“PhD in dong.”

SO, ON LAST night’s American version of Family Fortunes – hosted by a man who is very familiar with telly mortification, one Steve Harvey – there was an answer that didn’t quite sit right with viewers.

People watched on with awe and confusion as this happened:

Yes, 11 out of 100 respondents claimed a “PH.D in dong” was the most desirable quality in a woman

Yes. PhD in dong.

People were flabbergasted

Many questioned whether it’s an actual phrase people say

Surely not.

Steve Harvey, you’ve done it again

Since the Twitter reaction went viral, evidence has come up that the PhD in dong answer was also given back in 2014. So, either this was a repeat episode or it’s a common thing on the Family Feud answer board.

It’s already achieving meme status

With theories coming in left, right and centre for other possible meanings

That must be it.
