I wasn't going to post another game show clip so soon after posting another one, but I'm still in tears.

I never heard of the GS "Letters and Numbers", but half of it involves contestants calling out for random consonants and vowels, then forming the longest word possible.

Randomization can only go so far, though ...

Must not have a studio audience, because they would've been a-tittering as soon as the I came out.

No, I think it's because it's a British show. They don't call it a "penis" there, they call it a "banger". Or perhaps I'm mistaken.

More surprising is the related video afterward where the letters spell
Spoiler (click to reveal)
CUNTFLAPS


At least the hostess had a chuckle at that one. Those really CAN'T be an accident; whoever sets up the letters must be doing it on purpose.

Letters & Numbers is an Australian show. There is a British equivalent, it's called Countdown I think.

We know the word penis, but there probably wasn't an audience. This is a low budget ABC production.

S'OK. You Americans all sound the same to us, too.

A banger is a sausage but not in Scotland I think its of cockney (arguably working-class Londoners) decent.

Most know from the foodstuff "Bangers and Mash" - Sausages with Mashed potatoes.

From what I read, the portion after the first four letters was a fake; scenes were spliced together to get the desired effect. The first four letters, though, were legit.
