dletter: Sybarite: Gecko Gingrich: "She won an all-expenses paid vacation to Detroit on the show."It was at this point that I knew this was satire.CSB time. The funniest trip prize I ever saw anyone win on a game show was in 1979 when the grand prize on The Joker's Wild was a trip to Iran. The show had obviously been taped before the revolution, and the whole time they were showing the video about how cool and exotic Iran was there was a little disclaimer at the bottom of the screen that a substitute prize of equal value would be available for the winner.Interesting, I was too young to recall a time when a trip to Iran was as "typical holiday fare" I guess as a trip to Egypt.
