The “Wheel of Fortune” host posts a clever tweet about the novel “1984” by George Orwell. He clearly has a dark sense of humor.

“Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak is one of America’s most beloved game show hosts. Known for his light-hearted sense of humor on the show, Sajak shows a different side on social media. While his posts are still funny, fans are seeing his darker side on Twitter.

Sajak posts a clever tweet referencing “1984” by George Orwell. The novel is about a dystopian world under high government surveillance. Big Brother, a popular reference to the book, represents the world’s violent dictatorship. It is about a totalitarian government that has taken its citizens’ rights away. Orwell’s book is dark and highly political, warning readers of these dangers coming to life.

The “Wheel of Fortune” host makes Orwell’s point in 280 characters.

“Visited my local public library this past weekend for the first time in years,” he starts. “Very nice place, though I was surprised to find Orwell’s ‘1984’ misfiled under ‘fiction.’ Being a good citizen, I rectified the oversight.”

Those who know what the novel is about find Sajak’s tweet to be clever, but also true. In these divisive times, parallels can be made between the book and politics today.

“I read 1984 in the summer of 1984 while it could still be considered futuristic fiction. I didn’t know at the time, I would just wait 37 years I’d live it,” one fan replies.

“We could have prevented that if everyone visited libraries more often,” another says.

If you are looking for a new and clever Twitter profile to follow, Pat Sajak is a good choice.

Andre Ingram’s Big ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Win

Former NBA player Andre Ingram won big on his episode of “Wheel of Fortune” last week. The sports star was the show’s final Secret Santa winner of the year. Instead of taking home his $31,000 in earnings, Ingram decides to pay it forward, giving it to a SPIN ID member.

The SPIN ID program gives fans a chance to win big cash prizes! Although it is not an invitation to be on the game show itself, it is an opportunity to feel the rush of winning at home. If your numbers are called during the episode, you’re a winner!

Andre Ingram is a SPIN ID member to this day! As a huge fan of the show, he feels a rush giving his winnings to someone else.

“I know that feeling when Secret Santa comes around. I’m like waiting for my number to call. So to be in reverse and to be able to give it [the cash prize] to somebody [else] is just amazing, you know. So hopefully I gave them enough!”
