I Laughed Out Loud
8 August 2004 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

FAMILY MISFORTUNES shows the dangers humanity faces due to a shrinking gene pool . You often wonder why people go onto game shows considering they`re so retarded well in this one off edition of FAMILY FORTUNES we`re left wondering why some people should be allowed to reproduce . Take this example

Q : Name something you open ?

A: Your legs

Talk about a one track mind . There was one contestant who was so stupid that he features several times

Q: Name a famous Arthur ?

A: Shakespeare

He might misheard the question as " Name a famous author ? " but this guy is a right dummy because the idiocy continues

Q: Name a famous Irishman ?

A: Disraeli

And then in a classic TV moment we see him going for the big money bit at the end of the show with Max Bygraves asking the questions

Q: Name something you take to the beach ?

A: Turkey

Q: Something you buy in a supermarket ?

A: Turkey

Q: Something that gets stuffed ?

A : Oh , turkey

The noise sounds for time up and the camera cuts to the contestants family one of whom can be clearly seen to mutter the " F " and " C " words . Looks like the turkey wasn`t the only thing to get stuffed when everyone got home. Bygraves retorts " You`ve just won two weeks in Turkey , and you`ve won some money so you can take that back to the lunatic asylum " Mr Dummy gives a good natured laugh and the camera cuts back to his family who are giving him hate filled looks and who at any moment may just do something that you`d expect to see on THE JERRY SPRINGER SHOW

A very funny one off show , but if I remember correctly there were a couple of other editions that followed that weren`t half as good
