Round Three : Two contestants now dressed in boiler suits, helmets with visors, and with a buzzer each. And there's a large gentleman with a paintball gun four feet away. Get a question wrong - you get shot. Get a question right, your opponent gets shot instead. Pretty distracting.

Finally, there's only one winner and they bring out his prizes. A stereo, laptop computer, digital camcorder, computer and plasma screen. All to go home with him, garanteed. The condition, however.... Five questions, one per item. Get one wrong the handymen on the set alter it. Given a choice between questions on bricks or make-up, he chooses bricks. First question, and the Stereo is turned into a bookshelf - large heavy screws through the shelf and into the speakers and controls, then finally hammered in. The laptop escapes becoming a chair, as does the camcorder from being turned into a hatrack. It's close, but the computer also escapes from being turned into a large paperweight. And then he fails the plasma screen question on the films of Stanley Ku-brick. Industrial strength glue over the screen, and a picture of Prince Albert glued to it. "Just pretend it's the Discovery Channel non-stop".

I haven't laughed so hard for ages.

Shakespear WTF?

It's called forgetting how to spell the plural of cactus properly, and then not hitting the spell check button when you meant to.

Cacti.

Or maybe Cactuses...
