“The Birth of Venus (detail)” by Sandro Botticelli
Merv and I also like the idea of doing a “Wheel of Fortune” GNAY spinoff. The word puzzles will all revolve around my life and work (of course). For instance, in the food and drink category – GNAY’s favourite beverage – “can I buy a ‘B’ please Alex”. That sort of thing. But, what has us really excited is that Venus has signed on in the “Vanna White” role! We think having a naked 15th century goddess spinning the letters is a stroke of (my) genius and will really boost the ratings. Merv has run the nudity thing through his legal department and they say “no problem – she’s a goddess, not a woman”. Even Trebek likes the idea!
