The Moment of Truth

Earlier this week I watched the new FOX game show "The Moment of Truth." For those who haven't seen the promos, this show takes a contestant, hooks them up to a polygraph, and makes them answer yes or no questions that reveal secrets for money. Questions include "Have you ever cheated on your spouse?" "Do fat people repulse you?" "Do you really care about the starving children in Africa?" Etc. I could not help but feel as if I could come up with much better questions than those that were asked. The following is a list of questions I think people really want to know the answer to:

"Have you ever excused yourself from the dinner table to attend the bathroom?"

"Have you ever watched a game of professional basketball and wanted a team to loose?"

"Have you ever wished for a snow day in order to cancel school?"

"Have you ever gotten angry with a telemarketer for calling you at home?"

(for men) "Do you find women sexually attractive?"

"Have you ever urinated?"

"Have you ever witnessed anything?"

"Have you ever hid something?"

"Have you ever used spellcheck?"

"Have you ever browsed the Internet?"

"Do you look forward to the weekend?"

"Have you ever been to a restaurant?

"Have you ever tried to exercise?"

"Do you own a televison?"

"Have you ever sneezed in public?"


I could see why FOX would consider these to be too controversial.

Funny! Oh Fox, always trying to be controversial.

Do me a favor? Can you remove the "(for men)" before "Do you find women sexually attractive?"I'd really appreciate it.

I didn't mean only men find women sexually attractive. It was a question to imply that a man who finds a woman attractive is sexist. I don't think it would work if you were trying to imply a lesbian is sexist.
