Game Show Tryouts

By far, one of the things I’ve always wanted to do is appear on a game show.

When I was a kid, it was pretty obvious I liked The Price is Right; I made my own versions of the games out of paper, and entertained my grandmother with them. I was Bob Barker, and there was no Rod Roddy, sadly.

But I started really liking Wheel of Fortune, and everyone around me said, “You should get on that show!” I never really tried, but always wanted to. So you can bet that I’ve signed up to be a contestant on the Wheel site, as well as the site for Jeopardy! – I want to win big bucks and no whammies!

Just thinking about the millions of people who read the Ping… there surely must be at least one person who has tried out for a game show, and either gotten on or been carefully rejected. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
