Luck of the Irish

As a follow-up to my previous rant about Irish sensibilities, I can't resist a post about Wheel of Fortune's recent trip to the fabled isle. Pat and Vanna and a few dozen WoF staffers taped clips at various tourist traps, like the "breathtaking Cliffs of Moher" and the "restored original 15th century Knappogue Castle."

Cliffs and castles. Sounds like a board game. Vanna offered some flattering comments about Ireland, including a gush over how she would like to live in the country. She avoided any remarks about drinking, so I think she's safe from the Hibernians.

The WoF folks traveled in black Mercedes vans with blacked-out windows. Black is the color of choice, it seems. Pat and Vanna also baked scones and fed lambs, though not at the same time. Wheel of Fortune will be giving away a trip to Ireland as one of the plugs for Disney's tour operation. At least a lot of people on the show got trips of their own.
