Job Hunter Dumb Real Donald

From 1973 – 1982, long before the Real Donald became a household word, we found the clever and 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.

At this juncture, I’d normally be presiding over a Dumb Donald clip, but, seeing how my demand has nearly exhausted YouTube’s supply, breathing new life into this concept will all be up to me. To facilitate this reincarnation, I’ve been simulating, semi-serious seances ISO head-to-head matches with our dearly departed, Match Game souls.

And methinks this graying old coot has not been departing the spirit world alone. O – M – G! In the blink of an eye… something wondrous is now afoot. The entity, within, surges… surrounds… surpasses… surfaces… and I must surrender!

Henceforth, my new game show host persona will be presiding over this revamped game show format…

Welcome contestants, one and all, to Match Game 20-20. I’m M.C. Grayburn. Our new rules are straightforward. Each of you will have one chance to match as many of our six, predetermined responses as possible. You’ll be playing for a grand prize that’s priceless:

The confirmation that you’re still a clearheaded, critical thinking non-consumer of the odious orange man’s Kool-Aid™.

If your responses do not match, YET, prove more clever than Match Game’s (which is highly likely) you can still win by posting your own witty and/or wise alternatives within the comment section, below. That said, let’s play Match Game 20-20!

Grayburn: The job hunting, Freudian slipping,
misspelling, Dumb Real Donald is soooooo dumb…
Audience: HOW DUMB IS HE?
Grayburn: on his résumé he misstated
his career objective as _______.

Once the “think music” starts, you’ll have 1 Minute to figure out your responses… and no peeking beneath the turquoise hued, rectangular secrecy partition!

The job hunting, Freudian slipping, misspelling,
Dumb Real Donald is so dumb, on his résumé
he misstated his career objective as _______.

1 More Match Game Dumb Donald Clip ~ Vid of the Day

Throughout most of the 1970’s, Match Game staff writers prepared dozens of mythical Dumb Donald, fill in the blank scenarios for the show’s host, Gene Rayburn, to present to his contestants.

Obviously, this all occurred long before the real Donald’s rise to power and, yet, seeing how he has… now that we watch this game show’s yesterdays playing out today… well… there’s an added humorous dimension that’s inescapable. It tends to make one wonder if this really is mere coincidence? Of course, that does beg the follow up Q…

Might there have been a Time Machine involved… oh… say a DeLorean parked in (or in the vicinity of) the Match Game soundstage lot?

Anyway… our above Vid of the Day clip features the “fake” Dumb Donald finding new, stable employment… a prospect that his real life namesake might soon be facing down, as well.
