Pat to Vanna: “Dos mas”

 tv news

Was Pat Sajak also drunk when he gave this interview?

In Burbank we had a place called Los Arcos. … They serve great margaritas. So we would go, Vanna and I would go across and have 2 or 3 or 6. And then come and do the last shows, and have trouble recognizing the alphabet.

Because that’s the only explanation I can think of.

Or it was an attempt to expand the audience beyond the aging (and useless to advertisers) oatmeal-in-my-beard-again crowd. Young people: we understand about margaritas.

Even though Pat totally drove the bus over Vanna with his cavalier confession — and ridiculous story about asking him to smell her fingers — no one was very judgmental. Except Liz Lemon, who seemed pretty upset about it Thursday night, unless it’s because she mistook the ambiguous News 4 promo for news of a DUI:

They're called quotation marks.

Regardless, the revelation was greeted with less consternation than appreciation, reflecting the popular opinion that Pat seems like a fun guy, or at least better than that smug greaseball Trebek. And why not? Other than the titular wheel, there’s no heavy machinery on the show.

So other than whipping out their most devious-looking Sajak photo, People was rather jocular, offering Pat chips and salsa. I can top that. Tequila from my TV Celebrities shot glass set, Mr. Sajak!

And while I’m not going to take the bait and tune in at 11, I suspect WRC-TV’s News 4 team will be sympathetic as well.

“Drunk at work,” they’ll say. “How else could we sit through local TV news?”

Happy 1st birthday 5 Hours A Day! Thank you to our beautiful readers and particularly contributors.
