TechnoRetro Dads: Is The Wheel Of Fortune In Jeopardy

Who didn’t want to “come on down” to be the next contestant on The Price Is Right?

Who wouldn’t have spun the Wheel of Fortune to guess a letter in hangman?

Where wasn’t Chuck Woolery or Alex Trebek on daytime television?

Between commercials on daytime television in the ‘70s and ‘80s, kids on summer vacation were entertained by the antics of common everyday people trying to strike it rich (or at least win some prizes) on the various game shows that were popular in the days of very few channels.

Sure, you recognize Mom and Dad are palindromes, but did you notice the racecar?  It was a Toyota.  Yep, that was another one.  It could be expanded in context, too: A Toyota. Race fast, safe car. A Toyota.  Wow, that was long!  And we saw a Jawa sew DNA.  Okay, that really didn’t make much sense, but if it was an offworld Jawa, it might explain something about baby Yoda.  Since this is the last show before Palindrome Day, shazbazzar and JediShua wanted to remind you that next Sunday is 2020.02.02 (or 02.02.2020).  So get busy going backwards and forwards at the same time.  Wait, isn’t that what TechnoRetro Dads is all about?
