From Dawson "Family Feud":

"Name an invention that has replaced stairs."
"The wheel."

That's the stupidest answer in game show history.

The funniest answer?  I agree with Madonna on Ken Jennings' "What's a ho(e)?"
Well, this week was supposed to be a return to normalcy, but that's clearly not allowed.  Since you feel there is no need for this week's FPG to continue, I feel there is no need to continue as an FPG host or a G-R.net member.  Since most people are so desperate to push me out of here, why delay it?  I would have preferred that everybody publicly admitted it rather than string me along for the last two days, but it is what it is.  I am hereby resigning as FPG host and moderator, effective immediately.  whammy007 is the new permanent host.  No R-rated rant or airing of grievances from me.  Just a polite "goodbye for good".

I have another one from Jeopardy!:

"If a Japanese 'isha' (doctor) asks you to stick out your 'shita' he means this."

Contestant:

"What is your behind?"
"Cherish the past, accept the present, and anticipate the future.  They are listening to feedback wherever feasible, but they can't repeat the past."

Here's another answer from the British show Family Fortunes:

"Name something people take from hotels as a souvenir."

Contestant said:

"The Lamps."
"Cherish the past, accept the present, and anticipate the future.  They are listening to feedback wherever feasible, but they can't repeat the past."

From Dawson Feud

Name a question such as how old are you...

(blonde girl rings in)

AHHHH... 18!

(strike)

Dawson then reads the full question: Name a question such as how old are you, that you might answer with a lie.

Other woman: I would say about 50.

(later during same faceoff)

Man: I'm 47 (I think don't quote me on this one)

I've got a couple:

From Bert's Family Feud in Australia:

Bert: "Give me an affectionate term you might call your partner."
Contestant: "Buddy!"
(synthesized version of UK Family Fortunes "uh-oh" sound)

From Dawson-era US Feud (another classic):

Richard: "Name something your neighbor has that you wished you had."
Contestant: "A beautiful wife."
(DING!)
Richard: "Gene, check the papers for the next couple of days and see if well-known glass manufacturer has been killed." :D

This is a YouTube clip from Tattletales, aired July 5, 1974. The question to the ladies is "You're the managing editor of Playgirl magazine. Who would you want for next month's centerfold?"

Listen to Dick Gautier's prediction of how Barbara Stuart (his wife) will answer, and Barbara's subsequent response.

Here's another from Family Fortunes:

"Name a game that uses a black ball."

Contestant 1 said:  "Hockey."

Contestant 2 said:  "Darts."
"Cherish the past, accept the present, and anticipate the future.  They are listening to feedback wherever feasible, but they can't repeat the past."

There is also, of course, a certain Newleywed Game response. I won't quote it here, as it's not exactly appropriate for youngsters. :lol:

That question/answer was on today's Family Feud with Richard Dawson, believe it or not. Funny.

Here's yet another one from Family Fortunes:

"Name a reason for standing up quickly"

Contestant said:

"To go to church."
"Cherish the past, accept the present, and anticipate the future.  They are listening to feedback wherever feasible, but they can't repeat the past."
