    Ha---I saw a lot of funny things like this on VH1s "Funniest Game Show Moments." I remember there was a clip from the Newlyweds show where the host asked one of the wives, "where is your favorite place to make whoopie?" Her answer was---"in the ass!"

    Well this isn't a real game show but on SNL they used to have this game show skit (in like the 80s) and the host says "Name a popular dessert" and the contestant immediately says, "Japuti!" it always cracked me up. I wonder if that is even a real word or just made up.

    ^^ I don't know what that is so I'm not sure.

    In family fortunes the families don't know each other they just have to find the top 5 answers given by 100 members of the public.
