The latest Dumb Answer of the Week
comes from Monday's episode of "Wheel of Fortune".
It's not too often that we get a DAotW from a Toss Up puzzle. It's even
rarer that we get one from the opening Toss Up puzzle.
Place your bets on who will flub
Vicki, Joe or Kim?
Red, Yellow or Blue?
Left, Center or Right?
1, 2 or 3?
Alright, here's the puzzle.
Joe buzzes in.
Wow. Just wow.
Kim buzzes in right after, and blanks
on the second word in the puzzle as well, but at least she didn't say
Stockholm was in Germany!
Eventually Vickie gets the proper solution...
Now, you may think I'm being a little on the harsh side to Joe. But, as
you'll find out, I have every right to bash him.
During the contestant interview, we find out the following about Joe...
HE SERVED OVERSEAS FOR OUR COUNTRY AND DOESN'T KNOW WHERE STOCKHOLM IS!
Joe ended up winning the house minimum of $1,000 after solving the
show's first puzzle.
There must be something about armed forces personnel and "Wheel" that
brings out the dumb-dumbs.
