Ever been on a game show?

After a discussion with a Pinger yesterday, I wanted to know: have any readers have ever been a contestant on a game show? How about in the audience?

I attended Hollywood Squares back in the Jon Davidson days, but other than that, nothing. Always wanted to be on one, but these days, being a contestant is much different than in the 70s or 80s. Back then, “normal” people were normal. Aside from shows like Lingo, most contestants seem like they were bred to be on air.

I tried out for Millionaire – full story at

I didn’t make it, so I don’t know if this counts or not.

Close enough!

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!
