Pick That Skank

I have always loved game shows. From the smarmy Chuck Woolery with Lingo, to the scowling Simon Cowell of American Idol, I have seen them all. One of my new favorites is Identity with the incomparable Penn Jillette. The object of the game is to identify a group of strangers just by sight. They match up swimsuit models, pre-school teachers, missionaries, cops, criminals, and just about every describable occupation, hobby, and quirks.

As much as I love the show and knowing TVs penchant for creating spin-offs for even mildly popular shows. I have an idea for a great spin-off. 'Pick That Skank' would test contestants ability to pick various types of females from a line up. The first episode would include a nun, a transvestite, a Sunday school teacher, a prostitute, a stay at home mom, a dominatrix, a college student that has appeared on a 'Girls Gone Wild Video', a school lunch lady, a porn star, a virgin, a bag lady, and Hillary Clinton. Future episodes could feature cowgirls, strippers, college professors, romance writers, convenience store checkers, lingerie models, female boxers, Ann Coulter, and the list is endless.

With the ability of make up and costumes to change the look of the various 'identities', I am sure that it would make for some hard choices. The secret to the success of the show would fall not only by the quality of the various identities but by the genius or idiocy of the contestants. I can imagine the look of shock when a contestant chooses wrong and picks a Nun for a porn star. I could also sympathize with the poor sucker that incorrectly chooses a transvestite as Hillary Clinton.

first with fuzz! woo hoo
how bout name that plumbers butt crack, or who moved my food stamps ...I mean cheese. Better yet pick the numnut with the best hair implants. lmfao
take care fuzz

:P fuzzbox said...

ez: I wonder how many women could name their husbands just by looking at their plumbers crack? It would be an amazing social study.

angel, jr. said...

Yeah, why is it that many plumbers and such are known to have cracks?

:P fuzzbox said...

angel, jr: I believe the medical problem is known as noassatall. It is usually compounded by the simple malady known as beer gut. The two anatomical malfunctions often tally up to a wicked plumbers crack.

Lolly said...

That would be fun! I haven't seen the show Identity, but on your show, having the line-up subjects say a few words so the contestants could hear them talk would help quite a bit, I think. Cowgirls talk differently from college professors and bag ladies.

Lolly said...

Oh, P, I could definitely pick my husband by his crack. (It's not a plumber's.)

Big Pissy said...

I think this show would do well.

Call Hollywood now and sell it, baby! ;-)

Pixie said...

Now that is a show I would make a point of watching.
I was watching the surreal life fame game a few weeks ago and they had to not pick hookers, it was hard to tell who was a hooker and who was not I tell you.

tkkerouac said...

I like your skanky pics.

:P fuzzbox said...

lolly: The homogenization of accent is an ever increasing phenomena. But differences would arise. Although I doubt that they are as pronounced as one might think.

pissy: Hopefully I will get the call.

pixie: It has got me into trouble before. ;)

tkkerouac: I am all about skanky pics.

Keshi said...

gotta love those skanks LOL!

Keshi.

pure evyl said...

I am so digging the lunch lady pics. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find sexy lunch lady pics? The crap that one has to weed through is mind numbing.

Phats said...

You should pitch this idea to the GSN I bet they'd jump all over it, I'd sure watch.

I love gameshows too!! One of my all time favorites, press your luck!! No whammies!! The old one btw not that silly new one.

ella m. said...

You have to get this on the air fuzz...a show involving guessing the identities skanks, junkies and stripper types is one I could actually win,as it'd be no different than the average night at work :D

Paige Burns said...

I'm not a game show fan at all, or reality show for that matter either, but I would totally watch people confusing Nuns for porn stars! lmao

:P fuzzbox said...

keshi: It is one of the true joys in my life.

evyl: You are preaching to the choir. It is about time for the sexy lunch ladies to make themselves known. I think that if they can get up enough to do a calender that would be the way to go.

phats: I liked press your luck but my fave has to be Card Sharks. I always wondered where in the hell they dug up the contestants. They could pontificate over the most inane of subjects.

ella: If only I could be so lucky.

paige: It has all the earmarks of a hit.

Keshi said...

u got that right ;-)

Keshi.

Phats said...

OOO!! card sharks was cool too. I am still a price is right fan as well, but if they hire Mario to replace Bob Barker I won't watch that shit

Catch said...

I knew your wheels were turning over here Fuzz...I smelled the smoke! And you have come up with yet another great idea! You just never cease to amaze me! The only game show I watch is Family Feud..it reminds me of home! ;))

Bruce said...

Ya, know, in this day and time, with the exception of the virgin and Hillary, those could all be just one woman.

David Amulet said...

The real problem you'd have is that a nun, a transvestite, a Sunday school teacher, a prostitute, a stay at home mom, a dominatrix, a college student that has appeared on a 'Girls Gone Wild Video', a school lunch lady, a porn star, a virgin, a bag lady, and Hillary Clinton are not mutually exclusive.

I can imagine that one woman could be at least six or seven of those at the same time.

It would make a gazillion dollars on SPIKE or HBO ;-)

phlegmfatale said...

I'm not much for watching game shows, but I do like Penn Jilette, and I'd definitely watch your skank-tastic version of Identity. Let me know when it's scheduled to air, mkay?

phred said...

It`s all about marketing.
I know that your imagination is good enough to do it.
When will you start ?

writer chick said...

God, I could swear I commented on this. I love this show - it can replace Idol when they realize that it's past its prime.

How about adding brain-fogged blogger chicks to the list? ;)

ozymandiaz said...

The first round is easy. Regardless of how you make them up, we all know Hillary is a skank.

:P fuzzbox said...

keshi: ;)

phats: Without Bob, it will be shit.

catch: I liked the old feud with Richard Dawson. I haven't like any of the other incarnations. They just don't stack up to the old perv.

bruce: That is very true.

david: If you find a transvestite nun who teaches sunday school by day and is a prostitute dominatrix by night, give me a call.

lisa: That's my thinking.

phlegmmy: Skank-tastic. That is definately my new favorite word.

phred: I am currently doing a lot of uhhhh research. Yeh that's it. Research on skanks. I'll let you know how it pans out.

wc: Got anyone in mind?

ozy: Amen!!!

Ol' Lady said...

if your lookin for skanks to do your show call my ex's wife...she is a mean evil primary teacher who hates kids! how can you be a teacher and not like children?
