Vanna Remote (Slang) Phrase used to describe a person who loses a remote and is then forced to stand in front of the TV and manually change it until he or she finds something suitable to watch.
I have absolutely no gossip to relate to you with regards to Vanna White. For some inexplicable reason, she was on my brain this morning and I got to wondering whatever happened to her. I realize, of course, that she's still on TV five nights a week, but unless you're 10 years old and visiting your grandparents, I can't imagine anyone would have any reason to even know that "Wheel of Fortune" is still airing on television, 26 years since it began. Does she still turn the letters? Surely, even she's got a remote for that now so that she can stand around with Pat and turn the letters from the distance.
I did find some recent photos of Vanna. from earlier this year. And you know what? For a 51 year old lady, she's looking pretty goddamn fine. But I'll never forget the summer of 1987. I was 12. Slippery When Wet
, was the number one album in the country. Adventures in Babysitting
was out in theaters. And Vanna White was in Playboy
That was a goddamn good summer.
And there you go, folks. Webster's is my Bitch: The only gossip website on the interwebs that'll do a completely pointless and random post on Vanna White. Tell all your friends about us.
Also, after the cut, a random highlight from "Wheel of Fortune."
