Boy George Whammy

The case for Mandatory Offensive Language

When an unedited memo comes down from corporate telling folks at Veridian Dynamics that they must "now" use offensive or insulting language in the workplace, the creative vulgar-juices start flowing. The scene that aired was funny enough, but I can't help but think that if a version containing these NSFW outtakes had aired, the ensuing ratings would have saved the show. — Thog

The case for Boy George Whammy

Press Your Luck's mascot the Whammy tried to keep its finger on the pulse of early-to-mid 1980s pop culture. The most recognizable version of this goal is the Boy George Whammy, which sang a modified version of "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me."

Yeah, it was weird, the way that Press Your Luck was always a little weird.
