Mike L: There's a couple of folks who will at least make it an interesting game!
Chico: With that, we head into... Gordon wearing my Chairman hat, because it's time to say ... ! ! This game we have fun with another segment of our little site, the Video Wall. Here's how we play, I'll present a snippet of trivia, and you judge from 0 to 10 !s. Then I'll present the video. You judge another 0 to 10 !s.
Gordon: So if you wanted to give something 5 !'s, you go !!!!!
Don: Alright.
Mike L: 'K
Chico: We total up the !s, and the trivia with the most !s gets the Golden Buzzer at the end of the game.
Jason: Gotcha.
Chico: We've got a lot of good stuff today, so let's get to our first Trivia!
Gordon: Go for it

Disembodied voice: The allure...  of Faith Hill is stronger... than that of Gregg Allman.

Chico: Judge now!
Jason: Where is the clip?
Mike K: I think we did.
Don: !
Chico: You get the trivia first, then you get the clip. See, Don, gets it.
Jason: !
Mike L: !
Mike K: I got nothin'.
Chico: And Gordon?
Gordon: 1 pity !
Chico: So we have 4 !s so far. Let's take a look at the video (feel free to stop at the announcement)
Jason: Nothing to add there.
Mike L: Yawn
Mike K: One pity ! because the Hershey's ads wouldn't work with Bo Bice pitching those t-shirts.
Don: Just one more ! from me.
Chico: You got a point there, Mike.
Gordon: No more ! from me. The wrong person one. Bah.

The allure of Faith Hill is stronger than that of Gregg Allman... 6 !s.

Chico: Here's our next piece of trivia.

Disembodied voice: Losers on a blowout game.... of Lingo received as a parting gift... a donut.

Nothing from me.
Gordon: Donut. !-!-!-!-!
Mike K: *hits the ! button until the springs break* 10's the max?
Chico: 10's the max
Mike K: !!!!!!!!!! I'd add another 40 to that but I can't.
Don: !!!!!!!!
Mike L: I gotta give the donut !!!

Chico: 26 !s! Wow! Let's take a look at the video.

Mike L: Props to Brian for actually EATING the donut. Another ! from me.
Gordon: An addition ! for a donut bite
Jason: A donut for Shandi... nothing for me.
Mike K: Oh come on. She could serve enemas to me and it would look good.
Chico: She could serve you. =p
Jason: You just made next week's promo
Gordon: enema. e-n-e-m-a
Chico: (as Shandi) Say, did I ever tell you about the time I got an enema, Chuck?
Mike K: I had plans to add 8, but after Chico's comment... !!!!!!!!!! Yes, she could serve me. She's my dirty little Lingo wench. W-E-N-C-H
Don: !!!!!! I like Donuts.
Jason: Damn Mike.
Mike L: W-H-O-.....never mind.
Chico: Of course :-) I think it's time to award a mini-prize. What do you have, Gordon?
Mike K: I'm a little giddy
Gordon: Opens up the door....I found Mini-Me! That's a mini-prize.
Mike K: So that's where he's been. I thought he fell down to the D-list with Kathy Griffin.

Losers on a blowout game of Lingo received as a parting gift a donut.... 45 !s

Gordon: It seems like a winning clip
Chico: Alright, let's look at our next trivia.
Mike L: Wasn't he on "The Surreal Life"?
Mike K: Winning unless you got the donuts.

Disembodied voice: The record... for Race Game stands at... 10 seconds.

Jason: !!!!!
Don: !!!!!!!
Mike L: !!!!!!!!!! One of my favorite TPIR games. Binary sorting, babeeeeee
Mike K: !!!!!! I used my ! allocation on the Donuts
Chico: You should save your !s for later.
Mike L: Oh, wait...that's the CLOCK game, numbnuts. Still....
Gordon: Smarts and speed. !!!!!
Chico: 33 !s. Not bad. Let's take a look at the video...
Gordon: 4 items. !!!!
Mike L: That's pretty impressive game play right there. I got no more !s to give, or I'd add another couple.
Mike K: !!!!!!!!!! $3050 for a grill? I'd be the hit at the Browns tailgate parties but still, $3050 for a grill?! If the contestant wasn't under such duress, she could've done it in 7 seconds.
Jason: I will save my other 5...but it's really good game play!
Chico: You can still add more. You got another 10.
Jason: Then I will add !!!!!
Don: She knew what she was doing. !!!!!!!!!
Mike K: That's the spirit, Jason!
Mike L: Oh, in that case, add another !!!!!
Chico: Another 33.

