They say you should never work with children or animals. But in the case of game shows, it might be wise to substitute 'children' for 'the public' and 'animals' for 'games involving random letters'.

Because Family Feud - which is like Family Fortunes, only a) American and b) lacking the presence of Les Dennis - has hit the headlines once again after the answer "Schlong" came up. Watch the moment below - and following it, nine other classic game show bloopers. They're all unintentionally hilarious - and sometimes intentionally, sometimes unintentionally, rude - and be warned: they may make you yearn for the heady days when "Can I have a P, please, Bob?" was the rudest thing you ever thought you'd hear someone say on teatime television.

Enjoy, w***ers! (Sorry. Thought we were on Countdown for a minute, then.)

  • "Schlong"

    In the contestants' defence, at least they didn't come up with this answer - <em>the American public did</em>. And the only thing funnier than that? The fact that the studio audience of <em>Family Feud</em> have to shout it out loud. Titter!

  • Countdown w**ker

    This isn't the first time the six-letter W-word has come up on <em>Countdown</em>, of course. But it's the first time a) it's come up this year, and b) new host Nick 'The Apprentice' Hewer has had to deal with it.

  • Wheel Of F****

    If you were on <em>Wheel Of Fortune</em>, would you try to sneakily say "F**k 'em"? Because this contestant did. High-five!

  • Naughty Mr Chips

    Not the follow-up to <em>Goodbye, Mr Chips</em>, but a particularly memorable moment of animation-induced hilarity in <em>Catchphrase</em>. If you can tolerate Roy Walker's uncomfortable laughter, of course.

  • University Challenged

    In which student Bright from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology doesn't live up to his name.

  • "In the ass"

    As in a round of <em>Jeopardy</em>: if "In the ass" was the answer - what do you think the question was? This 1977 clip from <em>The Newlywed Game</em> (America's version of <em>Mr And Mrs</em>) went down in history - although it never made it to air until many years later, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqrf5uGkm8k" target="_hplink">as host Bob Eubank explains</a>.

  • Which part of you is bigger?

    Men: you may not know how women's minds work. But as this <em>Family Feud</em> contestant proves, we know how <em>yours</em> do.

  • Richard Whiteley's erection

    RIP dear Richard Whiteley. You shall forever be remembered for your awkward pauses, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9xHEj3Gk4Q" target="_hplink">your ferret attack</a>, and your diginity in the face of saying naughty words.

  • Carol Vorderman's orgasm

    We can't be exactly sure, but as you can tell by her outfit, hairstyle and response to the letters she's turning over, we <em>think</em> this is the moment Carol Vorderman became Officially Saucy. Sadly the clip above ends too soon - <a href="http://youtu.be/2IDLhJSO57k" target="_hplink">watch the full (non-embeddable) version on YouTube here</a>.

  • South Park: Randy says the N-word

    And finally: the hilarious, pivotal moment in <em>South Park</em>'s episode <em><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/With_Apologies_to_Jesse_Jackson" target="_hplink">With Apologies To Jesse Jackson</a></em>, in which Stan's dad shocks an entire nation on <em>Wheel Of Fortune</em>.
