So I’m flipping through TV channels this morning in my hotel room while packing. Normally I wouldn’t stop on Family Feud, but as the picture came on I saw that “Vibrator” was the number 1 answer for whatever question they were on.
And I though, “That can’t possibly be what I think it is. On Wednesday morning at 10am on a major network? In a country so uptight that I couldn’t make a vibrator joke at a corporate gig without being scolded after?”
So I watched for a minute to see what category they were working on. Sure enough, it was “Things a woman uses as a substitute for a man” or something close to that.
It’s strange when network TV is looser on content than some of the gigs I do. I assume because people are watching TV by themselves or with just a few close people. While in the context of a corporate gig or college showcase, everyone is worried about keeping up appearances and political correctness. My response… Get over it.
I was really hoping someone had posted a video of the clip, but I couldn’t find one. But I did find this clip from the British version of the show, in which the number 1 answer is NOT vibrator.
