I’m rerunning this cartoon from last September because of a recent comment left by Brendan Pimper on the original strip. He had this very thing (the 2nd panel) happen to him on a show that aired March 18. The video of the show can be seen here, thanks to Nancy Shack: part 1 and part 2.
After watching the video, I must say Brendan proved himself a deserving usurper of the winning podium. That’s not always the case with such occurrences.
I also noticed a few clues in the episode that seemed slightly off to me, to varying degrees:
• Less than a few or couple — ONE [Why include both “a few” and “couple”?]
• It can come off your windshield and right into your eyes — GLARE [Doesn’t the glare come through your windshield or off another car?]
• Mimic Tarzan — YELL
• If you wear too much, this is what makeup becomes — GOOK [The contestant guessed GOOP.]
• Final round: Stick your ear in the wrong end of the glass pressed against the wall — HEAR NOTHING [Wha?]
And then there was the final grid, which apparently included a theme… almost. These five entries were symmetrically placed in the grid:
SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NOTHING, FEEL COMFORTABLE, TASTE DEFEAT… and SQUIRT GUN!
Ah, the old sense of squirt. Much better than that overrated sense of smell.