The record for Race Game stands at 10 seconds.... 66 !s.

Chico: Here's your next Trivia!

Disembodied voice: Four people think...  that they'll find picketers... outside of a supermarket.

Gordon: Eh. !!
Jason: !!!
Mike K: !!!, and a hesitant 3 at that.
Don: !!!!
Mike L: !!, just cuz I think it'll be more interesting than AI.
Chico: 14 !s. Or 14 Factorial. Enough Math Geekery. Let's take a look at the video
Gordon: Cute clip. 3 more !!!
Don: !!
Mike L: The supermarkets were striking when I lived out west, so I can see it.... I'll add another !!!!
Jason: !!
Chico: Mike? Another entry into BAT: Bad Answer Theatre?
Mike K: ! I have seen picketers outside supermarkets here, primarily because they're against employees unionizing. Maybe it's an Ohio thing.

Four people think that they'll find picketers outside of a supermarket... 26 !s.

Chico: We got one more and here it is...
Mike K: Rather, it's union people boycotting stores because they're non-union. Again, probably an Ohio thing since we're big into unions here.

Disembodied voice: The Schwab's real first name...  is Howard.

Jason: 0!
Mike L: Zippo from me.
Don: 0
Mike K: ! We got haters here.
Gordon: -!
Chico: No negatives, Gordon.
Gordon: Damn.
Mike K: Sure, Gordon neutralizes my positive !
Gordon: ok. !
Chico: Bout to say, what do you think this is, Randy Amasia's Analytical Assessor?
Gordon: I'm sure someone out there cares. My ! is dedicated to that person, who probably lives in a shack in Greenland who can only get ESPN at 2 am ET.
Chico: 2 !s. Let's take a look at the video.
Jason: !!! for the hot girls.
Mike L: I'll give one for each of the best assets on that clip, for a total of !!!!
Jason: Go Mike!
Don: !!!
Mike K: Minnesota and Cleveland were tied that night?! Er, sorry.
Gordon: !...Wait...the guy in Greenland wants me to give an extra ! for 2 ! total
Chico: Greenland!
Mike K: Just one more. ! If his name was Aloysius or Yannick, he'd get more.
Gordon: Guys in Greenland still dig the hot chicks
Mike L: Guys in Jersey do too.
Gordon: They do indeed =)

The Schwab's real first name is Howard... 13 !s.

Chico: Now it's time to award... the Golden Buzzer for today's winning trivia!... with the marble rye inside that looks like a buzzer. And it goes to... 10-Second Race Game!
Mike L: Yay!
Jason: Yes.
Chico: Now Gordon gets to award the Silver Buzzer for his favorite trivia.
Mike L: I love to reward good game play.
Gordon: Gotta go with the donut
Mike K: I went for the sugary sweets. It's the story of my life.
Gordon: Where else can I have a hot girl serve me donuts and Mike enemas? I don't want to see the results of Mike's enemas though. Remember, you can trade in five Silver Buzzers for one Golden Buzzer...
Chico: With the marble rye inside.
Mike K: The reason for the enema is those donuts.
Gordon: Ah. I see.
Chico: That ends !s. We'll finish big after the break.

(Brought to you by Shandi's Shanty. We serve Donuts, Enemas, and everything else with 5 letters. If you have the M-O-N-E-Y, then we have the G-O-O-D-S).

