The not so Family Feud

So I was kicking back in the transfusion chair today, minding my own business, trying to find something to watch on tv. When we came across "Family Feud". Seemed like a good way to pass the time. So we start watching innocently. The first question we heard was something like name something people do in the car to pass the time. Most of the answers were already up there, and they were trying to get the last one. When no one got it, they revealed the # 5 answer: "tickle his pickle". What? Stanton and I looked at each other in disbelief. We couldn't decide which was worse the fact that they would put that on Family Feud or that there is possibly 2 out of every 100 people who are doing this while on the road. We continued to watch. The next question was something like name something a husband would bring home that would upset his wife. I kid you not, #1 answer - another woman; #2 - STD's. Other questions were " men think about sex every 6 seconds, what do women think about?" and "name an article of clothing a man is likely to leave on during sex". What happened to the feud?

Is it the new host, Steve Harvey? I think he's partially to blame. I mean Drew Carey took over for Bob Barker and you don't see him making crude jokes. And there's Wayne Brady doing let's make a deal without saying things I wouldn't want my kids to hear. But it can't be all his fault. He may just be the only one willing to say those things on tv.

But who is truly to blame? People. If people didn't watch the show, it would go off air. If people didn't give answers like "tickle his pickle" it wouldn't show up. People are ridiculous.

So next time you are bored and wanting to pass the time in the afternoon, don't be one of those people contributing to the problem.
