Ok, I had this genius idea the other day, which unraveled like this:
1) My egg sandwich is delicious!
2) I wish that I could eat & read at the same time :(
3) It's too bad only Wheel of Fortune is on at 7:30pm :( I don't like eating egg sandwiches while watching this show.
4) This is the dumbest show: if you paid attention in 1st-3rd grade, isn't it hard NOT to win loads of money?
5) Poets are usually broke, right?
6) WHY DON'T WE GET ALL THE POETS WE KNOW TO APPLY TO BE ON WHEEL OF FORTUNE????
Genius or what?
So, I did a little follow up investigation to see if this was feasible. It is:
Um, it's really easy to apply (you just cannot have any relatives who work for the show or Jeopardy). AND, the questions they ask you go like (I'm really not joking, I'm cutting and pasting the questions from the link above):
Do you have a pet?
What type of pet do you have?
Are you an NFL fan?
If so, what is your favorite NFL team?
Are you an country music fan?
If so, who is your favorite country music artist?
What is your favorite Soap Opera?
Who is your favorite Soap Opera actor or actress?
This is how they decide who goes on the show? Why aren't we all applying right now?
Some thing's abrewin' at the Bowery (yes, you know where it is). I'm pasting the info below. You should go to at least one of the readings if you can:
