There a few things more satisfying than an epic game show gaffe. There’s a delicious element of schadenfreude to witnessing the failure of some nerd who was clever enough to make it onto television.

The gaffe is made by a male contestant who incorrectly answers a question. But that’s not the bad part; the bad part is that his incorrect answer implies that he thinks the age of consent is 14 for boys and 12 for girls.
Innocent mistake or Freudian slip? We’ll never know …
