British Gameshow Countdown asks: What word can you make using U,D,F,C,K,E?

March 25, 2010

Get you mind out of the gutter…although that was my first word too.

Good thing there was not S,S up there too!

Numbers girl Rachel Riley cringed as the letters came up and host Jeff Stelling gave a wry smile.

However the two quiz entrants spared further blushes by digging out safe five letter words.

The full set of nine letters on the popular afternoon quiz also included A, G and O.

The contestants went for “caged” and “faced”.

And the Channel 4 programme, which marks its 5,000 edition tomorrow, was spared from further embarrassment when resident expert Susie Dent came up with two seven letter words – “dogface” and “dockage”.

The brain-game quiz show was made famous by Richard Whiteley and Carol Vorderman.

Since Whiteley’s death in 2005 hosts have included Des Lynam and Des O’Conner with blonde Riley replacing Vorderman last year.

That really brings me back to my youth and the Newlywed Show.  When Ronin and I were kids, we didn’t have 250,000 channels to watch and complain that there was nothing on.  So one of our staple shows was gameshows,  like Password, Dating Game, 100,000 dollar pyramid and others.  The funniest one is the Newlywed Game and you can see why…

Who doesn’t like it there?

    Would any of the student athletes at USC (Trojans) be able to figure that one out ?

    most likely not…but when I think about, they might, but then they would attack the co-host turning the letters.

      I hear that Reggie Bush is glad that Kim wants to remain friends after their apparent break up ? Does that mean she’ll become one of his ‘friends with fringe benefits’ ? I mean he’s also knockin’ boots with Miami Latina Carmen Ortega .

      Is it because of her a_s that he’s mountin’ that as well do you think ?

    I hear that a prerequisite in playing for John Calipari is to have the reading level of a middle school kid but as long as you ‘can ball’ you’ll be fine. He’ll make sure that someone takes your tests and does all of your classwork . Ain’t life grand ?

      Coach Cal doesn’t discriminate. If you don’t have a middle school diploma, they will just create on for you using the computer and photoshop…

        Is there any student athlete much an academic student Kentucky with that sort of attribute to begin with ? As the Education Secretary Arne Duncan stated if qualification for the NCAA tournament was based upon a minimum level graduation rate of 40%, more than half the schools entered wouldn’t have met that criteria .

        Need I say anymore on the matter ?
