Pat Sajak gets it. The longtime Wheel of Fortune host recently shared a tweet in which he expressed a desire for a world with a little less judgment and a little more encouragement.
Now, whether or not that world is possible remains to be seen. But that’s why Sajak put it in the context of an “alternate universe.” Regardless, we Outsiders like the sentiment. We could all do with a little more emphasis on the things we have in common rather than the things that split us apart.
And hey, we know the disagreements and problems aren’t going to disappear overnight. But with enough effort, a warm fire, maybe a few beers, it may not take an alternate universe to get there someday.
Neither Twitter nor Wheel of Fortune is the real world, but I much prefer an alternate universe where people are happy and friendly, where they don’t judge each other based on politics or race, and where they root for each other to succeed. I appreciate all that more each year.— Pat Sajak (@patsajak) November 12, 2021
The ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Host’s Followers Chime In
The Wheel of Fortune icon admits that his wheelhouse is far from the world most experience every day. And he’s aware that a tweet isn’t going to change anything. But a man can dream, can’t he? His followers on Twitter seem to think so.
Your absolutely right Pat, I love watching the show and just enjoying people having good old fashion FUN! And your right about the reruns of Andy Griffith Show, I too have seen them many times over yet still makes me smile 😊— KG (@KG15712751) November 12, 2021
Ain’t that the truth. It’s hard not to smile when that iconic whistle tune starts playing. Others had a bit of fun with their responses.
I root for all except when we buy vowels that are obvious.— MKE Housewife (@whatKEZsays) November 12, 2021
First of all, we love that Wheel of Fortune is still a thing in this alternate universe. And you know what? If any exceptions are going to be made, unnecessary vowel buyers fit the bill.
Pat Sajak is Bringing Us Together One Twitter Joke at a Time
The Wheel of Fortune host is slowly making his alternate universe a reality. How? By sharing his ideas for bringing meat-eaters and vegans together.
Many of us have absolutely no problem with grilling up some burgers, frying up some bacon, and throwing some cheese on top for good measure. But if all the meat and dairy consumption happens to bring any unwanted heat, some folks are thinking meat-based vegetables just might be the way to go.
Just applied for a patent on my line of meat-based vegetables. Great for keeping peace with vegan friends. The Beefagus is the most promising: USDA Prime Beef cleverly disguised as asparagus spears. The Caulifilet also shows a lot of promise, as do the Porktatoes and Turkmatoes.— Pat Sajak (@patsajak) August 26, 2021
