A Wheel of Fortune contestant named “Kevin” scored an epic fail when he was unable to solve a fairly straightforward puzzle. The contestant had only one letter missing in his clue: “A Streetcar Na-ed Desire.”
Even people who aren’t familiar with Tennessee Williams‘ Pulitzer Prize-winning play would easily guess “M” because it’s the only word that makes sense in context.
When Kevin replied, “K,” the stunned audience let out a loud gasp.

After Kevin missed, his opponent correctly solved the puzzle for “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak tried to lighten the mood by joking to the contestant: “Although you got the right answer, I’d rather see Kevin’s play.”
Sajak took a parting shot at Kevin (via ABC 6), snarking that he’s sure Kevin’s friends won’t tease him at all when he returns home. “The nice thing I can tell from meeting you, you’re a nice guy and I’ll bet you have really nice friends,” Sajak said. “They’re not going to give you any grief at all. Good luck with that.”
While the Wheel of Fortune gaffe was funny, it’s likely these incidents will occur more frequently as literacy rates and education standards continue to plummet across the United States.
Last week, the New York state Board of Regents proposed a measure to eliminate the literacy exam given to prospective teachers, saying the tests are racist.

The board cited the fact that a disproportionate percentage of black and Hispanic candidates failed the literacy exam to support their claim that hiring teachers who can actually read and write is “racist.”
And these are the people that leftists want teaching our children.
