During my college days, Max, that's exactly what I had to do some times.

I used to love watching Match Game '77, which specialized in risque humor. I don't think it was only indicative of the times -- spousal abuse didn't have as high a profile in the media then -- as it was also a way of getting a rise out of the audience. It was a linear descendent of "The Newlywed Game," "The Dating Game," and a foreshadowing of "The Gong Show."
