The 45-year-old game show “Wheel of Fortune” tread onto some unusually “kinky” territory this week by running a puzzle solution about sausages, *cough*.

Brushing Up On My Italian Sausage,” the eye-catching puzzle solution read …

Say what!?

The solution, which reportedly appeared on Thursday’s edition of “Wheel of Fortune,” went mega-viral afterward, spurring confusion, mockery and complaints.

Look:

What made the solution so “lurid” and “kinky” thus inappropriate for a family show was the fact that, well, the shape of a sausage shares something in common with the shape of, *cough*, male genitalia. Yeah …

This, of course, raises the question of whether “Brushing Up On My Italian Sausage” was supposed to be some sort of double entendre. There’s just one problem. Prior to the phrase’s appearance on “Wheel of Fortune” Thursday, it didn’t exist. There were no examples on Google or elsewhere of anybody ever uttering the bizarre phrase.

And hilariously enough, as of Saturday morning, viewers still had no clue what the hell the solution was even supposed to mean. All they knew was that it didn’t sound right.

But some have speculated that perhaps the solution was supposed to contain a punctuation mark of some sort — a comma or a colon, for instance.

In that case, the solution would have read, “Brushing Up On My Italian: Sausage.” That would admittedly make sense.

But for Adam Goodell, the contestant who won $2,450 by solving the puzzle, none of the drama even mattered, no doubt.

Listen to him reading off the solution below:

This isn’t the first time “Wheel of Fortune” has been mired in controversy. Nor will it likely be the last.

In fact, just last month the game show made headlines again after a contestant offered a very risqué (and quite incorrect answer) to one of the show’s puzzles.

When contestant Marie Leo’s turn arrived, all that could be seen on the board was “—–ng -a–.” After reportedly panicking for a second, Leo tried solving the puzzle by blurting out, “Chasing Tail.”

*BUZZER*

Wrong!

Watch:

The solution was “Kicking Back.”

Oh well!

Something similar happened in 2017, except this time it involved Twitter users who rushed to their keyboards to incorrectly solve the puzzle seen below:

The proposed answers were interesting, to say the least …

Look:

Yeah, no, the answer was “Back At Work.” Nice try, though!

Below are some more seemingly “kinky” answers from the show (*Language warning):
