    Why weren't Katherine Ryan's "MOLEST" or "FAMOUS" accepted as beating the five-letter word from the other team?

      Technically, the contestants are only allowed to submit a single answer. So they may say "Have a 5 letter word or a risky 7", and they're generally required to decide which one they want to submit. Though, it may not seem like they're very strict on the rules (YAY Johnny Vegas for getting that last word).

    It's always jarring to me when I hear the F word on TV shows. Does anyone know if they bleep them out when they're on television in the UK?

    • briggy azaela

      +Gcat3000 absolutely!! 😊 That was my point. It didn't bother me but I don't hear it often. Wasn't trying to make a negative comment, just found it interesting.

      You are just not used to it, I guess. Alan makes a good point in that our priorities get distorted by whatever media we are exposed to. The "f" word really isn't more harmful than a lot of the messages we're exposed to in US television. A lot of things seem jarring because we're simply not used to it, and yet a lot of negative stimuli is so normalized in our world that we think nothing of it. A red light goes off in our brains for relatively innocuous stuff, while a lot of damaging garbage gets processed and flies under the radar of our awareness.

      @+briggy azaela The video you were watching was a Channel 4 BBC television program recorded by a viewer and uploaded to TheXvid. BBC 4 is the more adult-orientated channel at the BBC. BBC 1 is "family-friendly". I live in Michigan in the USA, and got hooked on 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown in 2018 when it appeared in my TheXvid recommended listing. No apology necessary, I took no offense.

    • briggy azaela
      briggy azaela 2 months ago

      +Alan Dunstan still not sure I understand your point but I apologize if I misinterpreted your comment. As I am sure you know, tone is almost impossible to read in a written message. So I am truly sorry if I read too much into it.
