Whoopee! - As in "Let's make whoopee!" This word
was the censor-sanctioned euphemism for sex used
on THE NEWLYWED GAME/ABC/SYN/1966-90.
Whenever host Bob Eubanks asked questions about
S-E-X, he veiled his queries by using the word
Whoopee! A typical question to the newlyweds:
"When you and your husband first made Whoopee!,
was he a limp shrimp, a stout trout, or a virgin
The wildest segment from the show occurred in
1977 when Bob asked where "specifically" had a
contestant's husband made whoopee with her. The
woman answered' "In the ass."
Of course, her answer was bleeped. But it was
caught on video and resurfaced on a 1980s game
show retrospective in 2002.
The game show 3's A CROWD/SYN/1979-80, a retread
of THE NEWLYWED GAME also used the word
"Whoopee!" For example, "If you and your
secretary decided to make Whoopee! in the
office, what would be the most inventive place
you could thing of?"
Both programs were produced by Chuck Barris, the
creator of THE GONG SHOW.
Where will your husband say
your worst "whoopee" session usually takes
In the bathtub.
In the bathtub?
Yes, because the water
always makes his peenie shrivel up.
During "The Nerds" sketch on a SATURDAY NIGHT
LIVE program in the 1970s, comedian Jane Curtin
played the mother of Lisa Loopner, a nerdy
In an attempt to teach Lisa about the "birds and
the bees," Mrs. Loopner related this little
story. "Making a baby, it's like making egg
salad. You the woman, produce the eggs, and the
man furnishes the mayonnaise.
Of course, you don't need chopped celery. Oh,
I've just given you my egg salad recipe, and I
was saving that for your twenty-first birthday."
