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 (perhaps even clairvoyant) Match Game writers submitting dozens of 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…
Dumb Donald is really dumb. He just opened a ________ for pet rocks.”
So, just how do the two Donald worlds meet? Short answer: They’re both rockhounds.
The Real Donald’s character flaws are inclusive of his ferocious fetish / hero worship for autocratic, imbecilic, xenophobic, psychopathic figures. Fleshing that out, he honors dishonorable Civil War era Confederate generals / soldiers… reprehensible racists and bloodthirsty enemies of / traitors to America… and their carved in stone likenesses. These erected statues are his “pet rocks”. As for whether or not his idols help him get his rocks off? Ahem… let’s not go there!
The Real Donald is so dumb that he has actually scrawled his gargantuan font signature onto an Executive Order… for the express purpose of protecting his monuments to stupidity… to shield them from the very vandalism, which all civilized people deem justifiable and long overdue. We’re speaking, especially, of the tens of thousands of peaceable protestors who’ve been pouring out into the streets to raise awareness of the fact: Black Lives Matter!
Toppling and deep-sixing each and every last damned one of Donald’s godforsaken “pet rocks”, should be top priority!
Yet, the Real Donald would much rather come to the rescue of HIS OWN asshat heroes than save the lives of the flesh and blood true blue Americans who… owing to his own monumental ignorance and neglect… he sickened with COVID-19. Far worse, on his watch, he has sickened to death 150,000 souls… and still counting.
All of that with nary even a blinked back tear in either of his vacant eyes. His obsession with rocky statuary is totally indicative of the rocks between his ears and the stone behind his sternum. Need we say more?
Well… maybe so… seeing how this clip hearkens back to 1975’s pet rock craze. For sure, nearly anyone born, afterwards, will be asking, “Pet what?” But not to worry, once we playback our Match Game clip, Mr. Rayburn will bring everyone up to speed. It’s amazing how even he needed to elaborate on the subject, scant months after the fad had faded. Even more astounding is how consumers had been pissing away their hard-earned bucks just to purchase rocks that anyone could readily find underfoot, free of charge, anywhere on our planet.
Now, let’s consider the possible blank fillers to our specific Match Game scenario…
“Dumb Donald is really dumb. He just opened a ________ for pet rocks.”
Real Donald’s possible responses:
• Trump Tower
• Hall of Fame
Critical Thinkers’ responses: [see addendum below]
• Recycling Center
• Hall of Shame

Stay Safe at Home! Stay Publicly Masked! Stay Healthy!
ADDENDUM [07/27/20 08:58]: These thinkers’
responses would transform Dumb Donald into
a Smart Sammy who’s Really Smart Scenario.
How Dumb of me to not think of this sooner!!!
