Vanna White may not be a Rhodes Scholar but to call her a retard is just uncalled for.

Sadly, it's the only Medicaid-approved haircut.

Honestly, at first I thought this was an old topic talking about the guy a little while back during College Week who couldn't do anything right. He had a whole puzzle spelled out but hosed up because he didn't know how to pronounce Achilles. "Atch-i-less?"

Steven doesn't want me watching him sleep anymore.


I thought I would feel bad for making fun of this, but somehow I feel bad even just watching it. Somehow it feels cruel to even let him go on television. It's like the show is trying as hard as it can not to make fun of him but he's just not making it easy for them, is he?

I mean I know he'll never realize how he looked but even so. I thought I was watching South Park.

That's how it works. You don't spin when you're buying a vowel. I mean, i guess if you want you can fault him for not prefacing it with "I'd like to buy a vowel", but he's obviously got no time for that poo poo.

EDIT: For some reason I have a very vivid memory of watching Wheel of Fortune when I was a kid in the late 80's. There was a retard on that week, but he was more of a Forrest Gump type, except more animated, upbeat, and happy than Gump. I think it was a tall bald guy. He also won like at least 3 days in a row, and since I was a young kid and not the cynical bastard that I am now, I remember really rooting for the guy and feeling very :unsmith: when he won.

quote:

I decided to be a contestant because I have been a fan of the show since I was at least two years of age. I love the show and wanted to be part of its history. I thought I would do a great job at solving puzzles.

I have applied to be on the show at every opportunity, from "Face of the Fan" to the recent Wheelmobile event at the University of Phoenix Stadium in March 2013. I believe I was chosen from that event when I enthusiastically solved the slogan "L'eggo my Eggo".

After being notified that I would be a contestant after my final May audtition at the Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale, I watched every single episode I could, incluing Saturday morning reruns of the past season episodes. I also played the game on every available platform as often as possible.

The first thing my family and friends said when I found out I was going to be on the show was of course, congratulations, and they also asked when it would air. Then they told me that I would do great, and that they were very proud of me.

Meeting Pat, during the third taping of the day I was on the show, was as awesome and amazing as it could be. I even mentioned the infamous category, "Megaword". However, I did not get to talk to Vanna, but sure wish I had been able to!

While on camera, I was very relaxed and focused the whole time, and did my best to be myslef and make sure not to call any lettrs already called.

My best advice to future contestants is to relax and have a good time. It is a lot of fun, whether you win big or not. That is my number one guarantee.

I want to thank all of the contestant staf for taking the time to help me, and would like to thanks Pat Sajak for his assistance, as well. I have some physical challenges that they were aware of and they made sure I was safe and comfortable.

February 27, 2014 was one of the BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE! Thanks, Wheel of Fortune!

I feel this word is grindstone, but what the hell is a grindstone and why would you keep your nose to it (unless free plastic surgery).
