Wheel of Fortune has been on the air in some way, shape, or form since the mid-1970s, broadcasting a milestone 6,000th episode in April 2014. And really, it’s no surprise that the show’s had such a run: It’s relatively easy to play, it’s fun to watch, and it yields some pretty impressive cash prizes upon a contestant’s victory. (Plus you can’t beat Pat Sajak and Vanna White as far as hosting duos go.)
This past month, the country’s longest-running syndicated game show got a 21st-century facelift in the form of a hysterical Twitter account called “Wheel of Fortune Answers,” or @wofanswers. Its premise is simple: Solve the show’s puzzles with words and phrases that fit the empty letter boxes, but with obviously wrong answers.
Since posting its first tweet on June 4, the account has racked up more than 93,400 followers (and counting) — and once you see some of its funniest posts, you’ll understand why it’s so popular!
Some of the answers are just plain silly.
This sounds like something a kindergartner would shout from the bathroom.
Does your product need an image overhaul? Try rebranding as carrot — duh!
Other answers are a little more on the bizarre side.
Can’t say that song title rings a bell.
Cats can be dangerous little creatures if the mood strikes them. Do we really need to go strapping lasers to their heads?
No matter how weird they get, the answers (usually) fit in the blanks.
*counts letters on fingers* Yup, this one checks out.
One hundred dollars to the first celebrity who says they’re wearing one of these on the red carpet.
Some of the answers borderline on motivational.
Others just read like a bad text message.
Making snacks is an art form, TBH.
You have to wonder who's coming up with this stuff.
Sounds like someone’s funeral party got a little out of hand.
That is a phrase, to be fair!
This one is probably the most legit-sounding answer of the bunch.
The account gets called out occasionally for producing answers that don't fit in the puzzle.
The person running the account always responds politely to naysayers, though.
Well, maybe not politely… but definitely succinctly.
But let's give credit where credit is due.
Wheel of Fortune Answers is making Twitter a better place, one goofy solution at a time.
