A Well-Versed 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.

Normally, at this juncture, I’d be presiding over a Dumb Donald Clip, but, since my demand has nearly exhausted YouTube’s supply, I’ll now need to breathe new life into my shtick. ISO inspiration, namely, head-to-head matches with our dearly departed, Match Game souls, I’ve been simulating, semi-serious seances. And methinks this graying old coot has not been departing the spirit world alone! Indeed, the new, game show host persona, from within me, now emerges to preside over this reincarnated, revamped game show format. Voilà and Ta-Da!

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 priceless grand prize; the affirmation that you’re still a clearheaded, critical thinking non-consumer of the Kool-Aid™!

If your non-matching, responses prove more clever than Match Game’s, you’ll still be a winner! To claim your prize, post your witty and/or wise alternatives in the comment section, below.

Soooooo, let’s play Match Game 20-20.

Check out this fill-in-the-blank limerick:

Real Dumb Donald is nasty as phlegm! Ick!
So deserving of this rant / polemic,
He won’t restrain deadly strain,
Nor rein in brutal cops’ reign,
Instead, props up ___________.

Once the “think music” starts, you’ll have 1 Minute to think up your 6 responses.
And, btw, no peeking beneath the turquoise hued, rectangular secrecy partition!

Dumb Real Donald’s “Dirty” Limerick

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… Voilà and Ta-Da!

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 truly 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’ll still win! BTW, we’d love to read your witty and/or wise alternatives within the comment section, below.

Pandemic Etiquette (1 Quick Limerick #102)

 

While Herculean, might describe our task,
Corona-V Must be Slain! How you ask?
Let’s scrub hands with persistence!
Shun large crowds! Social distance!
Last but not least: Make Damned Sure To Don Mask!

 

Stay Safe… Stay Home… Stay Healthy…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just Following Orders? (1 Quick Limerick #101)

 

An anti-American, treasonous cur,
Conspires to conquer protestors, astir,
If Trump’s intrigues, illegit,
Green lit a homeland nuke hit?
Would top brass respond with their “No” or “Yes sir!”?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Image Makeover (1 Quick Limerick #100)

 

Corona’s COVID-19 needs name, new,
To give full credit, where credit is due,
He, who downplayed, this bug’s killing,
Must be awarded top billing,
Doctors should dub it The Trumpian Flu.

 

Stay Safe… Stay Home… Stay Healthy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Un-Disciplined King (1 Quick Limerick #099)

 

King Perv, who’s pimped out in avarice; vice,
Needs folks he harms to butt kiss; treat him nice;
to prattle, fawn, praise and thank him?
HELL NO! His Mistress should spank him!
But, would he not deem discipline: Paradise?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Top Billing? (1 Quick Limerick #098)

 

The narcissist nincompoop tries to upstage,
Coronavirus, that’s on wild rampage,
Helps not the sick and the dying,
Expects their thanks; For Not Trying,
When he don’t get that, he seethes his outrage!

 

Stay Safe… Stay Home… Stay Healthy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unveiled Villain (1 Quick Limerick #097)

 

In the limelight, the Crowned Head doth bask,
Snarls at Newshawks, who take him to task,
He’ll pooh-pooh face protection,
To curb COVID infection,
Might he need muzzle, far more than a mask?

 

Stay Safe… Stay Home… Stay Healthy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s Fill in the Blank (1 Quick Limerick #096)

 

All prezzy sez and duz, he’s sure to muck up,
Instead of telling him so, minions suck up,
To be proFane, more Frank,
Let’s all Fill in the blank,
That numb dumb cluck is one hell of a _uck up!

 

Stay Safe… Stay Home… Stay Healthy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crowned by Corona (1 Quick Limerick #095)

 

The coiffured, yet, mangy man, oft flips his wigger,
So full of himself, his head could not be bigger,
Yet, in thick skull there’s no brain,
Fears not the Corona strain,
He now has become, the pandemic’s grave digger.
