Avoiding Embarassment

In the late 60's and through the 70's there was a daytime game show called "The Newlywed Game". If you have never seen it, the show had couples that had been married a year or less on and asked them questions about their mate and /or their life together. These questions often provoked a funny, provocative response. Questions like where was the weirdest place you have ever gotten the urge to make whoopee? The response from one newlywed was: "in the ass". She was bleeped of course and her husbands response was "in the car", but none the less her embarrassment has been recorded for posterity:


Somewhere between July 1979 and December 1970, my love and I decided that it would be fun to try out for the show so we sent in an application and received an invitation for a try out. They sent us the address in Hollywood, we lived in the L.A. area at the time, and the time for the interview, so off we went.

Now, my one true love has never been very good with a map, and being a guy, I never was real big on asking for directions so after driving around for some time, we never were able to find the place so we gave up and went home.

Today we both feel fortunate that we did not have a GPS unit then. If we had we might not be married today.
