Risque Countdown conundrum gives Irish viewers a chuckle
A risqué Countdown conundrum at least gave Irish viewers a chuckle yesterday.
A re-run of the popular word-puzzle show had a countdown conundrum of ‘LONGMICKEY’ – something the players seemed oblivious to.
The word turned out to be an anagram of ‘mockingly’.
The anagram was on a 1990s re-run of the show being shown on Challenge TV – the original broadcast made years before the advent of social media enabled viewers share the gaff.
And no - we don't have evidence to suggest Mrs Brown was a contestant.
