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. However… regrettable but true…
My stash of remaining YouTube Dumb Donald clips is now soooooo scant…
How scant is it?
I’ll now need to __________.
The “definitive” fill-in-the-blank response: create my own fill-in-the-blank scenarios.
Working towards that goal will require my conducting a mini-seance to summon the spirits of those dearly departed, bygone soothsayer writers, panelists, winning contestants… maybe even the personable Mr. Rayburn himself? I must beseech them to bestow their expertise upon me. [playback clip below now] Maybe it’ll help if I zone out on that hypnotic, revolving Match Game light box… OH WOW… I can already feel my consciousness meandering, melding and merging with the spirit world…
Welcome, one and all to the virtual version of Match Game 20-20. I’m your new, gray-maned host, M.C. Grayburn.
A heads up, especially to longtime Match Game aficionados! The rules have changed considerably. Each of you will have just one chance to correctly match 1 or more of the 6 “definitive” responses. Btw, the more you match the more points you score.
For each winner, your grand prize will be priceless… the comforting confirmation that you’re still a clearheaded, critical thinking, non-consumer of the odious Orange Man’s Cyanide and Valium laced, orange Kool-Aid™.
By the by, even if you don’t match any of the 6 possible responses, you could still be a winner if your response is or responses are more clever than Match Game’s. If so, why not post your gems in the comment section, below? And be sure to award yourself some bonus IQ points, too.
Soooooo… to recap, you’ll have 66 seconds to come up with the “definitive” response(s) to the following scenario…
Grayburn: The cheating, lusting for reelection
Dumb Real Donald is soooooo dumb…
Audience Query: How dumb is he?
