The ‘Pundemonium’ segment required team members to guess the bad puns in oddball TV news reports (you know the kind).
It wasn’t so much that George wasn’t able to offer any ideas, but that the poor bloke spent most of the segment staring at the words on the screen behind him.
Perhaps he was looking for inspiration, but it reminded me of people who stare blankly at a TV test pattern as if expecting something magical to happen.
It was pretty clear he hadn’t been rehearsed in the segment (not his fault). Was there a monitor in front of him? Probably.
YouTube has the full episode but pick up from 34:50 to take a gander at “Cows on the Loose in Launceston.”
It’s not gonna change by staring at it, George!
