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, 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.
Grayburn: Real Dumb Donald, is soooooo dumb…

Once the “think music” starts, you’ll have 1 min. to figure out your 6 responses;