Mike K: But they only take debit. D-E-B-I-T. No credit. *enter Lingo bad word SFX*
Chico: Too long.
Gordon: I figured Mike would be buying there. With that, we go to The Big Finish!
Chico: Okay, we're going into the big finish... now! Hey, Gordon, remember that bet that Rich Cronin had with Gavin Harvey about whether or not Survivor or TAR would win in a rerun race?
Gordon: Yes I do.
Chico: Remember what the punishments were?
Gordon: Eating a Cricket Vs. Marathoning it to work
Chico: Guess who won?
Gordon: I'm guessing that GSN won.
Chico: GSN won.
Gordon: Since a 0.4 is still much better than any rating on OLN.
Chico: Almost half a million viewers vs. 365,000. So Gavin Harvey, if you're reading this... Buon apettito.
Don: Heh.
Chico: Speaking of which, who's next out?
Gordon: Lydia is in deep trouble - she better hope her side wins. Idol's Fantasia Barrino has come out this week and says that she didn't know how to read. Will this get other people out to read?
Chico: Why not, celebs have always been big to get out vital messages essential to life, the universe and everything.
Jason: It may inspire a few people. She has got a new book coming out.
Mike L: But of course, she can't read it.
Mike K: If Fantasia had done anything with her career outside of a cameo on The Simpsons, maybe.
Chico: I think she was on girlfriends once.
Gordon: Will we ever see a Celebrity Lingo Week #2?
Jason: NO!
Mike K: Will we ever see a Lingo season 5? Sad to say, no.
Chico: Nope. I think Shandi killed it. Kill kill kill.
Mike K: Damn her and her donuts.
Chico: Hack slash, bodies everywhere.
Mike K: Her big glaze-covered donuts...
Gordon: Lactated Donuts. Yummm...
Mike L: Since we're seeing a Celebrity Millionaire week again, I'd probably think yes, if it's renewed. That's not necessarily a good thing.
Don: Mmm, Donuts...
Mike L: MMMMMmmmmm, sacrelicious...
Chico: Okay, we've got mail!
Don: Nice.
Mike K: What's mail? We haven't seen that for a long time.
Gordon: We don't get mail for 1 episode and everyone's complaining like it's the end of the world.
Chico: This is from Annie Williams. Thanks for writing, Annie!

When are the Family Feud game show auditions for the Charlotte, NC. area?. I saw the ad but could not get the phone number. Thank you very much.
Chico: Okay, Annie, take this number down. 323-762-8467.. That'll get you on the register for the October auditions. If you're also in Greensboro or Raleigh, you can use the same number.
Jason: Good luck, and we hope to you see your family out there!
Chico: For the same auditions. Thanks and looking forward to seeing you and Richard make nice together. Gordon?
Gordon: Anyone for more mail?
Chico: More mail!
Don: Whoo!
Jason: Sure
Mike L: We love mail.
Gordon: This is from our friends at Telefutura.
Mike K: Hola!
Jason: Bueno!
Mike L: How do you say "Quit stalking me" in Spanish?
Jason: LOL!
Gordon: Anyway... There is a Spanish Version of American Idol coming out called Objetivo Fama.
Jason: Continuing their association with Fremantle.

If you are in the NYC area and wish to audition, the audition will be at Flushing Meadows Park in Corona, Queens on October 15, 2005. It starts at 8am, but you should get there well before then.
Jason: Not only can't I sing, I can't sing in Spanish. I would get the trumpet in two minutes.
Mike L: I'm sure you'd do a killer cover of "Livin' La Vida Loca". Maybe not so much on "Shake Your Bon-Bon"
Chico: ah
Mike L: What's really scary is that I actually remembered two songs from Ricky Martin.
Jason: That's scary.
Chico: That is.
Gordon: Anyone for more mail?
Chico: One more mail!
Jason: Why not.
Don: Alright.
Gordon: From someone who wants to be anonymous...

Hell, I'm in. I'm going to be on a campaign to lose some weight anyway, might as well have some pseudo-motivation.
Gordon: This is from the weight challenge that I had on the SOP article on Friday
Mike L: And here we've been talking donuts all afternoon...
Gordon: Well, I haven't been eating any =). If you do want to do the challenge, or if you want to send any more e-mail, whats the address?
Gordon: Anyways, that puts a lid on this episode. A special thanks to the 2 Mikes, the 2 Canadians, a Jason and a Joe.
Chico: Thanks again, Mike. Stop on by any time :-)
Jason: Big show today.
Mike L: And thank you for inviting me, it's been a blast.
Jason: You are welcome anytime.
Mike K: I will next week. Oh, you meant the other Mike. My bad.
Chico: Yeah, Klauss, you always just show up :-)
Mike L: Careful, I may just take you up on that offer!
Gordon: Feel free to take us up on it, Mike. Either or both Mikes. For everyone here at Game Show Newsnet, this is Gordon Pepper, and he's Chico Alexander, the show is We Love To Interrupt, as we say...
Chico: Game over and spreeeead the love :-)
Jason: See you guys!
Chico: Peace out :-)
