Great Game Show One-Liners

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”


Hi loyal blog readers, I’m back. I haven’t been able to do a post for a few days, work pressures by day and absolutely sweltering heat at night. But here I am again.

One of the things I did get a chance to do was find some of the game show stuff I had filed away. If you need a funny one-liner then there is probably no better source than programs like Family Fortunes. It’s quite amazing the things that people will say when in a pressure situation.
