Roger, is that a new record? A 13-years-and-change bump?

This thread that was bumped a month ago by a troll was 5023 days in between.

(P.S. thanks gamesurf for the link).

From the 1983-1994 UK version of "Blockbusters":

Host Bob Holness:"What O is the generic word for any living animal or plant, including bacteria and viruses?"

Contestant: "Orgasm"(audience laughter)

Holness: "There are reasons, which I won't go into, that I can't accept that particular answer."

The correct answer was organism.

Methinks the people digging up these old threads are attempting to be the one to bump the oldest thread on the site, thus creating a new record. Now if you'll excuse moi, I shall return to searching up the next oldest thread.  :P

I don't really mind bumping this kind of thread because the content isn't time-sensitive, and the post that did such was on-topic.

My biggest issue with it is if you're going to make a 14 year bump, you gotta have better material than "Haha remember that time when the contestant said 'penis' and Steve Harvey was SHOCKED?"

On Family Feud, Steve Harvey asked this question: "If Steve Harvey were reincarnated, name an animal he would come back as."

Contestant: A Donkey!

From the Jeopardy! 2011 Tournament of Champions:

GROUP COUNTDOWN for $600: If Andy yearns for Brenda & Brenda cares about Charlene who pines for Andy, the 3 of them form one of these.
Kara Spak: What is a threesome?

(For the record, the correct response was "A love triangle.")

On Family Feud, Steve Harvey asked this question: "Name something any woman would prefer to see a man holding instead of the remote."

Contestant: His penis!

Family Feud survey: A wife might tell her husband, "I wish your (what) was like Steve Harvey's."
Contestant: Penis! (this was actually #7 as "Body/Dong.")

You've been the only one adding to the thread for the last month, is there a reason you're bumping this over and over?

^I've been getting back into Harvey Feud recently, and I just happened to find those funny moments that I thought were worth sharing (and had me LOLing so hard as well!).

Thanks for sharing, howierules, but sometimes a thread should die a natural death. You've already did a 13 year bump on the thread and I don't think people saying "PENIS!!!" on Family Feud is enough to keep bumping it.

Gonna close this thread, at least for the time being.

This. Still applies. Seriously, 3/4 of the bad answers on Harvey Feud aren't even funny anymore... not like they ever were to begin with. There are only so many times contestants can reference genitalia- especially when they write surveys to get people to respond that way- before it ceases to be funny.

If all we're going to do is fill the thread with Harvey Feud dreck, well, don't.

EDIT: I see Alfonzo beat me to the lock. Since I spent so much time writing this reply, I'm gonna post it anyways.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

No problem, CU.

I will suggest to you and howierules to watch some YouTube clips of Family Feud Canada, which is a refreshing take on how the American Family Feud USED to be played. It also reminds us that you don't always need penis jokes to be funny.
