Dumb Donald’s Din-Din (and Din)

For optimal effect, prior to playing back the clip, above, read the set up, below…

From 1973 – 82, long before the Real Donald became a (four-letter) household word, we found the clever (clairvoyant?) Match Game writers submitting Dumb Donald scenarios for emcee Gene Rayburn to recite to the panelists, contestants and all who were playing along in the home and studio audiences… situations such as…

Rayburn: “Dumb Donald is soooooooo dumb…
Audience: “How dumb is he?”
Rayburn: “Once he tried to ____ a TV Dinner.”

Soooooooo, just how do the two Donalds’ worlds meet?

Whoa! Time Out!

Setting aside the clairvoyance, momentarily, it doth seem some déjà vu is in play here, too.

Have we not seen this clip before? Well, as it turns out, my previous post (timestamped 12/04/19), allowed us to catch a different glimpse of couch potato Dumb Donald’s odd TV viewing habits.

And I ask… what better way to showcase how the two Donalds’ worlds converge?

Think about it…

Me: Match Game soothsayers felt a compulsion that was soooooooo strong…
You: How strong was it?
Me: They just had to tap, anew, into Real Donald’s compulsion for all things TV!

All of which adds further credence to the speculation that their minds were functioning on a higher plane of existence. This time, they even managed to allude to the Real Donald’s penchant for pigging out on nutritionally low quality, unhealthy fare while gorging on the garbage… the psychotic hogwash… the undeserved praise… which the FOX TV network “personalities” constantly cook up to feed Delusional Donald.

The only good that can come out of any of that crap is the Real Donald’s concurrent state of stupor and sloth. If humanity is fortunate, such sluggishness will bog down his evil plot to topple Democracy, Decency, Liberty and the American Dream. Maybe… just maybe… all he’ll be able to muster will be an endless series of disgusting, high decibel burps and farts.

Ahem… all things considered…

This would be the opportune moment to scroll back up to our clip… to discover how well contestant Debbie Rich will fare in her attempt to match the celeb panelists…
