I saw the episode a few months ago and thought the same thing. I’ve seen much worse though. The question was, name something a person would take off at night before going to sleep. The obvious came up, eye glasses, shoes, clothes, etc. With one answer left, the last guy can’t think of anything and says “tacos”. Even the host stopped and looked at him odd. Another good one was "name something found in a bakery. First person says bread which is on the board. Second person says rolls, which wasn’t up there. Must have been those new low-carb no bread rolls.
I guess I can see that. I’m a bit jaded, as I had to spend one summer watching Family Feud ALL DAY LONG compiling data for a games theory professor for a part-time job. I’ve seen REALLY bad answers. (And I still say “dryer” has a higher chance of being on the board than “washer” - and therefore a solid guess.)
Uh, didn’t say it was funny now did I?
Munch, you are right, it was different enough, just struck me as odd since I lump the two in the same category. The host commented on this after he got nothing for it.
I still think the funniest Family Feud response was to the question “Name a place a pirate hides his treasure.”
To which the response was :
Now obviously the guy just came up with the first word he could think of that had to do with pirates’ treasure. But basically he was suggesting a likely place for a pirate to hide his treasure is up his ass…
I realize it’s in oppposition to the whole point of the game but I think the guy should have gotten some point for probable historical accuracy .
I was just about to post about that myself. He didn’t say turkey to all five questions, but four of them, and it was actually on point for one of them, and got one or two points on two of the others. It was the most surreal thing.
“Name a meat you eat on a sandwich.”
“Name something white.”
“Name a country in the south of Europe”
“Name something you might find on a farm.”
